Just the ticket for af­ter ac­tion sat­is­fac­tion…

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - STAFF REPORTER

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.

A fur­ther 16.5% de­clare them­selves to be non-smok­ers but will let loose af­ter sex and light up to en­joy their af­ter-sex feel­ing even more.

Ir­ish lovers don’t mind slip­ping a cig­a­rette or sim­i­lar tobacco prod­uct into their bed­room rou­tine – 12.1% say it’s nor­mal for them to in­dulge in ni­co­tine while they get their breath back, and 15% say they never touch tobacco prod­ucts – un­less they’ve just cli­maxed.

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.

The founder and chief ex­ec­u­tive of Vic­to­ria-Mi­lan, Sig­urd Vedal, said the re­sults showed that smok­ing af­ter sex isn’t an ad­dic­tion to ni­co­tine; it’s an ad­dic­tion to plea­sure.
