How to have legitimately great Skype sex when you’re stuck at home

We’re all spending more time at home these days, and with literally every basic task you can think of able to be done over the internet. You can shop online, work from home, speak to friends and yes, you guessed it, even have sex. If you’re living apart from your partner, or in a long-distance relationship, skype webcamsex and video chat sex can be a great way to maintain your connection, even across thousands of miles.

The idea of trying to be sexy IRL can so scary for some people (*raises hand*) that the very thought of it sends them into panic mode. Factor in a phone screen or laptop, and that panic is heightened by approx 100 times. Like it or not though, it’s a Skype sex world we’re living in now. I’ve even been told that some couples actually enjoy it.
