The 20-Minute Quickie

Despite what you hear, longer isn’t always better. In fact, sometimes shorter gets the job done just as good.

Take S-E-X, for example. Many claim that getting a “quickie,” is good and even sometimes better than a long, drawn out romp in the sack. A quickie is usually defined as a brief or spontaneous episode of sexual activity, with the act finishing in a very short amount of time. Generally, at least one of the partners climaxes.

In fact, here are three positions that allow for you to be passionate and efficient at the same time:

The Stand and Deliver
This involves simply entering your partner from behind in a standing position. It’s sexy, allows for maximum pleasure, and, as it doesn’t require clothes to come off. Plus, its easy to disengage from if someone happens to walk in. Remember, all quickies don’t require full nudity, which is part of their fun (wink, wink).

The Close Quarters
If time is of the essence and so is space, this quickie position provides maximum pleasure. The man positions himself farther up on the woman’s body, with his arms and hands near her head, an adjustment that results in more clitoral grind-age. This is a favorite among many women, because it allows her to simultaneously squeeze his shaft between her thighs, and grind her clitoris against his pelvic bone.

The Wake And Shake
Wake him up with the feel of your mouth between his legs, kissing, licking, and sucking. Go ahead and moan if the mood strikes, and make sure you have consent before you start, but don’t say a word throughout the whole experience after that! Once he’s well awake, climb on him and start riding him. Guide his hand to where you need it or use your own hand. Even though you’ll be moving slowly on him, between the surprise morning BJ and wonders of morning wood, it will likely end up being a quickie, even if that’s not what you had in mind.

Now, quick or fast aren’t usually the words used to describe health care. We usually equate taking more time with a better quality healthcare experience. However, that’s not true when it comes to HIV testing. There’s now a “quickie” test that gives accurate, safe and secure HIV diagnosis right from the privacy of your own home within 20 minutes.

OraQuick: Get HIV Results In 20 Minutes

OraQuick® is the first FDA-approved oral swab in-home test for HIV-1 and HIV-2. It’s an oral swab test that doesn’t require blood. Results are available in 20 minutes. It’s completely private and it’s based on the same HIV test that healthcare professionals have used since 2004.

Here’s how it works:

Testing: What Are Risk Events?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend being tested at least once a year if you do things that can transmit (spread) HIV infection. These things, or risk events, include:

* Injecting drugs or steroids with used injection equipment;
* Having sex for money or drugs;
* Having sex with an HIV infected person;
* Having more than 1 sex partner since your last HIV test; or
* Having a sex partner who has had other sex partners since your last HIV test.

How often you get an HIV test depends on your circumstances. If you have never been tested for HIV, you should be tested.

If you’ve been tested for HIV and your result is negative, but you continue to do things that put you at risk you should get tested again in 3 months.

How to Properly Read Your Test Results

After 20 minutes, here is what you should look on your OraQuick test:


If there’s one line next to the “C” and no line next to the “T,” your result is negative.

If your test result is negative and you engage in activities that put you at risk for HIV, you should test regularly.

If there are two lines, one next to the “C” and any line next to the “T”—even a faint line—you may have HIV.

If your OraQuick In-Home HIV Test is positive, you will need a second test to confirm your test result. Please see your doctor or a local clinic to obtain a follow up test in a medical setting. A doctor, clinic or healthcare professional must…
