How Mutual Masturbation and Sex Toys can help Long Distance Relationships

Long-distance relationships are common in the modern day with studying, working and living abroad being commonplace. However, even if it’s for a short time or for a more extended period, being a long-distance couple can be difficult. Whether it’s for one person or both in the relationship, one of the common problems can be maintaining sufficient sexual intimacy.

In this article, we’ll take a look at why using mutual masturbation and sex toys can help you cope with this issue during your time apart.

Long-Distance Relationships and Masturbation

Contents

Long-distance relationships can be trying for most couples, whether it is a lack of companionship, frequent communication or sexual intimacy. The need for intimacy can increase when you spend time away from your partner, and sex may not be possible for extended periods of time.

Distance and lack of intimacy are some of the most common reasons why such relationships tend to suffer. However, nowadays more options than ever are available to help stay connected; your smartphone and things such as remote sex toys can help keep intimacy alive over a long distance. Many couples find using these devices for mutual masturbation can be a creative, fun and exciting way to explore new avenues of sexual intimacy. 

Masturbating while in a relationship is not only normal, it is healthy, and for long-distance couples, it can help your relationship remain close and strong.

Mutual Masturbation Options



There are various options available to help spice up sexual intimacy while physically distant or even in different timezones. Here are some ideas that you could try.

Phone Sex and Sexting

Phone sex has been around as long as phones have, and even more so with advancements in technology. Your voice, studies show, can convey sexual desire easily via tone and can be a big turn on for your partner. Just talking about what gets you going can set the scene for mutual masturbation, plus it’s easy to have a sense of closeness and control by directing your partner’s actions or describing what you’re doing.

If phone sex isn’t your thing or time zones make that difficult then you can always use a messaging app to sext with your partner. A simple text can go a long way to heightening excitement and keeping things fresh with a different kind of intimacy. It can even be used as a form of teasing during your own solo masturbation session. 

Sex Toys and Remote Sex Toys

Incorporating sex toys into your long-distance relationship can make a great addition to the above ideas. Some can even be remotely controlled, which can help you feel more involved, by allowing you to control the device for your partner's pleasure, or as a way to tease and play.

Bring it up with your partner and see if you're both interesting in trying something out. and what you'd both like to get out of it. Whether achieving an orgasm is essential or maybe just exploring more intimate long-distance mutual masturbation techniques. 

Recently, especially since the global pandemic, introducing sex toys in a long distance relationship has been gaining popularity around the world.
