Absence makes the heart grow fonder for
long distance couples ― and when you’re feeling lusty, synced-up sex toys make that absence a whole lot more bearable.
Weekly Skype calls and
sexting are a must when you live far away from your partner, and luckily, today’s sex toy manufacturers have come out with products that make those video rendezvous more interactive than ever.
Below, sex therapists and educators offer their best sex toy recs for couples who can’t physically be together, from vibrators your lover can control via app to male masturbators with multiple vibration styles.
Take a look below.
