6. Chat or cuddle
After you’ve washed, or maybe for a little while before you get up to do that, on an emotional level it can be really beneficial to just cuddle or talk with your partner. It’s a good time to tell your partner what you liked. However, Kristen Carpenter, director of women’s behavioral health at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s Women’s Sexual Health Clinic, suggests that conversations about things that didn’t go so well are better left until some time has passed. Researchers have found that post-sex affection and loving behavior contributes to higher relationship and sexual satisfaction in the long term.
