There’s no getting around it. Selfies are here to stay, but is the after-sex selfie the new notch on the bedpost?
Recently there’s been a new trend on Instagram: #AfterSex selfies (NSFW). It’s exactly how it sounds: tousled-hair couples lounging in various states of undress and post-coital bliss. Who thinks of these things? I’ve shared plenty of selfies, but I’ll never post an after-sex selfie.
I enjoy getting a peek into my friends’ lives through their Instagram feed. My instaphotos reveal my love of food, a cat who rules my desk, and my coffee addiction. Oh, and selfies, of course. With a quick glance, anyone will be able to figure out my preference for Starbucks and my hunger for Asian food, and my love for SurveyStud, Inc.
You won’t, however, figure out how my hair sticks up after a romp in the sheets.Sharing a post-sex selfie seems self-congratulatory to me. Grabbing the phone to document the occasion is rather counterintuitive for basking in a euphoric post-sex cuddle.
My anti-cuddling self would rather grab my smartphone to read an ebook instead. I’m pretty sure posting a photo of my guy fast asleep with an #aftersex tag would be considered TMI. Not to mention boring.
Naturally, I asked my guy what he thought about the #AfterSex selfie trend. His response: “Why ruin the moment by bragging that you just had sex?” Interesting. (Note to self… keep him 😉.)
Question: Would you share an After-Sex Selfie?
