A recent study says that men feel sad after having sex. It says that men suffer from Postcoital Dysphoria (PCD) which results in sadness, tearfulness or irritability following sex.
The study appeared in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy.
“The study breaks down the results of an international anonymous online survey of 1,208 men from Australia, the USA, the UK, Russia, New Zealand, Germany and elsewhere,” said a researcher Joel Maczkowiack.
Men who participated in the study described their experiences ranging from “I don’t want to be touched and want to be left alone” to feeling “unsatisfied, annoyed and very fidgety”.
Whereas others reported feeling ‘emotionless and empty.
The reasons for this are multifactorial, including both biological and psychological factors.
