Sex on the Run or Fun and Awkward Moments for the Very Busy Couple
The people who say sex in marriage is boring have never had to squeeze sex into and between busy assignments. Intimacy for the harried does not need to be hurried, ideally. But in real life you have to negotiate your way around in-laws, children, guests, customers, and even your spouse's appointments.
Making love at the in-laws in the most silent ways might be the most difficult thing to do, but how about getting intimate in a Belgian motel room while wishing that your 9 year-old will not finish her bath and knock on the door leading into the shared suite. Making love on the run can be both exciting and demanding. You prefer to postpone it to a convenient time but...
This one is a real killjoy: Somewhere in the vicinity of the airport, you are too early for the flight in wee hours of the morning so you both decide on a rapturous goodbye. Time slips away and your beloved has to slip away before you ascend the peak.
Sex was not designed to be engaged in on the run, but a very busy couple must get creative in order to carve intimate moments on the modern treadmill. We fly together on business very often but I am not too keen on joining the mile-high club. I'm scared of flying. So instead of proposing a bathroom moment I distract myself with the available in-flight entertainment, or do puzzles.
A shipboard experience is right up my stream. So I have never forgiven her for arranging the one-day cruise to the Bahamas without booking a cabin. We made up for that with three days on the Nile aboard the Aurora.
