Most people have been in some kind of isolation or social distancing set up for several weeks now and the struggles and juggles are real. We’re not here to talk about how to entertain the kids, make an office in your spare room or tell you that now is a good time to learn a new skill – all valid and helpful advice, but that’s not what you’re here for! Setting aside the things we’re all dealing with; we want to talk about fun stuff.
We know what’s going on in the world is tough, but if you are in the mood and you’re socially distancing with a partner – with neither of you showing any symptoms – then lucky you! What a great opportunity to make the most of any extra time you have together to play, experiment, enjoy each other, connect and relieve anxiety. Social distancing doesn’t have to mean disconnecting from your sexual playground either.
Connecting in quarantine via video calling
For the foreseeable future, contact with new sexual partners or play mates you don’t live with is a no-no, so it’s time to get creative and feed your fantasies in other ways. The world we’re socially distancing in is full of ways to keep in touch – and whilst we’re not sure the creators of video calling services had this in mind, why not use the technology at your disposal to play and share your quarantine sex fun?
Whether you choose Zoom, WhatsApp, Skype, Facetime or another app, once you get over the initial ‘do I really look and sounds like that’ moment, it really is an amazing way to be as close as possible and share real time fun.

Connection not location
One of the great possibilities during quarantine is that your sexual fun isn’t limited by location. You may be holed up in a sleep countryside village in England – but your partner can be anywhere in the world. We’re talking global sex here, just don’t forget about the time difference !
While physical contact definitely isn’t something we’d want to give up forever, people are making it work during quarantine, so you can too. Dating apps are reporting big increases in users, more conversations happening, longer conversations, more in-app calls – so instead of learning the guitar, spend your time getting to know yourself (yes, masturbation is completely acceptable as a new quarantine hobby!) and getting to know new friends to connect with, play with and have fun with.
And, as always , play safe.
