Simply having an internet connection will enable you to connect with your friends from all around the globe for FREE!So whether your partner goes to a different school, is abroad this semester, or is your 35-year-old neighbor back home, read below for some tips on how to make the most of your Skype sex experience. Just like in everyday sex, neither of you have anything to prove. Practice being in front of a webcam and know the things that make you feel sexy when you’re “on display.” Whether it’s the lighting, the clothing, or the positioning, be aware of what makes you feel good.

Talk about what worked and what didn’t and if you would be interested in doing it again. As much as you may love the sex, that’s not all Skype is for. So set a date, some ground rules, lock your door, and have some fun!Remember that you are doing this to enjoy each other so have fun with it!

Make sure you are getting the most pleasure and that you are comfortable. Skype sex (and mutual masturbation in general) is an amazing way to share an intimate part of yourself with your partner. Your partner will know if you’re having a good time and they will be into it, too. Show appreciation for your partner and give them encouragement.
