Absence makes the heart grow fonder for long distance couples ― and when you’re feeling lusty, synced-up sex toys make that absence a wholelot more bearable.
Weekly Skype calls and sexting are a must when you live far away from your partner, and luckily, today’s sex toy manufacturers have come out with products that make those video rendezvous more interactive than ever.
Below, sex therapists and educators offer their best sex toy recs for couples who can’t physically be together, from vibrators your lover can control via app to male masturbators with multiple vibration styles.
We-Vibe Sync Adjustable Couples Vibrator
Lovense Max 2 Male Masturbator
“Max 2 by Lovense is a sleeve that offers multiple sensations through its seven vibration styles and three contraction levels while connecting to a partner via the Bluetooth app. I always ask clients to list their top erotic triggers, and for those men that list touch as the top of their list, I suggest this toy if they’re separated from a longtime partner or trying to date during COVID. For men who miss the tactile feel of penetration, this is the closest thing to pleasurable penetration using safer sex distancing guidelines.” —Sari Cooper, sex therapist and director of The Center for Love and Sex NYCGet the Lovense Max 2 male masturbator.

“This is Adam & Eve’s newest male toy. It’s a vibrating delight designed for ergonomic handling. It’s great for long-distance couples because a male doesn’t need to be fully hard to start using this toy. He can engage in phone or Skype sex and let the erection emerge into the toy for ultimate pleasure.” — Skyler
“We-Vibe makes a whole bunch of products that use their We-Connect app to let long-distance lovers get intimate, but one of my faves is the Moxie. It’s a super-strong panty vibrator that one partner can wear while the other controls it from anywhere in the world. This adds sexy spontaneity to things because there’s nothing like receiving a little surprise ‘love note’ in your pants when you least expect it!” — Emily Morse, doctor of human sexuality and host of the SiriusXM Radio show and podcast “Sex with Emily”
“The Esca 2 is a remote and app-controlled insertable bullet vibrator with a little tail for easy removal. When using it in-person, the app works like a remote control, but from afar, it allows you to control the action from anywhere. This toy is perfect for phone sex, video chat sex or a socially-distant date outside.” — Ligon
