The easy answer is that having sex is hard work! How long or how often you both have sex will certainly effect whether he is falling asleep as well. Keep in mind that after a long day of work or classes, physical activity of any sort might wear someone out.
Additionally, when a person experiences an orgasm, a hormone called oxytocin is released. This hormone, sometimes called the “love hormone,” has a calming effect and may just be the cause of his sleepiness.
The bottom line: Whether he’s worn out from a long day or the sex itself tired him out, there is nothing wrong with catching a few Z’s after doing the deed!
Good luck and be safe!
