Long-distance relationships can be agonizingly lonely, but being far apart doesn’t have to separate your relationship. Although it takes a special commitment and bond to make it last, you can make the time go by quicker until you’re reunited again. If you’re looking to stay try some of the ideas below to stay connected and turn up the heat!

1. Explore Your Fantasies

Time apart is the perfect time to discuss your innermost desires with no pressure. You can candidly express your fantasies without any fear of judgment or awkward glances. Start by suggesting something you’d like to try, and see what your partner would love in return!

2. Share Something Sexy

Did you find a hot clip that turns you on? Or stumble across a sex tip you can’t wait to try! Instantly send that link to your partner! It will let them know you’re thinking about staying intimate, even if it’s just a hot pic that got your motors going. Don’t forget the NSFW warning!

3. Make a Naughty Coupon Book

Get out your markers and paper, and get ready to be crafty with a twist! Start your coupon book with cute and romantic suggestions like kissing, caressing, and massaging. Then progress to bubble baths, edible treats, and even a spanking. Send the coupon book to your lover, with a promise to try each one.

4. Sexting

You don’t need to be in a relationship to sext, but it definitely gets even more important when it’s the only action you’re getting! Let your partner know what you’d love to do to them, and how incredible their hands and tongue feel on your favorite body parts.

5. Gifts

A little special something lets your honey know you’re thinking about them. Try chocolate, lingerie, or a new toy (check out our favorite toys here)! Even a heartfelt, sensual, loving letter can be a special and intimate surprise. It will definitely be the highlight of your partner’s day or week!

6. Long-Distance Stripping

Whether by phone or webcam, long distance strip games are great to feel like you’re getting naughty right next to each other. It could be virtual poker, truth or dare, or a game where you guess facts about the other person. Whatever you choose, get ready to go bare!

7. Phone Sex

Even better than sexting is an erotic phone call, where you can hear your partner’s moans of pleasure as you chat about your fantasies and desires, and the act of them candidly in your imaginations. Close your eyes, and you’ll be transported to your partner’s bed, where you just may start to think that your own touches are from someone else.

8. Have a Lingerie Photo Shoot

Go to a classy lingerie boutique, or the lingerie department of your local mall, and have a window-shopping spree where you try on all your favorites. Snap a few well-posed photos of each while you’re in the dressing room! Send your favorite pics to your partner, then buy the one that makes your partner swoon the most!

9. Spontaneous Commands

If you’re into controlling each other’s pleasure a bit, try texting little commands to each other throughout the week. It could be something simple like “wear your sexiest panties and show me tonight” or something naughtier like “take 5 minutes to leave work and play in the bathroom”. It’s sure to ignite your spontaneous fire!

10. Sexy Snap Chats

Instead of sending that double-chin selfie, surprise your partner with something more cheeky and naughty. It could be a simple cleavage shot, an upskirt angle, or go all out with some stunning lingerie. Try it while your partner’s at work for extra taboo excitement!

11. Record a Sexy Video

It doesn’t have to be XXX graphic or porn-worthy, but a simple striptease or sensual, suggestive clip can ignite your partner’s imagination and keep them warning more. Try something simple and sweet like licking your lips and winking if you want to keep it light and playful.

12. Write an Erotic Story

Practice your literary skills with an erotica adventure featuring you, your lover, and any of the fantasies you’d love to try! You may not be a wordsmith, but getting those sexy ideas out on paper can be exciting and eye-opening. Share it with your partner for some late night reading and conversation.

13. Skype Sex

If simply hearing your partner’s voice on the phone is not enough to keep you satisfied, graduate to the next level – sex over Skype – where you can see your partner getting off in real-time. There’s nothing better than seeing your partner’s O face, especially when you know your fantasies from them there.

14. Have Long-Distance-Date Night

Set a date where you sit down in front of a webcam, have dinner, chat, and watch a movie together. It’s a simple way to connect, but if you want to turn up the heat – incorporate any of the sexy surprises in this list into your nightcap!

15. Set a Date

Decide which fantasies you want to knock off your bucket list, and set a date to reunite – promising to get through each one. Chat about them beforehand to build the anticipation, then keep a few secrets from each other to surprise on a spontaneous whim!

16. Try a Long-Distance Couple’s Toy

There are many toys out there that are controlled via smartphone, and some are even controlled by the other’s toy! You’ll feel your partner’s motions and get to control their sensation as if there were no distance between you at all.
