how to have skype sex

When I was growing up, all of the teens were into cyber sex. It was just something everybody did.

Growing up in the age of virtual sex made stuff like Skype sex seem like the next logical step now that we're all grown.

Figuring out how to have Skype sex can still feel awkward, even if you're used to getting your sexy on with the help of a machine proxy.

It can feel awkward to be face to face but not flesh to flesh with your partner. 

But you can figure out how to have Skype sex, and all you need to do is keep in mind that there are some things you NEED to do and other things you NEED to avoid at all costs. 

So here are some seriously helpful do's and don'ts of how to have Skype sex.

DO NOT do these things if you're having Skype sex:

1. DO NOT have Skype sex in the tub or shower.

Much like having sex in the shower or the bathtub, this is a case of reality being infinitely less sexy than the fantasy.

Skype is either on your computer or your phone.

Both are things you want to keep away from water.

So save the water play for a real-life encounter.

2. DO NOT keep your lube near your computer. 


I always, always, always suggest keeping lube (and lots of it) on standby for sexy times both solo and paired.

That said, make sure your lube is far away from your computer.

Because the only thing worse than damaging your computer during Skype sex is damaging your computer by pouring lube on it during Skype sex. 

3. DO NOT take screenshots without permission. 

The best thing about Skype sex is the opportunity you have to capture sexy moments with you and your partner.

It's all well and good to want to keep some of those memories, but be decent and make sure you clear it with your honey ahead of time.

Also store them some place safe should you ever want to run for president. 

Keep that shit under lock and key! 

4. DO NOT multitask while you are having Skype sex.


You can do a lot with computers.

But when the thing you are doing on a computer is having Skype sex, that is the only thing you should be doing.

Close out your tabs, save that killer tweet for later, and focus on your partner. 

5. DO NOT respond to text messages during Skype sex.


Yes, please DO these things during Skype sex. 

1. DO get totally naked.

Having Skype sex is a voyeur's dream! 

Give them something to stare at and get naked! 

Skype sex is also a great opportunity to give a striptease. 

Fingers crossed you don't freeze at an inopportune moment. 

2. DO laugh when it gets awkward.


Relax, this is just sex.

It could weird.

There could be noises.

There might be awkward moments.

Embrace that the way you embrace the act of sex itself. 

Don't take yourself too seriously, have fun. 

3. DO remember to use your words. 

It's always important to be able to ask for what you want in the bedroom

This kind of communication goes double when you guys are having Skype sex and thus, not even able to actually touch each other.

Don't be afraid to over-narrate. 

The more detail you give about what you're doing and what you're imagining the better. 

4. DO make sure the lighting is good. 


Skype sex is all well and good but if you can't SEE each other, it's a waste of time that could have been better spent watching Netflix. 

I'm not saying you need to take up a second career as a movie lighting dude or whatever, but make sure your face and body are visible and that there's are too. 

5. DO make sure your door is locked. 

Skype sex like other sex, requires some privacy.

So as caught up in the moment as you might get, don't forget to lock the door and keep yourself from abject embarrassment.
