Ah, brave new world that provides such interesting options in the area of sex toys! With more and more people – individuals and couples both – incorporating sex toys into their sex lives, it’s not surprising that companies are busy trying to come up with new products. Since regular use of the penis contributes to its overall penis health, many men are getting an added benefit from this splurge of interest. And with new options for remote controlled toys, couples who want to use these items for long distance love sessions may discover a whole new world opening up.
Long distance sex
Couples’ interest in long distance sex goes back many years. Steamy love letters served as a way of keeping a relationship hot back in the days before telephone and Skype. With greater openness among couples about the desire for self-pleasure, more and more partners now find themselves engaging in long distance trysts from separate cities – if not continents.
Until recently, however, a person using, say, a vibrator while engaging in a steamy telephone conversation with their lover was controlling all the vibratory action themselves. Now, with wifi and Bluetooth and so many other advances, couples can find a way of lending a helping hand from far away.
So how does it work?
A guy can’t simply pull out an old vibrator and tell his partner on the phone to start it up for him. Only sex toys that have been designed for long distance remote control capability will work.
In general, most of these long distance sex toys are created for use with a smartphone – and usually by downloading a particular app designed for that object. So there has to be a little planning involved. Once the app is installed, a person can then experiment with it to see just what functions it has. For example, how does it control the rate of a vibrator? Are there just several levels (say, 1-5)? Or does it have a sliding scale without numbers, where a person can provide greater “shadings” of vibratory activity? In some cases, the control may take up the entire screen, with different hand motions and speed of touch having an effect on the “output” end of the machine.
In some cases, a toy may be controlled by something other than a person. For example, some toys vibrate to the beat of a song (or songs, as the case may be).
The objects can also be synchronized. For example, a man may wear a vibrating penis ring while his partner utilizes a vibrating anal plug – but both are set to be controlled by the same user. Thus, one of the pair determines the rate of vibration so both partners are experiencing the same sensations at the same time.
And for the statistically-minded, some remote controlled sex toys also include ways of tracking usage. If one particular session brought about an especially strong climax, the user may be able to look up what settings were used and try to duplicate that experience.
The advantage of the remote-controlled sex toys for couples, of course, is that they can use their own control of the toys to interact more physically when they can’t physically be together. One partner can instruct the other to go faster or slower, just as they do when together in bed.
Sex toys that promote long distance experiences for a couple are exciting, but a man needs to make sure his penis is healthy enough to reap their benefit. Regular use of a superior penis health crème helps maintain that health. A crème with moisturizing ingredients like vitamin E (a natural hydrator) and Shea butter (a high end emollient) can help to soothe a penis sore from all that activity. And one with vitamin C can help aid in collagen production, necessary for proper penile firmness and health.
