The cliche "hard-and-fast solution," as in "American energy independence offers no hard-and-fast solutions," upon mishearing becomes a Pornality (q.v.) and figures into the more risque examples below:
"Liz, I've been drinking too much, there isn't going to be any harden-fast solution in bed tonight."
"Uncle Joe, I'm sorry your love life is on the skids but if you're looking for a harden-fast solution there's always Viagra."
Thom -- "Quick-setting concrete for your breezeway! That can be your harden-fast solution!" Timm -- "Don't talk dirty."
Using a quick fix to deal with a problem temporarily, only to have it re-emerge later. It is a fundamental cornerstone of modern society.

There may be day-to-day commitments that prevent you from having sex as often as you use to. Or, maybe at the end of the day, you or your partner are just too tired from working and looking after the kids to get involved in an hour-long lovemaking session. A quickie is a great way to still get some sexual satisfaction, without having to devote too much time or energy!
Now, while quickies are a great way to get pleasure and keep the fire of love alive, it is not advised to ONLY have quickies. A loving, healthy relationship demands balance. Having an occasional quickie can demonstrate there is still passion in the relationship. However, making love (the romantic kind!) and taking the time to satisfy and thoroughly enjoy each other, is necessary for strengthening intimacy.
Just as long as it is mutually agreed upon (i.e. both of you know in advance that it’s going to be short and sweet), quickies are great way to...
