You have probably heard in the past at least once or twice about how foreplay is a great way to get really intimate and aroused before sex. It’s the anticipation and the buildup that is involved in foreplay that makes for a more satisfying sexual experience. It’s like reading a great novel or watching a really well-done movie. You start off slow, you get to know the characters, you become invested in the situation, you go through the motions, you reach the climax, and then you finish things off with a proper ending. You always want to make sure that you are building up to that climax in a way that doesn’t deprive both of you of a proper experience.
But what happens after climax? What happens when you’re both done? Do you just get up and leave? No. A movie rarely ever ends right after the climax. There’s still the ending that you need to take care of. It can’t be so abrupt. You can’t finish on top. You need to find a way to slowly descend that mountain. And what exactly are you supposed to do after you’ve both finished in bed? Should that really be the end of it all? The answer is no. According to sex and relationship experts, the “post play” is just as important as the foreplay. Remember that having sex with your partner is the absolute pinnacle of physical intimacy.
You are never really as close to your partner on a physical level as you are when you’re having sex. So, it’s obvious that the immediate moments after sex can be opportunities for you to really build on that intimacy; a chance for you to really capitalize on that closeness. You need to always find ways to get closer and closer to your partner; and those moments after sex can be great for you if you know how what to do. You should never be content with just walking away from your partner right after having sex. You shouldn’t just be drifting off to dreamland so soon after climaxing.
You have to make sure that you make the most out of the very intimate and romantic situation that you are both in as a couple. And if you don’t know what to do exactly, then that’s what this article is for. You’ve come to the right place. You have lots to learn and so you have to make sure that you read everything up until the end. Here are 6 romantic thins you can do after having sex with your partner.
1. Take a bath together.
Sex can be really dirty – both literally and figuratively. You might be sweating a lot because of all the physical activity. And sometimes, some bodily fluids can escape you – and that can make a real mess. So why don’t you both go ahead and hop into the shower together for a quick rub and scrub. You never know; you might get a second round in the shower.
2. Do it again.
What’s stopping you from going for another round? Take some time to breathe and look into each other’s eyes. Start kissing one another and repeat the whole process again. Take it slowly. Go back to the foreplay stages and really take your time with one another. Go through the motions and be very meticulous about it. And when you’re ready, do everything exactly the same. Sex is one of those things that if it’s good once, it’s probably going to be just as good the second time around.
3. Cuddle and spoon.
Stay physical – but lower your energy levels. Physical intimacy doesn’t always have to revolve around having sex. Sometimes, you can get really intimate and romantic with one another by merely cuddling and spooning. That’s why this should always be a great go-to option after you’ve just had a rough and tiring session of sexual relations with your partner.
4. Talk about light-hearted topics.
Sex can be a very serious activity – especially for those who really have a tendency to take it seriously. Things can get really steamy and intense – and sometimes, that can be emotionally overwhelming. So you can both go ahead and lighten the mood by talking about silly and funny topics that can ease the tensions a little bit.
5. Look deep into each other’s eyes.
The eyes are the window to the soul, right? Well, sometimes, intimacy can be something as simple as just looking deep into the eyes of your partner. You both don’t even need to be saying anything. You can just be looking at each other’s eyes longingly – knowing full well that you’ve just connected in a very intimate manner.
6. Grab a bite to eat together.
Sex is tiring. You might have worked up an appetite. Go to the nearest diner or just whip something up in the kitchen so the both of you can refuel for a little bit. There’s something always so intimate about sharing a meal with someone else.
