How to have a safe and satisfying sex life during a pandemic.
Have you felt isolated over the last year? How do you connect or fulfil your sexual needs when you have to stay away from people? It’s difficult, but here are some ideas:
Sex during a pandemic can be hard. You might be separated from your partner, you may be single and feeling isolated, but it can be an amazing time to start focusing on other sides of your sexuality and try out some new toys.
If there was ever a time for solo sex, now is the time! Take this time to really get to know your body, from your head to your toes. Often when we are with a partner, we focus on what they like and how they make us feel, but this is a time to get really selfish and think purely about you and what you like. No one knows your body like you do. That makes you your ultimate sexual partner! So enjoy this time alone and when you do meet someone, you will be so much more aware and confident of what you want.
My best! There’re so many options! Facetime, Skype, Whatsapp video call…you name it! If you’ve got a partner, this can be a fun way of creating intimacy with distance. Let’s talk this old school ideology to the next level. Dress up, wear something you feel sexy in, and let each other know what you’d do if you were together. Mutual masturbation anyone? This can actually help show your partner how you like to be touched, which can make it so much better when you’re back in each other’s arms.
Romeo, oh Romeo…kidding. Look, I know it sounds cheesy but listen up! Since dating apps like tinder have made it so quick and easy to meet someone and have sex, it has taken away some of the charm of the chase and getting to know someone. Casual sex can be amazing and fun, but now could be the time to really get to know someone, and who knows…fall in love?
Remote Sex Toys
Sex toys are so advanced now that you could wear something while you’re in one place and your partner be in a completely different area. Not only is this a super fun way to play with your partner, but it can also actually help introduce sex toys into a partnered sex life if that had been awkward to do so before.
Life has changed and it’s forced us to slow down and think about what we really want from life. This applies to our sex life. Sometimes we are so busy with people that we don’t get a moment actually ask ourselves if we are happy and if we are really doing the things we want to be doing. Sex will always be there, but use this time to reflect on it, ow it’s made you feel, what you really want in a partner or if there are some things you need to work on in your sex life.
