Me and my boyfriend have been intimate for a few weeks now, and I've noticed a couple times after we had sex my legs are really shakey when I walk. I look this up yesterday and I read something that it could be "aftershock", but I have never orgasmed with my boyfriend.
At least I don't think I did? the legs shaking thing doesn't happen every time,but if I did orgasm, it doesn't feel like when I masturbate at all. In fact I never even noticed if I did when I was with him. I mean it always feels good, but I never get nearly the same intense feeling like when I masturbate. Is it possible I orgasmed and didn't realize it?

Orgasm doesn't always feel the same. Not when we're having sex with ourselves -- like, an orgasm from masturbation on Tuesday may not feel the same as one from the same thing on Saturday -- or with others.

I don't know what "aftershock" is or where you read that: that's not language I've ever heard used in any model of sexual response.

So, you may have reached orgasm with your boyfriend, and yep, it may feel different in some ways than with yourself. Or, it may be that this is how you feel post-arousal with sex with your boyfriend, or feel because you haven't reached orgasm with him. Or, it may be your legs just feel like this from staying in one position for a certain period of time.

But ultimately, this is one of those things where someone else isn't likely to be able to tell you much, but where, instead, you'll suss this out over time by just observing your own feelings and patterns.
