Sex is an important part of a couple’s relationship but the lovemaking doesn’t necessarily have to end in an orgasm.
Sex usually begins with foreplay and even though you might have had a great lovemaking session, snoozing off right after sex is not a great idea. Lovemaking takes a lot of energy for the both of you, but falling asleep right away is a big turnoff, if not insulting.
Scientifically, the brief moment after sex is crucial, because it brings you closer to your partner and strengthens the relationship.
Forget sleep, there’s much to do after sex
The common practice of sleeping or lighting a cigarette after sex is much overrated. Couples in love have the world to themselves and conquering each other through orgasms is only just the beginning. No, you don’t even have to go out to enjoy some relaxing after sex with your partner. The home can be your kingdom and you two the rulers. So what can you do after sex, apart from cuddling, spooning and snuggling? Here is a short list you could complete with your partner after a juicy session of perspiration and racing heartbeats.
1. Shower after sex
Taking a shower after sex prolongs the feeling of closeness to your partner. After a hot, steamy session of lovemaking, make your way to the bathroom (hand-in-hand) and take a romantic shower together.
2. Pillow talk
Post-coital talk opens up areas of conversation where you have never ventured before.
Grab this moment to tell him/her how good the sex was, what drove you crazy and what peaked your climax.
If you are in a serious relationship, this might just be the right moment to indulge in a conversation about your relationship. You can share stories about your childhood dramas and matter of importance that you want your partner to know. Couples in a serious relationship often open up and talk till late and find that connection with each other. This brings you closer as a couple.
If you have been together for long, and know absolutely every little thing about one another, you can lie down, cuddle and whisper sweet things to each other.

3. Grab a drink and some food
Sex can be tiring and great sex can leave you exhausted. So instead of just lying there, you could bring your partner a glass of water. This is a sweet gesture on your part which tells that you are the one who exhausts and replenishes them.
Sex takes up a lot of energy. So fill up on those calories by ordering some food. Refuelling for Round 2 maybe?
4. Watch a movie together
Nothing can beat watching your favourite movie with your partner, after sex, under the covers, with no undies on. Personally, this is the sweetest thing that a couple can possibly do after sex. Open a bag of chips, settle yourselves on the couch and cuddle naked under one blanket.

5. Kiss some more
While you had your share of lip-biting and scratching and hair-pulling during your love-making session, after sex might be the right time to smother your partner with feathery kisses all over. Not the sexy breathless ones, but just sweet kisses which show how much you mean to each other.
Just lie there, looking at each other and say everything with your kisses.
