If you are to make love, do it loyally

Just a tip for the younger generation here: go slow if you want enjoy the journey. Why i say this? It is because the newer generation is more propelled by Quickies.

A lot of new tv shows show students having quick sex in classrooms, dorms and bathrooms. WOrse, the new gen viewers consider this to be the true form of sex - do it quick. Unfortunately, this mentality of their gets deep rooted even after they get married. Most guys do not even know how to have sex for at least 10 mins.

Guys, save yourself. Learn to have sex properly. Go slow. Slowly build up the sexual tension before pushing it in. This wil not only raise your partner's sexual temper but also help you last long in bed. And, please, save those quickies for EMERGENCY SITUATIONS only!
