There are many reasons to be in a long-distance relationship. Maybe you met the man of your dreams on spring break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and he happens to live in Seattle while you live in Atlanta. Whatever the reason, your relationship is basically restricted to online dating.
You not only miss your significant other, but you’re constantly tortured by watching other lovebirds who aren’t separated by state lines. Mastering the art of Skype sex is crucial to any long-distance relationship, but it only works if the two of you can stop breaking into hysterical laughter and eventually get turned on — resulting in a hot and heavy Internet sexcapade. Let’s take a look at how to have non-awkward Skype sex. Read more on YourTango…

I like to think I discovered using the internet to make phone calls long before anyone else did. The year was 2000, and I was backpacking through Asia and had stopped in Calcutta, India to visit with my friend’s extended family. My friend’s cousin and I had gone out nightclubbing and when we returned to his apartment at two o’clock in the morning, he offered for us to call my friend back in San Francisco, for free. Calling from Asia was pricey enough for me to stick to email throughout most of my travels, and I envisioned us breaking Indian law when I watched him put on some headphones and sit down at his computer to make our phone call.
