It’s 2022, and two years into the pandemic many countries are still unable to travel, making it especially challenging for those couples who chose to do long-distance. Anyone who has ever been in a long-distance relationship will tell you it can be challenging to keep the spark alive—navigating time zones, work schedules and social lives can really put a damper on the mood. Fortunately, technology has your back when it comes to getting it on remotely with more and more app-controlled sex toys appearing in the market. In this article, we’re rounding up the best long-distance sex toys to keep you and your boo connected from afar.
How do long-distance sex toys work?
Gone are the days when you had to be (at most) a few feet away from each other for your remote-controlled vibrator to work. These days, there are long-distance sex toys to suit every relationship, most can be controlled via an app on your smartphone, meaning that they will work across town, country, or even the world.
While each long-distance sex toy varies, most connect via Bluetooth to the app which controls them. Your partner can then access (or connect to) your app remotely via the internet, and control your toy from afar.
Let’s check out the lineup of the best sex toys for long-distance couples in 2022…
