    My OH and I were discussing this last night as (he) dosed off after sex. I find that afterwards I feel energised yet relaxed, a strange, contradictory feeling I suppose. My OH almost instantly falls asleep.

    I know that the general consensus is that afterwards men roll over and women lie awake but is this really true? Is it the same for same sex relationships?

    It depends on the time of day. During the morning or when I am sleepy or during the late evening sex will wake me up.

    During the day it makes me sleepy.

    i agree with MM depends on time of day, sometimes im wide awake and raring to go and other times need to sleep, i think it depends how long the session has been, and how many orgasms ive had as sometimes im completley wiped out

    sex leaves me on a high. it makes him sleepy. it's not unusual for me to nip round and get a few things done while he's snoozing. that's not so romantic is it? but it's very practical- i get to have a lie in when it all catches up with me the next morning.

    Then I am a guy in this relationship and my partner is the woman I generally fall asleep within 5 minutes after having orgasm, unless my partner manages to keep me awake. He is usually the one who is awake and sometimes wants more and cuddling - I dont mind of course, but he needs to manage to keep me awake

    Sex usually totally fires me up. Like Ju, I usually wait for 5 mins til OH is snorring his head off, and then I go and do some chores as I have so much energy.The only time it makes me sleepy is if I am pissed, then I may zonk out after.

    I cannot help it! I am generally feeling very weak after an orgasm (but very content) and unless I manage to get up immediately the chances are I will be at least having a nap in matter of minutes. The stronger the orgasm,the more likely I will be asleep soon after it.

    And see? AA is the same

    I tend to need sleep after sex, it makes my already fatigued brain/body just need to doze. But the OH - it depends, most often he gets tired but he also gets hungry a lot. We both tend to just feel relaxed and chilled out after sex at the least. But it's usually me that falls asleep.

    i tend to fall asleep, but i am that person who can sleep 12 hours a night and still manage to nap 2 hours a day. With my gf although she is tired afterwards it does take a lot for her to sleep. I generally fall asleep cwtched up to her and wake up a hour later with her watching tv or something lol
