Relationships can be hard, and add in distance and it can seem impossible. But there are plenty of people who not only make it work, but also keep the passion and intimacy alive.
When it feels like the distance is getting in the way of the desire in your relationship, it is time to evaluate what you both need and make a plan of action to keep things fresh and sexy. Perhaps the biggest issue with a long distance relationship is the fact that your sex life is taking a hit. And while sex is not the end-all, be-all of romance, it certainly can help to keep the fires burning.
We may not be able to keep your relationship at the top of its game, but we can certainly give you some ideas for how to keep things hot and sexy even with many miles between you. So, get your passions flowing and see if these tips can keep the desire strong.
Sext Your Partner
Sending your partner steamy texts is a great way to keep the desire strong between you. Sexting might seem like something teenagers do, the reality is that adults of all ages can enjoy naughty texts from their partner. Think of these texts as a chance to talk dirty no matter where your partner is.
Dirty talk can be a fun way to heat things up in the bedroom. And considering the distance between you and your partner right now, there simply isn’t a bedroom for that dirty talk. Send them a text with some strategic emojis, or using descriptions that will leave them wanting more. Perhaps you want to add in some sexy selfies to really boost the text. Make them tasteful and if you are worried about discretion, we recommend hiding your face or even choosing small bits of skin that will set them off.
You will find that these sexy texts make it clear that you are thinking of them all the time. Plus, they will appreciate the fact that you are willing to spice things up in text to keep the relationship burning bright.
Distance Friendly Sex Toys
There are sex toys out there that are perfect for long distance relationships. With the help of apps, these toys can make playing with your partner possible in a way that will truly enrich your relationship. Toys are no longer all about playing solo, and with the help of toys like the We-Vibe Sync or the We-Vibe Jive, you and your partner can enjoy some fun and interactive sexy time. Using the app for the toy, your partner can control the action just like if they were in the room with you.
And if you want to make the experience even more immersive, take the fun to a video chat. Whether Face Time or Skype, video will allow your partner to see the action and what they are doing to you as they use the toy.
You might be worried about how using sex toys will impact your sex life when you are finally back together, but the reality is that it often makes things even hotter than ever. Not only does it help build up the anticipation, but it also give your partner a chance to learn some new things about what turns you on and gets you off.
Everyone loves a surprise gift. No matter how old you are, getting an unexpected gift will be a pick me up unlike any other. And when it comes to sending gifts, there are any number of options for what you could send, whether it is a sweet treat, a comfort gift, or something hot and spicy, this gift is going to let your partner know that you love and miss them.
And if you choose to go with a steamy gift option, we recommend mixing it up. Choose a sexy toy, an erotic book, or even some sexy clothing for them to wear. When they use the toy, wear the clothing, or read the book, they will be thinking of you and turned on, which is a win-win situation.
But, we definitely recommend that even if you send a spicy gift, add in something non-sexy as well. It will make it clear that you want them for more than just sex and sexy time.
Long distance relationships take a lot of work to sustain, and when you are trying to keep the desire strong between you and your partner, these tips can help keep the flames of passion burning. Remember that communication is critical, and even if you are trying to keep things sexy, it still requires talking and being open and honest with each other.
