If you’ve been wondering why guys go to the bathroom after hooking up, you’re not alone. Jennifer Landa, chief medical officer at BodyLogicMD, and author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women explains that sex stimulates dopamine neurotransmitter. This sends feel-good chemicals throughout your body. Another hormone that results from sex is Oxytocin. It increases after an orgasm, and causes guys to want a nap.
Urinating before and after sex reduces your risk of contracting a urinary tract infection (UTI), a potentially life-threatening disease. However, not everyone follows this advice, and many men are still unaware of the importance of urinating after sex. Some guys may feel the need to go to the bathroom quickly, but they don’t have to rush or worry about reaching a specific time.
