Got A Long Day Ahead? Forget The Red Bull: Have A Quickie

Got A Long Day Ahead? Forget The Red Bull: Have A Quickie

If you’ve got a long day ahead of you and you’re thinking of reaching for a caffeine-filled energy drink or double espresso: think again. A short ten-minute quickie in-between snooze alarms can really give you the added boost you need to make it through the day.

The science is simple: having sex boosts your energy levels, releases endorphins and other feel-good hormones, and wakes you up better than a cup of coffee on a rainy morning. It’s also a great way to get your morning exercise without huffing and puffing through some sit-ups. And, if you climax during your quickie, it’s a great way to give you an added boost of energy that will let you tackle the day ahead with renewed vigour.

In addition to giving you a much-needed boost in the early hours of a long day, quickies also helps to add a new satisfying dimension to your sex life. Sex is no longer confined to ‘vanilla” positions under the covers because quickies can be experienced and enjoyed in some fun places. The shower is a popular quickie spot as you can easily soap up and clean off after sex, and any other space in your home or office can be reimagined as a good spot for quickie sex provided it is private and safe.

Quickies don’t have to last ages: as the name suggests, the idea is simply to enjoy a quick bout of love-making where both parties aim to reach climax. Quickies can be as fast as a few minutes or as long as half an hour: it all depends on how much time you have available. Get involved with your partner and help stimulate your sensitive areas for better, faster sex that is satisfying and energising.

In my free time, I love to paint and go on long walks on the beach. One of my latest obsessions is sudoku – a wonderful activity to calm an unease mind.
