Shot In The Dark… Post Sex

This has no relevance to my personal life, but I’ve always wondered…

What do people do when sex is over? Especially if it was with a random (Yes. Anyone you have sex with that isn’t your boyfriend/girlfriend is a random.)

People have sex to get their rocks off (sorry for the bluntness). To bask in the chemical rush that comes post-coitus. However, when the erections disappear and our Neanderthal brains stop screaming “must have sex now,” what happens?

What do you do? Laugh? Put your clothes on, stuff your bra in your purse and skidaddle? Well I googled it (Yes. I google everything.) and I found a cute article answering my question. Check it out!

Other options from Ness at College Candy:

Clean up: Albeit not the most romantic thing, the post-sex cleanup is definitely a must. Either do the half-naked walk to the washroom, or, for even more convenience, keep a box of Kleenex or a roll of toilet paper beside the bed. After that little task is complete, everything is fair game.

Eat: Hey, you worked hard! Making some kind of treat together (cookies, anyone?) leads to a full tummy and a somewhat cute way to spend some time together. If you’d really just like to stay in bed (perhaps naked), ice cream is a personal favorite. Yum!

Go out: There’s nothing better than that post-sex glow, so why not take advantage of it? Get dressed up and go for dinner, or go out for a walk. Don’t forget your “guess what we just did” smile.

Watch a movie: OK, so maybe there is one thing better than the after-sex glow: curling up on the couch with a good movie. Not only is it a great time to get your cuddle on,  but also – who doesn’t love a good movie?

Pillow talk: I heard somewhere that a man is most like himself right after sex. While I don’t know if that’s true, I do know that some of my favorite relationship-deepening conversations I’ve had have happened while in bed.

Smoke: As much as I can’t morally encourage you to smoke, many people choose to light up post-coitus. According to my roommate, it “calms your heart rate.” But, I’ll let you figure that out for yourself.

Go to sleep: I know, I know, it’s cliché. But those sexy chemicals can make anyone tired. Have a nice little spoon sesh and call it a night.

Funny right? I know.

What do you do?
