Let’s face it, being in a long distance relationship can feel like dating in Hard mode. LDR’s can involve a lot of extra work and planning, and they’re usually/almost always defined by your partner(s) not physically being in the same place as you. In terms of intimacy, that distance can be a real bummer. Sure, there are plenty of ways to try to keep that intimacy alive when you are separated — letters, texts, phone call, video chats, and more– but all of those can leave something to be desired when it comes to, well, orgasms.
Here’s the good news, though: we live in the future. That means we have the technology to make it so being in an LDR doesn’t have to mean your sex life is nonexistent or unsatisfying for huge periods of time. There are powerful tools available to help keep the orgasmic bliss going when you and your partner can’t physically be together, and today we’re going ro explore those tools! That’s right; we are talking about long distance vibrators!
These technological wonders can help long distance sex partners feel close when they are far apart and deliver some intense pleasure while they do it. What’s more, advancements in both connectivity and app technology mean that many of these adult sex toys come complete with things like video chat technology, image sharing, and more. So let’s talk about what long distance or remote control vibrators are, how they work, what types are available (spoiler alert: there are a whole lot!), and how to select the best one for you and your partner! Read on to learn everyone you ever wanted to know about long distance vibrators!
What is a long distance vibrator?
Before we can find the best long distance vibrator for you, it would help to understand what a long distance vibrator is. A word you might hear in reference to long distance vibes is “teledildonics” (cool word, right?) and understanding what that term means will help us get a grasp on what a long distance vibrator is and why they can be fun. Teledildonics refers to “electronic sex toys operated with computers or devices that use data”. So, with that in mind, long distance vibrators are toys that let someone else control them – often from anywhere in the world.
These days there are a lot of options too! As more companies have gotten into the teledildonics game, the selection of long distance toys has grown to include app-controlled vibrators, wand massages, suction stimulators, strokers, cock rings, anal plugs and more. Some users enjoy these toys because they allow them to feel closer to their partner, while others enjoy surprising each other with a pleasant vibration (especially with something like a panty vibe or butt plug that can be worn under clothes). The upshot here is that distance needn’t throw the kibosh on your sex life. With long distance vibrators you can stimulate your partner’s most sensitive parts no matter how far you are from home.
So, how do you find the right long distance vibrator for you and your partner? This is an excellent question because I am not kidding when I say there are a whole lot of options available. I don’t just mean different brands or slightly different styles either! You have options regarding what you want to stimulate, how you want to stimulate it, and how you would like your partner to be part of that experience. What a time to be alive! I’m not going to leave you hanging here, read on for a breakdown of the best types of sex toys for a long distance relationship. Now, “best” is always subjective but with all these options, you are bound to find what’s best for you!

This can be fun for couples who like to tease each other as well as folks who are in d/s relationships.
Long Distance Panty Vibe Recommendation: We-Vibe Moxie+
The Moxie+ has one of the most secure mechanisms for attaching the vibe to panties– it uses a strong magnet! Not only does that keep it in place but it also means users can figure out where to attach it to get the best stimulation for them. The We-Connect app gives users VIP access to extra modes of vibration, the ability to create custom vibe patterns, a chat function over a secure connection, and visuals to help connect couples, even when apart.
Vibrating cock rings are often seen as something that enhances partnered sex by stimulating both participants but they can also take masturbation to the next level. Toss one on while video chatting, let your partner take control and get ready for some fun!
