Have you ever heard a guy say ‘I’ve got to go’ after sex?

What about ‘don’t go to sleep’ from a woman?

If your answer is yes, it seems you’re not alone.

According to a survey of 2,000 people conducted by, these are some of the most common things people say to each other after sex.

The most popular post-coital comment from men is a simple ‘wow!’.

Second place on the male list was the question ‘when can we do that again?’, and third was the brutal ‘I’ve got to go’.

  1. Wow!
  2. When can we do that again?
  3. I’ve got to go
  4. I needed that!
  5. Did you have an orgasm?
  6. I love you
  7. Where’s my phone?
  8. That was so good
  9. Thanks for being amazing
  10. I love being with you

Meanwhile, from women, the most common thing they said after sex was ‘you’re amazing’.

Second on their list was ‘don’t go to sleep’, which mirrors previous research by the same company that found the eighth most common sex thing women want men to do more is not to fall asleep right after sex.

In third place was ‘give me a cuddle’, and in fourth place was ‘I love being with you’. A subtle reply to an unreciprocated ‘I love you’, perhaps?

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert with, said: ‘What we say straight after sex says so much about the state of the relationship.

‘Most couples in long-term relationships say very little because they are often going through the motions and the sex is the same every time.

‘What is more revealing is what is said in new relationships when you are still really into each other and the sex is exciting.

‘You can tell when a person’s interest is waning by their muted response at the end of sex.

It’s funny that absolutely no one uses that classic line: “Did the earth move for you?” I guess we have new ways of expressing how good the sex is these days.’
