When my boyfriend and I have sex, I tend to shake/shiver a lot afterwards. Like, I'll hold up my hand and it will be visibly shaking.

My boyfriend and I are confused as to why I keep doing this. I always tell him it's because we have really great sex (and I love the emotional connection and feeling of overwhelming contentness most of all).

Am I right and I'm just really enjoying it and responding with shaking (we get VERY few chances to have sex, since we both are really busy with classes and jobs, and live in the dorms with roommates that never leave... or leave on the nights we are the MOST busy and then are there when we have nothing to do), or is it something else?

Same thing happens to me every time! My boyfriend and I rarely have time to get intimate as well. I wonder if it's just post-orgasm tremors...or...something. All I know is that the sex is always good, so it definitely isn't terror...

I definitely get that too. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. I think it may be from the rush of adrenaline. I get similar shakes after I take my inhaler, exercise, or get scared (like if I think someone is going to walk in on us [Razz] ).

Me too. I think I might lose my toes someday from curling them up too much during climax...

Orgasm is mostly a neurological event, so neurological effects really are normal. [Smile]

This happens with my legs after sex. Great stuff! The hubby loves it. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

I had sex for the first time today actually, and got the shakes after. My boyfriend was petrified he'd done something wrong, but I assured him otherwise.
I got similar shakes after he brought me to orgasm performing oral sex. And I got the shakes giving him a hand job for the first time -- but I think taht actually made it better [Wink]

I think it's normal, I spose. And I'm glad I am not the only one. [Smile]

I'm gonna say if so many people have the same thing happen to them afte sex(including me), then it's not that bad. It does make you wonder just what in your mind decided to make you shake afterwords...i guess it doesn't really matter. [Smile]
