Ah, sex.

Whether you and your boo do it lying down, standing up, sat on the kitchen table, or doggy style, there’s no denying that sex is an important part of any healthy relationship.

But, as it turns out, you should be doing something ELSE after sex to boost your relationship’s worth.

And that something else isn’t jumping up to have a shower, or falling straight to sleep.

It is in fact (you guessed it!) spooning.

Researchers at the University of Toronto Mississauga have revealed that women who had more than 15 minutes of snuggling after sex felt significantly more appreciated and cared for by their partner.

Speaking in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, they explained that couples who spend time “kissing, caressing, and loving talk" for 15 minutes after sex were more satisfied with their sex lives and overall relationships.

They added: “Duration of after-sex affection was even more important for sexual and relationship satisfaction than duration of sex and foreplay.”

The power of touch can also have major mental and physical benefits.

Amy Muise, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, said: "I think couples should be aware that the period after sex could be particularly important for bonding and that, if possible, spending more time being affectionate after sex could enhance feelings of sexual and relationship satisfaction."

There you have it, guys; best spend some extra time cuddling tonight.
