Unlike any other during the year, you’ll find its origins in consumerism as much as in the early Christian mythos. Having this in mind, there’s quite a bit of story hiding behind it. Vocalised as one of the days where true love is witnessed and felt all around the world, you’ll find many people will disagree with this assessment. Even though it has seen major popularity in mainstream media, there seems to be quite a bit of controversy here! The main thing is that this holiday ignores the vast majority of the population that is in fact - single. This article will, therefore, explore the tradition behind this day, as well as analyze its representation in the adult industry.

One of the hallmarks of Valentine’s Day is gifting. Both giving and receiving gifts during this time is one of its trademarks! If you’re in a loving and giving relationship, this is usually something along the lines of a card or a romantic getaway. Cards and flowers are an especially popular way to express your emotions to a significant other, especially in the USA! There is also Cupid, the unofficial representation of lovers and the very act of falling in love. Gifting and mythical creatures, what else you could possibly wish for? Well, a lot of people wish for a date or a partner during this time. That’s why it's foolish looking at Valentine’s singularly as a lovers holiday, as there’s much more to consider here! For all those lonely souls out there, there’s always porn to keep you feeling loved and occupied.
