We’ve all seen articles about how to make sex last longer and how to make love for hours, but let’s be real. Who has the time? Life keeps you busy enough, and then there’s precious, precious sleep to be had. When exactly are you supposed to fit ‘it’ in?
It’s time to take back the quickie and bask in it’s fast and furious glory. Here are six tips to having great (okay, pretty good) sex in under 10 minutes.
Take a minute for yourself
Before you do anything else, take a few deep breaths and relax. Take a minute (or three) to get in the moment. Maybe try a mindfulness exercise. Live in the now. At least for now. Worrying about the laundry list of to-do’s can wait 10 minutes.
Get things started, digitally
Sending a few suggestive text messages to your partner throughout the day can be be sexy and unexpected. If you’re not sure what to say, start with emoji. Long live the eggplant and open-mouth surprised face! Pictures work, too, but be warned: you can’t undo those things.
Say yes to foreplay
Think of the aforementioned texts as your foreplay’s foreplay. Once you’re at home, don’t skip the kissing, caressing, licking and touching. If your partner isn’t home yet, take the DIY route; use carefully selected visuals to get yourself even more in the mood. Before there’s any sign of penetration, you’ll already be halfway there.
Choose somewhere other than the bedroom
Bedroom sex can feel so “been there, done that.” A subtle change in scenery can go a long way to make the romp feel unexpected and exciting. Consider the bathroom for its ample mirrors.
Stay partially clothed
Instead of stripping down to your birthday suit, keep (some of) your clothes on. Let’s face it, it’s way faster. But more importantly, it’ll feel more like a passionate tryst than your regular scheduled programming.
One word: Lube
Lube can make a huge difference in the quality and speed of your sexual encounter. Get things instantly wet with a few squirts on both you and your partner.
Okay, now get busy! See you back here in ten minutes.
