Why Do I have To Think About Lesbians To Fall Asleep?
Q: Aaron has to fall asleep a certain way. He has to think about lesbian romantic relationships to calm his mind down. He asked our Dr. Cooper why that would be? What is that about?
A: This is an area that is not studied as much as it should be in the world of sex and sleep. That’s because sex researchers study sex and sleep researchers study sleep, and there you go.
We do know that masturbating before sleep does not have the same effect as having sex does in that sex before sleep reduces stress and helps people with insomnia fall asleep and stay asleep. That’s because the hormones that are released help you relax and flood your brain with good chemicals. Specifically, the hormone prolactin which is a natural sleep aid.
HOW FANTASIES AND SLEEP WORK
We know very little about sexual fantasy and sleep but what’s probably happening with you is that you need to focus on a story about other people in order to shut your brain down and get it ready for sleep. For many men, thinking about something they themselves would be physically involved with, like a hot girl, is distracting. The opposite of relaxing. So, your brain has worked out a calming scenario that does not interfere with thoughts that could keep you awake. And since you’ve been using the lesbian scenario for so long, those are the pathways that you’ve created in your brain.
HOW YOU TRAIN YOUR BRAIN
Pathways in the brain are made by connections between neurons so, when you do something or think about something enough the connections are made. Sorta like grooves in the road map of your brain. Yours is lesbian relationships. It’s unique to you. As far as what to do about it? If it ain’t broke don’t fix it
