Have you ever noticed that in movies you never see couples cleaning up after sex?

Usually this romantic moment has no clean up afterwards. The couple cuddles together as they basks in the afterglow of an amazing sexual moment together.

Seems odd…

As long as we have been making love, cleaning up after sex has always been a part of the our sexual intimacy.

Throughout your marriage cleaning up after sex can be impacted by your current form of birth control, are you trying to conceive a child, or even where you are making love. 

Some factors may be:

  • Are you using condoms?
  • Are you trying to make a baby or not trying to make a baby?
  • Are you in a hotel? One with two beds so that one is for sex and one for sleeping?
  • Are your sheets clean?


After you finish making love you want to cuddle and yet, in the back of your mind you’re thinking about fluids going all over the place.

The romance and intensity of what you have just experienced can be diminished by the time you finish cleaning up after sex.

This can change what was such a powerful moment.

We’ve been there ourselves many of times and have a few ways that you can get the most out of your time together after cleaning up.

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about maintaining the delicate balance between romance and cleaning up after sex.
