    Why men fall asleep after having sex

    Here’s some news from the world of science that could settle some old disputes in the battleground of the marital boudoir. Throughout history, unsatisfied wives and girlfriends have wondered why their otherwise-perfect male partners roll over and fall straight to sleep after sex instead of engaging in endless chit-chat. A team of researchers from Inserm in France believe they have the answer: it seems that men just can’t help it. Brain scans showed that after orgasm, the thinking area of men’s brains actually shuts down. Other parts then send a message out that the job is done, to let the body know that its interest in sex is no longer required. Then, (just in case even further explanation is needed), the brain is hit with surges of oxytocin and serotonin, nature’s own “shut up and go to sleep” chemicals, rendering dudes all but powerless against the urge to crash


    In truth, we do it because we don't want to talk afterwards

    1. Not sure we were doing that much thinking before orgasm either.

    2. We ain't sleeping, we're reloading.

    Really..how much effort do chicks put into sex, anyway?

    Unless you buy in to the porno thing..in real life..chicks don't do much.

    Most of the effort is on the guy.

    And not as much as a thanks..afterwards..

    So..why not sleep?
