If you and your partner are tight on time, sometimes sex can feel like the last thing on your to-do list. But give it a chance — it doesn't have to be mind-blowing, candlelit, straight-from-a-movie sex. Try a quickie every once in a while!
Next time your partner walks through the door, kiss him or her hello and then get busy right away. They won't know what hit them and the excitement will all be over in a few sweaty, fun minutes. A quickie can actually help dissolve any stress you're under from your overwhelming day-to-day and leave you clear headed, refreshed and ready to take on any challenges coming your way.
Check out the hottest types of quickies to sweep your partner off their feet.
Probably the original form of the quickie, you're familiar with need-you-now sex. You know, the kind where the chemistry is undeniable, the air is thick with sexual tension and you go from zero to 60 in about three seconds flat.
Next time you're watching Netflix or having dinner together at home, bring up the last quickie you two had. Reminiscing on a specific sexy memory will jog both of your memories so quickly you'll be in the bedroom (or living room or wherever) before you can blink.
While super fun and a major turn-on, shower sex isn't always the most practical — especially if there's a dramatic height difference between the two of you. Plus, water isn't exactly a lubricant, despite what you may think.
But just because you can't do the deed in the shower doesn't mean you can't start in the shower. Speed up foreplay by hopping into the shower when your partner is finishing up, or wait until he or she is drying off to make your entrance, whipping the towel off and moving the party into the bedroom.
If the key to good sex involves the novelty of a fantasty or simply a new setting for the two of you, you don't actually have to get a pricey hotel room for the night. Try a different room in the house than the bedroom, or create a fun fort to surprise your partner with later.
Want to take it a step further? Get wild in the great outdoors. The rush of adrenaline and thought of getting caught keeps things hot, while actually rushing to finish up before someone sees will keep things quick.
If the problem for quickies for you is not being able to get into the moment fast enough, try a little foreplay throughout the day. Whisper in each other's ears in public, send racy texts throughout the day, etc. You'll be rearing to go once you get home.
Another way to get right down to business is to work out together beforehand. The endorphins will kick in for both of you at the same time, and you can get in a quick sex session before they wear off.
Especially with parents, it can be hard to find time to squeeze in a little one-on-one time. So if the two of you like to sleep fully clothed in case a certain someone has a nightmare in the middle of the night, try having sex with your clothes on.
The friction of your clothes combined with the movements from your partner could be hotter than you think. Plus, it'll feel like your dirty little secret, making it that much more fun. This one doesn't have to be full-on penetrative sex, either. Take turns going down on one another for a quick, delightful romp.
Find the time of day when you and your partner are feeling the friskiest and exploit it. If sex at bedtime is usually way too daunting or exhausting, wake up a few minutes early and make some moves.
Not only is morning sex the best because you can fit it easily into a busy day, but it will help wake both of you up and start your day off on the right side of the bed, literally.
