You’re cheating on your significant other and you probably don’t even know it. It’s the first thing you touch when you wake up, and the last thing you touch before you go to sleep. It’s what you think about all the time, wherever you are — at work, at home, on vacation, even in bed. You check in up to 80 times a day, just to make sure you stay in the know.
Who are you cheating on your S.O. with? It’s your phone.
It’s official — Americans are hooked on their phones. A whopping 80% of smartphone users check their phones within 15 minutes of waking up, and 61% of them check it within the first 5 minutes. As if that wasn’t bad enough, nearly 1 in 10 Americans have reported using their smartphones during sex, and this statistic jumps to about 20% among young adults. It’s no wonder that Americans, especially millennials, are having less sex — they feel disconnected from their partners. Many experts advise putting away your smartphone in the bedroom to help you reconnect with your partner, but that’s boring and uncreative. Don’t put that smartphone away just yet, because the secret to great sex could be just a few screen taps away.
Dirty Sex Game for Couple
Created by the French company Chouic, Dirty Sex Game for Couple is a game app that contains over 1,000 dirty truths or dares and 4 levels of difficulty (soft, hot, hard, and extreme) that won’t leave you disappointed. So get ready for an unforgettable night because you’re about to discover things about your partner beyond your wildest imagination.
It’s hard enough to make time for your significant other when you have so many other responsibilities. And quality time? You’re sure he/she enjoyed that movie on Netflix the other night. And you made sure to like her latest selfie on Instagram.
Couples today have a much harder time maintaining intimacy. After all, it’s hard to still find your partner sexy when you’ve had to use the restroom after he/she had a few too many tacos. But if you want to rekindle that spark in your relationship, the Pillow iOS app just might help. Written by relationship experts and therapists, Pillow contains “proven intimacy exercises” that encourage open communication, creativity, relaxation, appreciation, and confidence. Use the Pillow app to engage with your partner in a relaxed atmosphere without the pressure of having to have sex.
Even the porn industry has noticed that people are more sedentary and less sexually active, and they might have a solution for you. Pornhub made an app, and it’s not what you think (well, not entirely). This genius app, called BangFit, has been called the revolutionary “fitness method gyms don’t want you to know about.” You’ll need to strap your phone around your waist, sync your smartphone to the website, choose the number of players (1, 2, or 3), and follow along with the “sexercise routine.” You’ll earn points by completing the “sexercises,” with more points awarded for better coordination. Never again will you have to choose between a six-pack and an orgasm.
Tired of the same sex positions? Then consider downloading iKamasutra. With over 100 sex positions tastefully and professionally described and illustrated, you’ll never get bored in bed. As you try new positions, you’ll progress from “Novice” to “Kama Sutra Grand Master.” Want to try a random position? You can shake your phone to let iKamasutra choose your next sex position, and the app will even email the position to your partner. So whether you’re a kama sutra master or a beginner just looking to spice things up, iKamasutra has a position for that.
We-Connect by We-Vibe
Going on a business trip abroad? Don’t let distance get in the way of intimacy. Smartphones now make it possible for you to pleasure your significant other — even when you’re hundreds of miles away. The We-Connect app from We-Vibe allows you to control We-Vibe products from your phone, allowing you to touch, tease, and turn on your lover from anywhere in the world as long as you have an Internet connection. You can touch the screen to adjust the intensity of vibrations, make a custom vibe playlist, and connect with each other with the in-app chat and video functions. You will need to purchase We-Vibe products to use the app, but more sex toys in your collection isn’t really a bad thing.
Even more sex tech! Similar to We-Vibe, Lovense makes teledildonic sex toys that gives you wireless remote control. With Lovense toys, you and your partner won’t have to cycle through the manufacturer’s preset vibration patterns to find what works for your body’s needs. The Lovense Remote app allows you to fully customize vibration levels and patterns. Once saved, you won’t need to bring your smartphone into the bedroom with you every time; your toys will remember the settings.
The Lovense Remote app also allows for in-app messaging and video chat. The two-way interactivity allows for a smooth and natural long-distance sex session.
Have sexy, kinky ideas but too embarrassed to tell your partner? Kindu can help you get around the awkwardness of having to bring it up. Kindu empowers couples to explore their deepest desires and discover exciting activities to do. Similar to Tinder, Kindu suggests ideas and you can swipe left or right based on what sounds good to you and your partner. The app has over 1,000 ideas, but you can also slip a “wildcard” with your personal idea in your partner’s deck.
The Durex Experiment
Condom manufacturer Durex wants you to have more amazing sex. That might sound a little obvious, but this 4-week experiment is an opportunity for you and your partner to discover what great sex means to you, emotionally and physically. It contains mini-tasks that keep things fun and interesting, starting from “Fun with Foreplay” then moving on to “Heightening Sensation,” followed by “Adventurous Play,” and ending with the “Grand Finale.” With tasks like “Blindfolded Sensations,” you might start to love having sex again.
People might be having less sex for a variety of reasons, but an addiction to smartphones doesn’t have to be one of them. With a little bit of creativity and desire to try new things, your smartphone can become the best secret to great sex.
