Women! 5 Things a Man Does Before You Give Him Some*
1. He Actually Tries to Listen to You
He zones out occasionally, but for the most part he's trying to listen. This is your best opportunity to get to know each other, and possibly develop a relationship. There's a chemical released during sex that inhibits his ability to focus on what you're saying longer than five-minute spurts. Before sex, he may be able to hold multiple marathon-high-school phone conversations with you till 4am. After sex, the chemical released prohibits it.
2. He Notices All Your Positives
This man is looking at you with rose-colored glasses. He sees everything that is wonderful about you. You can actually probe this for information: "What do you like about me?" Your smile, your body, the cutest face, you smell so good, you're funny as hell... He's selling himself on a reason to invest his time, money, and attention.
After sex, all the negatives are glaring. I had a friend say he stopped talking to this woman because she had old hands. "Her hands look like my grandma's hands. All veiny and shit. Ugh." Do you honestly think he noticed that before sex. No he didn't. (I've heard, "Her abdomen is too long...with those short ass legs. Un-proportionate ass. Ugh.") Solidify your positives by holding out.
3. He Tries Not To Say Anything Stupid
This is hard. Almost impossible. But he tries. As he is trying to listen to your story about being stalked by this guy you went out with "like only two times", he's trying not to say, "Bullshit! Ain't nobody stalking your long abdomen ass. C'mon Son... getdafuckouttaherewitdatbullshit." It may slip, but he's trying.
After sex, he speaks at will.
4. He Holds His Fart
You're probably holding yours too. My advice is to keep holding yours - forever - I hate hearing women fart. But he's definitely holding his. He wants maintain a squeaky clean image in your mind, and improve all possibility of chance that you may put your warm wet mouth in the vicinity of that area at any moment's notice. That's the only reason he's holding it.
5. He Exercises
Even if he doesn't actually make it to the gym, he thinks about it. He wants to work on his stamina and muscle definition to impress you and put it down when the opportunity arises. Touch his arm. Tight, huh? He's been working out.
Extra news for you: He's actually doing push-ups in the bathroom right before you're about to give it up. That's what's taking him so long. He's using Wonder 8 Oil to get all shiny, slippery sexy for you. After sex, he's ashy, eating pizza. Hold out, get your future man in shape.

Squares who care about their credit score, have read a book in the past five years (outside of prison), and pay mortgages. There are cultures where beauty supply jewelry and twenty ones with a Benji on top is the only prerequisite for you to give it up. You're selling yourself cheap though - I'm just trying to help.
