L is for Light Bondage
What better day that Valentine’s Day to spice it up in the bedroom? Yeah, we know some of you are a bit more advanced in the kink department and if dungeons and animal costumes are more your speed, you might want to skip this section.
But if you are still on vanilla training wheels in the kink department, you might want to consider picking up a copy of “Naughty Knots: Light Bondage and Bedroom Tricks.” This handy little hardcover book will show you the ropes (get it? Yeah, we hate ourselves too for saying it ...) of erotic bondage and knot-tying to restrain your partner simply and safely. It also shows readers how to fashion a rope corset or a riding crop for spanking.
Yeah, the myriad items you can weave together with rope look complex and time-consuming, but if you are ever stranded on an island with a willing partner and a large spindle of rope, you’ll be glad to be able to MacGuyver up some bondage gear to pass the time.
U is for Undergarments
A new and fancy piece of underwear or lingerie is always a required and welcome sight on Valentine’s Day. By far the best place in the city for lingerie and bras is Coeur Intimate Apparel, 132 S. 17th St. (www.coeurlingerie.com).
The upscale intimates boutique is known far and wide for its friendly service, high-quality materials, stylish brands, extensive selection and expert bra fittings for all body types.
