For what it's worth, and to offer a female's perspective, I feel horrible after having an orgasm. However, the reason for this is due to adrenal exhaustion. I have no libido, but of course still engage in sexual acts with my partner. If I "allow" myself to have an orgasm, I pay the price. For the rest of the day or night I gradually become more irritable, agitated, depressed, lack energy and motivation. But like others have mentioned as well, the effects don't stop there. I'm out of commission for at least three days. Just drained of energy. It's quite horrible. So, I avoid orgasms nowadays. I will allow myself to have one maybe once every two months.
My hormones are a mess... in that I'm not producing many at all. Low DHEA-S, low testosterone, low pregnenolone, you get the picture.
I'm on hydrocortisone(Cortef), and also have Lupus as well as Hashimoto's hypothyroidism. So, I may not be the "norm", but this has been my experience over the years. Before getting sick I had an awesome sexual appetite! I'd masturbate at least once a day to relieve stress.
Sigh... interesting thread going on here though...
