    Every relationship starts with a spark, excitement and that pretty “honeymoon phase”. But after a certain point of time, especially when away from each other, you try to look into ideas for long-distance couples. The distance becomes unbearable, and all you could think of what life would be if you both lived together or at least nearby. The honeymoon phase is where you see zero flaws, and everything feels smooth and flows effortlessly. You feel the world is perfect, and nothing can separate the two of you. However, time can test the best of relationships, and it certainly gets difficult when it’s long-distance. Long-distance can be against choice, especially with the pandemic and lockdown restrictions. You need to cope with the environment, and you need ideas to keep the spark alive. 

    Finding things to do in the daily workload cycle may be tough, and at first, you might feel awkward trying something fun and wild. But, don’t worry because we have got you covered!

    We will be giving 9 ideas for long-distance couples that will keep the romance alive:

    1. Have a Virtual date night: Giving romantic ideas for long-distance couples at first. Go and try with a virtual date via any video call portal you feel has great connectivity. It can be a casual dinner date too. You can decide a bit early and decorate your rooms in the same way. Try giving it a candle-light dinner vibe so that it looks romantic. You can dress up in formals to match the scenario. Trust us, this will be special and cute. You can set soothing music at a low volume, adjust the vibe in the room with light red or yellow lights to match the mood and add some champagne/wine or your favourite drink. Given the distance situation that you guys have currently, that’ll be a romantic and cute idea to try out.
    2. Movie Date time: This is one of the best ideas for long-distance couples with minimal efforts. If you both have time available in the evening or anytime in the day, try Netflix watch parties or any similar video call application. With this, you can probably keep the half screen of your lover and the other half of the movie you wish to watch. It might not have the same vibe as cuddling on the sofa and sharing a popcorn bag together, but it’s better than nothing. Watch your favourite romantic, chick-flick, horror(fun if one is super scared of scary films) and much more. It’s a simple and cute idea for long-distance couples to implement in their lives. Watch movies similar to LDR like The Notebook, Time Traveler’s Wife, What if and Sleepless in Seattle.

Wondering how you can implement any long-distance sex ideas? We got you! You might be covering the emotional and physical parts of your relationship, but that does not mean you sacrifice the physical pleasure. Set a specific time when both of you are free from work, household chores and most importantly, have complete privacy. Dim the lights a bit, light up candles and if you can get in comfy clothes or hot lingerie for her to tease around a bit. You can either do it over the phone or with the video call on. Start talking wild and dirty with your partner and arouse each other with your words. A phone long-distance sex ideas are to add sex toys to the mix.

    4. Sexting: If time doesn’t allow you to video call each other, then you can spice up the relationship by sexting. Try out spontaneously to make it more adventurous. Does your girl have a meeting at 7? Send a sexy nude playing with yourself with a vibrator and wish her luck! Your man is probably out buying groceries? Send a semi-nude teasing her on what she is missing out on. Sexting can be creative- as long as you want it to be (that’s what she said!). Be creative at it while you do it. Send pictures, short videos, talk wild and describe the things you’d do when you both are in a room together. You can even use sex toys while sexting to increase pleasure levels.

Wild couples often love playing stripping games where if the other person loses a round at any game, they strip off a piece of clothing. Challenge the stereotype that girls can’t play video games and teach your girlfriend an online video game on your favourite console. Try all the long-distance relationship games with your partner and have fun
    6. Make an LDR Playlist: Long-distance date ideas list won’t be complete without some music, right? Dedicate a song that makes you think of your lover or maybe dedicate an entire playlist for them. Make them feel special, share lyrics with them that make you miss them. Give it that 90’s mixtape love vibes with a bit of modernity. Make a playlist that you think of your lover, that makes you miss them, that you want to listen to while making love, that makes you happy, that you both can listen to while driving and basically everything that connects the two of you. You can even make one together describing your relationship and listening to it together. These little things matter in a relationship, and you need to make the most of them.
    7. Explore the city: This is one of the most adventurous ideas for long-distance couples to implement. You can go somewhere you love going or a completely new place that you like to call a “happy place”. Stay on video call during this adventure. You can visit places that you loved to visit or like a potential future date place too. Share pictures and videos while at it and make your partner do the same at their place. (Please follow this tip if it is safe to step outside considering the pandemic).
    8. Write a love letter: Not exactly one of the long-distance date ideas but certainly a cute move you can create for your lover. Actions do speak louder than words, but that does not mean words don’t matter. Send your lover a postcard with your hand written love letter saying how much you miss them. Express your feelings because long-distance relationships can be really tough. You might be craving a hug or a cuddle from your partner, but the circumstances won’t allow that. So, aim at expressing whatever you feel with an old-school love letter. It’ll make your partner really happy and even more if it is handwritten. If you can send it with a postcard, then scan it on your desktop and e-mail the same. It’s the efforts that will matter the most. Don’t let the love between the two of you fade away.
    9. Create a Bucket List: Turn these ideas for long-distance couples into a future date idea! Make a list of things you plan on doing whenever you finally decide to meet and hang out together. It might be a tough one because you will end up wanting to do all of these things at that moment rather than waiting for the moment to come later on. But still, it can be a fun and romantic task that you guys can do together. Add in stuff like visiting your favourite pizza place, watching a movie in the cinema hall, playing games at a gaming parlour, walking in the garden or visiting a nightclub and dancing.


    Finding ideas for long-distance couples can be really difficult. You can solve this problem with these long-distance date ideas that are really fun and eccentric if implemented correctly. Don’t let your love fizzle out because of distance. Spread and share love despite being miles away.

      They say a lube can really uplift a sexual experience by encouraging a sense of smoothness, confidence and consistency in maintaining a comfortable rhythm. Couples can use and should treat lubes as an add-on, especially when they intend to experiment with positions and toys. In fact, using them with sex toys - whether you’re alone or with your partner, is an essential step in making your sexual journey as smooth as possible - pun intended.

      The market has an array of lubricants available and while they all serve the same purpose, their ingredients can and do differ. The most popular bases for lubes are:

      • Water
      • Silicone
      • Oil
      • Natural


      One of the most popular choices from the world of lubes is water-based lubricants. They have no taste, feel very much like natural lubrication and are less likely to irritate or inflame sensitive skin. They are safe to use during oral sex as well and are generally absorbed quickly by the skin unlike others. Added benefits include being completely compatible with condoms - as compared to most oil-based sex lubes or petroleum jellies that can corrode latex. They are also extremely compatible with sex toys and we highly recommend using it during your play time.


      These lubricants do not contain water. While it may work for many, and not so much for others, your sexual journey is not set in stone and exploring your choices is a healthy way to understand what works best for your skin and body. These feel a little different on the skin as they don’t get absorbed quickly like water or oil as silicone-based lubes are hypoallergenic in nature. They can be safely used with condoms and don't require as many reapplications. The only major drawback is that it cannot be used with sex toys as they tend to solidify on them and may leave a sticky residue. 


      If you want to avoid reapplying lube, we recommend you use an oil-based lubricant. But bear in mind that these lubes are not compatible with latex condoms. There’s a risk of the condom ripping or tearing during the act - making it unsafe and compromising on the protection factor (against STDs and unplanned pregnancies). Some other concerns that rise with using oil-based lubricants include staining of sheets and clothes. But they can be doubled up and used for massaging your partner, so go ahead and give it a try some time. We recommend you don’t use oil-based lubes with sex toys as it can hamper the quality of the silicone and damage it.


      There’s always going to be a time when going natural is a ‘natural’ choice for many. Especially for those who are concerned about certain ingredients that go into the manufactured products. In such cases, using coconut oil is a popular choice. But it comes with added risks like condom breakage and staining of sheets. Also, the coconut oil used for daily activities should be separate from the one being used for your sexual activities. Avoid using it with sex toys as they aren’t compatible.

      Now that we’ve given a detailed lowdown on the various types of lubes available, it’s up to you to make the right choice for you and/or your partner. Remember to stick to water-based lubricants if you intend to use them with sex toys. Find our entire collection of lubes here:

        Ever wondered if there’s something out there for you to experience firmer erections, better stamina delayed ejaculations without actually consuming any form of drug or medication? Well, say hello to Vibrating Rings aka Penis Rings aka Cock Rings.

        Multiple names, one fabulous goal. Penis rings - whether they vibrate or not - can pump up your sexual performance to a whole new level. Maybe it’s time you explored this side and became your own very own “lord of the rings”...Excuse the pun, but you know what we mean, right?

        Key Features: Most Vibrating Rings are designed for extra pleasure. They are discreet, waterproof, and noise-free. They are made with quality silicone and have zero allergens - making it safe on skin.

        How to use? All vibrating rings are designed keeping in mind the same end goal - ie. to deliver the ultimate form of pleasure. But here are a few essential steps to keep in mind while using them.

        Step 1: Before putting on a cock ring, apply and spread a decent amount of lube around the inner part. This will help it slide down a penis more easily. Note: Preferably use a water-based lube to avoid causing damage to the ring. Step 2: Make sure your well-lubricated penis is semi-erect while placing the ring over the head and sliding it down the shaft and onto the base. You can place it over a fully erect penis as well, depending on your girth or the size of the ring.  Step 3: Start off with a position you and your partner are comfortable with - like missionary or even doggy in some cases and then you can move on to experimenting once you’ve got the hang of it. Important note: Avoid keeping a cock ring on for more than 20-30 minutes. Although the blood flow restriction is usually safe in short bursts, it can eventually turn painful after prolonged use.

        Why use it? The joy of mutual stimulation can be ultra exciting so why not give your sex life a sensual upgrade? Vibrating Rings are available in various shapes and forms but are all designed to be adjustable to make sure it fits no matter what size. The beauty of using these with your partner is that it works towards achieving mutually explosive and almost synchronised orgasms. Yes, it’s possible.

        Some of these rings are ergonomically designed with a small appendage or extension, which is almost like a small bullet vibrator which which is meant for clitoral stimulation, which is key to achieving wholesome female orgasms.

        Some rings are designed to enhance a man’s performance by curbing the blood flow to the penis - leading to harder and long-lasting erections. A smarter choice to make over popping pills, what say?

        Some vibrating rings come with bluetooth technology. These rings can be controlled with  a few good buttons and  take your orgasms to the next level. Explore and play with a range of different vibration modes to level-up your sexual experience.

        Couples in long distance relationships can invest in a vibrating ring that can be controlled no matter where you are in the world, with the help of an app connected to your ring - making sure your intimacy game stays strong and exciting despite the distance!

        If you’d like to check out the various kinds of Vibrating Rings that are available for your pleasure, here’s the range available on our website.
