You were great in bed - as evidenced by the fact that he's been lying there, repeatedly mumbling "Wow" since you finished. But it's no time to rest on your laurels. Fact is, your after-sex behaviour makes a major impression.
Even if he didn't quite make your toes curl this time, tell him you appreciate all his, uh, hard work. Plus, offering up specifics-like how good it felt when he lifted you up against the wall-will pump his confidence and ensure that he gives you a repeat performance of the things you like best next time.
Put on his shirt
"There is nothing sexier than a girl who's willing to walk around half-dressed," says Wayne, 30. "If she's half-dressed in my clothes, even better." So throw on his shirt or get into his boxers. Once he sees his clothing barely concealing your naughty bits, he'll immediately start drooling at the thought of undressing you all over again.
Offer him a drink
No, not booze - although that's an intriguing idea. Instead, ask if he'd like a glass of water when you get up to grab one yourself. "After the first time I slept with my girlfriend, she left the room and came back with two glasses of water," says Mike, 27. "Usually, I make sure the girl is okay after sex, so it was nice to be taken care of for a change."
If a new guy doesn't see an end to all the togetherness and bed-talk - he can start to feel trapped. "I can't help but worry after sex whether I'm expected to act like a serious boyfriend," says Steve, 30. "So a girl who mentions a need to leave at some point puts my mind at ease." Whether it's 10 minutes later or the morning after, it's better if it's made clear that you have other things to do... And leave him wanting more
GUYS SPEAK OUT
"Things that ruin the moment"
"I would not be happy if a girl walked around my apartment naked after sex-I have two roommates."
- Brian Wrensen
"It would definitely be a turn-off if the girl had terrible breath or if some other part of her body didn't smell good."
- Evan Allen
"If she ran to the bathroom right afterward and drunkenly vomited-although I'd enjoy watching her run without any clothes on."
- Phillip Ince
"Once a girl joked about the fact that I'd lasted only 30 seconds. That hit hard-even though I hadn't wanted to last longer."
- Byron Salazar
