My gf says “thank you” after we have sex. I don’t know how to respond. Seems like there’s no douchier way to respond than “You’re welcome.” What should I say back to that?

Sarah: What the hell’s wrong with “You’re welcome”? You’ve done a fine job, apparently, so just take the compliment. If it feels a little too Regina George to just take the compliment, you can flip it around into a compliment to her. How about, “Yours is my favorite pussy to smash, my darling” or “I see my future in your eyes when I see my dick in your mouth.” I’m just spit-balling here. The point is, your lady is trying to tell you that you satisfy her sexually, so respond appropriately.
Debby: “You’re welcome” is a fine reply. So is “I love you” (if you actually love her) or a kiss on the lips or head or hand or whatever part you’re around and want to smooch at the moment. Saying “thank you” to her is also fine. You just did something cool and fun and maybe even special together - why not pay a compliment?
