Ok this might be a weird question, but have any of you ever passed out during sex? The other day me and my fiance were doing our thing and suddenly my body went numb and I totally blacked out for like 3 minutes! It was weird and kind of amusing (after I woke up)... but definitely not the most pleasurable experience. I wonder if there's something wrong with me. But in any case I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone or if I'm just.. unique.. heh

i've fainted immediately following sex. it wasn't a great feeling. i don't know quite what happened, either. one moment, i was fine. then i felt gut-wrenching pain in my lower abdomen. then i blacked out. i came to after a few minutes and was fine after that. *shurgs* i have yet to figure out what that is.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it just happens to some people. I think that one old french slang for an orgasm was "le petit mort" which comes across as "the little death" - get whatever connotation you want to out of that...
I think one of them was though because some people did pass out from it, and it seems like they died when they orgasmed...

I remember a friend telling me about having that happen to them once. But they said it wasnt because of the sex it was just because they had already been exhausted before having it. She wasnt exactly the most sensible about what she was doing at that moment in time she didnt think about the fact that when your exhausted maybe she shoudl get some eneergy before doing that.

If you find you love someone more than you love yourself, I hope that person feels the same way.

Le Petit Mort...

Yeah, it's "The little death." They used to believe that if you had an orgasm, it'd shorten your life by one year.

Of course, this is just all hearsay...

I've passed out before, it was rather amusing. I really didn't mind too much, and I woke up within 10-20 seconds or so.

If passing out is something that's happening on a regular basis, or especially if you're unconscious for extended periods (ie. several minutes), it might be something worth mentioning to your doctor. Just to make sure that it's not caused by something physiological that might be dangerous (ie. a mild seizure disorder, or something else neurologic, etc.)

hey
the 'little deaths' thing also appears in English poetry..the Metaphysical poet John Donne was -very- keen on using puns, and often used death/die interchangeably meaning death or orgasm. anyone who's into poetry, check him out - the love poems are amazing. religious not quite my thing.
my friend has a semi-amusing story regarding unconsciousness. she was very drunk, having sex with her boyfriend, she blacked out, he didn't realise {!!!!!} and carried on. then she came round. and threw up all over his room.
delightful, i know...

...which, incidentally, is part of the reason why we do not condone such behavior here at Scarleteen.

Hmmm... Interesting. Well it's good to know I'm not the only one! I think I got a serious head injury from that little episode. I fell of the bed and bumped my head. Hey that rhymed! I'm such a nerd.
