How to Have a Quickie: Our Top Tips
Whether you’re taking a camping trip, heading to a music festival, or keeping your kids busy all day, your summer plans might not leave a lot of time—or space—for sex.
But don’t worry! We’ll show you how to have a quickie that’ll leave you satisfied, even if you’ve only got 15 minutes. The tips below focus on partner play, but you can speed up your private practice, too. Click over to our guide, “Pulsators for Quickies vs. Slowgasms,” to find a toy that’ll get the job done fast.
QUICKIE TIPS YOU CAN DO AHEAD
If you think you might get busy later, then leave your strappy garter belt in the drawer. Opt for easy-on, easy-off clothes and underwear, or any outfit your partner’s said they love. You could even go commando, if you’re daring. Then, if you won’t see your person for most of the day, build anticipation with some flirty texts.
The last of our do-ahead quickie tips is crucial, but easy to forget: Charge your toys!
When it’s time to have FUN, get each other in the mood fast by saying exactly what you want to do to each other. (Not feeling chatty? You can still make some noise to let your partner know how much you like what’s going on.)
USE A VIBRATOR TO AMP YOUR AROUSAL
Vibrators aren’t just for orgasms. (Although we’re not complaining about that part.) They also boost physical arousal by increasing blood flow where it counts. When you’re getting hot and heavy in a hurry, a couple-friendly vibe like BE·ONE can be your BFF. It’s ergonomically shaped to blend into your natural touch, so you can enhance a massage with vibration or supercharge hand jobs and fingering.
USE LUBE FOR THE PERFECT QUICKIE
If there’s a vag in the mix, there’s a good chance that a few minutes isn’t enough time to get as wet as you’d like. Bring on the lube! (Also, always add lube for anal!) As a bonus, the feeling of wetness reminds your brain that something sexy is happening, which gets you more turned on, for an awesome feedback loop of arousal. Additionally, a long vibe like LADY BI can be used to massage the A-spot, the area near the cervix, which can increase arousal and lubrication.
MIX UP THE FAMILIAR AND THE TABOO
This isn’t the moment to try out an acrobatic new position: This time, stick to the moves you both already love. That doesn’t mean that your quickie has to be “the sex that we normally have, but faster.” Add an element of taboo by having sex anywhere but in bed, adding some light restraint, or anything else that gets you excited.
MAKE A PLAYLIST THAT GETS YOU IN THE MOOD
While it’s smart to set a timer, the shrill beeping can be a real buzzkill. Instead, make a short playlist of songs that get you in the mood. When the playlist runs out, you’ll know it’s time to wrap up the quickie sex, high five each other, and start getting dressed.
