The Ultimate Guide to Long-Distance Lovin’: Best Sex Toys for Couples Apart
They say if you’re a survivor of a long-distance relationship, then they love you. It’s a statement people say because they’ve carried the stereotype of being apart as the cause of breaking up.
It has a point because human nature appreciates, if not, thrives from touch. The lack of it can lead to a lack of affection and consequently lead to resentment (and that’s putting it simply, there are a lot of factors that contribute to the downfall of a relationship).
That’s why these days, we are fortunate to experience technology that bridges the gap. Sex toys have advanced to a stage where they can now be controlled remotely, and even through the internet. Making it easier for couples to “keep in touch” so to say.
If you’re looking to keep things spicy, sexy, and very interesting while miles apart, this article’s for you. So, buckle up (or un-buckle, if you prefer) and let’s embark on this fun and informative journey!
What are Long-Distance Sex Toys?
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, Berkeley Well Being defines long-distance relationships as “relationships in which the partners spend multiple nights a week apart or go without seeing each other for long stretches of time.”
In layman’s terms, it’s being in love while being apart.
It poses a certain set of challenges such as less time spent being physically together and more space for anxiety to tempt one’s mind to think negatively of the other, to name a few. While the first issue can be resolved with our star for today’s talk, the second issue requires the couple to communicate their needs, wants and fears even better or if appropriate, seek professional help to learn healthy coping mechanisms when such a bout of anxiety does occur.
Circling back, the lack of physical touch can be met with the use of sex toys, but what are they? Simply put, they are interactive pleasure devices designed with the ability to be used remotely. They are also called teledildonics just in case you stumble on its fancier term during your search.
These innovative devices are equipped with technology that allows them to be controlled via the internet, typically through apps on smartphones. This means that partners, even if they’re miles or continents apart, can still have an intimate experience that is close to physical touch.
These toys often feature real-time feedback, allowing one partner to control the device while the other experiences its effects. Some models also incorporate chat features, further bridging the gap between long-distance couples.
As technology continues to advance, the integration of haptic feedback and other sensory enhancements is expected to create even more immersive experiences for couples. These devices are not just revolutionary for maintaining intimacy in long-distance relationships, but also for fostering new kinds of connections and explorations of pleasure.

Tips for Safe and Enjoyable Long-Distance Play:
Intimacy across miles is no small feat, but with today’s technology, long-distance couples can remain connected in new and exciting ways. Pleasure, after all, isn’t just about the sensation—it’s deeply intertwined with trust, security, and knowing that your partner respects your boundaries. As lovebirds explore the realm of long-distance play, here’s an expanded set of guidelines for a safe and enjoyable experience:
- Importance: This point cannot be stressed enough. Trust is built on a foundation of open dialogue and understanding.
- Tips: Regularly discuss your comfort zones, hard limits, and fantasies. This not only helps avoid misunderstandings but can also enhance the experience by revealing shared desires.
- Check-ins: During any activity, check in with your partner. A simple “Are you okay with this?” can make a world of difference.
- Material Matters: Only purchase toys made of body-safe materials like silicone, glass, stainless steel, etc. Cheap, porous materials can harbor bacteria, leading to infections.
- Reputation Counts: Opt for reputable brands and sellers. Read reviews and ensure that what you’re buying is genuine and not a counterfeit.
- Instruction Manual: Before using any toy, familiarize yourself with its functions and safety features.
- Why It Matters: Keeping your toys clean prevents bacterial buildup!
- Tips: Use a toy-specific cleaner or mild unscented soap and warm water. Ensure toys are properly dried before storing to prevent mold growth.
- Storage: Store toys in a clean, dry place. Some toys come with storage pouches which can help keep them free from dust and contaminants.
Keep Things Private:
- Internet Safety: While the internet offers countless platforms for connection, it’s crucial to remember that not everyone has good intentions.
- Encrypted Platforms: Use apps that provide end-to-end encryption for calls, messages, and video chats. This ensures that only the recipient can access the message.
- Be Wary of Screen Recording and Screenshots: Even with someone you trust, it’s good to remember that videos or images can be captured. Discuss boundaries around this with your partner.
- Strong Passwords: Always use strong, unique passwords for online platforms to prevent unauthorized access.
There you have it! These are the best long-distance sex toys to bridge the challenging gap of long-distance relationships. Always keep in mind that these toys can resolve the lack of physical intimacy and that we should actively check in with our partners and their emotional needs.
