That leaves you so DRAINED. STEALTH BRAG: I had sex with my wife last night. She did all the work to boot. I woke up this morning barely able to move. I slept through multiple alarms and missed two meetings.
I like that pose in your avatar.

I couldn’t function and had to take a shower and drink a big ass espresso for my eyes to even fully open.
Beats me, I feel like I get more energy after banging. It's an invigorating activity.

You should try exercise.

It always makes me feel recharged and I feel like I just had a 14 hour nap.

Maybe OP's missus has such a unique technique? We will never know.
If I am stuck on a boss in a video game, I can have sex and beat it first try after.... to the point of where "I am stuck on this level" has become a code word for us

With the last girl I had I just had to stick on Netflix and turn down the lights, no matter when it was, it just seemed to flick on a switch lmao.

And well that's one way to stick it to Strategy Guides.

I could have fallen right back asleep at any point too. I’m 33 now and I can’t imagine staying awake long after that first nut. The sandman just starts teabagging me till I pass out. Legit left me thinking I can’t tap ass during the work week.

Sex doesn't do that. Being too old for sex does that.

If i'm drinking or out having a good time and have sex, the hangover or lack thereof is lessen or non-existent the next day.

If you are so drained after a little sexytime then you should go see a doctor in order to check your hormone levels.
I usually feel pretty good afterwards.

"When a man orgasms, prolactin is released – a hormone that is linked to feelings of sexual satisfaction. The primary reason a man feels tired after sex is due to the fact that prolactin causes sleepiness and drowsiness. During sleep people have higher levels of prolactin."
So you’re all wrong and I’m right. You’re all broken not me! Also blowies don’t do that to me, I get a slight bout of sleepy happiness but it passes and I second wind out of it. Sex though like I said, POWER OFF.

Se can be a form of aerobic exercise (for me more than others) so I can see you waking up tired after sleeping after sex. Normally you shouldn't sleep after aerobics.

Talk about yourself but if your stamina is that low then see the doctor.

Well I always get a little drowsy after sex but unless I was already tired I don't fall asleep. If anything it is as if my mind can finally focus on something else than sex and I all of a sudden remember something/get a great idea.

Like earlier today I fucked my wife (and I did "all the work" and still did not fall asleep OP!) and right as we were finished I just realized were I left my headphones I had looked for all morning before that. Best part about the whole ordeal no doubt.

Oxytocin or not, training aerobically for endurance does make a difference. I remember when I switched my workouts from mostly weight training to more of a heavy focus on actually building endurance. Like running until you're specifically breathing hard and out of breath, and then holding that pace until you stabilize your breathing without stopping the workout. And then just doing that over and over, and increasing the intensity or duration. Running, jumping jacks, jump rope, box jumps, burpees, elliptical, stairmaster.

When I was actually pushing hard on all that stuff, my energy levels were through the roof. Weight training only left me drained, full of blood, heavy. Endurance training left me bouncing around, light on my feet, unable to sit still. You rebound from physical exertion almost instantly. Like, full blown sprints until you think your legs wont hold you up, then fine within 2 minutes after that. It effects everything. You'll still maybe be relaxed and a little sleepy, but probably wont have to call into work the next day.

Ejaculation is costly for men, especially after 30
Semen contains tons of vitamins, minerals, and cerebral fluid
Eastern philosophy encourages semen retention. Sex without ejaculation

Look into it
Go a week or 2 without. Drain yourself. And see how you feel the following days

It's real. When I was younger, early twenties, I'd bust several nuts after a long night of drinking. Get up the next morning filled with energy and hit the gym.

Now, mid 30s, bust too many and I'm lethargic and sleepy like OP

Currently averaging 1-3 spaced out over a month
Energy is good and don't need a lot of sleep

That's strange, OP, I never felt prolonged tiredness after sex.

The only thing different on the next day are my leg muscles that hurt depending on the performance. That rarely happens after 11 years of marriage :/

It kind of depends on my state before sex as to what it does to me. To be honest it just seems to swing me to the opposite state, no matter what. If I have sex when I'm tired, it's like a double shot of espresso. Start when I'm wide awake and ready for the day, then I feel like a nap. I don't know, try having sex when you're tired and see if it wakes you up OP, maybe you're a bizarro world weirdo like me.

I dont know dude, nature has basically built into us a desire to nut and then go again

Seems like bullshit
