In the time before quarantine, a sleepy three-day weekend or ordering take out for a cozy night sounded like the best thing ever. Yet, now, after endless weeks of sheltering in place, it seems like quarantine can feel like a little too much time at home. When you haven’t worn anything but sweatpants in a month and your showers are getting fewer and farther between, you may be feeling like this pandemic is damping your romance.
Additionally, when you and your partner are both working at home, up in each other’s space ALL day every day, you may be more in the mood for some alone time than some sexy time. And of course, there is the fact that we’re living through a global pandemic, and no one knows when it’s going to be over.
Breakups can be horribly painful even in the best circumstances. Breaking up during quarantine can cause even more emotional havoc, heretofore unseen in our lifetime. Splitting up has never been more complicated or just plain weird.
The rules of breakups have changed. There are all these memes saying “no matter how scared or lonely you are, don’t text your ex.” Well, that sounds good in theory, but in the middle of an adrenaline-pumping global crisis, it is easier said than done. Continue Reading
When you think about porn, one’s moral code is rarely the first thing that comes to mind.
However, if you’re someone who’s struggled with feeling satisfied by the mainstream style of money shots and gratuitous plots—you’re definitely not alone.
Since our world has been turned upside down by Covid-19, and we are shut inside due to social distancing measures, we might be feeling like the days are running into each other.
You’ve seen the memes talking about forgetting which day it is, right? Well, that “losing time” can be a great gift – but it also can cause us to forget to make some occasion special even during quarantine.
How do you make a day feel like a celebration when every day seems the same? How do you keep special occasions “special”? Here are some tips to help you celebrate during this time.
There’s a lot that goes into forming a healthy relationship. There’s compromise, establishing boundaries, and of course choosing a Thai take out place you both like. Underneath it all, however, is a foundation of trust.
Trust and honesty ensure that you and your partner can be on the same page through the good times, and the not so good ones. (Like when you’re fighting about Thai takeout places.)
People talk about trust all the time. But what does it really mean? Let’s break down the building blocks of trust in a healthy relationship.
Listening. Seems simple, right? Well, if you’ve ever had a single conversation, you know that it’s not that easy. Anyone can stop talking long enough to give someone else the mic, but really listening is a totally different story.
It’s safe to say that most people don’t really know how to effectively listen. It’s more involved than you think! Now that we’re in close quarters with our loved ones, knowing how to lend an ear is more important than ever.
So we at Sex With Emily decided that we’d give you some tips on how to tune in, when tuning out is ever so simple. So, listen up, because it’s time to level up your listening game!
If you live…anywhere in the world, you’re probably practicing social distancing. If you live with your partner, you might be craving a little social distance from them.
Around the world couples are being kept in a pressure cooker called… our homes.
Depending on your dynamic, it might be a little harder than you thought to keep things sailing smoothly.
It’s perfectly normal to experience a little cabin fever at this point, but don’t let isolation turn you and your beloved against one another. Like a research team on Antarctica, you’re going to have to work together to get through the winter til the snow thaws. No matter how annoying your teammates snoring gets.
Here are some key points to battling cabin fever as a cohabitating, quarantined couple.
