Do you think it's weird to say "thank you" after sex?

LoveReImagined LoveReImagined
My husband thinks I'm completely insane...

He's been working tons if overtime at work and came home and helped me put together a trampoline. We didn't even eat dinner until 10 tonight. He's exhausted and didn't really want to have sex...but we did anyway. Afterward, I said "thank you".

He thinks I'm completely nuts...and this isn't the first time I've said thank you. I say it pretty often, you know, when the sex is super awesome or he's made me cum into oblivion. We've been married 9 years so I'm sure I've said it plenty.

So...what do you think? Is it weird to say thank you?

No, after awesome sex, I tell OW that all the time. Sometimes even after not awesome. Especially after she has had a long day. O r if I woke her up to do the deed.

I don't think it is weird. I always say thank you after I have an orgasm. I think it is a remnant of a Dom/sub relationship I was in a couple of years ago. The guy I'm with now thinks it's sweet that I think him actually.

I think it's a little weird, but I don't think you're crazy for saying it. I do it, too, sometimes. Especially when I really just needed that kind of a release.

I think everyone should say thank you, or at least something affirming, after sex.

It is never weird to say "thank you", and when it is to someone you love, in recognizing their actions towards you, whatever that may be, then it's all good!

Knowing my hubs and the way our relationship is...him saying "haha you're crazy!" Is pretty close to a "you're welcome". I'll take it haha! He did tell me to poll eden to see what you guys think. There we have it. I win again!

He says I'm crazy all the time. I'm not offended bc I know how crazy I am. Usually when he says I'm crazy it's because he likes what I said or knows I'm right. Silly man.

I always say thank u after an orgasm w a partner. I don't care if the other person does though, although at least some acknowledgement like "that was great!" is appreciated.

Same thing for me as you, OP. I say thank you especially if he made me cum to the moon and back, which he usually does. My fiancé thinks it's nice though. It confirms that he did as good as he thought.

Feedback on performance is always good, if taken as honest and loving communication.

I don't know saying thank you sounds slightly odd to me but hey whatever floats your boat.

My guy will say it if I do something he knows I'm not a huge fan of. He doesn't do it all the time but he does say it sometimes and it honestly makes me smile to hear him tell me thank you for doing those things for him.

I don't think so! My wife and I thank each other every time and we've been married for 7 years. It's not just polite, it's full of true appreciation. ?

I answered 'No, it's not weird, it's polite' because it's closest to what I do. I do say thank you in a seductive or playful way, not cuz it's polite. I want my lover to know how wonderful - amazing - pleasurable - satisfying - great the whole experience was for me. I think we all need to know that what we're doing pleasures our partner. it helps us know what works & even encourages exploration.

I don't think I really say it to purposely be polite. This post has been here forever and I still say thank you every now and then. Aunt Flo was visiting last week so we had "deal night"-he rubs my back and I give him a blow job. We've had this deal going for years now...I love it.
Anyway, he noticed that most of the time when I say thank you that it's after I've given HIM a bj. Ya know, kinda like "hey man, thanks for that huge, delicious load off jizz you gifted me after you let me suck your cock".

I think I am very far from an ordinary wife...

I think this is exactly where my husband stands..he just thinks it's a weird thing to say. Most couples probably snuggle and kiss after sex...we do too. And sometimes the thank you escapes my mouth before I even realize it.

I say thank you, mostly after receiving oral. I recognize it's not always easy to do for long enough to make me cum but my gf does it. For that I'm grateful. After 18 years of bad sex in a mostly bad marriage, I'm thankful to find someone who loves sex as much as my lady. So why not let her know it? After 9 years, it's great to see you still show such consideration and caring towards one another.

I don't think we've every done that, but I wouldn't necessarily consider it "weird."

I say "thank you" after a particularly long session to let my boyfriend know that he indeed gave me what I needed. We only get to have sex once every two weeks because of our schedules so it's a long intense session.
