Many women still seek the answers to the internal questions: "Why your man falls asleep immediately after passionate intercourse? Is it normal? And how to react to this?"
The majority of women believe that ''dropping'' straight into sleep after sex by their men is an evident sign of selfishness and indifference to the partner, but scientists proved they are actually wrong. The roll-over-and-sleep effect that appears after intercourse is a natural reaction of the human body to the effort it has made.
Here are some real reasons men fall asleep after intercourse:
Fact №1 Sex frequently takes place at night, in a bed, and is, after all, physically exhausting (often more so for the man than the woman, although this certainly varies). So when sex is over, it’s natural for a guy to feel sleepy. You should keep in mind that sex, by its nature, is very relaxing.
Fact №2 Men ejaculate during orgasm, and the hormones such as oxytocin, serotonin and prolactin are set free induce the state of sleepiness. The sleep sensation manifests more intensely than on a regular basis. Even if the tension of the body is a positive one, it is also a very big, almost exhausting one.
Fact №3 Also, the blood rush after the climax depletes the muscles of energy-producing glycogen and because men typically have higher muscle density than women, they become more tired after sex.
Fact №4 Plenty of people tend to hold their breath from time to time while they are having sex. Its rhythm becomes abrupt and the pulse intensifies. Therefore, there is a lack of oxygen, which contributes to the need to rest - nothing serious, everything comes back to normality in the postlude.
Fact №5 The state of sleep should be interpreted in a positive way, because it proves the fact that you have reached an orgasm and that everything has gone alright. In rare cases, men who are exhausted during and after intercourse, on a longer period of time may suffer from medical problems. In this case, leave your inhibitions and self-pride aside and have a complete check-up.
So, ladies, next time your man rolls over and nods off rather than cuddles you up or have a talk, remember, he really does need to sleep after sex because the male brain is designed to switch off at that point. But, well, if you want to make him more resistant, write down these simple tips:

Some more interesting facts: A study also suggested that men think about sex 19 times a day. They also think about food almost as much as sex - 18 times a day - closely followed by sleep, which crosses their mind 11 times a day. On average, men still think about sex twice as much as women, who entertain the thought just 10 times a day. Women also thought less about food and sleep daily, thinking about them just 15 and 8.5 times respectively.
