Quickies get a bad reputation, but just like a Big Mac from the drive-thru window sometimes all you really want is something immediate and dirty. There’s no need to make sex a big production every time you and your partner go at it. In fact, quickies can add much needed heat and spontaneity to long-term relationships when predictability starts to threaten your sex life. But there’s a difference between a good quickie and just plain quick sex. Here’s how to do justice to the underrated act…
Pounce: Sure, maybe your significant other is in the middle of explaining why now would be a good time to invest in a new washer and dryer, but interrupt that thought by mauling him or her with your libido’s irrepressible urges. If you two still have serious chemistry, your partner will be all about forgoing a discussion on washers to get dirty.
Think outside the bedroom: Sure, you could easily take things to the bedroom, but the whole point of the quickie should be rooted in immediate need. This gives you the opportunity to christen all kinds of new places with your mutual lust for one another: living room carpets, kitchen counters, and public bathrooms the world over.
Get tangled up in your clothes: There’s no need to take your socks off or even your pants for that matter. You can kiss each other all over another time. There’s something surprisingly erotic about having one arm caught in the sleeve of your shirt because you couldn’t get it off fast enough. Besides, if you’re going to take your quickie on the road (read: janitors’ closets and the aforementioned public washrooms) you probably won’t like the idea of your clothes having spent time on the floor once all is said and done.
Be loud and aggressive: Quickies don’t allow for mood-enhancing foreplay, which means you’ve got to bring the heat up to high in 0 to 60 seconds. This gives you license to be more rough than usual and say the things you sometimes resist saying when having so-called “meaningful sex.”
Don’t bother with post-coital nonsense: You can cuddle any other day of the week. To show your appreciation for the animal nature of the quickie, don’t lie in each other’s arms after, basking in your mutual bliss. Put your clothes back on and get on with your day. It will keep both you and your partner on your toes, in hot anticipation of the next time one of your libidos gets the better of you.
