We’ve all been through it… Kids everywhere, dishes in the sink, somebody needs a ride, fresh clothes in the basket to be folded, the car needs an oil change AND the phone is ringing.  BUT you look over at your spouse over there looking fine as ever.  Maybe its the way the sun is hitting her hair, or the way he stepped in the door in his work boots.  Anything could trigger it!  All you know is that the heat is on and you want to pounce but what can you do?

The answer:  A “quickie”. Now if you don’t know what a “quickie” is let me say it in other terms:  “nooner”, “6 minutes in paradise”, “afternoon delight”, etc.  Whatever phrase you use, the meaning is the same… its quick sex.  Please don’t scoff.  I am speaking of quick sex between two consenting and married adults.  Quick sex is usually not romantic, sometimes it’s really not that intimate.  It’s more passionate and heated usually, impulsive, hot even.

Oh but what it does for the married relationship is beautiful. It takes you back to when you were first dating (well I can’t speak for ya’ll) maybe even back to when you were younger and more free.  Back to a time before kids, before schedules and before responsibilities.  Its just a few minutes of bliss to get you through.  Its better than any drug.  It’s better than anything.

After all what is hotter than lusting after your own mate? The only problem that you may encounter from “quickie” sex is afterwards when the kids or other folks begin to ask questions.  Like, “Why is your shirt inside out?” or “What happened to your hair?” or “Mommy? Why does daddy have your lipstick all over his mouth?”  Well, have no fear, we have come up with a few ways for you to ensure that your “quickies” are successful and that it does not bring about many questions from your kids or whoever else might be in your vicinity.

Check out 10 Tips on Having a Successful “Quickie” and then let us know if you have any embarrassing “quickie” stories?

The "Bat Signal"

You know the Bat signal? The skylight that Gotham City uses when they need Batman to come? A mutually agreed upon code. Ok it does not have be quite so dramatic. It can be a nod. A gaze. A cough. Psst. Something that you both know means, let's go.

    We love our quickies! One aspect we’re working on is the timing…our shortest quickie is 20 MINUTES! We are having fun trying to knock a few minutes each time, though!!! :-)

    I guess we really don’t have quickies like that. I guess we wait till w have time for everyone to get the best “bang” for their buck!..lol…but I do like the signal thing…we just both slowly make it in the bedroom. but we will find a code word or something! thanks!!!

    Great tips but MUCH harder to pull off when you only have one child and you live in a tiny 2-br apartment!! If we go missing for 10 mins it’s really obvious!

      Set up the dvd player, hit play, have the undergarments off prior to pressing play. Go to another room, get it in before the little one even looks up from Dora the Explorer or Bubble Guppies.

    LOL… I keep offering my husband some “lunch booty”… but he works in the neighboring city so we don’t get to meet up which sucks! Thanks for the tips and the laugh!!
