In a perfect world, knocking boots would always be a volcano-erupting, headboard-breaking experience that leaves us giddy for days. But the reality is that (too) many things can put a damper on our sex lives, which is why so many of us are turning to sex therapy for guidance. Don't want to shell out the cash? These tips from our go-to love docs will help you put the kibosh on six prevalant probs. The best way to combat this is to meet in the middle.
It was only a matter of time before someone created a'Fitbit for your penis." Named Lovely, the sex toy links up with your smartphone and uses your data to recommend more than 120 different sex positions and ways you can improve your sex life. Lovely's sex toy tracks things like calories burned during sex to the number of thrusts and your top speed. The toy also vibrates to help provide stimulation during sex. The designers say its tracking software isn't just for couples, but for all types of relationships.
Let's say your relationship is on the rocks. You've been trying to work things out together in couples' counselling, but ultimately, you want to know if it is worth the effort. Will things get better, or are they doomed to fall apart? It might be worth just pausing for a second to listen to your partner. When you speak to each other, your voices hold all sorts of information that could reveal the answer.
You've got data from every other moment of your waking life, why shouldn't you have it for your sexual encounters too? That's exactly what Lovely -- a new wearable that is part tracker, part sex toy -- is aiming to provide. The device, on sale today for $169, is essentially a stretchy silicone ring worn around the base of the penis -- though it could also be put on a finger or a dildo. It uses sensors to measure movement and position and sends that info to an app (available for Android and iOS) via Bluetooth. You can then see your top speed, the number of thrusts you recorded and how many calories you burned during sex.
