There is ONE thing we all should absolutely do after sex

There is seriously nothing better than rolling over and nodding off to sleep after you’ve had a bit of McLovin’. Sleepiness after sex is super common, not only because of the physicality of it all, but largely thanks to the cocktail of chemicals released in the brain after you get your rocks off.

There is, however, one very important thing you need to do before you close your eyes and enter the heavenly land of zzzzs… and that is to have a nice, long slash after a sesh. Annoying as it is, you’ve gotta drain out those pipes after anything has been inside your lady cave including, but not limited to: a peen, a finger, a tongue, a vibrator or whatever else you’re partial to.

The fact is, it doesn’t matter how clean your partner’s pork sword is or how perfectly sanitised your sex toys are, as soon as you introduce anything into your love box, there’s a chance that bacteria will crash your party – and by party, I mean your urethra and bladder. Bumping uglies can result in a transfer of bacteria from your anus into your vag (ewww), and even though I hear you shouting, “NO WAY man, I wipe my ass so well that I’d readily hand it up to Flume on a plate”, there’s still germs that hang out there. Like permanent residents. And if those germs get into your vajayjay, you’ve likely purchased a ticket to UTI-ville: the land of hot, burning piss that NO ONE wants to visit.

Peeing before and after (but more importantly after) sex is a simple way to lessen your chances of getting a UTI, as it aids in flushing out any bacteria before it gets a chance to set up camp in your bladder and wreak havoc on your entire week. If you don’t need to pee, have a glass or two of water to kick those water works into action.

You don’t need to skip that cuddle time and run out of the room like a bat out of hell, though. Just remember to water the flowers around 30 minutes after you’ve finished to help prevent the hell of a UTI.
