Sleep after orgasm?

It has been a long tradition for me that when I can't sleep I give myself an orgasm and I fall right to sleep. As a result whenever I orgasm I am immediately tired, my boy friend is the opposite. After an orgasm he is energized and ready to take on the world. So I am curious about others after orgasm habits.

I'm exactly the opposite- I feel energized (but relaxed) and unable to sleep- my partner can't keep his eyes open! Getting myself off would be the last thing I would do to fall asleep!!!!

I'm completely awake afterwards, whether it's by myself or with my partner. My partner falls asleep immediately. Terrible combination haha.

It has had both effects on me in the past. But generally, orgasms make me pretty tired.

I actually try to have an orgasm before going to sleep because it makes me fall asleep faster. That said, it doesn't necessarily improve the quality of my sleep, it just makes me go faster.

Also, it depends on the time of day. If I have an orgasm in the middle of the day, I'm not really tired.

I like to go to bed after we have sex. I dont get tired from sex, I just like to relax after we do it and fall asleep for a good nights sleep.

Vanessa Weiss Vanessa Weiss
I'm known to get up out of bed, get dressed and go for a walk (even in the middle of the night) after sex. Or pace around the apartment, take a shower, do the dishes... Most of the time I've got to move or do something unless I'm quite tired before we even start.

Endocott Endocott
It's funny because I like to cuddle and stay up (usually) after an orgasm. My girlfriend on the other hand, likes to fall asleep right after. Isn't it usually the running joke that the guy has sex, rolls over and falls asleep? I just find it amusing!

Clitoral orgasms put me to sleep. G-spots rev me the hell up!!, squirting wears my body out, but revs up my brain. Go figure, huh?

For me it just depends on who I'm with. With my main we could and did play and cum all day, give me a few minutes and back at it again. The other I cum a time or two when he's finished I'm ready for the long drive home then sleep like a rock.

For me, it sometimes happens that I really want to sleep after that, but other times I become much more alert. I can't really predict which one I'll get.

I use to fall right to sleep after an orgasm. Thishappened for decades. Then it just stoped working all the time. I would wind up entergetic. Maybe 1 out 7 times i would pass right out. I don't know why. I think I wasn't getting much sleep when I would pass out.

Most of the time I want to sleep right after. I masturbate to make myself sleep on nights I can't sleep as well
When I'm with my guy though, half the time I'm tired as well, but half the time I'm crazy energized. And he seems to always be the opposite of whatever I am after we're done.

Depends, sometimes there is no change at all and sometimes I'm tired. My man is always tired after an orgasm though. As soon as he's done, he wants me to rub him (Not sexually . . . head, chest, back, etc.)and he passes out. LOL.

We usually have sex right before my bedtime, so we'll sleep like a rock after we're done cleaning up. If we have sex in other parts of the day, I'll still like to have a short nap, before doing anything else.

Depends, I've gone through all four. Ha ha!

MOST of the time, I do feel worn or tired after an orgasm, especially if it was a particularly heavy session or at night. Sometimes it gets me ready to tackle the day, but more so because it calms my sexual tensions beforehand so I feel refreshed and at ease. However, occasionally when the orgasm was hard to approach to, I am energized, but not feeling much change since I wasn't completely sated. ;_; It all depends on the scenario, time of day, and how you approach it, I suppose!

I just go right to sleep, and it helps my body feel really relaxed in general too. So it can be good for before work or something, but usually I like to sleep.

For me it depends, as others have said. Sometimes I'll feel energized and ready to go, other times I'll feel so relaxed I fall asleep pretty quick. Whenever I fall asleep after I always sleep like a log though, which is really nice.

Sometimes when I have trouble sleeping, I find that a good orgasm can work wonders. I tend to get a little sleepy after I orgasm regardless of the time of day, and it helps my body to relax.

Most of the time I feel energized unless I am very tired before and then I just get more tired trying to orgasm.
Later this pm I have a kick-boxing sparring session with some dude. I plan to masturbate about an hour before going to the gym. This dude better be ready.....

Well a few minutes after sex I orgasmed during, I feel really energized, about 20 minutes after sex I feel really relaxed and then I sleep like a rock.

It really depends on if I'm tired before hand. If I am just waking up I am energized, if it's before bed I get tired (usually), and if it's in the middle of the day or night... there's no telling.

It depends, really. Sometimes I pass out(generally after a long day) or if it's morning sex I feel like the king of the world.

My boyfriend and I are the same way thankfully for us. after we have sex we both tend too curl up and sleep all night. sometimes if he is having problems sleeping I will give him a blow job just to relax him.

After any sort of sex with my partner, both he and I can fall right to sleep after no matter what time of day it is. If it's just me, after an orgasm I'm energized and ready to start something new.

My Hitachi is regularly an "insomnia cure" for me. I have issues falling asleep due to anxiety, and the Hitachi is sure to relax me. My partner just gets hungry.

98% of our sex use to take place late at night - and we found it a great relaxer. Not only did we fall asleep easier, but got more restful sleep and woke up more refreshed.

Recently we've engaged in more sex earlier in the evening - since its too early to go to sleep - we enjoy the evening together. However the sleep inducing effect is lost. If I'm having a problem I take a 2 mg melatonin and I'm out in about 15 minutes.

I'm either super awake and energized, or promptly fall asleep. Varies based on the day, my orgasm, and what we were doing.
