It’s no secret that long-distance relationships are very difficult. Whether you and your partner have to spend just a few weeks apart or you’re in a permanent long-distance relationship where you don’t see each other in person for months and even years on end, having sex via Skype, Facetime or other video chat software can enable you and your partner to have a fulfilling sex life without being in the same town or even country. Skype sex can be awkward the first few times you try it, so we’ve prepared a few tips to help you.
Start by having phone sex
If you’re not feeling 100% confident about the idea of having sex on Facetime or Skype, you can take things slow and tease your partner by having sex without turning on the video - just like old-school phone sex. You can tell your partner what you’re wearing or how you’re playing with yourself, describe your fantasies, such as what you’d like to do to your partner or have them do to you, etc.
Try masturbating during Skype sex
Masturbation is something that can spice up virtually any romantic or sexual Skype call. There are several options you can try, for example, one partner can watch as the other one masturbates, give directions, dirty talk, etc. Alternatively, both partners can masturbate at the same time to mimic the experience of having sex. You can also make things more fun by using vibrators and other sex toys during Skype masturbation sessions.
Long-distance sex toys
Another fun way to have sexual experiences with your partner while being apart is to try using long-distance sex toys. The principle of these is simple - one person has the toy while the other one can change the settings such as vibration speed and intensity on the toy through the app on their phone. The only downsides of these toys are that they can be quite expensive and there aren’t many options on the market - just 4-5 companies that produce a handful of models.
