Making love is tricky business - not in the sense that you should trick people into being with you, but it's just that there are so many unwritten rules, that it is kind of hard to follow them - especially as a guy, since we are usually a bit slower in taking on social cues. I imagine this is a hundred times more difficult for someone with Asperger's (a high-functioning form of Autism) - those people are usually very smart, but have extreme difficulties understanding that is going on, or what kind of behavior is expected from them.
Don't Sleep Separately After Sex
Guys usually just want to sleep after having sex, but girls could be ready for another round after even 10-20 minutes. Try to sync your sleeping schedules, as if one of you isn't happy with the night's intimacy session - it could be bad for your relationship.
Leaving Instantly After Sex
This one is horrible - imagine getting up, and leaving the bed or room after making love with your partner. It is a terrible look, and it does look kind of cold/distant if you look at it from another angle. So try not to do this to your partner.
Taking Selfies During the Act
Selfies have been all the range for the past 5 years or so. They are gaining so much popularity that people have even started taking them while making out or being intimate. Don't be one of those people - especially if your partner is not ready for that kind of photography.
Using Your Phone While Being Together
This one is a lot worse than it sounds - and it isn't just bad if it's done during sex - it is bad for ANY occasion if you're out with another human being. Being on the phone is a solo activity, and it should be done if you aren't with other people.
Working After Sex
To be more precise, I'm not talking just about heading to work or doing the work on your laptop - studying could just be as bad if done immediately after the sex is over with. Do some cuddling and playing around after the party is over, THEN go to work or study - it'll be much better for both of you.
Sleeping After Sex
This is not the same as my first point - about syncing your sleeping schedules. What I'm talking about here is about those people that sleep immediately after sex - especially the guy. In some cases, they can't help it, because that's how a man's body works after orgasm, but at least they could try.
Going to the Kitchen
Just because sex is over, doesn't mean you have to skip the cuddling and fooling around. If you do get hungry after sex, at least invite your partner to the kitchen, or ask if they want something, so you can eat together, instead of doing it separately.
Watching TV or Reading
I know reading is a good activity, and it does make you smarter. This doesn't give you an excuse to skip bonding with your partner after making love together. Be together for like 30-60 minutes after sex, THEN think about reading or watching something on the TV.
Don't Rush Out to the Bathroom
According to Jennifer Bump, MD, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, peeing after sex could increase your risk of getting a urinary tract infection - also called "UTI." Stay with your partner for a bit after orgasm, and you'll be all set.
Drinking Too Much
If you drink too much before sex, the whole act may be much more unsatisfying. According to a recent study, 11% of alcohol drinkers reported having problems reaching orgasm on the nights where they have drunk too much - so watch out!
Avoid Raising Your Pelvis Unless You Want to Conceive
According to researchers, elevating your Pelvis while keeping your back lower, increases the chances of conceiving a baby. This may be a good or bad thing depending on your intentions for the next 9 months, but it is nice to keep in mind.
Don't Have Sex Before Taking a Shower
If your partner is uncircumstanced (as most guys aren't), ask him to have a pre-sex shower. This will dramatically lower the chances of catching an ugly UTI (urinary tract infection), which could take many months of treatments to get rid of.
Don't Have a Big Dinner
This one doesn't probably need an explanation, but I will do one just in case someone hasn't noticed the OBVIOUS correlation - eating a lot before sex could have disastrous effects on the "quality" of the intimacy - I mean, who can exercise (which is what sex basically is) on a full stomach?
Clean the Toys After You Are Done Using Them
Just because you have "finished," doesn't mean the toys are ready to be put away. Always remember to clean the sex toys thoroughly after you are done using, in order to protect yourself and your partner from unwanted diseases and infections.
Don't Use a Menthol-Based Lubricant
Here is something I didn't know - if you are going to go that route and use a lubricant, don't buy one that is based on menthol. These are often called "stimulating lubricants" and can be quite irritating to some partners - especially for women around menopause.
