This is something I’ve always wondered– got reminded of it by something someone said in another thread. Why is laughing during sex such a no-no? I understand that if one partner is laughing at the other’s lack of skills, or something like that, it’s not OK, but what if you both find something funny? Or if one of you gets the giggles? Or if you are so happy you just laugh for no good reason? Maybe it’s not a good thing to do because it’s distracting?
My SO seems to think laughing during sex is a rather awkward-seeming thing to do, but I don’t see why, and sometimes I find something funny– like if the cat is being annoying, or I say something that seems silly, or whatever–and I laugh.
Do you have reasons and opinions on why laughing during sex is OK/not OK? And why is it culturally considered inappropriate? Tell me please! 😉

There are times I’ve laughed when intimate. In fact, it happened the other day. Something was done or said that made me giggle, and he laughed too. We don’t think it’s a no-no! We’re human, after all, and when we see something that makes us giggle and laugh, we do.

Darling Husband and I laugh sometimes but it’s if we catch each other doing something. Like not to long ago we were in the process and I started cracking up at him because he had his orgasm and his face looked ridiculous and his hand was doing a weird thing that made me think back to the movie “scary movie” where the butler had that messed up hand and was like “take my strong hand” and it was his little hand. I couldn’t help but laugh. Darling Husband laughed too. Sometimes you just find things funny and you gotta laugh lol

My husband loves when I laugh during sex. He tickles me on purpose to make me laugh.
As long as you’re not laughing AT your partner, I don’t see the problem.

We laughed so hard our first time together (OK, we were both really drunk, too). But, we talked about it later and how we loved how comfortable we were with each other, and TRULY having fun. It’s our personalities and we laugh a lot together, why not during sex too? Try having sex with the TV on to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Not watching it, but catching a commentary or a song. We were both cracking up then too! Sex doesn’t have to be serious romance all the time.

I usually laugh at least once every time Fiance and I get intimate. I’m just so darn happy about the situation, I guess, and I can’t keep it in, haha. Fiance laughs occasionally, too, usually when we’re trying a position or something and it is just not working for whatever reason. He just kind of chuckles and says, ok, let’s maybe try this instead.
Also, sometimes something funny does happen. Once the dog woke up from his nap and came over and laid his head on the bed next to mine and was just staring at us, literally just a few inches away from my face. I couldn’t stop myself from giggling uncontrollably. Fiance had to put him outside the room so I could focus, lol.

Pretty sure Darling Husband have the most insane funny love life ever. I don’t know that sex is supposed to be as hysterical as it is for us but it works for us.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it depending on the mood. If things are getting a bit rough then maybe giggling isn’t the right reaction, but during making love I laugh with my partner all the time. It’s a happy time.

@Creiddylad: We’ve both definitely laughed during sex. Yes, it can be a little awkward, but it’s also kind of sweet in a weird way. I mean, if you’re so comfortable with this person that you can just burst into laughter while they’re inside you … That’s real intimacy, in my opinion.
I do agree that laughing at someone during sex is never appropriate. But if one of you says or does something funny, starts tickling the other, etc. … I say enjoy the moment and laugh!

We have both laughed during sex because of slip ups or something silly. I know I’m ticklish so there are times where I can’t really help it. DH just looks at me and shakes his head. Haha.

I not only think it’s ok but that’s it’s totally healthy and normal! Sure there are the times when it’s really hot and steamy or touchingly romantic, but most of the time it’s just a sexualized version of hanging out. Like when I’m making my way down to, ahem, there I’ll sometimes detour and start playfully making out with his tickle spots or even make raspberry noises on his tummy. He loves it, and it just tells me how comfortable and relaxed the atmosphere is.

@Creiddylad: I find that laughing at someone during sex is bad but laughing at a ridiculous sound that happened or just getting giddy with excitement and becoming giggley isn’t bad.
Perhaps your SO thinks that it detracts from the experience or that it suggests you’re not completely into it because you’re noticing outside happenings?
