Science Proves You Right: There Is a Connection Between Sex & Pillow Talk

HelloFlo is a womens health company committed to normalizing the conversations we have about womens bodies so that we can all live healthier lives.

If your partner has ever told you that you’re quite chatty post-sexy time, you can now tell them you’re not alone

A series of studies focused solely on proving that there was a correlation between sex and the pillow talk that tends to follow.

“Results showed that merely thinking about sex, even without being aware of it, encouraged self-disclosure,” one study claims.

The study, which was titled "Sex Unleashes Your Tongue", found that any range of sexual stimuli — talking about sex, seeing sexual images or engaging in sex — all lead to an increased likelihood of other kinds of intimacy.

The benefits of talking before, after and during sex have often been linked to healthier relationships.

A study published in Fertility and Sterility, for instance, found that talking about sexual dysfunction could lead to similar improvements as actual medication would.

“Clearly the fact that the women thought more about their sexuality and spoke with their partners about sex during the course of the study in itself brought about measurable improvements,” study author Michaela Bayerle-Eder said in a press release according to Glamour.
