Yes, Valentine’s Day is a capitalist money trap. But it’s also an opportunity to do something special with your someone special, who let’s be honest you don’t always appreciate as much as you should. And since Tuesday is not exactly the most romantic night for Valentine’s Day, there’s plenty of love-themed festivities happening all weekend, too.
Get naughty: LUST is an evening of “extended foreplay” that will transform Lot 45 into a garden of earthly delights. Dinner is served on naked bodies, followed by a night of sexually provocative performances — have you ever seen a human candelabra? — and erotic art installations, play areas, live music and “kidnappings” for unique one-on-one experiences. Fri., Feb. 10, 7 p.m.-3 a.m., 411 Troutman St., Bushwick
Decode the naughty clues: You’ll need both of your (likely lapsed) stores of art and history knowledge to crack Watson Adventures’ Naked at the Met scavenger hunt. As part of a team of up to six, you’ll have to solve tricky questions that will lead you to barely clad statues, nude paintings, anatomically correct armor and more at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. 18+, Sat., Feb. 11, 5-7:30 p.m., $44.50, 1000 Fifth Ave.
Sex tips from musicians: The Venn Diagram of heavy metal fans who are also into the Bee Gees probably looks more like two circles, but if you’re in it, Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond is your everything. Clash tribute band Straight To Hell wrote a (medically vetted) musical guide called “The Joy of Sex" that reimagines songs by Madonna, Prince, Rod Stewart and other pop icons in their heavy metal style, each paired with an illustration of something fun to try after the show. 21+, Sat., Feb. 11, 8:30 p.m., $12-$15, Rough Trade, 64 N. Ninth St., Brooklyn
