Want Better Sex? Leave Your Phone Out of It

Smartphones, tablets and laptops are really great. They allow us to do so many different things. You can chat with people on multiple platforms at any time of day or night for free, all over the world, you can check your bank account, log your fitness activities, check social media and more. People are getting more and more addicted to their devices and it shows. A 2011 survey showed that most adults were at least watching TV in the hour before bed, and others were even using their smartphones. 5 years back, 10% of people reported waking up a few times in the middle of the night because of their phone, and that number must be higher now, 5 years later as we are even more glued to our devices.

Some people believe that technology can help us have better sex, and there are a few apps and sex toys that offer smartphone connectivity that purport to improve sex lives. There are apps like UnderCover or Kindu which give you suggestions for creative and kinky things to do in the sack, and there are toys like OhMiBod which connect with your device to allow your partner to control it from afar. There is even a cock ring in development which will act like a fitness tracker for your cock, giving you details about your sex life and helping you to improve it through the associated app.

However, a new study shows that in the UK people are having less sex than ever. Couples used to have sex 5 times per month, and now they are only having sex about 3 times per month. The researchers attributed this change to all of the technology that is available to people to use as a distraction. It may be subconsciously turning your partner off to take your smartphone into bed and check your favorite social network or catch up on that sitcom you’ve been binge-watching. Even though inviting someone over to stream some TV has a stereotype of leading to sex, it may be that all the binge-watching leads to less sex in committed couples.

There are many ways to include technology in your sex life without bringing your phone to bed. Sexting is a great way to use your smartphone that actually gets the juices flowing instead of being a boner killer. Sending your sweetie an XXX missive during the day can set the stage for a hot night of passion. It’s even better when you include a picture! You could even send your sweetie a link to your favorite porn video to get them going before your hot encounter.

For those who are single or away from their partners, technology is a must. Virtual reality porn is already making porn experiences even more realistic and setting a precedent for high quality content that really makes porn fans pop. Sex and technology going together isn’t all bad, but it seems like leaving the tech out of the bed could be helpful for improving your sex life, if it has been suffering lately. Less tech could equal more sex, so it might be worth a try.
