The Five Types of Sex

by | Sensual Intimacy

May 16, 2024

In this article, we explore the 5 types of sex you may likely have at least once (or rather often) in your relationship.

1. Make up sex

Make up sex is going to be intense and wild. And it is going to carry a lot of emotions. 

It’s going to happen after a breakup, a major fight, or a minor fight. 

Make up sex is usually the sex that tells you that your issues have come to end. It is the “Hey, I am not angry anymore” sex. 

Have make up sex someplace quiet and comfortable and be sure to express all your emotions just right. 

2. Explorative sex

This is the sex for explorers. You and your partner will experience this when you both become more open to the idea that sex should be explored. 

It usually happens after a very sexual movie, or after you both have read a very sexual book—or when you both have come to talk about your kinks. 

During explorative sex, you both explore kinks and feel deep desires. 

Have explorative sex with an open mind. The rule of the thumb is: nothing is too nasty except what you say is. 

Keep your options open and be ready to experiment just about anything, and feel just about any emotion.

3. Spontaneous sex

This is sex that happens spontaneously. It is one that carries so much intensity, since there is usually no plan between either of the couples to have sex. 

It will usually happen after a period of spending time together following much unavailability. Let’s say: in times when one partner returns from a long travel after weeks or months. 

It is the unpredictable nature of this sex that makes it great. 

It is very thrilling too. The way one comes to love and adore their partner’s body. 

The best way to enjoy spontaneous sex is to let yourself go; to allow yourself be in the moment, loving every minute of the sexual encounter. 

4. Leisure sex

This is sex for relaxation. The type of sex couples have when they want to feel themselves and be at ease. 

It is the type of sex one has in their hotel during a travel trip. 

Or the type one has during their honey moon. It is calm and beautiful and just outright perfect. 

Leisure sex is recommended every now and then, to be shared between couples in moments that are memorial. 

Say, an anniversary—or a travel. Or any other special occasion. 

It should have its place in the sex lives of any couple.

5. Quickie

A quickie is a quick sex that doesn’t last as long as fifteen minutes in most cases. 

Most quickies will last around 2 – 10 minutes and may have one experiencing multiple orgasms. 

Quickies are that great because they’re thrilling and promise one a range of emotions. 

A quickie should happen as often as possible, especially amongst couples who are very busy. 


Couples should experience the five types of sex from time to time.
