In an anonymous online study, researchers questioned participants about their sex-sleep lives, asking them who falls asleep after sex and who falls asleep first when going to bed not after sex? Participants whose partners nodded off immediately after sex were typically left wanting more. Fighting off the urge to go to sleep after sex is no easy task, although most people enjoy a little post-sex cuddling. I say you should take immediate post-sex sleep as a sign of satisfaction. Do you prefer to cuddle after sex or are you usually the first to be knocked out? Do you take it personal if your partner falls asleep right away?
New research indicates that women are more likely to fall asleep after sex than men
New research provides evidence that sexual intercourse has greater sedative properties for women than it does for men. The findings have been published in Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences. The study of female and 98 male college students found that women reported a higher likelihood of falling asleep after heterosexual penile—vaginal intercourse than did men. Women were also more likely to report falling asleep before their partner compared to men.
When it comes to post-sex behaviour, the myth has always been that men fall asleep while women want to cuddle. However you decide to spend your post-coital bliss, recent research has revealed that what you do after sex is just as important as sex itself. In a study of undergraduates, Daniel Kruger and Susan Hughes, two researchers at the University of Michigan, discovered that in couples, a woman is just as likely as a man to be the first to fall asleep. However, regardless of gender, whoever was the partner who wasn't snoozing after orgasm felt really left out.
