Finally, you have the time to do all those sex things you’ve never had time for!
OK so things are starting to ease up with quarantine, but social distancing is still advised, and politicians are saying we may be in and out of isolation for the rest of the year. So we thought it appropriate to give you a guide on how to survive all stages of quarantine whether you are single or partnered up. Let’s gets creative with 15 ways to beat quarantine horniness.
Quarantine doesn’t have to be the wet blanket in your sex life. (Wait, that didn’t come out right.) If you’re anything like me, this quarantine has had you feeling boats of morose and then also that quarantine horniness. So let’s look at the many ways you can spread love without spreading COVID-19.
1. Get to know yourself
Self-pleasuring is a wonderful way for you to develop a strong body-mind connection. Now that most of us are working from home, we have the time to get to know ourselves a little better. We not talking about the quickie hand-job we give ourselves in the morning shower then quickly move on with our day. We are thinking pampering yourself, perhaps having a nice hot bath, and really exploring your entire body and taking the time to touch yourself as a lover would. Just be sure to lock your door if you have kids at home – for those of us who do, we understand their unstoppable need to share their life story the moment we enter the bathroom.
You’ve got the time and YouTube, so why not learn some cool dance moves which you could use one day when bars finally open. Or better still, pick up some impressive blow job tips or learn how to suck her clit. There are so many instructional videos or tips on how to be a better lover.
Quarantine has some of us revamping our gardens as if we were Costa Georgiadis, whilst others are finally seeing what lurks in that drawer (you know the one, we all have one.) Whilst you’re doing your spring cleaning, why not use whatever props you find to make things a little more exciting with you and your partner? If you’re solo or separated, you can still do this and get all Spielberg-like, film it and share the clip with your partner or for your own portfolio. (I have many sexy selfie pics/ videos which are for my eyes only – why should I only do that for men? I want to feel sexy for myself.) So dust off that wig which only comes out for Halloween, get creative with your bondage home kit (socks, ties, belts) and get all Play School creative with your sex accessories.
4. Play games
Sex games don’t have to be bought in a store, although we have some goodies right here… Play a game with your partner (or solo) of “Would this work?” You play by going around the house and searching for things which could be used as potential sex toys. Ladies our mothers have always told us zucchinis are good for us – well they weren’t wrong! Get creative and test your hypothesis. (I won’t even tell you of the household things I’ve had sex with in the past month!)
The “Have you ever…” game is always fun. But if you’ve been together forever then you know all there is to know, right? Well, spice it up a little with “Would you ever…” or make up your Want/Would/Wouldn’t lists. You may just surprise one another and even yourself. I never knew I’d be into pegging until my partner put it on his “Want” list. (The things we do for love!). Here are some games we suggest….
5. Let’s talk about sext baby
If you and your significant other are separated, make the most of what you’ve got. Text each other some sultry selfies and sexy words. Don’t know how? Refer to our guide right here. Want to get a bit more personal? Try a remote sex toy which will bring you and your separated partner closer than ever before. Refer to our guide right here, or you can order some ‘Teledildonic’ toys online right here.
6. Sex parties may be banned, but exhibitionists don’t despair
I understand that exhibitionism may not be your thing. But times are tough, and quarantine requires for us to think outside the box, right? Perhaps getting it on with your partner and inviting a third person to watch (from a 1.5m distance) may be just what the doctor ordered – oh and a COVID-19 vaccine. Get your black book out and call that kinky friend with benefits or go online to an adult chat/dating site and find someone you’re comfortable with – they could watch you virtually. Explore your options.
7. Try on a new role
If you’re always the submissive one in the bedroom, why not try role-reversal and be the dominating sex boss. With your partner’s consent, of course, become the dom that is hiding inside of you (we’ve all got one.) Tie your partner up, spank them, gag them, deny them their orgasm, tell them what to say, how to say it, what to do, what not to do. Exploring the various aspects of our personalities is healthy not only for our own self-esteem but for the longevity of the relationship.
8. Take turns
If you’re coupled up, take turns each week for being responsible for setting the mood – aromatherapy, massage oils, candles, sex toys and some bubbly. If you’re stuck for ideas, check these out. If you’re solo nothing is stopping you from doing this for yourself – take yourself on a romantic date. Or call that ex – they’re good for some things!
9. Have say “Yes” nights
This is a fun-filled game where you and your partner suggest ideas and you both have to say “Yes” for the full 24-hours. Naturally, consent is of utmost importance, but you can really make an adventure out of this (sexual or not.) It builds spontaneity and trust. So do you want to have the “Say Yes” game tonight? (Say “Yes!”)
10. Become an erotica writer
Psychologists always recommend journaling during times of despair. If that’s just not going to happen, try writing some erotica pieces and sharing them on Reddit or any other platform. That fantasy you’ve always had in your head, write it down. If you don’t want to share it with the world, you can do so with your partner. It is sure to bring some zing back into your sex life. (Similarly, reading erotica to one another can be a delightful experience.)
11. We’re all Zooming
I think it’s safe to say that we’re all Zoomed out. I underwent 5 Zoom meetings today – and it’s only lunchtime. My favourite Zoom meeting is the one where I video call my lover, and we screen share one of our x-rated movies which we’ve made together. You can do this even if you and your partner live under the same roof – you could be in one end of the house and they could be in another. (Just be sure to add a password for your meeting, unless you like hackers coming in and watching you… Hmmm… Is it hot in here all of a sudden or is it just me?) Or if you’re a real kinkster, why not give your partner oral sex under the table next time they’re Zooming their colleagues.
12. Give each other some space
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, so create some time apart. If restrictions are severe go for that walk on your own instead of with your significant other. If restrictions have eased up, spend a bit more time staying out. Give each other some breathing space, it is vital during lockdown no matter how much in love with one another you are.
13. Date nights are still in
So maybe you can’t go out to your favourite restaurant or bar just yet, but it doesn’t mean you can’t put on your favourite shirt, that sexy dress, do your make-up and hair and go “out” on a candle-lit dinner date with one another – even if it is just to your dining room. If you’re apart, you can do so virtually with your lover. Good news is you can drink and not worry about driving or catching an Uber home.
14. Have anywhere except the bed sex
Not so easy if you live with children or parents – but see how creative you can get. If you’re solo, try it with self-sex. I have never spent so much time in my garden and on my balcony as much as I have this past month!
15. Corona sex
More than ever before are people getting back together with their exes – not out of a genuine desire for them, but rather the genuine need for it. Don’t feel bad about it – do what you have to do, just be clear with yourself – why you are doing what you are doing. Desperate times call for drastic measures. The one who stays sane during such a wacky time is hardly sane to begin with, no?
