Let’s talk toys. No… Let’s talk toys together. Because if we’re being honest, sex toys aren’t just for when you’re flying solo. Between 80 and 90% of women and men who have purchased things like dildos and vibrators have admitted to doing so in order to bring them to play with a partner. But what happens when you and your SO can’t be in the same bedroom at playtime?
Long-distance relationships are becoming more and more common in an ever-globalizing world. And that means that couples are seeking ways to keep love, lust, and passion alive across state, country, and even continent lines. Fortunately, technology is on their side. Forward-thinking sex toy companies are stepping up to meet demand and inventing the kinds of toys that will make your next Skype session one for the books. Here’s a look at the next generation of interactive toys–look out, Google Glass.
Lovesense Long-Distance Toys
Lovesense has come up with a fun and immersive long-distance sex experience with their his and hers toy set. The set includes a male toy (“Max”) and a female version (“Nora”) that work together to mimic each other’s motions for their respective partners, simulating actual sex. The faster Max moves, the quicker Nora thrusts, and Nora’s speed in turn determines Max’s vibrations and contractions. You can even preprogram a sex pattern for later, making this a particularly popular toy with military couples.
Empire Labs Clone a Willy/Clone a Pussy
Really missing your significant other? (Or rather, are you really missing a particular part of them?) When a store-bought toy just isn’t enough, you can literally create an exact copy of your partner’s happy place with this kit–you can even make it vibrate!
Vibease Smart Vibrator
A pocket-sized vibe that fits neatly in your underwear or panties, the smart vibrator from Vibease lets your partner deliver custom vibrations from anywhere in the world at the touch of a button. Additionally, this clever little toy also connects via Bluetooth to a library full of erotica and porn directly onto your phone. It will even pulse along with the storyline, for customized, highly realistic and intimate sessions.
From the first name in self-pleasure for him comes this iPad case that holds a Fleshlight sleeve for realistic simulation (and stimulation) during cybering and porn viewing sessions. The screen placement might make usage a little awkward until you get a, er, handle on things, but the idea is still a damn clever one.
Kiiroo Onyx Couple’s Toy
Designed with gay couples in mind, Kiiroo offers the Onyx, a pair of male sleeves that control each other’s contractions with touch pads on the outside of the toys. Differing vibrations and tensions make these fun and customizable ways to play that won’t get boring any time soon.
