    Post Sex Napping

    Not a problem for the guy, but a nuisance for the woman........what is the deal with men and post sex napping? And lets get beyond "good physical conditioning". Is it mental? Is it physical? A loss of some sort of chemical from the body during sex? Any factual idea will help.

    I'm not sure I follow what you mean ... I'm a woman and tend to indulge in post-sex napping (but not following quickies - they tend to wake me up nicely so I enjoy them more in the morning). It seems to me that it's a natural follow-up to afterglow
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    Hi Salem,

    It's true that orgasms induce sleep in men -- but it has nothing to do with the exertion. I've used masturbation for years to fall asleep after 30 min of staring at the ceiling. Supposedly a hormone is released in men after orgasm that brings this on:

    My wife and I laugh about going different directions after sex -- she's just getting going and I'm ramping down. But she loves to sleep too, so it's a good thing.
