Do you touch your bride after sex? How you touch her after sex, and how much you touch her after sex, both say a lot to her about you: about how you feel about her. The worst-case scenario is the guy who is all touchy when he wants sex, but does not touch at all after sex. It’s not difficult to figure out the message that sends to a woman.
Ideally, you want to touch her more after sex than at any other time. Aside from sending a very positive message (I love you even when I am not looking for sex) it’s a great time to touch her because she should be physically and emotionally open to being touched. Because of this, she will benefit from the touch a great deal.
What kind of touch? It should not be overly sexual (or completely non-sexual, depending on the woman), but it should be intimate. Rubbing and/or scratching her back, stroking her legs, massaging her butt, and touching her face are all good. You know her body and where she likes to be touched, so do what makes her feel good.
Finally, please don’t use the “Sex makes me sleepy” excuse to not give your bride some post-sex touch. You can stay awake if you try, and frankly, she’s worth the effort.
