Love In The Time of COVID19- Sex Doesn’t Stop

Sex Doesn’t Stop

In these difficult times with health management crises upon us, we need to be be cognizant of virus avoidance strategies until better methods of management are available.

If you are stuck at home, or self-isolation…don’t despair. All this time off from work and other activities allows you to examine and explore your deeper connections to self and body. There are many creative ways to meet your sexual needs, and we’re listing some of the obvious ones below.

When COVID19 hit North America a couple of months ago, we braced ourselves for a sudden decrease in orders, especially for condoms. Fortunately, that didn’t happen, but we DID see a marked change in the TYPES of orders that we processed, mainly with the introduction of masturbation creams and sex toys. That’s proof enough for us that sex doesn’t stop…it just changes.

The discussion below will address the needs of individuals who are practicing isolation, as well as those couples or dedicated partners.

Take Time To Love Yourself

Masturbation is a natural human function, and has a number of benefits: If you are one of those people who are fortunate enough to work from home, this is a great time to include masturbation into your work day, which is probably what most people didn’t envision. It’s your personal workout, which demonstrates that not all work outs are equal.

  • reduce stress.
  • release tension.
  • enhance sleep quality.
  • boost concentration.
  • elevate mood.
  • relieve menstrual cramps.
  • alleviate pain.
  • improve sex.

Some people may feel guilty about masturbating because of cultural, spiritual, or religious beliefs. Masturbation is neither wrong nor immoral, but you may still hear messages that self-pleasure is “dirty” and “shameful.”

If you feel guilty over masturbating, speak with someone you trust about why you feel this way and how you can move past that guilt. Therapists that specialize in sexual health may be a good resource.

Fortunately, many of our customers have availed themselves of a number of lubricants, oils, and pleasure objects (Toys). We’re featuring some of them within this post. You can use the links within our site to examine some of the choices that best meet your needs.

Love In The Time of COVID19-FOR THE GUYS

Despite what you see on Pornhub, where the participants use spit (saliva) as a lubricant, it’s just not reliable to lube up this way; it contains bacteria which can lead to sexually transmitted infections between partners. Is isn’t slippery, tends to dry quickly, and can be irritating.

“I”m Masturbating From Home Today” Said nobody to their boss…ever,probably.

Since you may actually be working from home in the coming months, you can actually say this with a straight face.

Use something that is actually designed to enhance masturbation, such as Bucked Smokey Wrangler Masturbation Cream, with a manly leather scent. It provides a great “Hand Gallop”, and you’ll be be able to hear every little “squelch”.  There is also an “Unscented” version. Read the label: For external Use Only.

For those who prefer to give their prostate a quality work-out, try the LELO “Billy”

LELO Billy is  a gentleman’s prostate massager ideal for exploring a more energetic sensation within.With an ergonomic design perfectly suited to the male form,he offers sustained control through five different stimulation mode.Such versatility achieves breathtaking results. Use Water-Based lubricant only.

If the buzz,thrust and strength of “Billy” isn’t for you, and you’re relative new to anal probes, check out the LELO “Bob”. This is a slimmer, hand-held version, so you won’t need a charger or USB port. You can self-handle “Bob”, or you can enjoy with a partner who will do that for you. Manual insertion will give you a better sense of control.

If you are new to Anal Love, try using Intimate Earth Anal Relaxing Serum as a starter. “Daring” for him. “Adventure” for her.

Isolation With A Partner

Much of the focus on our site, specific to the use of condoms, focuses on safety and protection against STD’s and STI’s. (Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Sexually Transmitted Infections). However, if you are practicing isolation WITH  a trusted partner to prevent the spread of COVID19, you may want to consider the possibility of an unwanted pregnancy later in the year. If your female partner does not have the same access to birth control medications that she would normally have, then it would be a good idea to keep a selection of condoms on hand. Even during this difficult time of isolation, partners are continuing to purchase condoms that best suit their needs.

We won’t provide the specific links to products here, since they would be too numerous to list. We’ll leave it to you to search out what you need via our Search toll at the top right hand of each display page.

Any way you cut it…Everyone Could Use a Little Love right Now.
