Does anyone --else-- sometimes cry after sex?

Please share.......

erm. no. Why would you cry? Assuming it is not abuse of any kind, of course.

no... sorry.

I have done once or twice, usually when very hormonal.

StitchingMoss Mon 25-Jul-11 22:17:14

Yes, I have done. Overwhelmed feeling - can't really describe it! blush

Bumpsadaisie Mon 25-Jul-11 22:18:07

I understand this - sometimes I feel really emotional/overcome (ahem) and the tears leak out! Usually when its been particularly close.

Ingles2 Mon 25-Jul-11 22:18:33

yes,but especially when I'm pregnant I find. Heightened hormones and emotions I's just a release like laughing.

MrsHicks Mon 25-Jul-11 22:19:05

Yes, I do sometimes. It's just a release of emotion. Not necessarily a bad crying. Google 'release emotion crying after sex' - it's totally normal. (Which isn't to say everyone does it, just that you're really not abnormal if you do)

Yeah i used to with my ex h. But he wasn't capable of making love and was obsessed with having sex, even if i didn't want to.

I understand other responses are about feeling overwhelmed in a good way rather than a bad way.

Are your tears, happy tears or sad tears?

StitchingMoss Mon 25-Jul-11 22:22:53

Very much happy tears.

fuzzybunny Mon 25-Jul-11 22:24:58

It has happened a few times now, only since having babies. No control over it, but would kind of like to no why as this time DH looked at me like I must be having an affair or something to be getting so upset in such an unusual time. confused

Ivortheengine8 Mon 25-Jul-11 22:25:31

No but my DH quite often gets a fit of the giggles! blush

5inthebed Mon 25-Jul-11 22:26:20

grin Ivor

fuzzybunny Mon 25-Jul-11 22:27:17

I think happy tears, or sad that it's over.

fuzzybunny Mon 25-Jul-11 22:29:59

I like the release of emotion idea.

Ivortheengine8 Mon 25-Jul-11 22:35:21

grin 5inthebed - I thought he was really weird the first time he burst out laughing after he had ....

Can make you paranoid so I wouldnt do it personally !

Hi fuzzybunny, I do sometimes.
It has only happenned with my current partner though and I didn't know what was happenning at first. It does feel like a rush of released emotion, I feel overwhelmed with the emotion - feeling all spiritual/vulnerable/overcome with the closeness.
I am a bit weird perhaps..

spudulika Mon 25-Jul-11 22:54:41

Used to happen to me. Not any more - sex not so intense physically these days. sad

Do still get tearful sometimes, but it's usually because I get overwhelmed by love for DH. Think about all our years together and hope for many more.

Yeah once in a while if I've had an especially intense orgasm I find that tears are welling up in my eyes. It's just some weird limbic response. Overwhelmed with emotion is the right way of putting it. When it happens I usually feel like laughing euphorically at the same time.

In fact sometimes when I orgasm I do laugh euphorically too, without the tears.

Sorry for TMI.

Yeah lots of times post orgasm but only after intercourse (as opposed to post other generated orgasms)

ShowOfHands Tue 02-Aug-11 22:37:25

Once. My one time achieving an orgasm. I was so overwhelmed I sobbed frantically. DH assumed he'd broken me somehow.

GreenTeapot Tue 02-Aug-11 22:41:27

I should really namechange ... yes, me too, only with DH, and it's rare. The first time it happened we hadn't been together that long and he thought I was about to finish with him! It's very much a happy thing though. Weird.

garlicbutter Tue 02-Aug-11 23:51:49

I've cried in a good way - rarely - after the most amazing, soul-lifting sex.
I've also cried during and after marital rape angry

I did both kinds of crying with the XH, not on the same occasion, obv.
Yes, I would say "release of emotion" ;)

BertieBotts Tue 02-Aug-11 23:58:03

Yes agree on both counts. The happy, OMG-that-was-fantastic-I-can't-even... release of emotion thing, (DP was really worried and kept asking if he'd hurt me, it didn't help that I couldn't speak!) and also once with XP where I wanted to stop halfway through but didn't say anything, mainly because I didn't think he would stop anyway, and then it felt like he was raping me (I say 'felt like' because he didn't know that I wanted him to stop) - but yeah I cried after that. He didn't notice. sad

Yes ... after very intense wonderful sex. Pretty sure it's a limbic response .. but it's wonderful smile
