What's the deal with people craving a smoke after they've just had sex? I've seen it in movies all my life but I can't get to the bottom of why.
I could speculate that its some sort of final indulgence after a sweet session of sex or maybe some sort of cool down like in hot yoga but I dunno. Is there something physiological to it? Psychological?
If it is a cherry on top of the cake of indulgence and pleasure, why aren't we eating ice cream sundaes and meatball heroes after sex? Is it too messy?
Admittedly cigarettes do have sex appeal, they must since people continue to smoke even though we all know now what we know. Back then, as in James Dean, Coco Chanel, and Marilyn Monroe, we had no idea about how poisonous smoking was.
So wouldn't the healthy option or the "green" option be to indulge in a slice of vegan cheesecake after sex? Maybe a plate of ravioli? Or a big glass of chocolate milk poured into a baked potato and covered in hot fudge and vanilla ice cream?
