Sex Before Bedtime Can Lead To A Good Night's Sleep

While sex is an arousing and stimulating activity, it seems to cause a drop in body temperature, which makes it easier to fall asleep. Sex also appears to induce a deep sleep. Experts usually discourage exercise within a few hours of bedtime because exercise can be stimulating and actually make it harder to fall asleep, but the physical activity of sex seems to be a positive exception to that rule.
