“Hey Google, turn on sexy time.” When you’re addicted to Netflix, Instagram, and Facebook, it can be hard to find as much time as you want for your partner.
However, not all gadgets kill relationships, as many people have turned to the internet for to share. Among them, Gillian Sisley, who shared on Mama Mia how Google Home changed her sex life in some of the best ways possible – with the help of a little-known feature.
I set my Google Home mini shortcut to play. Let’s turn it on by Marvin Gaye and dim my lights when I say “ok google sexy time”

While the first change was PG: “my husband and I would no longer compete over who could jump into bed faster, letting the slowpoke turn off the bedside lamp that was more than one arm away”, the device quickly got them incentivized for a little more Mr-rated action.
“Spontaneous sex is easier now.”
Why? As Gillian explains, Google Home takes the hassle out of setting the mood: “You know, when you want to ‘get to work’, there are certain sensory things you like to have in place first… like nice background music and sexy add-ons that just “pick up” the atmosphere?”
“Google Home has you covered.”
Enter: your soon to be favorite hidden feature. ‘Activate Sexy Time’, which Gillian says has helped her and “have some of the best sex in our marriage”.
“I recently got back from a five day business trip, and my husband was on a lunch break and happened to be on the road running an errand…He didn’t tell me. seen since I got home, and we were both wayward for good loving.”
“He texted me asking, ‘Enable Sexy Time?’ I replied with an eggplant emoji. It was on.
“Google Home is a huge time saver. A two minute drive away, I was told by my husband to hurry. I ran upstairs and while walking through the master bedroom I shouted ‘Hey Google, turn on Sexy Time,'” says Gillian.
“Immediately, Google started playing a sequence of tasks that I had pre-programmed with my husband months ago… The lights went to a warm purple, and a sultry but hip playlist started playing quietly back -plane, while I threw on some deodorant, sprayed a touch of perfume and brushed my teeth.
“In no time, I was at the front door, greeting my husband in an immediate, passionate embrace that swept us back into the bedroom.”
In terms of the technicalities, this “sexy time” feature works off of a free web service called IFTTT (if this then that), which creates strings of simple conditional statements called applets. Essentially: a way to automate your existing apps and devices to do things they normally wouldn’t.
As IFTTT explains: “Saying ‘OK Google, sexy time’ will dim the Phillips HUE lights to 15% and set the color to red. It will also play music from your Android device. (if your Android device is connected to Google Home via Bluetooth, it will play through the Google Home speaker)…enjoy.
This feature has been coveted for years, with the r/googlehome Reddit community engaging in a heated discussion about how to achieve this last year, before it became a built-in routine on the device (which a Reddit user suggested should have come into force earlier this year).
Anyway: another smart feature that may get you ‘bounce’ more often is the ability to link two Google Home devices so you can whisper to your partner from the bedroom while they’re sitting in the living room, and invite them to have fun.
Perhaps even more impressive is that even when you don’t think about it, Google lends a helping hand, as Gillian writes: “Even when we fail to be sexy, Google Home takes over.”
“’Hey Google, bedroom light at 1%.’ My educated husband. ‘Ooooh, mood lighting?’ [Google asks].”
It is a well-trained technology.
