National Sex Holidays to Put in the Diary in 2022


Jan 6th: National Cuddle Up Day

Every year the US responds to post-Christmas and cold weather misery by celebrating National Cuddle Up Day. Grab your nearest cuddle partner - friend, lover, pet, toy - and snuggle up.

Jan 21st: International Fetish Day

International Fetish Day began in the UK in 2008 before being quickly embraced by the rest of the world. It’s a day dedicated to the fetish community worldwide and to encouraging openness and kink-positivity.


Feb 5th: National Shower With a Friend Day

This holiday began in order to encourage people to shower with a shower filter. But it’s evolved in a more fun way, and is now seen as a day to share a shower with a friend or lover.

One bonus? It saves water! Unless you’re in there for a very long time.

Feb 14th: Valentine’s Day

This couldn’t be left off our sex holidays calendar. Valentine’s Day is all about love and romance. Whether or not you find it cringe-worthy, it’s a day to tell your loved one you love them.


March 3rd: National Threesome Day

Spring is almost here! Open your relationship or go out and meet some sexy strangers to have your best ever threesome on National Threesome Day.

March 14th: Steak and Blowjob Day

This unofficial national day rose on the internet as a male response to Valentine’s Day, which they argued was all about women.

On this day, women are supposed to cook a male partner steak and perform fellatio. The ideology of this day is obviously problematic (and heteronormative), but made slightly better by the fact that Cake and Cunnilingus Day is only a month away.


April 14th: Cake and Cunnilingus Day

This is another internet-bred holiday, conceived in response to Steak and Blowjob Day. On Cake and Cunnilingus Day women are supposed to - you guessed it - eat cake and get head.

At the same time or on the same day? Up to you.
