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.
Zimbawe’s doctor goes missing after masterminding strike
Fearless Zimbabwe’s minister of health has called on the government to address insecurity lapses that has lead to the disappearance Peter Magombeyi, the head of a doctor’s union, who disappeared on Saturday.
Fears are rising over the fate of Zimbabwe medical doctor Dr Peter Magombeyi after he sent a message to say he had been abducted in that country by unknown persons – apparently for demanding a “living wage”.
An AFP report earlier on Sunday quoted the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctor’s Association (ZHDA) as saying Magombeyi had not been heard from since he sent a WhatsApp message on Saturday night saying he had been “kidnapped by three men”.
Zimbabwe doctors, who earn a miserly equivalent of about R3 000 are on strike to press for better wages, equipment and medicines in state hospitals.
The ZHDA has reportedly accused state security forces of abducting the doctor because of his role in organising work stoppages.
This week some doctors said the death of deposed Robert Mugabe, 95, in a Singapore hospital on 6 September was an indication of how bad health services in Zimbabwe
“Dr Magombeyi’s crime is only to ask for a living wage for his profession. This is a reflection of the troubles born out of refusal to implement Political Reforms.”
The Zimbabwe government led by Emmerson Mnangagwa has not publicly commented on the doctor’s disappearance
Turkey: Group calls for immediate action against Femicide
Emine Dirican, a beautician from Istanbul, tried to be a good wife. But her husband hated that she worked, that she socialized, even that she wanted to leave the house sometimes without him.
She tried to reason with him. He lashed out.
“One time, he tied me — my hands, my legs from the back, like you do to animals,” recalls Dirican, shuddering. “He beat me with a belt and said, ‘You’re going to listen to me, you’re going to obey whatever I say to you.’ “
She left him and moved in with her parents. In January, he showed up, full of remorse and insisting he had changed. She let him in.
In her mother’s kitchen, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her to the floor and pulled out a gun.
“He shot me,” she says. “Then he went back to my mom and he pulled the trigger again, but the gun was stuck. So he hit her head with the back of the gun.”
Her father, who was in another room in the house, heard the gunshots and ran over. Dirican almost bled to death after a bullet ripped through a main artery in one of her legs.
“I was telling my father, ‘Daddy, please, I don’t want to die.’ “
Femicide — killing women because of their gender — is a longstanding issue in Turkey. Nearly 300 women have been killed so far this year, according to the Istanbul-based advocacy group We Will Stop Femicide, which has been tracking gender-related deaths since Turkish authorities stopped doing so in 2009.
