A friend recently linked me to an article on Gizmodo, which was a chat piece asking people if they would use a wifi-enabled sex toy with your long distance lover. This sent me off to Google of course to see what I could find, as I have seen many wireless toys that you can use with a remote but they have only a certain range that you can use them from. I have also seen apps for the phone that turn your phone into a vibrator, but I don’t know about anyone else but I like my phone and if I wanted a vibrator I would just by one and not turn my very expensive smart phone into a vibrator. As I am pretty sure that goes against the protection plan I pay for…
Now I could only find one toy that was wi-fi enabled and you could actually also use via Skype. Which when I thought about it, a lot of people do long distance Skype dating these days. It’s a way to feel like you are in the same room with a loved one and to be able to see them as supposed to just hearing their voice if you have a cam enabled. So I thought that this seemed like a good thing for people who actually wanted it. I can see that there is a level of intimacy there in knowing that your partner would be controlling the vibrations and how it felt, so I am sure that there are people who would certainly enjoy it.
Now me personally, I guess I am just old-fashioned. If I was in a long distance relationship, which I have been in the past, I am happy to use my hand or whatever toy is available to me. It’s not hard for the other person on the other end of things to say ‘turn it up’ or ‘faster’ to control what I am doing. Sure there wouldn’t be any surprise moments of them just randomly turning it on when ever they pleased, but on that same hand if it was a situation where they knew I was wearing perhaps a remote-controlled bullet of my own and then texted me to turn it on where I was? That for me would be even more of a turn on, that secret that only I and another person miles away knew. I am sure someone might be thinking, well you could just say that you did turn it on and never do it. But there in lies some of that trust that long distance relationships have to have to really work in my opinion. Sure you could lie and say you did it, but I know if I did…there would be that guilt that set in because I knew I was lying to someone I cared for. Which would just turn something that was supposed to be fun, into something that is no doubt a bit of a problem in the relationship.
What about you? WiFi or doing things the old-fashioned way? How do you feel about it, I would love hearing more thoughts on this.
