I would like to know more about this, and also if there is something I can do about it!
After my husband and I have sex, he is tired and starts snoring after 2-3 minutes. I, on the other hand, am wide awake, wound up and still physically excited. I replay what just happened, and want to talk about it. Maybe this is why he goes to sleep? (ha ha). I understand that there are "phases" to sexuality, and the "resolution phase" is when your body physically goes back to it's pre-excited state of being.
So, as my husband sleeps, I spend my "resolution phase" staring at him (er, glaring at him would be the right word). It's not a big deal in our marriage, something I understand to be gender differences at a very basic biological level. Sometimes he overcomes his "maleness" and cuddles, but there is never any "pillow talk" that you see in the movies. We do most of our cuddling beforehand. Is this "pillow talk" only in the movies, or only reserved for people in their 20s? (We are both in our mid-40s...we're still young!).
