TRUE LOVE They say romance is dead!? Who do they think they are?

I hope you will agree that as far as Bad Taste Bears are concerned, love is consistently 'in the air.' And to celebrate the launch of our brand new True Love valentines figurine, we thought we'd try and spice up your love life with a BTB top 10 romantic TIPS.

Let us know what you think of our list and who YOU would have in your top 10 valentines Bad Taste Bears...

10. Puppy Love - Not to be mistaken for true love, puppy love is more of an animal instinct. You'd have to be blind to miss it when it is starring you in the face...
9. For the love of God - If all else fails, why not turn to religion in order to get your kicks? Get thee to a nunnery!8. An idiots guide to Love - Lovers manuals can often help to spice up your love life! The Karmasutra might be a good place to start. Stay away from a guide to muff diving though.

7. Virtual Love - Many lonely lovers end up finding companionship online these days. Just make sure that you're enjoying cyber love with a 20 year old fitness trainer and NOT a 20 stone truck driver called Angus.
6. Say it with FLOWERS - Don't start handing over body parts, it just gets creepy.

5. Foridden fruit - Can sometimes seem very exciting. The reality isn't as exciting and the guy can often end up being a bit of a snake.

4. Love Buzz - If your fella just doesn't have the stamina, why not try a bit of battery run action? Look out for battery acid though!? Owwwwww.
3. DIY - Do it yourself!
2. Plug and Play - Sometimes it just FITS. The electricity is just right and you find the POWER of love prevails.. Bleugh (sorry I'm making myself feel sick!?)

1. Dead and Loving it - Til death do us part (and then rise from the dead again.)
Necromance is eternal even when you are dead and rotting.
Why not buy a Bad Taste Bear for your loved one this Valentines Day? Plug, plug...
