Stuck at home? Don’t let this pandemic ruin your intimacy.

Social distancing and intimacy certainly don’t go hand in hand. With countries on lockdown and millions made to stay at home, many of us may wonder what it means for our sex lives?

According to NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, COVID-19 can be passed easily through kissing, analingus and other forms of oral sex, since the virus can be transmitted via saliva. It is advised to avoid close contact, including sex, with anyone outside your household. (Sorry, no more meeting up with online sex partners and cuddle pals.) 

Meanwhile, the porn industry has called all porn production to halt due to coronavirus.


Even though the virus has impacted many sexual activities, our sex lives need not take a nosedive. Sex is a wonderful stress-reliever. It floods our body with feel-good hormones and can be a great distraction during this period of time. Perhaps, it is time we look at alternative ways (hello sex tech!) to keep our sexual needs and desires satiated.

As mentioned by Dr Carlos E Rodriguez-Diaz on The Guardian

“Sexual intercourse may decrease during the next few weeks, but other forms of expressing eroticism, such as sexting, video-calls, reading erotica and masturbation will continue to be options.”

So here we are, giving you a guide to intimacy to help you get through this difficult time:

#1: Masturbation

The truth right now is that you are your safest sex partner, since the virus does not spread through masturbation. If you’re looking for a reliable and simple source of solo fun, our latest Vibease Jewel Collection is a great option. Sleek and thoughtfully contoured to fit your body, it’s perfect for beginners and seasoned users alike. Just remember to wash your hands and sex toys with soap and water before and after use!

#2: Long-Distance Play

At Vibease, we aim to close the orgasm gap with sex tech… and now, the intimacy gap during this pandemic. If your partner isn’t next to you, you can still share intimate moments with them with our Vibease and Esthesia SMART vibrators. Designed for long-distance play, connect with them anywhere around the world, in the comfort and safety of your own home.

#3: Audio Erotica

If you’re new to audio erotica, what better time to step into the world of erotic fantasy! Vibease features a wonderfully curated and comprehensive library of audiobooks.

Unlike traditional vibrators, Vibease and Esthesia SMART vibrators react in sync with erotic audiobooks when connected to its Fantasy app via Bluetooth. These vibrations are highly personalised to each fantasy, and vibrate at different intensities and various patterns at just the right moments, much like the perfect partner that knows how to touch you at the right moment in the right way.


Although we can’t be certain how long the social distancing measures will be in place, it's important to remain positive. In fact, it’s a great opportunity to use this time to channel your energy into learning more about yourself and your sexuality. And most importantly, let’s remember to play safe!
