Want to spice things up in the bedroom? Look to technology to find new ways to connect with your partner. Not only are sex toys, like remote-control vibrators, fun to play around with, but also they introduce a deeper trust and sense of comfort between you and your partner, where you’re addressing each other’s needs and getting a feel (literally), for what you both like.
“Remote control vibrators for couples are really a first step into the future of sex,” says Holly Richmond, PhD, a somatic psychologist, certified sex therapist (CST), and licensed marriage & family therapist (LMFT). “Welcome to the world of teledildonics, where pleasure is mutual and shareable, no matter how many time zones separate you and your partner.”
Richmond thinks remote-control vibrators are a must for most couples. “This latest evolution of adult pleasure products serves several purposes, from creating novelty in long-term relationships to facilitating connection when couples are apart,” like in long-distance relationships, she says. “Remote-control vibrators take teasing, power-play, and erotic exploration up a notch.”
