We’re willing to bet that the number of long distance relationships skyrocketed in 2020 thanks to the pandemic. And even if your partner lives around the corner, you might still not be able to spend time with them in-person. For the time being, if you don’t live with your partner, your relationship is more likely to feel long-distance than not right now.
If you find yourself in that situation for the first time this Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of ways you can celebrate safely without losing out on physical intimacy and erotic thrill.
In you’re in a LDR and haven’t bought an app-controlled toy yet, your sex life is about to level up! For example, the We-Vibe Chorus accommodates long-distance play via the free We-Connect app. Just log in, sync up and let the fun begin.
The We-Vibe is designed to fit anyone’s unique body, so both partners can enjoy the toy’s customizable vibrations. With that in mind, there are endless ways you can enjoy it together. Take turns pleasuring each other over video chat, do some power exchange play while texting or have your lover take a (safe) walk while wearing the vibe — with you at the controls. Then talk about it over Valentine’s Day drinks and see how long it takes before you’re both feeling frisky again.
Bring brainy back
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: your most powerful sex organ is between your ears. So stimulate each other’s intellect with a long-distance book club for two!
Together, choose a book of sexy how-to’s, erotic fiction or another intimate topic (audiobooks totally count). Agree to finish it by Valentine’s Day and share your thoughts during your long-distance date — it’ll make for stimulating dinner conversation, and will probably rev you both up for any virtual sexy time you have planned.
Even if you can’t be physically together this year, a meeting of the minds is just as powerful.
Re-learn each other’s bodies
While you’re apart and communicating virtually via text, phone and video, you might start to feel some separation from each other’s bodies. This effect is common, but can decrease the feeling of intimacy between you and your partner.
To remedy it and stay feeling physically close, there are a few things you can do that would be a particularly sweet treat on Valentine’s Day. for example, have a full-body FaceTime and describe in detail everything you love about your partner’s body, from head to toe. Take it a step further and try out a favorite vibrator, dildo, sensation toy or other sex toy, describing in exquisite detail how it makes you feel while your partner watches. Not only does it make for a hot date, but it will also keep you both attuned to each other’s bodies even at a distance.
Speaking of favorite toys — we’ve got plenty of new arrivals that would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for you or your sweetheart. Have a look around, pick out something exciting and get ready for a hot, intimate and satisfying Valentine’s Day date!
