Sex with a partner is 400% better

All lovers feel that sexual intercourse with orgasm is better, more satisfying than an orgasm from masturbation alone. But how much better ?
In biology terms, following orgasm, our body releases a hormone called prolactin, which make us feel satiated. In a recent study, (Biological Psychology, vol 71, p312), scientists shown that after orgasm from sexual intercourse, the increase in blood prolactin level is 400% higher in both men and women, when compared with after orgasm from masturbation.

You knew prolactine also has a soothing effect that makes one feel sleepy? The more prolactine is released the sleepier you feel, that's why people (specially men, for some chemical reason) often fall asleep after reaching the orgasm by having sex and not by masturbating.
(400% sleepier =P)
