Sex is such a huge part of daily life that it's just natural that people think, talk or write about it so much. Sexual preferences, attitudes and behaviors vary from person to person, making sex an ever-lasting quest. Sex is also the most important way a couple expresses themselves to each other, occuring in many different situations. Here are some of the most common types of lovin' that happens in a healthy and happy relationship!

Man & Woman

1. A quickie

Ah, the infamous time-saver. Everyone from high school students whose backseat acts as the backseat to married couples that need to get a fast burst of pleasure before getting up for work the next morning. This might be the most commo for a lot of couples for lack of time or space. But a quickie can be exciting and pleasurable if done right.

2. Forbidden sex

This type of sex can either be in a secret place (i.e. a public area) or a with a secret lover (i.e. a married man). As exciting as forbidden sex is, the lines between wrong and right blur heavily for most people. So go ahead, have sex in the backseat of your SUV with your husband for kicks, just make sure you don't get arrested!

3. Romantic Sex

This is usually reserved for holidays, anniversaries, vacations and other intimate ocassions. Whipping out the fancy bottle of Moet and cuddling next to the fireplace in attempt to stir things up and is something all couples need to indulge in once in a while.
