Couples who are apart for most of the time can sometimes get too used to being alone. Taking your partner or relationship for granted can be very easy. But being committed to keep the intimacy alive and make each other feel close is more rewarding.
Couples in a long-distance relationship can’t give their partners a quick hug or take their hands. Physically touching someone can say, “I’m here” louder than words can. It becomes challenging to make your partner feel your presence. But if you’re up for the challenge and want to get creative, here are some ways you can take the spark in your intimacy and turn it into a fully-fledged burning fire.
Ways To Keep Intimacy Alive While Working Away
Spicing Things Up By Sending Teasing Pictures And Videos
If you happen to feel particularly sexy on a given day, use that opportunity to take some pictures of yourself and send them to your partner.
Ask them for their pictures. Make them strip while video chatting. This bit is about making them feel wanted.
Have Erotic Conversations
You already picture what you’ll do to your partner when you can get your hands on them. Why not tell them that?
Sex-talk can be evocative. It’ll also give you an idea of what your partner fantasizes about and if they are down to participate in your fantasies. You can kick things up a notch by sending them pictures when they’re turned on from your conversation.
Engage as many senses as you can and play with the timing of when you introduce them to your virtual sex sessions. I understand it can be more intimidating to vocalize specific thoughts than actually doing them. If you’re feeling awkward, remember all you have to do is be enthusiastic. Don’t get too worked up about sounding sexy.
Trying Out Internet-Based Sex Toys
Get your partner a sex toy that you can control while engaging in mutual masturbation. There are so many options available out there for both men and women. You can both get one and control each other’s settings through an app.
Virtually, that is as close to sex you can get. Remember how we just talked about engaging all senses. I think it is better to introduce these toys later after you’re both used to phone sex.
Most of these toys are ideal for solo use. It would make for a great present either way.
Male Chastity Devices
Admittedly, this one’s not for everyone. But if your partner finds the idea of giving over control of their most intimate body part and their desire to you, then this one is great.
To explain why this kink is popular, sex experts point out that men in our society are expected to be in charge of every situation and never relinquish control. Wearing a male chastity device is all about letting go of that control to your partner.
There is this masochist thrill of not being able to get off when men feel that urge. Their partners can play on this and tease them some more to get them even more worked up.
Wearing a male chastity device is a game of control and, if you’re both willing to participate, can be gratifying.
Make Plans For When You Will Reunite
Now, this has to be the best part of staying apart, a long-awaited reunion of two people desperate for each other’s company. It’s the culmination of all the built-up tension you’ve experienced. Focus on making the reunion memorable for both of you.
Start planning for your reunion in advance. If you’ve spent a long time apart, keep your schedules as clear as possible and give each other time. Do the things your partner loves and the things you love doing with your partner.
If possible, you can change the setting and go on a romantic getaway. Whatever you do, plan ahead of time. People expect spontaneous romance, but it takes effort. I’d say the effort is what makes whatever you’re doing romantic in the first place. We all love it when someone shows us that they’ve been thinking of us. Show your partner that love and make them feel cared for.
Maintaining a healthy relationship is hard work. Distance only makes it harder to manage. If you’re determined to make it work and put in the effort, Your intimacy and relationship will only grow stronger.
