LDS sex therapist Laura M. Brotherson frequently stresses that on date night we should shut off and leave all electronics behind.
I have also learned that 90% of being a good lover is having good communication skills. 10% is technique.
And, 80% of good communication is listening.
For tonight's continue-the-courtship-night idea (if you find yourselves unable to leave home), try this fun exercise.
Make a can and string phone. You can be as engineering (metal can, high tensile fishing line, button), or low tech (yarn and foam cup) as you want.
Put the electronics (phones, cell phones, tablets, PC, TV etc... - YES,electronic sex toys are okay!) off and away.
Go to opposite sides of the room and practice listening. Take turns. Say whatever you want. Whisper sweet nothings. Say sacred erotic things to each other. By your new phone, give each other permission to handle your body a certain way. Use your imagination.
