In brief: Here are some...

Your Q is scientifically specific, but would not clinically applicable for all humans since the degree & duration of feeling relaxed & tired after orgasm widely vary among all humans reflecting their age and overall general health since coitus is a process of very heavy mental & physical drainage; so the elderly can afford to have sex as often as they age.
More? Ask Doc.
