Curious about the evidence that arousal and climax can cause measurable shifts after sex in mood, perception, satisfaction and desire? Start here.
Also see Neuroendocrinology and sex for evidence of post-climax neuroendocrine shifts, and Other physiological shifts for evidence of additional measurable changes. Don’t miss these pages either: Too much? and Post-climax cravings.
All of these changes may underlie the shifts in mood, perception, etc. gathered in this section.
