Ah, 2020. Yet we thought you were so sweet and so promising with your new decade! It must be said, you surprised us all, even under the duvet! While 27% of single people admit to having lacked sex during confinement* (Meetic study), the others are wondering how to reinvent their sex life as a couple or solo from home! YESforLOV gives you some naughty tips as you wish!


Containment: a “New Look” sexuality!

Our sex life has been hit hard and completely turned upside down in these times of a pandemic. The usual and demanded contacts, with body and cries, for the most demanding of us have become less frequent, the embraces have become rare, the caresses have wandered off. It's the catastrophy under the duvet in full containment repeatedly. Theoretically, this period should have been, for those confined together, synonymous with a sexual panacea. Yes, theoretically.

What frustrations for all those who love strongly and without detours. Cramped apartments, family roommates, gloomy atmosphere, persistent fatigue, reality that is a little too brutal...there are many reasons for abandoning our somersaults under the duvet. For separated lovers or abandoned singles, the ordeal is all the more severe!

YESforLOV has concocted 5 “sex, love and self-care” tips for you for a fulfilling sex life even when confined!

Our YESforLOV tips for a sex life reinvented in confinement.

Reinventing our sexuality, yes, but how? Intelligent foreplay with their novelties, listening to each other, sexting galore, naughty videos or sensual little gifts... what are the good practices to nourish our confined sexuality?

1. Bring the dialogue back into your duet (or trio) and spice up your sex routine.

The daily life sometimes invades us so vastly that we even lose the basic communication reflexes, an essential cement of the couple. The first thing to put in place is then to reinstall a dialogue with your partner. Whether you want a good massage, a romantic aperitif, a whirlpool bath or even a little 5 to 7 between two “Zoom” calls, don't be afraid to express your desires. Don't wait for the other to imagine what's going on in your head and be forceful of proposals (like in telework what!).

Also, in the same way that you take good habits to cook homemade, resume sport and have better quality sleep, think about reinventing your sexual routine. And yes, the sexual act is not just about penetration: seduce yourself, reintegrate the game into your seduction (psssst, test our naughty YESforLOV dice for frenzied love games), value foreplay in one and in the else, try a new position or a new piece…!

2. Focus on mindful masturbation.

As Jon Kabat-Zinn, physician and founder of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine at the Medical University of Massachusetts, explains, mindfulness results “from paying attention, intentionally in the present moment, without judgment, to experience that unfolds moment by moment. So when we relate mindfulness to masturbation, the idea is, again, to know how to take the time, one thing after another, to realize your body, your breathing, your movements, your touch while focusing his full attention to you and the moment you are living. Create an atmosphere in which you feel calm, light a candle, breathe deeply and then touch yourself gently. Seduce yourself, take off your clothes like a lover would.


3. Bet on erotic audios to diversify your sources of pleasure.

Let your senses guide you for a sex life in motion. For once, put aside your sight and titillate your hearing with erotic, intensely sensual lullabies. As a couple or alone, let yourself be seduced by a torrid read that will make you shiver. The eroticism of words is the number 1 aphrodisiac to raise the temperature. Take a look at Le Verrou , an erotic podcast platform that selects the best of classic literature to read fiery passages to you. Give porn another chance by preferring audio porn from VOXXX . Sensational.

4. Collect sex toys to spice up your sex life.

They vibrate and send glitter to our lower abdomens, erotic toys are “must-haves” to spice up and reinvent your sex life. Funny and colorful, the naughty vibrator accessories allow you to discover new sensations, solo or as a couple!

At YESforLOV, we love the LOV FINGER, clitoral stimulator in the shape of a vibrating ring, ideal for solo masturbation sessions and the LOV TOUCH , our massage roller for quivering caresses!

5. Think about your well-being and lower your stress level.

This pandemic will have had many effects on our psyche, starting with a very high level of stress! It's normal then that sex is the last thing on your list of concerns. However, tips can help you take a few minutes for yourself, relieve your anxieties, reconnect with yourself and your partner. The first step will be to disconnect from information that is looping. Take a break! The information will get to you one way or another, trust us. Give yourself five minutes to breathe while testing cardiac coherence or to meditate in order to realign yourself with your thoughts. Suggest that your partner take a shower together, watch a movie together, or give you a massage. Objective: a bit of #selfcare to tame yourself again.

Pssst. Our Maddening Scented Massage Candle will do wonders to reconnect you to each other, we promise.

A reinvented and secure sex life during
the Covid-19 pandemic.

Note, however, that spicing up your sex life does not mean taking ill-considered risks by defying taboos to join your partner! Let's all take our troubles patiently, let's use ingenuity to seduce us from a distance: fiery letters, erotic podcasts to listen to together and from a distance, sexting and other digital flirtations, sensual video, toys of all kinds, suggestive photos... a panoply resources to have fun without risk! Also, you can decide to simply recreate an intimacy for two (or more) by reconnecting to the other remotely: watching a movie together on the phone, experiencing your first romantic “date” in front of the camera, cooking together... all the things you could do with your partner to feel connected.

And you, what are your tips for a better sex life during confinement?
