I know that everybody is different. But for me, it seems I can't get back to a normal emotional state after orgasm unless I shed tears. I tend to get really irritable and anxious, otherwise. And the stress just continues to build. Is orgasm and depression related? Or is this just a normal clearing of stress hormones (prolactin?) that needs to happen for the mind to get back where it needs to be faster? (same results, regardless of whether porn is used or not) If prolactin rises after orgasm and dopamine drops, would tears (the release of prolactin) raise your dopamine faster than without tears?
