Having sex when you are tired after work pressures and so on is one reason for falling asleep right after. Sex gives good relaxation to mind and body. That’s why you can sleep well after a good sex.

‘The brain releases oxytocin during sex. It increases stimulation and excitement. But when it wears off, people feel really tired. Cuddle hormone’ also helps regulate the stress hormone cortisol. When a man reaches menopause, ejaculation occurs. Then the hormones are released. Then the body is de-stressed. After that, the researchers say, you can go to a good night’s sleep’, says Dr. Lowry.
