Did we ever think we'd be writing a blog about how to keep things hot in a relationship during a global pandemic/quarantine? Definitely not.

Times are BIZARRE. However - to stay sane, we have to evolve with new societal rules and lifestyle regulations by getting creative with sex and self-pleasure.
Question: "Can I go to someone's house during social distancing, even if we don't go anywhere, for a date?"
Now is NOT the time to be leaving the house to meet a Tinder date for a booty call! That is basically the equivalent of having unprotected sex on the first date because you both take each other's word for being 'clean'.
There are so many variables involved here and the risk is NOT worth it. You'd be perpetuating the spread of the virus, and this ridiculous quarantine! We are ALL susceptible to transmission via exposure - for example if either person is still going to work, having packages delivered and not wiping them down properly, comes into contact with roommates who have potentially been exposed, made a grocery store run and picked up the virus....just SAY NO.
We all need sex, there's no question. And if you're not having sex in your house, then it's important to explore self-pleasure.
Also- sex/masturbation boosts your immune system by generating antibodies against viruses and bacteria. So you know, do your part to fight the cause and have an orgasm, FFS!
QUARANTINE TO-DO LIST:
Since -everyone- has got a sh*t ton of extra time on their hands right now, consider stamina control your new extracurricular activity! For those who experience premature or just quick ejaculation, spend some time with marathon masturbation to whip your sex game into shape (for when this is all OVER).
We put together the Self-Isolation Masturbation Kit for those who are stuck in quarantine solo, to encourage you to add something new to the mix, aside from your trusty hand.
The kit includes a compact masturbation stroker, ejaculation delay spray, and two mini bottles of water-based lube.
Each of the items can be used together or combined by yourself or virtually - but we understand if using a pleasure sleeve in front of a partner, on video, might be a bit intimidating. (Unless they're into it - which would be awesome.)
The items included:
LAST delay formula, which just takes a couple of sprays to help sustain an erection by desensitizing the penis. (Don't worry, you'll still feel the feelings.) If you've ever felt embarrassed or guilty for coming too quickly with a partner, it's okay to use an enhancement product to help you achieve the results you want. Spritz two times and wait a few minutes to take effect when you start.
STROKE has a double-ended, tapered texture that delivers a dual-sensory experience. One end is way tighter than the other, so you can customize your experience. Or switch it up - just don't blow it! We aimed to replicate the feeling of vaginal penetration - but it's great for 'just the tip' too. (Partnered? Use it at the base of the penis as a BJ enhancer.)
And of course, lube should always be in your repertoire! SMOOTH water-based mimics the feeling of natural lubrication (so maybe use it alone if adding a pleasure stroker seems like it'd be too overstimulating).
How to practice stamina control: edge yourself to the brink of climax, no matter what you're using, but STOP!! ALTO!! before going over the edge. Repeating this several times during one session is the way to build your stamina. Your homework: practice 3 times a week to see a difference in about a month.
"New studies attempt to answer questions on how the virus is shed and the range of clinical outcomes, with two studies indicating that shedding—and therefore transmission—likely occurs via multiple routes.
The results of the study are the first to show COVID-19 could be transmitted via respiratory, fecal-oral, or body fluid routes, the authors say. They also warn that a patient with negative oral swabs after several days of illness may still be capable of transmitting the virus."
We can't stop you from leaving the house....but if you're going to make that choice...please stay as safe as possible.
Right now, we are offering a free 4-pack of LockdownLatex condoms (free shipping too), to customers 18+ (while supplies last).
(And if you're in a relationship, looking for beginner's sex toys to spice up the bedroom but don't know where to start - we are also offering a Partner Pleasure Quarantine Kit for y'all.)
