If you’re unsure what Skype sex is, let us fill you in: It’s when you and your partner masturbate together over Skype (or FaceTime) while one of you is in a different location. You might be doing a long-distance relationship, or perhaps your cutie is on a business trip or visiting friends. Either way, it is a fun and hot way to be intimate without the physical contact of face-to-face intimacy.
So, how does one get camera ready for on-camera sex with oneself whilst their wayward partner watches? No stressing out. We have you covered as always.
Now, don’t get worked up about the term “camera ready.” If you feel hot in a hoodie and a messy bun, do your thing. If you prefer dressing in a body-con dress and putting on a serious show for your boo, you go girl.
These are just a few helpful tips to assist you in looking and feeling your flyest before Skype sex. Can’t we all use a hand in feeling extra sexy and confident now and then? OK, here we go little cam girl.
Set yourself up near a window or soft lighting
If it’s daytime or evening, take advantage of that natural lighting. Sit in front of a window. You can close the blinds slightly so as not to wash out your face. You will look like a glowy angel and your partner will literally not know what to do with themselves.
If it’s nighttime, set up some low lighting. We suggest lamps with soft white bulbs. If you want to get extra sexy, wrap some fairy lights around the room, on the wall, or wherever there’s some space. (We love these from Amazon.) Lighting is super underrated and adds so much sexiness to a space in general. It’s just a good investment, TBH.
Plus, a soft glow on that gorgeous skin of yours is going to make those naked shots so incredible.
Pick your gear
This is Skype sex, baby. Get out your favorite vibrator and get ready to party. When choosing which of your sex toys to use, think about your partner. Is there a particular toy in your collection that he or she likes? Do you just have the one old faithful? Is your hand the go-to? Either way, make sure you are prepared.
Have your favorite lube on-hand, off screen. Lube is a must-have for masturbation, but with Skype sex, we suggest keeping the mystery alive and hiding the bottle to the side.
Unlike real sex, this is a fun, playful performance that involves very real orgasms. Lube up your gear beforehand and get ready to go.
Find your angles
There are two angles that make Skype sex extra dirty (in a good way). You can either use your phone and hold it above you for a downward angle of your torso and vulva, or straddle your computer so your partner gets an up close and person view of everything you have going on.
We personally prefer option two. It’s a really easy way to be sure your hubs or wifey is seeing everything. And we do mean everything. If you’re unsure which angle works best for you, turn your camera around pre-Skype call and do some experimenting. At the end of the day, it’s about how you feel sexiest.
Skype sex is like phone sex, only with visuals. Talking dirty really ups the game. Think of a few key phrases before you get on camera. Since they’re on screen, talk about how sexy they look. Tell them how much you love seeing them touch themselves.
If you want them to reciprocate, ask them how they want you to touch yourself. If talking is too much, make some noise. Those moans and sighs go a long way to turn each other on. You got it, babe.

Don’t worry about makeup
Throw on a sexy shade of lipstick and call it a day. On your computer’s camera, you’ll barely be able to tell whether you’re wearing makeup or not.
In the same vein, if you want to groom your downstairs bits, feel free, but you don’t need to spend $50 on a Brazilian wax for a Skype session.
The camera isn’t high-quality enough to catch those details. Plus, your partner is not going to be looking at your bikini line. They have other, more important things to be focusing on right now, OK?
