Some men feel tired or slightly weak after they ejaculate.
In fact, itâ€™s more common for men to feel a little sleep after sex and orgasms than women â€“ at least anecdotally â€“ but the reasons for this sex difference are not entirely clear.
So yes, with repeated ejaculations, some men may feel more weak but thatâ€™s not to say that sex or ejaculation is bad for a man.
Sex can be a very physical act, however, and there are various hormonal activities that occur during orgasm for men and women, so there are likely several reasons why a man may feel slightly fatigued after sex with or without ejaculation.

Iâ€™ve been having sexual fantasies about acts I would never consider doing in real life. Is there something wrong with me?
