A few times during sex with my fiancé I have ended up crying (once it was during oral and the rest was during intercourse). He always asks me what's wrong, but nothing is wrong!

I'm not sure why this happens. Has it happened to you? And how do I convince my fiancé that nothing is wrong?

We have heard many people on here asking this question, so you are not alone in this.

Some people cry during very emotional experiences, even if it's not something wrong. Sex can result in intense feelings. If you are nervous or not comfortable enough (or moving too quick) your body might give you signals of this by crying - but if you are enjoying yourself and are feeling comfortable but just very emotional then it is not something to worry about.

You can explain to your boyfriend that the reaction is kind of like how some people cry with happiness. Any intense emotion can trigger crying in many people.
