The Quickie Quiz

  3. Generally, I am too stressed for sex. (Yes – 2 points, No – 1 point)

  10. Sex is pretty much a once a week (or less) kind of thing. (Yes – 2 points, No – 1 point)

How Do You Rate?

16-20 Points – Okay. We get it. Sex is kind of an annoying chore that you really would rather not do. Like the dishes. But, the dishes pretty much have to be done or they turn really gross. And your husband, well, he can take care of himself.

Whatever the case, try to put a bit of effort into your sex life and see if it makes a difference to your general well-being. And, if you really can’t find the time, ask your hubby to do the dishes. And you do the rest.

15-11 points – There is room for improvement in your sex life but hey, you’ve got a bit of a balance. And that’s better than nothing, right?

10 or less – Sex is part of your regular routine and you seem to have mastered it. Congratulations! Now make sure you share these results with your partner so he knows just how lucky he is to have you!

Speedy Sex Isn’t All That Bad

It’s no secret that sexperts believe sex is a key ingredient to a happy relationship. But it doesn’t have to be long, passionate or intense every time. Quickies have a bad rep for being a lazy act of real sex. But, turns out, even a quick sexual encounter can be healthy for couples.

So even if you don’t have time to light the candles, book a hotel or even manage to get all your clothes off, a little bit of fun is better than none!
