What Is a Quickie and When Should You Have It?

What is a quickie and does having it benefit you? If you want to feel good fast and on a short time schedule, here’s what you need to know about doing the deed in a hurry!

Of all the ways to have sex, quickies are actually one of the best. Before you stop me, I don’t mean those times when he finishes before you and you’re left frustrated and unsatisfied, I mean a spontaneous, fast romp when you’re supposed to be doing something else!

What is a quickie you ask? A quickie can be summed up as really fast and hot sex that you both enjoy when you really don’t have the time for a long session of foreplay and lovemaking. For that reason, quickies are best when you’re already in the mood. Here’s how to do it.


First thing in the morning is best:

I know a lot of people who put off morning sex for a number of reasons. Some don’t like the idea of morning breath, some are afraid they’ll be late for work, and others are just uncomfortable being naked in broad daylight. Those people are missing out. Morning sex is the best time for a quickie for lots of fabulous reasons:


1. He’s already hard

You don’t have to get all involved in the foreplay or coax your man into getting in the mood, he’s already got his morning wood on for you! A morning quickie is perfect for the simple reason that you don’t have to bother with the work up.

2. You’re already naked

Chances are, you’re both already naked or, at least, pretty close to it. I for one sleep in a t-shirt and panties in the winter and nothing at all in the summer. Those times I do have a lover are great, because morning sex is pretty much a guarantee for both of us. He’s already in the mood, I’m already lacking clothes…it just works out. If this is you, then I don’t know why you haven’t had a morning quickie before.


3. It wakes you up fast!

Having sex first thing in the morning is a great way to get energized for you day! If you’re the kind of person who likes to go to the gym before work, then remember this: Sex burns A LOT of calories. Skip the trip to the treadmill and burn off those calories (and energize yourself) the old-fashioned way.

4. You’ll be more relaxed for work

I also suggest having a morning quickie because you’ll be much more relaxed for work. Let’s be honest, sex makes us happy. There’s no reason to wait until you’re exhausted from a long, hard day at the office to have sex, do it first thing in the morning when you’re ready to start a new day and you’re feeling good. You know, before reality sets in and you’re at a desk under florescent lights for the next eight hours.


A quickie during the day:

You don’t have to limit a quickie to the morning, though. Some people really just aren’t morning people. You can always have a quickie at any time of the day or night. The thing to remember is that a quickie must be quick and must be satisfying, so make sure you and your man are in the mood. I recommend some hot and heavy dirty talk by text to set the stage for this.


1. Wear easily accessible clothing

If you’re going to have a quickie, the last thing you need to do is waste time getting undressed. Don’t put on your high heels and pantyhose for this; wear something with easy access instead. I recommend your favorite (cute) little yoga pants and a t-shirt. You’re not trying to dress to impress, you’re trying to have really quick sex!

2. Be spontaneous (don’t plan it all out)

While you can make a generally planned time for a quickie, you shouldn’t try so hard. It’s much more exciting when it’s unexpected and full of heat and passion! Planning too much into your quick little sex play is only going to ruin the mood. Let it happen when it happens, and whatever you do, don’t say “now’s not the time”. Now IS the time!


3. Or…plan it for lunch

The exception I make to the “don’t plan it out” rule is when you plan a mid-afternoon lunch break quickie. There’s nothing more satisfying than coming home in the middle of the afternoon, having hot sex, and then going back to work with your naughty little secret. Seriously, you can plan to make your lunch hour match your man’s and meet at home for a little lunchtime fun.

4. Try it someplace new

Don’t assume a quickie has to be done in the bedroom, either. I’ve had a quickie on the living room floor, barely inside the front door, simply because we were too worked up to make it to the bedroom.

For those times when a quickie happens spontaneously in the middle of the day or evening, try the kitchen cabinets, the living room couch, the stairs, the floor, or anywhere else you can get naked without the neighbors seeing you.

Unless you want them to see you. That’s a different story.


Your quickie shouldn’t be thought out, it doesn’t have to be romantic and you definitely don’t have to look your best. Which is another reason why doing it first thing in the morning is the best for a quickie.

If you’re worried about your breath, keep a packet of Listerine mouth melts on the dresser, and pop one in to quickly mask that morning breath before you start kissing your man. Or, each of you could take a quick morning swig from a bottle of water.

All you really need for a quickie is to be in the mood for sex. That’s it. You want sex, you want it now, and you’ve only got about five minutes. You can do this in five minutes. So, why aren’t you doing it right now?

Any advice on having great quickies? You should always share your wisdom with others willing to listen.
