    Totally think it’s on an indi basis. Mr.ND likes to stay up an watch some tv or something, I could snuggle right up and be out in one minute (except for him giving me 2 minutes and then hurrying me off to the restroom to prevent UTIs….of ALL the things I ever tell him about womanhood, he remembers the one that interrupts my favorite sleep! LOL). I think each person is different, and not just most women do x most guys do y.

    Ya, you are weird.

    Okay really, its tottaly normal-  after all that fun stuff, the bloods pumping, you’ve got all the happy hormones going though you.. I just don’t know how anyone can sleep right after, but my SO can pass out in 10 mins easy after. I just say I need to go do my ‘click click” (code for web serfing) or something before I can head to sleep.

    Im the same way! Pretty much guarentee that SO will be fast asleep within ten minutes, and I sit there, ready to run a marathon! Ok maybe not that bad, but I do have to calm down and take my time before I fall asleep.

    We usually cuddle a bit then both sleep, unless it’s morning sex. I never used to be able to with previous partners though.

    Sex totally knocks me out. Darling Husband jokes I’m just like a guy.

    @SoupyCat:  Me too!! My Fiance always says I’m the “man” when it comes to knockin boots.  Give me two minutes and I’m out.

    I voted for the first option. But we’re usually intimate in the AM, or right before we have to go somewhere- so in those cases we wake up. But on days we both have off work or on the occasionally night we usually fall asleep together afterwards.

    I used to be totally wide awake, and have to read or play some mindless card game on my iPhone or something. But now I just roll over and pass out, I don’t even leave the bed to pee. (Knock on wood I don’t get UTI’s, either!)

    It usually makes me fall asleep! Unless we are doing it in the morning, then I don’t feel as tired afterwards! So I guess it depends on the time of the day for me!

    My husband will be sound asleep within minutes, whereas I’m usually pretty awake. Whenever I tease him about it, he says it’s my fault that he’s tired anyway. :p

    Darling Husband and I actually had a convo about this when we first started dating and he looked it up… when you “do it” your body actually releases some sort of hormone that makes you sleepy! I have no solid facts about this because it was a long time ago that he looked it up, but sometimes if he can’t fall asleep he’ll even jokingly ask me to help him out (TMI) haha.
