Oxytocin. It's the bonding hormone. Released during childbirth, breastfeeding, and orgasm. It causes a feeling of attachment which is usually directed at the person inducing its release.
I double-checked, and sure enough, the person who said that sex doesn't cause falling in love was a guy. Yeah, it's a stereotype. Because it's frequently true. Women have a stronger ability to produce it, making it more likely for women to fall in love after having sex.
I'm not saying that every woman falls in love whenever she has sex, nor am I saying that men never do. I'm just saying that it's not uncommon for women to fall in love following coitus.
