Before taking that ambien, or before taking that melatonin try a more pleasurable way. There is scientifically back evidence that shows having an orgasm helps you sleep better. Much Better.
As a matter of fact, if you can stop gasping or giggling, orgasms have a slew of health benefits you should know about.
It’s a cliché that men fall asleep right after sex, but intercourse actually can help both men and women nod off. Feeling relaxed and comfortable are big factors in having an orgasm, so it makes sense that there’s a tendency to want to snooze right after.
During and after sex, the brain releases powerful hormones (including norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, prolactin, and vasopressin), which can trigger the urge to cuddle or just pass out. Men are especially likely to fall asleep because of the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for interpreting and responding to new information, slows down drastically right after orgasm in males.
One reason some individuals have a hard time falling asleep is do to chronic pain. How can an orgasm help? Endorphins are released during orgasm and can provide varying degrees of pain relief. Oxytocin likely plays a role as well. According to one study “the pain tolerance threshold and pain detection threshold increased significantly by 74.6% and 106.7%. Orgasms have an analgesic effect on your body: Suppressing pain without affecting sensitivity to touch.
How about stress? Have you ever laid in bed at night stressing about the big meeting in the morning? Occasional stress is part of life; the traffic jam on the way to work, raising a family, paying bills. Stress that never ends, like an unhappy marriage, medical problems, stressful work environment, will create any number of health conditions from high blood pressure to damaged immune system. An orgasm will relax you and allow you the opportunity to reduce stress in your life without the use of drugs or alcohol.
Having an orgasm is one of the best ways you can improve your sleep and your health. There are no side effects either. Except maybe an afterglow and a great nights sleep.
