not DIRECTLY after no....but a shower yes

Neanderthal, Sunday, 31 July 2011 15:52 (ten years ago) link

HOW INDIRECTLY?

tw1zt3d p0llst4rt3r 2, Sunday, 31 July 2011 16:14 (ten years ago) link

okay, no

Neanderthal, Sunday, 31 July 2011 16:15 (ten years ago) link

getting too far away from accepting & embracing that sex is generally kinda sweaty is a negative, imo. it isn't like coming home from work and wanting to get the funk off and feel clean; it's the kind of remnant feeling you should be okay with, i think, with there being no need to starkly delineate it happening and then you being all clean.

it's exactly like working under a car

Much more concerned about being clean before than after.

i don't understand why people would not do this, you can get infections and diseases!!!

also after sex co-shower can be pretty fun imho \(o_O)/

You can't sleep and wash up at the same time

fwiw I just search out a bottle of mouthwash and dip my genitals in it

Is it really that bad to just take a shower after I've woken up?
ILX makes me feel like a bad person sometimes.

I just.... you must hate having sex...

It's fucking great to be locked together and eventually fall asleep after, with the atmosphere, bodily fluids, heat, love, all still there in between youse. Screw thinking it is "wrong" or "dirty".

are we talking UTI - uhh, other than that, what kind of infections or diseases?

homosexual II, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 01:01 (ten years ago) link

Yeah I don't really think that line thinking is correct. It's a good idea for girls to pee after if they're prone to UTIs but other than that there's no reason to get up and wash immediately afterwards as far as I know.

It reduces possibility of like HPV and herpes a little, but imo if that's a bridge you're crossing regularly then you provably have it in a routine and it's not what most people do.

mh, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 01:10 (ten years ago) link

I mean, in my experience.

Also if your junk looks like a murder scene due to circumstances it kind of makes some sense? I dunno, that is kind of an outlier too

mh, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 01:11 (ten years ago) link

Like period sex? Well yeah but that's a whole other story imo

i'm willing to have my junk washed after sex, but it seems rude to demand it

I just.... you must hate having sex...

that's a ridiculous assertion! That's like saying, "You must take no joy in eating, since you don't like food that is moldy."

sarahel, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 01:53 (ten years ago) link

it takes quite a bit of time for things to get 'mouldy' i'd imagine?

ie I don't think the question is 'do you ever wash your junk'

CH3C(O)N(CH3)2 (darraghmac), Tuesday, 2 August 2011 01:57 (ten years ago) link

Yeah feeling "ew must clean up" the moment yr done seems a bit dispiriting to me (going to toilet aside).

Rameses Street (Trayce), Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:00 (ten years ago) link

depending on the circumstances, an over-ripe odor can happen pretty quickly

sarahel, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:01 (ten years ago) link

sarahel i agree w/ u for once. sometimes it smells like penguins after sex, and ain't no cure but a washin' up

remy bean, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:06 (ten years ago) link

hence the need for more poll options detailing what kind of sex necessitates post-sex showers

like I'll usually wash up if I just took a facial but if all I did was a little shrimping I don't see the need to get all over-meticulous about things

feel a need to just auto-redact this post on the one hand, and to stand by it on the other

no point in drawing that line if you refuse to cross it

mookieproof, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:13 (ten years ago) link

Am I alone in thinkin if yr junk smells bad or unpleasant enough to want to shower it off after sex, maybe you need to be seeing a doctor?

Rameses Street (Trayce), Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:15 (ten years ago) link

I think the proper analogy is, after eating a 9 course meal with lobster, steak, a vanilla sundae topped off with apple pie, do you brush your teeth before you go to bed?

mh, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:25 (ten years ago) link

so do all you people voting "no" only have sex before sleep?

sarahel, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:34 (ten years ago) link

Well, there's no shower in my car

mh, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:36 (ten years ago) link

Heh.

Rameses Street (Trayce), Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:36 (ten years ago) link

Actully in my case I'd say "about 70% of the time yeah".

Rameses Street (Trayce), Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:37 (ten years ago) link

But hang on we're not talking about "eventual showering" here, right?

We're talking about "finish the deed and immediately go rinse yer things off". Which is ... nuts.

Rameses Street (Trayce), Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:38 (ten years ago) link

Oh man one time when I was drunk and had been out at a bbq place I thought it'd be hilarious to put a bunch of those little hand wipes from the bbq place in my nightstand next to condoms. Of course, I only remembered when I went to grab a condom and pulled out ye olde moistened hand towel and just about cracked up

mh, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:38 (ten years ago) link

Which only brings the question: does wiping your junk off with a bbq wipe count as "washing"

mh, Tuesday, 2 August 2011 02:39 (ten years ago) link

It's fucking great to be locked together and eventually fall asleep after, with the atmosphere, bodily fluids, heat, love, all still there in between youse. Screw thinking it is "wrong" or "dirty".

xpost this is basically how i break it down to an extent.

one of the best things about sex is curling up/cuddling with the other person afterwards, which you can't do if you immediately get up to wash yer crotch. likewise if you get up to use the shower, they may follow you in, and then it might lead to more sexual activity which ISN'T necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes when it's 4 a.m. you just wanna go to fuckin' sleep and your loins are worn out!

like i don't think anybody here is growing mushrooms on their sack, I usually shower the next morning and give a lil scrubdown and all is well in Whoville.

Me Three.

I knew of a lady who liked morning sex and would get dressed afterward, occasional secretions still leaking down her legs beneath her skirt or slacks. She told me it reminded her of the prior night's (or morning's) lovemaking so she liked it. I liked her attitude.

I voted male/don't wash, but most of my experience has been with condoms which inherently make matters much tidier.

Lee626, Friday, 12 August 2011 11:45 (ten years ago) link

that's worse, you smell like latex then and that's pretty unmistakable

i kind of like that there's an implied solitary dimension, almost like a what these hands hath wrought period of lone reflection outside of the room

also i would always wash up after cuddling if i wasn't wearing protection

I love post-coital showering too - except I sometimes get the urge to go at it again once we're clean and have walked back to the bedroom and dropped the towel(s). Now we're "dirty" again and need another shower....

otm, afterwards I go out to the back and stand on a bare concrete slab and she turns the hose on me and yells a lot, it's good times

yeah we're saving up for a pit but until then it's the slab

Interesting that so many people enjoy marinating in their own spunk or drawing out the sacred act of lovemaking into a ritual cleansing ceremony. Most times I either fall asleep or get the hell out of there

speaking of pastrami-flavored contraceptives, I ripped open a condom package a couple of weeks ago that smelled like peanut butter.
