The coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown have changed everything about our daily lives, especially dating! From virtual dates with loved ones in lockdown separate from you to learning how to date at home and with whatever you happen to have in the cupboards, it’s been a learning curve for all of us, and we’re not sure if things will go back to normal any time soon. Knowing that living together 24/7 and experiencing this stress together in the same rooms might not be romantic, we’re talking about how to keep things exciting even without date night.
It’s important to acknowledge that there is a difference between co-existing and spending time together. For example, sitting in the same room and doing separate things is not the same as making an hour to play some games, have a glass of wine and a chat or take it into the bedroom. Some couples are finding themselves behaving more like roommates than lovers in lockdown and the difference starts with quality time and where you focus your attention.
Being Your Best Self
How hot is morning sex when your partner is all dressed and ready to go but you just about have enough time to ravish each other? With no one going anywhere during lockdown, we have to acknowledge that standards are going to slip, and we are going to see our partners as their most slobbish selves rather than their hottest. That’s why it’s important to remember, firstly that when we look good, we feel good, and there’s no better reason than ourselves to feel our best for. Secondly, our partners deserve to double take every now and again and get a piece of eye candy!
It’s the Thought That Counts
We know you can’t do anything too exciting right now, and lots of people feel they’re getting all dressed up with nowhere to go, but it’s always the thought that counts. Dress up, set up a dinner date or a home cinema or a naughty card game and spend some quality time connecting and playing with each other. There’s always more to learn!
Keep Things New
When everything is the same, and you’ve probably had more or less the exact same day, it can be hard to keep things new. Sex toys are a great way to introduce something new to the bedroom, prompt new discussions and explore new sensations together. That’s why we’re still working hard to ensure we deliver quality sex toys for him and her to you. Happy confinement!
