When your man rolls over and starts snoring before you have a chance to stay “Good night,” don’t think the worst of him. It’s not because he got what he wants and doesn’t want to talk, or it’s not even because you wore his ass out. He can’t help it!
There are scientifically proven reasons why he falls asleep after getting’ busy.
• Research shows that when a man reaches orgasm, he releases himself at that moment of any fear and anxiety, which puts him in the most relaxing state of mind and sleep is the natural next step. The snoring, well, that’s another thing altogether. You’re on your own dealing with that!
• More of that same research from Live Science – when men ejaculate, they release chemicals from the brain such as serotonin (a sleep aid), oxytocin, norepinephrine, vasopressin, nitric oxide and prolactin. It’s like he has a chemical cocktail when he climaxes. Prolactin in particular seems to be affiliated with high levels of sleep. In fact, in one research project, it was found that animals that were injected with prolactin became sleepy.
• Oxytocin is associated with a release of feelings of trust and closeness. It’s like he’s a baby and again and sleep comes easy (as long as he’s not teething).
• The most obvious reason is that you probably did it at night and in a bed, and that’s where sleep usually takes place, so he was just going with the flow.
There are advantages to the post-sex sleeping man – you get some alone time and if it was all that and a bag of chips, it’s just a matter of time before he will be ready to go again! Sleep is the ultimate rejuvenator when it comes to a man’s sex drive.
So don’t feel bad or get pissed off when he goes to Dream City after you’ve made love. You just can’t beat science.
