Let’s be honest — “usually, there’s some clean-up to do as part of that post-coital ritual,” says Siegel. You should offer your partner a towel and give them the opportunity to clean themselves off before you do so yourself. The towel can then be used to cover up the telltale “wet spot” — you know, the one that results literally every time you have sex, but no one ever talks about — so no one has to move to the edge of the bed or have a damp night’s sleep.
“That little gesture can make a huge impact,” says Siegel. “Bring a towel. It’s just another one of those moments that says, ‘See, I care,’” says Siegel.
