    I’ve cried during and after, not because I was upset though. It was because I was overwhelmed with love and emotion! My Darling Husband is the only one ive done that with though

    @Hyperventilate:  +1, I’d probably leave if someone started crying (I don’t deal well with emotional people).

    @Equine_Breeder:  Yes, once during sex. Happy tears because we’d been apart a couple of weeks (and PMS) so I was super emotional.

    And I’ve laughed during orgasms a few times too 🙂

    Negatively, I cried once (during).. I struggle with seizures and hit my head on the headboard while having sex. My FH, then boyfriend, stopped, asked if I was okay, I said “yes, yes. Don’t worry I’m fine.” But then I started to feel really panicky and short of breath like I was going to have a seizure and started bawling. No idea why I reacted like that, it didn’t even hurt that bad. Weird. Now we’re definitely more careful about where my head is placed! 

    One time I did cry after. But not sob tears, just trickle tears. Does that even make sense? I had just gotten off of BC pills. I had to switch pills due to mine being recalled. The new pills I was on really dulled everything, sex drive, orgasm, everything. I finally went off and after a few months was back to my normal self. So that first orgasm after was cry-worthy. 

    I think if he cried I would honestly think something was really wrong, but I wouldn’t be too disturbed by it. Especially if it was after.

    Yes to both during and after, several times but always happiness, just an overall overwhelming, high emotional experience. Nothing negative at all, never from sadness. Kinda freaked Darling Husband out the first time, he thought he’d hurt me… but he has since come to understand it more.

    @peachacid:  Dying.

    @peachacid:  Ha!

    Yes, after. Because my ex chose the moment right after he came to break up with me. I think my tears were justified.

    @Miss Circe:  Ahh, seriously?? What a jerk.


    I cry during or after sex occasionally, just ’cause it heightens my emotions and makes me feel safe/loved. So I tend to think it’s a natural time to let go a little, if I’ve been really stressed and holding in a cry. Fortunately, I’m a “pretty cryer” (for non-bawling situations), so it’s cute and doesn’t kill the mood. This only started happening a few years into my relationship with SO because I’d cried sad and angry tears once or twice with stupid ex, so I bit them back and worried that I was upset with SO the first time it started happening.

    first time i had sex, i cried right after.  it was with a boyfriend and i was so full of emotion, i didn’t know how to respond and crying is what came out.

    yes, during or after. orgasims can bring on big emotional rushes. I’ve also been known to giggle uncontrollably after. either way, I think it’s normal.

    Yes because it hurt LOL. I’m quite small and he is quite large. After some time without it, it hurts like a bitch!

    a few times afterwards but i don’t think my SO has noticed more than once. i always feel awkward when i cry but it’s usually just a few tears. the time SO knows about was my first time orgasming after many many months of trying and thinking i wasn’t capable. the other times were when it was just really intense and amazing and i couldn’t help it
