Lovemaking In A Flash

No matter how much you're in love, if you're like many American women and try to juggle too much, your sex life can go by the wayside before you even realize it.

Happy Couple in Bed

However, while having a healthy sex life is an important part of one's overall happiness, you don't have to forego sleeping or anything else you need to do just to make time for a little nookie. Read on for 4 easy ways to squeeze more sex into your daily life.

Sex Tip #1: Multi-Task

With two kids, a husband, and a movie star career, actress Jennifer Connelly is just like us. Well, not exactly like us, unless you happen to have gorgeous hair and wake up next to Paul Bettany every morning, but she does have a problem squeezing enough sex with that gorgeous Brit into her day. Her solution? Multi-task!

She told Esquire Magazine: "I do like to read a book while having sex. And talk on the phone. You can get so much done."

"If the room's dark enough, I like to do some online shopping," she added.

Who says that sex needs to have our full, undivided attention in order to be fun? In fact, there's nothing like taking an otherwise mundane activity, like showering or talking on the phone, and adding a little sexual kick to it.

Sex Tip #2: Be Creative

Likewise, sex does not always have to happen in a bed at night. If you think you don't have enough time to get it on, it's possible you're just not thinking creatively enough. Think back to when you first met and explore your options for quickie sex. Have 10 minutes alone in a car? 30 minutes while the baby sleeps? Not only will being creative and spontaneous allow you to have more sex during the day, you may be surprised to find that it will likely re-energize and add some much needed vigor to your love life as well. 

Sex Tip #3: Give Yourself a Hand

Don't forget about squeezing in some solo sex too. According to a recent study by Indiana University, over 53 percent of women regularly use a vibrator, and its use is linked to more positive sexual function and good overall sexual health. So, even if you only find yourself with a few minutes to spare, a powerful vibrator like a Hitachi Magic Wand or a Rabbit can get you there quickly.

Sex Tip #4: Plan a Sex Date

I'm not going to lie to you: full-out, mind-blowing, orgasm-inducing sex requires some time. And if you aren't regularly having it because you're time-crunched or have a different schedule than your partner, then get ready to open up that Blackberry calendar and schedule a time and a date. Some may argue that scheduling sex in makes it boring, but I disagree. You don't just spontaneously have a manicure or get a massage, do you? Just because you make an appointment, doesn't mean the experience is any less pleasurable and sometimes just looking forward to some boot-knocking, wild sex with your man is half the fun.

Mid-week - morning - start the working day with something that will make you smile for the rest of it... set a date, and your alarm, for 30 minutes before you normally get up and make love before you go to work. Weekend mornings - if you've got kids leave a note outside your bedroom for them to read telling them that you aren't to be disturbed until a 1/2 hour later than normal, this assumes of course that they are (a) old enough to read, (b) can tell the time and (c) not so old as to be totally grossed out by what they know you are up to!

This Article has made me think back on the early days of my relationship and remember the fun I had with my partner, just kissing for hours and some time we made different places convienient for , like in the small kitchen on the washing machine while he was living with his mother, we were doing it while on the look out for his mom, on the varandah in the night while people walked by, and alot more, so i think Elizabeth Cullen made alot of sence.

This article was so dumb. Reading and talking while having is the worst advice I have heard in a long time. Your partner can't be that good if you can pay attention to a book or not moan while on the phone during . I would be insulted if my partner could do either while I was pleasuring him. In other words PUT DOWN THE BOOK, and GET OFF THE PHONE.

It makes me wonder about some people using the word SHAME, it tells me society is not functional. SHAME is a word that does not exist for some people who are healthy. How unfortunate for you!

ual needs can be used creatively like walking around the block. Using a ual tool is an option also. It does not mean needing to reach orgasm to fulfill this need. Make use of your right side of the brain to find ideas!!! Showing affection to your boyfriend/husband brings two people closer intimately also.
