"Doing it rocks," he said. 

I looked over after a session of mediocre sex at my boyfriend who was flopped on his back grinning like a goon. 

"Did you just say... 'doing it rocks?'" 

A growing look of horror spread across his face. 

"Oh my God,"  he said. "I totally did."

Thankfully the "doing it" he had just enjoyed (that's sex, for us grown ups) was done with me, a person with an excellent sense of humor, even about stuff like my sex life. 

It was all we could both do to stop laughing before we urinated on each other, and while I'm kinky, golden showers are so not my thing. 

Talking after sex is one of those unique things that can bring you closer to your partner when it comes to intimacy. However, talking after sex is also one of those things can go so horribly off the rails that it ain't even funny. 

There's a reason for all this intensity when it comes to speaking to each other after you've just had sex. A recent study conducted by the University of Connecticut found that having an orgasm makes us much more honest than we would be in our daily life otherwise.

The high levels of oxytocin that flood your body after sex and orgasm make you more trusting and loving, so it's really no wonder that you find yourself spilling the beans.

I've had intense and intimate conversations with partners after sex before, but I've also had some baffling and awkward ones too (see above). That's because sometimes there's a reason we keep that honesty in check.

With orgasms flowing, too much oxytocin and no filter, you're a heck of a lot more likely to open your mouth without censoring yourself at all. That can mean awesome revelations (and total conversational fumbles, too).
