interactive phone sex: a pandemic solution for couples

The pandemic has left so many people in isolation, and some couples have found themselves separated. Social distancing is a critical factor in helping end the pandemic and save lives, but people’s libidos don’t simply vanish during a crisis. So, it makes sense that phone sex has gone through a resurgence since the pandemic began. Interactive phone sex has become an integral solution for couples who don’t know when they’ll be able to have sex in person again.

Phone Sex Brings a Sense of Adventure

Having phone sex can turn monotony on its head. There is no “missionary” with phone sex, and the shift in the environment means that you don’t have your old playbook to rely on. Interactive phone sex can help shift you out of your comfort zone, which is a good thing.

Phone sex means different things to different people, now that phones typically are a combination of phone, camera, video camera, text message platform, and email. You can use any of these platforms to have sex. Figuring out which combination is best can be fun since it caters to people who are stimulated visually, auditorily, or by banter and eloquence alone. Changing up how you have phone sex is part of the excitement.

Phone sex also allows you to explore experiences you might not be interested in engaging in person. Some sites offer the opportunity for you to add a third during a virtual threesome if that’s something you’ve toyed with in the past. However, it’s essential that you use a site with rigorous privacy protocols to protect your identity—and know that not all sites check each user’s age. So, be careful when choosing your platform. Also, keep in mind that many of the most commonly used platforms have policies against nudity, including Facebook, Zoom, Skype, and Google Hangouts. It’s worth doing a little research so that you don’t get kicked off a platform you regularly use for work or pleasure.

It Can Also Help You Connect

Phone sex technology has improved significantly over the past couple of years, and the strides made mean that phone sex can be a very intimate experience. Haptic technology has joined forces with sex toys, so you can transmit the feeling of touch no matter how far away you are. Sites like Arousr have paved the way for phone sex to become what it is right now. You can send your partner pressure, vibrations, and even strokes, making the distance between you feel much smaller.

Further, trying something new together can help bring couples closer. Psychology backs this idea up because when couples try something new together it can often reveal a new side of their partners. Seeing them in a new light is key to keeping a long-term relationship interesting. Having phone sex for the first time can also feel a bit intimidating, but the adrenaline rush of doing so is what keeps so many people coming back for more.

Phone Sex Isn’t Going Anywhere

The pandemic will end sometime in the near future, but people’s affinity for phone sex is unlikely to go away. Many unforeseeable things interrupt a couple’s plans to be together in person—canceled flights, work-related travel, and yes, global pandemics, too. For couples who can’t find jobs in the same location and are in long distances for the long-term, phone sex is a necessity. And for people with specific disabilities for whom leaving the house is difficult, phone sex is an easy way to stay connected. The pandemic forced many couples to open their minds to new forms of intimacy, and it’s doubtful that the appeal of routine sex will undermine the popularity of phone sex.
