Here you are again, in an oh-so familiar place. You told yourself it would be okay, that it was no big deal. You scroll through your phone to see if he has viewed your story. As much as you try not to think of him, you do.
As much as you try to control the situation and emotions, it just seems that those emotions are just a little bit stronger, and now they seem uncontrollable. You are left questioning why that, every time it seems like casual is a good idea, it somehow turns out to be a little more than you bargained for.
Before you continue to seek out every conclusion possible, know there is a biological explanation for what you are experiencing. You can contribute the way you are feeling to some vexing but necessary hormones that are important for reproduction and evolution.
The more we have sex with someone, the more these hormones make us feel bonded to that person, until we realize our view was obstructed. This is because when we feel attracted to someone or have a sexual desire towards someone, dopamine is the main activator in the pleasure center of our brain. When we are doing things that we enjoy, dopamine is released; it produces feelings of satisfaction and pleasure.
During the excitement phase of sex, the dopamine is produced and fully released at the moment of orgasm. Because orgasms give you the highest dose of natural dopamine, some scientists have compared it to the brain pattern and excitement experienced by heroin or cocaine users. Once peak occurs, prolactin takes control. Prolactin is known as that afterglow or zzzzz moment experienced after orgasm and is also attributed to why men tend to fall asleep after sex.
Prolactin can explain why, after reaching orgasm, there is sometimes a disconnect between partners, causing them to pull away from each other. Oxytocinon the other hand, is known as the bonding hormone.
Oxytocin produces feelings of emotional intimacy, trust, contentment, attachment, and relaxation between people. It causes the reduction of anxiety and fear, allowing for the feelings of safety in the arms of your partner. Because women produce more of this hormone, their defences are lowered and they tend to trust people more. Therefore, they are more likely to let their guard down after sex.
Why is this important? In doing so, you can understand why you are experiencing the emotions you are feeling. You may unsubscribe at any time.
