So you’ve just done the deed, maybe it was a passionate union with your partner after a romantic evening spent together, or maybe it was more of a good, hard, quick ‘n’ dirty banging with the guy you hook up with from time to time – whatever – what to do now?
After you’ve both caught your breath again and maybe cuddled and nuzzled each other a little more, it’s time to get off the bed/couch/kitchen bench or wherever else your passions may have lead you, and get on with your day. There’s often a lot of lead-up to actually doing the deed, but what post-coital rituals do you do afterwards, and do other women do the same?
Let’s see. Here are 10 things all women do after sex but never talk about.
1. Guzzle water
You’re parched after all that vigorous love-making, so you’ll really feel the need to re-hydrate. Plus, drinking a lot of water will help you flush your system to avoid a Urinary Tract Infection.
2. Cut cuddling short to go and pee
Every smart, sensible woman knows she NEEDS to go and pee after having sex. To reiterate the first point – it helps flush out bacteria preventing anything nasty like a UTI (Urinary tract infection).
3. Check the time
She’s probably curious how long you guys lasted in bed, plus it helps her check back in with reality after your portion of time spent elsewhere in bliss.
4. Do the old clothes treasure hunt
Your bra’s probably under the bed, your top has been flung halfway across the room and for Pete’s sake where did your socks end up in your moment of passion?
5. Have a sneaky look at the condom
Even if she’s rigorous with taking the pill, you should both still check your backup protection held up and did its job properly.
6. Clean up down there
Maybe all you’ve got at your disposal is just some toilet paper, but ideally you want to have a shower or wipe down with non-scented soap and water. Just remember not to try and clean in there – the power of the female genitalia does that on its own.
7. Maybe even go commando afterwards
Especially if you’re feeling a little sensitive, it can feel real nice after getting fresh and clean to air your lady parts out a little too. If that’s not your style, you might go for cotton undies and loose PJs for prime air circulation. It’ll stop bacteria growing as well.
8. Check yourself out in the mirror
Seeing your crazy sex-hair and your gorgeous naked bod that’s just been tended to very well indeed are enough to make you feel a weird sense of pride (and the hair may be so wild it’ll make you laugh). In private, you might also check your lady parts to make sure everything looks good down there too.
9. Feel a little emotional
I mean, people don’t just break down and cry after sex, but it’s normal to feel a little more affectionate or even vulnerable after opening yourself up to someone as you just did.
10. Think about washing your sheets
You know there’s nothing better than sleeping in clean, fresh sheets. But then again, your hot date is coming over again on the weekend… so you’ll probably just open the window and let everything air out naturally. Just do it next time.
More than 70 million displaced worldwide, says UNHCR
The number of people fleeing war, persecution and conflict exceeded 70 million globally last year – the highest number in the UN refugee agency’s almost 70 years.

The almost 70.8 million people forcibly displaced is up 2.3 million on the previous year, according to the agency’s annual Global Trends report.
This is also double the level recorded 20 years ago.
The number averaged out to 37,000 new displacements every day.
“What we are seeing in these figures is further confirmation of a longer-term rising trend in the number of people needing safety from war, conflict and persecution,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi.
“While language around refugees and migrants is often divisive, we are also witnessing an outpouring of generosity and solidarity, especially by communities who are themselves hosting large numbers of refugees.
The actual figure is likely to be higher as the Venezuela crisis is only partly reflected, the report states.
Around four million Venezuelans have fled their country, according to some figures from countries taking them in, making it one of the world’s biggest recent displacement crises.
The report identifies three main groups.
Firstly, there are refugees, or people forced to leave their country because of conflict, war or persecution. In 2018, the number of refugees reached 25.9 million worldwide, 500,000 more than in 2017. Included in this total are 5.5 million Palestine refugees.
The second group is 3.5 million asylum seekers. These are people outside their country of birth who are under international protection, but are yet to be granted refugee status.
Thirdly, there are internally displaced persons, or IDPs. These people are displaced within their country and amount to 41.3 million globally.
More than two thirds of all refugees worldwide came from Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia.
Syria had a considerably higher number than any other country with 6.7 million, followed by Afghanistan with 2.7 million.
Only 92,400 refugees were resettled in 2018, fewer than 7% of those awaiting resettlement.
The global population of forcibly displaced people has grown substantially from 43.3 million in 2009. Most of this increase was between 2012 and 2015 as a result of the Syrian conflict.
However, other conflicts have cropped up and continued across the globe, for example, in Iraq and Yemen in the Middle East, as well as parts of sub-Saharan Africa such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.
The massive flow of Rohingya refugees to Bangladesh at the end of 2017 after they were driven out of Myanmar’s Rakhine state during military crackdowns was another major crisis.
At more than 1.5 million, Ethiopians were the largest newly displaced population in 2018, 98% of them internally, more than doubling the previous number.
These were mainly attributed to inter-communal violence throughout 2018, with communities living along disputed boundaries most affected.
