What is Post Nut Clarity?

The moment after you break a nut or climax is known as post nut clarity, a sensation of clear-headedness that helps you make more sound decisions. It also helps you avoid making irrational choices while you’re horny, which is why it’s important to recognize and understand post nut clarity so you can better navigate your thoughts and feelings in order to make healthier sexual decisions.

This is a feeling that’s primarily experienced by men, but it can occur for women too. According to the resource millennials turn to for contemporary definitions, Urban Dictionary, post nut clarity is the immediate clear-mindedness or soberness you gain after orgasm. It can also be a sense of mental reset, depending on what caused you to orgasm.

For example, for some men, the experience of post nut clarity is brought on by masturbation or sex. For others, it’s a result of a hook-up. It’s not uncommon to feel guilty or regretful after an orgasm, especially if it was achieved in a way that contradicts your morals or values.

But while many men can anecdotally attest to the sensation, is there a scientific reason behind it? We reached out to two urologists to find out. Both weren’t super sold on the idea, but they did offer some potential neurophysiological explanations for why some people might experience post nut clarity. For one, they explained that ejaculation is often associated with decreased activity in the prefrontal cortex, which is known for being responsible for decision-making and impulse control.
