Cupid’s arrows may not strike for everyone, but Valentine’s week gets us talking — and writing — about matters of the heart. In this issue we consider special socks said to heat up female orgasms and sex ed. We learn about Kizomba dancing and the rules of attraction. Three Vermont couples who met in foreign lands share their international love stories. A local wedding planner talks trends in Green Mountain nuptials, and we offer a handy quiz for rating the big day’s Vermontiness. A young mother muses on the dilemma, and etiquette, of the childfree wedding. Finally, we indulge our sweet teeth at Red Kite Candy, and suggest seven things to do on V-Day, even if you’re solo.
