Question Just Curiosity

Why do we feel so lazy after ejaculating?
What do we expel when we ejaculate?
I know it's sperm but do we also also expel minerals or sugar or something like that?

Its caused by rapid changes in hormones. Its nature's way of telling you you need to rest before going at it again! All males experience this "anti-horny" feeling immediately after ejaculation.

I don't have ALL the ingredients of semen (there are many), but here are the major components:

1 - Water. Semen is mostly water by volume.
2 - Glucose. Essentially sugar, which feeds the sperm.
3 - Sperm - By volume, sperm count for very little of the semen, like only a couple of percent, but there are 250-300 million plus of them in an average ejaculation!
4 - Zinc. There's lots of zinc in semen, mostly secreted by the prostate. Doctors aren't sure why there's so much zinc needed.

I don't feel lazy after, but although I may not be in the mood for more sex tackling the job of cleaning out the garage doesn't seem so bad anymore! LOL!

Here's an alphabetical list of what's contained in semen. Not very romantic... but you asked! (By the way, in case you or your girlfriend was wondering, an average ejaculation contains about 15 calories. Who knew?!)

aboutonia, ascorbic acid, blood-group antigens, calcium, chlorine, cholesterol, choline, citric acid, creatine, deoxyribonucleic acid, fructose, glutathione, hyaluronidase, inositol, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, purine, pyrimidine, pyruvic acid, sodium, sorbitol, spermidine, spermine, urea, uric acid, vitamin B12, and zinc.

Why do we feel lazy after ejaculating? Sure, there are hormonal reasons I guess, but think of this: If a male ejaculates, feels tired, and then lies beside his lover, it may help to strengthen their bond. Perhaps this is a holdover from times long ago. Just a thought.
