What his post-sex actions say about your relationship

Gena Kaufman of Glamour Magazine tries to decipher what your man’s actions after sex means.

Today in science that is also adorable, new research shows that couples who cuddle together after sex report higher levels of satisfaction, both in terms of sex and their relationships overall. Awww. As if we needed one more reason to snuggle up after getting sweaty. (We didn’t, but we’ll take it anyway.)

But not everyone likes a good cuddle after sex, and that’s OK. Here are a few other actions your guy (and/or you!) might like to take post-coitus and what it means for your relationship….


#He falls asleep. It’s not the most romantic thing in the world, but it’s totally fine.

#He gets really chatty. This could be annoying if you’re in the “fall asleep” camp yourself, but it’s cute if he wants to keep getting even closer to you after hitting the sheets.

#He needs a snack. Consider it a compliment that he’s putting so much effort into his bedroom behavior that he needs to refuel.

#He turns on the TV. I suppose this depends on what he’s watching.

#He needs to take a shame shower. He has issues and is also a onetime character from Sex and the City.

#He starts a pillow fight. He is the only-in-movies version of a teenage girl.

#He calls his mom. Run! Run away from the weirdness!

#He immediately leaves. Bad manners, buddy.


#He brings you a glass of water or fixes you a drink. Marry this thoughtful man immediately, or send him my way, please.

What does your guy do after sex? What’s your preference?
