Forty-three-year-old *Fikile Ndlovu, who is originally from Maluti in the Eastern Cape, says her sex escape is when her kids visit her parents in the Eastern Cape during school holidays, because she says that's when she gets to have great sex with her husband.
Fikile has three kids aged 7, 9 and their eldest is 16.
"Sex with kids in the house is no fun, and yes there have been times when we stole a moment or two while they were out on play dates or at school, but it just isn't the same gratification as knowing they are kilometres away.
"My eldest daughter is the one who makes me the most nervous because she knows about sex and if she walked in on us or heard anything, we couldn't get away with any excuse.
"We get to go wild and have sex like when we started dating after I ship them away to my parents.
"They get to see their friends and enjoy time with their grandparents while we get to have the best sex ever without a chip on our shoulders."
*Thandi Mahlangu, a 28-year-old final-year law student in Johannesburg says she usually drives for more than eight hours to visit her long-distance lover, who stays in Amanzimtoti in KwaZulu-Natal. This, she says, is her sex escape.
"Long-distance love is not easy. But when it comes to the sex, I give it a thumbs up. We end up consumed in passion because we had missed each other so much, and every time we get together, it is like a wave of relief washes over us.
"I really don't mind the drive because the great sex that awaits me makes it worth my while. It is like drinking water after traversing through the desert for months," she says.
*Not their real names.
