There’s A Scientific Reason That Doing The Deed Makes You Sleepy

From XOXO to ZZZ …

Your partner is out like a light after a roll in the hay. Biology, not chemistry, may well be to blame. There are lesser-known “love hormones” ― i.e., not estrogen or testosterone ― that cause us to feel sleepy after sex.

We’ve partnered with Sleep Number to get to the bottom of this copulation correlation. Watch the video above, and consider cutting your partner some slack the next time snores cut short your post-coital cuddling.

Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support — your Sleep Number® setting. And when you add SleepIQ® technology you’ll know what to adjust for your best possible sleep.
