The film opens with a montage of various couples waking up and getting ready for the day after having slept with each other. We watch as their morning routines play out, each couple navigating the emotional fallout that can come with intimacy.

Among the couples featured are two longtime friends, Matt (Dan Cortese) and Kristy (Virginia Madsen), who are each other's "backup plan" but never seem to actually commit. There's also Christopher (Johnathon Schaech) and Nikki (Brooke Shields), who are in mid-divorce, but their encounter proves too tempting to resist. Meanwhile, Al, (D. B. Sweeney), a successful lawyer, and his wife Elsa (Maria Pitillo) try to spice up their sex life with role-playing. However, Al's innermost desires are revealed when he becomes a little bit too into his alternate persona.

Throughout the movie, the themes of intimacy and relationships are explored in a lighthearted and relatable way. The dialogue is witty and humorous, reflecting the highs and lows of love and attraction. Each couple's story uniquely explores different aspects of relationships, such as the fear of commitment, infidelity, and the struggle to keep the spark alive.

The film is directed by Cameron Thor, who seamlessly interweaves the various storylines to maintain the movie's pace and cohesion. The characters are well-developed, and the actors give strong performances, with particular praise going to Brooke Shields and Dan Cortese, who have a natural on-screen chemistry. The music that accompanies the film, mainly composed of light pop-rock songs, sets the mood for the different scenes and elevates the movie's overall viewing experience.

In conclusion, After Sex is a satisfying romantic comedy that provides thought-provoking insight into the complexities of relationships.
