Welcome to our new 'Play at Home' mini series, where we aim to keep you entertained, coping and sexually thriving during these interesting and unique times.
Want to reingite the spark in your relationship that you've possibly been taking for granted, but without necessarily just jumping straight into bed?
This week, Sammi and Nick catch-up (remotely, of course) and share their thoughts on the different ways to boost intimacy and show appreciation of your partner that don't just involve sex. Time to start thinking outside of the box!
We also cover our usual segments "You can never know enough about sex" and "Sexual happiness starts with you", where we share real tips and tales from our lovely Lovehoney customers.
Prior to test driving ElectraStim's wares, I knew next to nothing about the Electro Sex toys available on the Lovehoney website. I knew they were sex toys, and I knew electricity was somehow involved. That was it! Now, after experiencing both products, my interest in Electro Sex toys has been well and truly sparked!
Just mentioning 'masturbation' brings to mind solo pleasure like no other, but did you know that mutual masturbation is a thing too? It's pretty great! It lets you and your lover share intimacies in new ways and if you've never tried it before, you're totally missing out.
If you've got a partner and a willing set of palms then do we have the list for you. All these positions are great for couples with any gender configuration – if we haven't mentioned your bits, we promise the feel will still be good with whatever you've got.
So invite your lover to join you, and take a look at our top 6 mutual masturbation positions.
I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling the effects of this global pandemic in all parts of life.
My long-term partner and I live together, which is definitely something that I'm grateful for while we're in lockdown. We're both homebodies and we rarely go out in the evening – I thought we'd be fine. But, this period has made me realise that our relationship relies more heavily on activities and adventures than either of us ever thought.
I've come up with some different date ideas that my partner and I can do while in lockdown so that we feel a little bit more like ourselves again. Lots of these can be done with family and other housemates too, so whoever you're locked in with – spice it up!
