Bad After-Sex Etiquette Alert!
A lot of guys have it!
Even straight guys!
According to a new book called The Little Black Book of Big Red Flags:
"How a guy treats you right after sex can be just as important as how he treats you during it.
"Turning on SportsCenter, checking his e-mail, or simply saying something irrelevant, like 'I think I'm going to buy a water purifier,' after he was just inside you, is off-putting to say the least."
It's so true!
The moments immediately after sex are a sensitive time, a delicate window of opportunity during which all that acceptance should not suddenly turn into devastating rejection. Just because you came doesn't mean you can emotionally go!
The book even quotes a woman who remembers:
"'When it was time for bed, whether we'd been fighting or just had sex, my ex would stuff a pillow between us so that I couldn't touch him during the night.'"
Eek! Red flag? That's more like a banner filling the sky.
I'm staying solo, thank you.
Especially since most people don't like it when I postcoitally roll over and put the pillow on my head.
Anyone have their own bad after-sex etiquette stories to share?
