"Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Sex?: More Questions You'd Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Whiskey Sour" is the second book by Mark Leyner and Dr Billy Goldberg. It's just as funny as the first one and the cover question is certainly one that we've probably all wondered about even if we never actually put it into words. There is, naturally, a medical answer to this question, but I won't give it away. Suffice to say that it's not ALL their fault! Here's a few more, er...interesting questions: "W ...more

Meh. It was a fun idea but poorly executed. It wasn't funny even though they tried really hard. They also breezed through the interesting science way too fast. Fail.

In the true punk spirit of "contempt for the audience". I asked for people's book recommendations, and ignored them all.

There was a book on the Bestseller list recently called "Why Do Men Have Nipples?"

I saw this and wanted to check it out, of course. Books like this (to me) are instant bestsellers. Any kind of quirky information sells, it's why and The Straight Dope websites are so popular and I think why John Stossel's last book sold so many copies.

Stossel, the poor man's Geraldo a

Recommends it for: Everybody. It's a fun, easy read.
Answer: Orgasms cause certain hormones to be released that, coupled with post-coitol exhaustion, generate drowsiness. Why men and not women? No, not just because they are more exhausted! But, also because it appears that some guys sometimes have sex with girls without causing them to cum, therefore not causing the drowsiness. Poor girls, victims of their own poor taste.

Anyway, the book was actually pretty well full of interesting tidbits. Some bits were a little mundane, and then there's the sec

How I Heard About It: I've randomly seen its predecessor, "Why Do Men Have Nipples?" and was slightly interested. It wasn't until I receieved this book as a gift that I really got into it.
How I Procured It: My friend Richard gave it to me for my birthday, and promptly embarrassed me in front of all my dinner guests.

Chat log intermissions from the making of the book are hilarious, however the content is an "interesting fact" catalogue with very few questions that were things I didn't already know. Not to be haughty, but my education may have gotten in the way of truly enjoying the otherwise truly interesting facts. The presentation was extremely well written.
Sep 08, 2014 Tiffany rated it it was ok
First off, this is not a book I would normally read. The hubby picked it out and so I thought why not? I struggled to get thru this book. There were a few parts that I thought were funny but I felt like it read like a health book written by 2 high school/college frat boys. I almost gave up on it. I give it 2 points because there was a slight few parts that I laughed at.

Interesting, informative, entertaining. Leyner and Dr. Goldberg answer difficult to ask health questions in easy to understand language with a touch of humor. Admittedly, not as entertaining as the previous title, Why Do Men Have Nipples?, but just as informative.
Inge (Inge1990)
It is a fun book with useless facts based on questions they got from readers. The facts are actually quite well described and scientifically true. The most bizarre questions are answered in the book and the answers are fun to read. However, they also put in some personal communication between the two authors... I think this is really unnecessary and actually I found it quite annoying... I still need to read the other book (why do men have nipples) I hope it will be as much fun as this book. I wi ...more
Jan 10, 2008 Juliana rated it liked it
"Why Do Men Have Nipples?" was fantastic. Interesting questions and a clever "instant messing" conversation format. Very cleverly done, combining intelligent answers to questions we've all wondered, with witty dialogue between the writers. "Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Sex?" is not quite as enjoyable as it's predecessor. The questions and answers are all very interesting, but the format that was so fresh in the first book, began to wear thin by the second. The short stories that began each chapt ...more

Better then the first at the beginning of the book when it comes to humor, but just as lacking in the answers to the questions in the book, and it starts to annoy towards the end.
Apr 26, 2013 Vanessa rated it it was ok
In the internet age there really isn't much of a reason for this book to exist because you can easily get online & search for the answers for embarrassing questions you don't want to actually ask out loud. I do it all the time :-) However, for sporadic (ok, bathroom reading in all honesty) reading it's kind of neat to have all sorts of wonky questions altogether like this. I didn't bother too much with the IM sections, they seemed pointless, made-up and dumb however I did like the introducti ...more

Full of smart and funny answers to an onslaught of new questions, all in a do-ask-we’ll-tell spirit that entertain and teaches you something at the same time, Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Sex? offers the real lowdown on everything everyone wants to know about all things anatomical, medical, sexual, nutritional, animal, and mineral, but would only ask a physician after a few too many, like:

• Why do you have a “bionic” sense of smell when you’re pregnant?

• Does peeing in the shower cure athlete’s

Because they have to do all the work. :o) More of less that's why. I actually liked this book better than the first. It had more variety of questions in it. And I skipped all the boring author conversations so that helped speed things along. While reading I was thinking of how I could make this a fun, witty entry, and now that I'm on here and half asleep again, because I broke my rule about reading these books in the a.m. hours, I can't think of anything fun to stick in here. Oh well. Maybe next ...more

This is what I call a prime example of a "Bathroom Read". Gross as it sounds, this book's purpose to ask all those random questions people have like:

Is it true that you cannot die in a dream?
Can you get herpes from a hot tub?
Why do your ears pop on an airplane?

The answers are funny, informative and interesting. This sequel to "Why do Men have Nipples?" continues to provide us with more answers to life's most pressing questions. In the end it's the perfect book to pick up whenever you have a mom

Two guys got together and compiled all those embarrassing questions people ask doctors when they’ve had a few (the questioners not the doctors). The queries are thought provoking and the answers go into all the excruciating detail you could ever wish. At some points you might think, “Whoa! Too much information!” but for anyone who wants to know why this happens or why something is that color or where that smell comes from, this is an amusing, insightful book and a wonderful conversation piece at ...more

Shelves: interpersonal
This is a sequel to "Why do men have nipples", which I haven't read, and it was ok. Lots of silly, nonsensical banter between the two male authors between the questions that I skipped after the first few chapters, and I think they thought they were a lot more amusing than i found them to be. Some interesting questions, but mostly I just skimmed through it. Then again, I don't know that I'm a big trivia fan, so maybe the format just turned me off. Easy, quick read.
Oct 22, 2008 Charlotte rated it did not like it
This is the sequel to "Why Do Men Have Nipples?" which I also read and reviewed. It is, incredibly, much worse than the original (which was pretty bad, but I gave it two stars because it was occasionally interesting). This one is neither interesting nor funny nor remotely worthwhile. It is childish and gratuitously profane and feels even more phoned-in than the first one. Very disappointing--I'm glad I didn't buy it, but I wish I hadn't wasted two or three hours reading it.

I am still reading this book, but find the random and sometimes useless information interesting and entertaining. I was pleased to have the age old question of why men don't listen answered . . .

Having finished the book, it was entertaining and interesting. I am a useless knowledge junkie though so it probably appealed to that portion of my personality. I was a little annoyed that some of the question remained unanswered, but all in all it was a good read.

The very things I enjoyed most about the authors’ first book were the same things that completely annoyed me this time. I found myself skimming over the “clever” IM conversations between the authors, as well as the painfully unfunny introductions of each chapter. What remained, happily, were the same easy-to-understand answers to life’s most burning questions. I now know the exact measurements of a blue whale’s…um…boy parts. My life is now complete.

Not as good/novel as the first. The IM conversations really started to annoy me in this book.

This is apparently a second book by the same authors. When I skimmed over their crazy dialogue via Instant Messenger, the questions they addressed were actually really interesting. Silly certainly, but interesting nonetheless; they even answer the title of the book! A fun, quick read for those that always wanted to know why women have to urinate more frequently than men or why does milk come out of my nose when I laugh too hard?
Sep 21, 2008 Lisa rated it liked it
The sequel to "Why Do Men Have Nipples" was very fun and educational, but it didn't leave quite the impact that the first one did. Some questions include: Why don't women have adam's apples? Does milk really cause increased mucus? Are dog's mouths actually clean? When you pull out a gray hair do 2 gray hairs come back in its place? Why does it feel so hot outside when it is 90 degrees if our body temperature is 98.6?
May 24, 2009 Sarah rated it liked it
I didn't love this one as much as the original, perhaps because this was a bit longer and slightly more tedious. I definitely didn't enjoy the longer introductions to each chapter, though I liked the greater variety of chapters. Once again, there were some things in here I already knew and others I learned. Still an enjoyable read and good for some useless knowledge and a laugh.

Well....sort of liked the first book. Struggled with this one. Some good facts.
Jul 10, 2009 Tony rated it it was ok
This book is funny, at least the answers to the questions are. I could have done without the pages of made up dialogue between the two authors. Basically, this is a continuation of their first book, "Why do men have nipples?" in the same format and answering funny/silly/ridiculous medical questions in the same funny/silly/ridiculous manner.

Leyner employs an intense and unconventional style in his works of fiction. His stories are generally humorous and absurd: In The Tetherballs of Bougainville, Mark's father survives a lethal injection at the hands of the New Jersey penal system, and so is freed but must live the remainder of his life in fear of being executed, at New Jersey's discret

“So where does the name Adam's apple come from? Most people say that it is from the notion that this bump was caused by the forbidden fruit getting stuck in the throat of Adam in the Garden of Eden. There is a problem with this theory because some Hebrew scholars believe that the forbidden fruit was the pomegranate. The Koran claims that the forbidden fruit was a banana. So take your pick---Adam's apple, Adam's pomegranate, Adam's banana. Eve clearly chewed before swallowing.” 3 likes
