The Male Brain Just Wants to Turn Off After the Rest of the Body Has Its Fun

On behalf of ladies everywhere, let us just say, thanks science … you've now provided men with a concrete excuse for why they just want to roll over and fall asleep after getting their freak on.

A study released by a French medical group reveals that men don't choose to fall asleep after sex; it's the way their brains work. After sex, parts of their brain are designed to shut down, which deactivates the rest of the brain from sexual desire.

The study's results, reported in the U.K. Daily Mail, were obtained by monitoring the male brain via scans before and during orgasm (how romantic that must have been).

Not only did researchers find that the brain wants to shut down dudes' sexual desires, but post-sex, chemicals like oxytocin and serotonin are released into the male brain and can add a "powerful sleep-inducing effect."

"These experiments give us the first hints as to what happens in the brain during orgasm," said neuroscientist Serge Stoleru. "After men have an orgasm they usually experience a refractory period when they cannot be aroused.

"For women it seems to be different. They don't seem to have such a strong refractory period and may be asking for more when their partners just want a rest."

Thanks to you, too, Mother Nature.

Stoleru and company's research also showed that most men do feel relaxed after sex, with 80 percent saying they were able to drift off to sleep with no problems after sex.

But a more disturbing number also emerged at The Vitality Show, Europe's largest health and beauty gathering, the Daily Mail reports.

A survey of 10,000 adults revealed that 48 percent of men also said they had fallen asleep during sex.

And "science" isn't going to save you in that situation, fellas.

What crap, starts with a false premise, the source equates it's actual findings with a completely different conclusion, in other words, their 'conclusion' is completely different from the data their experiment actually showed and they show some false ideas about what some hormones actually do.

A survey circulated because of a Italian health care collection uncovers which will fellas really don't want to sleep immediately following having sex; this is the manner their brains work. Following sex, areas your mental performance are supposed to power down, which in turn deactivates the other chemistry of the brain through desire for sex.

The easiest way to stay awake after 'doing it' is to drink a Redbull. This is what I usually do and in a matter of seconds I am up for another round :D
