Sometimes sex can be an exhausting enterprise. Every body enjoys having sex, right? But it seems to require so much prep work, effort, imagination and time that sometimes it’s easier to plop down in front of the TV, buzz through the DVR recordings and heat up some popcorn. It’s easy to forget that a short but passionate sexual rendezvous can be quite rewarding, and it can be as simple as jumping in the shower and getting physical with your lover. You don’t need to go through the whole classical music, candles, striptease, rose petals and foreplay process every time. Consider just a few of the benefits that you can enjoy with the occasional quickie.
Make It Quick – Make It Matter
A physical and emotional boost. According to research studies, sex results in a release of many important feel-good hormones, like dopamine and serotonin, which not only provide the benefit of mood enhancement, but also relieve pain and help you sleep easier at night. The therapeutic benefits of sex have long been documented by the medical community, and best of all, this is one prescription you don’t need to pay for—well most of the time.
Closeness with someone special. Lack of sexual fulfillment remains the leading cause of marital strife and divorce. Without frequent physical intimacy, couples tend to drift apart, not just physically, but emotionally. Even a quick sexual escape can keep the fire burning when the intimacy starts to go stale.
Less pressure on both partners. If every sexual encounter had to be a show stopping Broadway performance in three acts, both partners would experience tremendous pressure and even performance anxiety. If you and your partner are comfortable enough to enjoy the occasional quick release, then you might embrace and appreciate the longer sessions.
The potential for sex without limitations. When you’re not afraid to enjoy the occasional quickie, just think of the possibilities: sex during your lunch hour, before work, in the bedroom while you’re “getting changed for dinner.” The sky’s the limit.
Tips for Women
Granted, quickies tend to be a bit easier for men than for women, but that doesn’t mean that women can’t achieve the same level—if not a greater level—of satisfaction. If you’re a woman who has difficulty climaxing during those rapid encounters, consider using sex toys for clitoral stimulation. Herbal treatments, meanwhile, can increase your sensitivity by improving blood flow to the vaginal area.
