Up in Smoke: Decoding the Female Orgasm:

Just like your girlfriend has “accidentally” leafed through your collection of Playboys, we’re sure you’ve snuck a peek at some of the pages of Cosmo to uncover any information you can find on the mystery of the female orgasm. To save you the time, we’re going to set the facts straight about the elusive female orgasm and the magical hormone oxytocin that is released upon occurrence.

You may not know this, but the hormone oxytocin is what makes your woman so wildly calm, cool and collected after you two get busy in the sack. Commonly referred to as the cuddle hormone, a portion of the brain called the hypothalamus releases extra oxytocin into her system once a woman has achieved orgasm. This hormone is known to forge bonds between males and females (no wonder some girls are so insistent on cuddling after doing the deed!), ease stress and even induce sleep. Because of this, multiple researchers have noted that women who have more oxytocin released into their system than usual are likely to have more sex.

And yes, this hormone is directly correlated to why post-fight sex is so good; it’s not your wild moves that are winning her back after you accidently shrank all of her tank tops.
