Cuddling RIGHT after sex. Unrealistic? (maybe TMI)

You ever notice how in movies and TV shows, after a couple is done having sex, they just roll off of each other and cuddle or just lay there or even get right up and put clothes on?

Is it just me that feels the need to do a little cleaning up afterward? (Since I've been pregnant, sex is even messier than usual. Lol.)
My BF and I always have something nearby to wipe off with, whether it's tissues or a designated "sex towel" (haaaa)
And Usually I take a trip to the bathroom to let myself "drain" out in the toilet, rather than let myself leak on the bed. LOL. (mind you, this is condom-less sex)

Am I the only one that cleans/wipes off, or do you usually just roll over and you're done, mess free, like in the movies?

  • lol i do the same thing!!!! I immediately get up and "drain" lol. Movies are so ridiculous with some of the crap they show. My favorite is how women go into labor in movies!! as if it happens in one instant! But you are not alone on this one!

  • Sometimes we cuddle for 5 mins or so, until I say "uh-oh" cause I feel leaking, then it is a scramble to find the towel and get cleaned up before it reaches the bed, lol, but usually no cuddling till after cleanup is done.

  • Doesn't every one have (sex towels),,,I do. I always get up and go pee after sex and clean up. I never understood how these TV people could have sex and just throw there cloths back on and go back to work or some thing.. I would have wet, stinky undies.

  • You're not alone. We have our cum towel that we keep handy and then like you I always have to go to the bathroom. Didn't used to be that way though. Before kids we'd have sex all the time and just lay around in each others arms afterwards.

  • I'm all about cleaning up after wards. We use baby wipes to clean up and then I go into the bathroom, drain myself and then put a pantyliner or thin pad on.
    Besides, I'm way too hot after sex to cuddle. Forget that, give me my space and let me sleep.
