Extremely short of breath and yawning after sex?

My boyfriend who is 41 years old and in decent shape gets extremely short of breath during and after sex for a long length of time, 15-20 min.  He also yawns uncontrollably during this time.  He seems like he is really struggling to breathe and I'm always concerned he will pass out!  I know it sounds like a good problem to have :)  I am concerned that he may have a heart condition or lung problem.  Any ideas on what is going on?  I've asked him to see a doctor but I just want to have some ideas for him to talk to his doctor about.  Thanks!

It would be a good idea for him to see his Dr and just be honest about being out of breath during and after sex. His Dr will know what tests to do. Even though he's young at 41, you can't rule out heart or lung problems. It's best to get checked out.
