What do most people say or do after sex? Is it sexy, or completely the opposite? Many times it’s really unsexy, and could lead to a strong disconnection. There's a funny hashtag on Twitter, #ThingsISayAfterSex, which offers some good examples of the unsexy things that people say ("Where's the remote?"). And what do many people DO after sex? It could be quickly falling asleep, cleaning up, or checking their phone! I discuss these topics, as well as why men are more likely to fall asleep*, and what to do if this is a problem in your relationship, with Clint August on San Diego Living.

(*Unfortunately I didn't get to mention the point that one of the reasons men might be more likely to fall asleep after sex is because they are more likely to have an orgasm, and also because their bodies tend to return to a pre-aroused state more quickly than women's bodies.)
