Does Spike ever smoke right after sex?

No, but he'll smoke after a fight.

Not that we've seen, but yeah, he does after a good fight.  I hate smoking, it's nothing but gross to me.  I won't be around smokers and I really can't stand that smell, but for some reason, Spike is the only one that can make it look sexy.  No offense to any smokers in here...lol!
When I say, "I love you," it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you, and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.

He was smoking a cigarette whilst getting a blowjob from Buffybot...

Which leads me to think that fighting is a sort of sexual experience for him.  Also, he smokes when he's talking to Buffy - in Becoming when he steals a fag from the cop that he knocked out and in a S6 episode (I forget which) when he flips a butt at Buffy's feet and she crushes it out with her boot. 

Smoking is, however, disgusting.

Spike makes everything look sexy, even something as disgusting as smoking   I happen to hate smoke (probably has something to do with watching my grandmother waste away from lung cancer), but put a cigarette in his hand, and it just makes my lust haze hazier.  Maybe it's just because it's on a TV screen, so I can't smell it and it doesn't kick up my asthma.  Maybe it's the way he holds it.  Dunno.  I stopped trying to figure out his powers of sexiness a long time ago.  Spike's like the Henry Mesmer of sex
Give me Spuffy, or give me death.

Yeah, that's one of the incidents I was thinking of Spikez_tart in regards to him fighting and smoking (also in the ep...crap, forgot the name.  Season seven when Buffy gets sucked into the portal?).

Hmm...smoking during a blowjob isn't necessarily like smoking right after sex--I don't know if that's how goldenusagi meant the question.  What I saw in my head upon reading the question was like totally post coitus, and he's having a smoke to top it off or something.

And yes, I don't find smoking in the least but totally agree with IB.  Maybe it's his hand working in conjunction with his lips and the eyes?  I don't know.  Other people with cigarettes I mostly find annoying and not sexy.  Nah--he could probably crack open an egg and make it look sexy

Those episodes were "Flooded" and "Get it Done."  And I agree, he does make everything look sexy.  It probably was more to do with the fact that you can't smell it on TV.  My grandfather died from lung cancer as well because of too much smoking, so that's never going to happen to me.  Sadly, my step-grandmother and aunt smoke all the time, I don't see them being around much longer.  I just don't see the point in it, there are faster ways to kill yourself.  Anyway, the one scene that really comes to mind is in "Storyteller," when he's just leaning against the wall, cigarette between his lips.  God, that's the hottest thing ever.

Thanks Tammy D - I knew somebody would help me out.  Spike also smokes after he kicks the crap out of Robin Wood.

It's oral fixation, that's why he looks so sexy doing it.  Just ask a Mulder-phile about sunflower seeds for more elaboration.

that is completely true.
Your heart will break, your tears will fall, but don't be suprised, if there is someone there, to catch you when you fall. Becuase you, yes you, are awesome.

Hmm, I'd forgotten about the Buffybot blowjob scene...  But I'm surprised we never saw him light up right after sex.  Of course, maybe Buffy would have punched him or something.

He does smoke a lot after fighting, though...
