    who cries during sex?!? sex is fun!

    I almost NEVER cry- last time I cried was 3 years ago and I was shitfaced at my best friend's wedding at the time. It occurred to me that both of my best friends were moving a long ways away and that my engagement was falling apart really badly at the time (and I realized that I'm a dirty old man magnet!). I think I would have been fine had I not consumed over a bottle of wine over the time

    I hadn't even read the replies to the thread when I posted. My side comment was not directed to you, or to your lack of crying. I don't think it's good or bad for people to not-cry.. everyone has their own ways.

    What pisses me off is when people brag about their not-crying (whether they truly do or do not) as if crying is such a bad thing. It usually comes from guys trying to be super-macho around other guys, or when a girl is around a lot of guys and tries to act like them too hard. I don't think there's anything impressive about not crying.

    Crying during sex is actually not that uncommon, whatever.

    Many feelers cry when they feel intense emotion.

    Crying doesn't always connote discomfort.

    I'm nearly lacking in Fi

    Never cried during sex- though I've laughed during it plenty of times

    Perhaps growing up hanging out with the guys can discourage a person from crying because if you cry you're a total pussy?

    Then again, I'm a dreadful, insensitive NT, so perhaps that has something to do with it

    I've never seen any reason to cry if you're having fun, though I rarely have sex with someone I love either. It's like when my sis and mom cry at happy things- I just don't get it! It's happy God damn it! Laugh or smile- don't cry! Crying is what sad people do!

    HAHA that reminds me of the time I tried having sex with my ex while we were on LSD. The whole concept of sex was so ridiculous that we couldn't actually go at it without getting into laugh attacks.

    I speculate that there are different kinds of sex...pity sex, break-up sex, etc.

    OP asked what goes on in your head when you cry ... It's purely a nervous system response. Sometimes it surprises me as much as it surprises anyone else. It has nothing to do with thinking. It's something my body does. Emotion overload, stimulation overload, frustration, empathy, pity, art or music that's too beautiful to bear, something that strikes me as perfect...lots of things. Anything that overwhelms me with feeling.

    Intentional meanness and bragging about being intentionally mean, if I see too much of it, will eventually break me down to tears but that's true sorrow, and mostly I don't cry about that, it just aches. That more causes depression over long term than tears.
