How to Tell When Someone Just Had Sex


Happy walking womanDid you know that just by walking down the street, or across the office, people may be able to figure out that you've gotten laid? Because having a vaginal orgasm does more than just put a little pep in your step. It actually causes you to walk differently, with a longer stride and a greater pelvic rotation. In a European study, trained sexologists (nice job title) were able to pick out, with an 81 percent accuracy, which women had an orgasm just by watching them walk.

But that's not the only way someone can tell if a woman has had sex. Here are a few others:

The Glow: There’s a scientific reason for us getting the flushed in the cheeks look after sex -- more blood flow -- but what about that aura of calm that seems to float around us after the fact? It happens. Recently, my husband and I went on a post-coital grocery store trip and ran in to some friends. The wife remarked to me, “You’re glowing,” with a little wink and a nod.

The Cat Who Ate The Canary Grin: This is also known as the Smirking Smile and if you see a woman looking sideways with this look on her face, you’ll know, yep, she just got laid. She has a secret that's making her go through her day with a sense of fulfillment. Because, seriously, nobody is that happy unless they just had sex with a happy ending.

The Wet Spot: I know this is gross but getting seminal moisture leaking through to your pants can be an unfortunate byproduct of having sex, at least if you don’t use a condom or your partner doesn’t pull out. And it's not one of the good ways you would want someone to be able to tell that you recently had sex. Wearing a pad post-intercourse can help prevent this -- just sayin'.

The Unflappably Buoyant Mood: A post-intercourse rise in endorphins can give you a fresh perspective on the annoyances of every day life: Go ahead, honk at me because I’m going too slow. Cut in front of me in the check-out line at the store. And let my kids scream at each other while they argue over who gets to sit in the front seat on the way to school. I. Don’t. Care. Thanks to a little early morning sunrise surprise, nothing is going to put me in a bad mood.

What's different about you after you've had sex?

Why in the world would I walk around wanting to guess if someone had sex recently? EEW.

I second that eww. I would have to be in a pretty desperate place to be checking for 'the wet spot'.

How can you tell when a person has run out of things to write about?.....

Seriously though, I highly disagree with the "cat that ate the canary" grin..because I wear that daily. And no, I don't get laid daily. ha.ha.ha.

Don't more women climax due to clitoral stimulation, not vaginal? Are they really the same; I feel like I've been told all my life that very few women can orgasim on vaginal sex alone. Am I missing something here?

It says vaginal orgasm. The vast majority of women do not have that. So even if we creepily hunt around for these clues, we're not likely to catch many of these glowing ladies anyway.

Ew at the wetness..but I am lmao at this post. I'm sure all except the wetness (I make sure to clean up, of course) apply to me, lol. When my Husband and I have sex..He takes me to another world and I feel so refreshed and alive afterwards. Mm!

okay girls, I know ewwww, but lets get honest here. I'll tell you about something you've all missed. There is a scent we give off. Yup, a scent that is obvious to every one who comes with in close or not so close proximity of us. It's the scent that you just 'know' when someone has served themselves or had sex. There you have it. Oh, and for future reference, I didn't seek the wet spot!

Someone tell me why I keep coming back to "The Stir." Between the article on if preemies are worth saving and this one, I am starting to question our countries intelligence and seriously hoping these women aren't picked or paid for these articles!
