Emotionally Awkward & Vulnerable After An Orgasm?

SexyLilPixi SexyLilPixi
So, somebody must know that feeling I'm talking about - Emotional sensitivity, awkwardness in those few seconds directly after a mind blowing orgasm.

Doesn't have to be about anything in particular, nothing has to be wrong. It's just there. Maybe it's the rush of endorphins being released.

I average around 4 orgasms a day on a GOOD day, and it usually happens to me at least once or twice out of that. Only for those intense few seconds afterwards. Then it becomes a pleasant, light-headed orgasm high.

Okay, maybe around six is a GOOD day. Four is just a lower-case good day. LOL
These are the days I get to play a lot.

They call this "post-coital blues". I've had it happen to me where I get super depressed afterward for some reason. I thought I was losing my mind or that my brain was broken.

I usually feel either high or sassy after an orgasm... or like I want to do it again

Can't say I have ever experienced that feeling

I've never experienced the post-coital blues either. Hope I never do, but at least knowing you're not going crazy is nice if it ever does happen!

I have felt that before, but it isn't a regular thing, and it never occurs when i'm with a partner.

When I have closer to what I feel is a g-spot orgasm, I ALWAYS start crying afterwards. I'm not sad, it's just a reaction or something. It freaks my boyfriend out because he thinks he hurt me (emotionally or physically) and I always feel awful about that. I always try to tell him through my tears, "I'm fine. Really. I'm just crying."

I've heard of this before too.

It's so weird, it's been happening to me since forever, way back. I really don't understand it. Even if everything is all fine & dandy, and it only lasts for under a minute.

Way too old for that - we're very comfortable in our relationship. More like to have a good laugh than cry - but mostly it's 'oh my - thank you, that was awesome'.

Getting old has it's advantages!

i've had that but only bc it was a one night stand or something. if i'm close to the person, i won't feel awkward or anything. i just relish the moment

I haven't had one, but I have had partners who have, and it seems kind of common.

Yep!

"Oh my God, that was incredible! Thank you!" Is heard in our bedroom a few times a week.

I've experienced the emotional sensitivity before, but not exactly like you're talking about. After orgasm my emotions are so intense that any emotion I experience will be much stronger. Usually that just means I'm really happy, but if I think of something even slightly sad I can start crying. Luckily that's only happened once, though.

Thing is, it has nothing to do with sadness or emotions for me. It's like my body is expelling every emotion it can go through for under a minute, and then it's that awesome after-orgasm feeling.

I do not have that kind of problem. I'm usually busy catching my breath and savoring the last bit of sensation from my orgasms.

I've had this happen, but not often. Very few times and it's not an intense feeling for me, I mean I don't feel an intense urge to cry or anything, but I get what you're saying. Mostly I think my moments with this seemed to have been at the very beginning of the relationship and I remember once with an ex I'd left my parent's house late at night and met him across the road and I did get that very intense feeling and busted into crying! EMBARRASSING! There was no warning. I don't know what happened and I was light headed like you said. I really was confused then.... it wasn't exactly good sex. Lol. But I know what you mean. It could wear off after you've been with the person longer if that's your case? I wouldn't say it's a bad thing at all though. While it may make you a little red cheeked, I would say you're normal. It just means you really get into it.

I've heard of other people doing this but I've never experienced it myself.

When I have a mind blowing orgasm, sometimes I cry. Not from sadness, but from the release of tension in my body. I think this freaks some guys out. Others smile and seem pleased with their work tho'. I feel very open to being hurt if a man can bring me those mind blowing experiences for some reason that I do not quite understand. Trust is a very fragile thing.

I had an ex-friends-with-benefi ts who would try to take advantage of this by trying to ask me to be in a relationship of some sort with him. I always felt it was a very manipulative and underhanded thing to do. I keep my guard up unless I am with a partner I can feel free to experience that post orgasmic emotional ride..

I have never experienced that and I'm so glad. How embarrassing and awkward- in my opinion-. If a guy I was having sex with started getting all emotional and weird I would get the fuck out of there as fast as possible. I don't like being around overly emotional people at all, so especially during/after sex, for me, would be a major turn off

I have a vagina and I have not experienced this. Usually the sensation I get is "I must cuddle you now because I'm so happy and content..." Although I have had moments I was so grateful I almost cried when I was dominant and my lover did something that showed exactly how much he trusted me in a BDSM scene.

I'm usually too out of it to care about what's going on around me. I only get one orgasm per session(self-brought of course) but it's enough to put me out of mental (and sometimes physical) commission for about 10-30 minutes.

The only thing I'm capable of thinking is: cuddle time now,clean up later.
