Up In Smoke: Sleeping After Sex

Find yourself taking the express train to Dreamland every time you finish pleasing your lady in the sack? She probably doesn’t want to hear this, but scientifically, there is an answer to why you’re being such an inconsiderate prick (her words, not ours). According to a study performed by neuroscientist Serge Stoleru, a male’s cerebral cortex shuts down after reaching orgasm, and as soon as the much-anticipated sensation has come to a crescendo, two other areas of the brain tell the rest of the brain to stop feeling so horny. Combine the two and you are in a pretty good place to drift off to sleep.

“As frustrating as it is for most women that their male partners just roll over and fall asleep after sex, men aren't entirely to blame,” explained Dr. Neil Stanley. “Humans are the only animals in which sleep and sex are linked, and while often seen as just a poor excuse, there are scientific reasons why men feel tired after sex.”

We’re not saying you should use this as an excuse to roll over immediately after the deed is done, but maybe use this knowledge to your advantage and cuddle up to your spouse so you can adorably fall asleep in her arms.
