For a multitude of reasons, men are prone to falling asleep after intimacy, none of which have anything to do with your personality or performance in the bedroom.
The most fundamental cause of a drowsy partner is biology. According to Live Science, research into the biochemistry of satisfaction has discovered that when male discharge, a mix of brain chemicals is released, one of which is prolactin. Prolactin is a hormone that is produced in greater quantities after sleep and is linked to feelings of intimacy and the refractory period in men.
Because prolactin and sleep are intimately related — and because sexual discharge releases a higher amount of prolactin — men are more likely to feel tired after a session between the sheets.
In addition to prolactin, oxytocin and vasopressin are produced during the male discharge. Melatonin, the hormone that controls the circadian clock, is commonly found in these substances. Relaxation and slumber happen when all three of these hormones are present.
Furthermore, evolutionary psychologists at the University of Michigan and Albright College in Pennsylvania discovered that falling asleep after intimacy is associated with a greater desire for connection and affection from one's spouse.
If all of this talk about hormones and evolutionary connections has made your head spin, there's a simpler explanation for why your boyfriend is sleeping like a log after intercourse. Intimacy is typically felt in the bedroom, particularly in the evening. Because our brains associate bedtime with the bedroom, it's natural to feel sleepy in this setting. After an affair, both men and women are likely to be fatigued.
Many people, particularly men, report feeling physically and emotionally weary after intimacy. Though you can't always outsmart biology (Men will release sleep-inducing hormones after Intimacy no matter what), you can manipulate the environment to increase the likelihood of post-coital conversation.
