A closer look at the emotional pain of sex
20 February 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about several couples from all walks of life having troubled conversations after having sex.

Though "After Sex" is low budget, it is still an interesting film. All the couples that they presented are of different background. They include sex with ex, domineering homosexual relationship, sexual exploitation of a friend, coming to terms of homosexuality, a loving old couple, teenage experimentation and one night stand. Each segment is interesting in their own right, as they reveal raw emotions and pain. With the variety of scenarios and emotions, one is likely to find a segment that strikes a chord. The most striking segment is the one where a guy lovingly says he loves his partner, but the partner passionlessly says "Whatever". It's sad.

"After Sex" is only for people who want to take a closer look at the emotional pain of sex. If you are looking for sex or action, then this is not for you.
