This is actually a standard right? Cuddling and spooning after sex is one of the biggest ways to let your woman or even your man to know that you love them and that you two are better connected now. It's much better than just simply turning over and falling asleep right?



One of the biggest things to do after sex is talk. You don't have to talk about the sex, heck, you don't even have to talk about anything really, just speaking to each other can rekindle the flame and even improve your communication. Why not talk about some of the fantasies that you might have or even talk about your future. It's a great time to bring up important – but still light-hearted topics!



Reconnecting can happen in any number of ways. It can happen through talking, through touching and even just through cuddling, but the reconnecting that I am talking about is just laying there, staring at one another, maybe whispering little secrets or sharing confessions. This is the time that intimacy is at it's highest!


Touch One Another

When you're having sex, you are obviously touching, but one of the things to do after sex could be just small, subtle teasing little touches. A light touch to your man's arm, a touch to his hand, a touch through his hair. It'll all awaken the senses again and who knows where that can lead you!


Discuss Future Plans

Talking is a big part of reconnecting and after sex, you want to make sure that you are reconnecting with your partner. Discussing things like your future is super important! Maybe you could talk about your hopes and dreams and what you think you might want to do in the future.

You can tell secrets and jokes and even talk about some of the things that you did. Laugh it all off! It'll make you closer and feel better about not being so serious!

I feel like some of these are something you just see in romantic comedies. I've been in a relationship for six years and our sex life is still awesome, and we don't do any of those... things I can't see us talking about future plans after we get finished, or just talking.. how about just cuddling and going to sleep? I feel like that's enough.. because when you're in a long relationship the cuddle stage gets old and you just want to sleep... so after sex it's nice just to cuddle and fall asleep. You're already happy so why make jokes? Or talk about serious things... If you're in a relationship you do that already through the week..

I thing touching one another is so nice.

Does those things really work for a couple? I wish. ;)

yeah. sleep. or shower. but don't talk - definitely don't talk about the future! just enjoy each other's presence. after an orgasm, you get a wicked rush of endorphins leaving your emotions bare. talking after sex is about as legitimate as talking on your way to having sex - you're not thinking with your brain. careful!

Bubble bath should be on here! ;)

what about sleeping? :)

I am a teen, and I am just wondering, does sex come naturally or is it hard the first time but you get used to it kinda thing? I don't want to have sex (gosh no!) I'm just wondering

We just tangle together and cuddle :3
