Lockdown rules are being relaxed and we can all begin to see our family and friends from other households again, which we’re all excited about. We still aren’t allowed people from other households into our homes or within two feet of each other, which means that getting sexy with your sweetheart is still of the menu if you don’t live with them.
This modern-day #sexban has created lots of fun on Twitter and social media, which is a welcome source of light relief. Funny tweets aside, lack of intimacy is no laughing matter for many people who are separated from their partners.
Creating and maintaining intimacy is important in all relationships whether you live together or don’t, so to help keep your love life alive, we’ve put together 5 suggestions for getting around the #sexban this summer
How to stay intimate during the #sexban this summer
Let your fingers do the talking and practice your sexting technique. It’s the perfect way to drop them a dirty message about what you’d like to be doing with them at any time of day or night.
- Phone sex
Talking dirty over the phone may have given way to egg-plants, peaches and splashing water emojis, but they’re no replacement for hearing your lover gasping orgasmically down the phone.
Try telling each other what you want to do to each other or what you’re imagining them doing to you. A real treat for the imagination.
- Video sex
If you’re a more visual person or love showing off, set up a sexy video call to practice your best cam-girl moves and let your lover get an eyeful of your most intimate area as you pleasure yourself.
Choose some of our sexy lingerie dress up in and slip out of.
- App-controlled sex toys
Vibrators and stimulators that can be controlled via an app mean you can play even when you’re far away, set up a virtual date night and video call so your partner can watch as they bring you to orgasm with one of these app-controlled sex toys.
- His and her connected sex toys
Make it more interactive with his and her remote connected sex toys from Kiiroo.
These toys are able to connect from anywhere in the world and respond to the movements of the other toy, so you can feel your partners every move through the vibrations.
Intimacy isn’t just about sex, make time to tell each other that you love and appreciate each other every day will help keep the bond between you strong.
