Just the ticket for after action satisfaction…
WHAT goes hand in hand with steamy great sex? According to a study conducted by dating website Victoria-Milan, a puff of a cigarette enhances the bedroom experience just after climax.
The study revealed that the majority of people who take up a tobacco product after climaxing aren’t regular smokers.
The study looked into the smoking habits of 7 064 of its active members from 17 countries to see who smokes regularly after sex, and who lights up because it’s a special occasion. More non-smokers than smokers from 10 of the 17 countries like to light up after sex.
French lovers are known for their open and passionate relationships, and 12.7% of them light up after climax as a habit because they are smokers. A further 22.1% French adulterers are non-smokers but will light up because the act of smoking is daring and adds more pleasure.
In Poland, 19.8% of adventurous adulterers smoke regularly and enjoy tobacco products after a tumble with their lover.
In the Netherlands, the Dutch throw caution to the wind with an almost equal number of smokers (19%) and non-smokers (19.2%) revelling in a relaxing smoke after achieving climax.
A massive 18.6% of non-smoking Swedes will break the rules and enjoy a smoke after sex to enhance their satisfaction.
Back home, one-fifth of South Africans (20%) are habitual smokers and a cigarette or similar after sex is common practice. In addition, 18.1% who don’t smoke outside of the bedroom say it’s the one time they’ll indulge in a tantalising tobacco product.
About the same percentages were found for people in Spain, Finland, Canada, Belgium, Norway, Italy and Germany.
One in 10 (10.1%) UK residents enjoying extramarital affairs are regular smokers and are no strangers to tobacco products after a romantic tryst.

Just 8% of people having affairs in the US classify themselves as regular smokers and smoke both in bed and out of it. An additional 9.8% say they love to enjoy a cigarette or similar right after sex.
