Hi, I've been sexually actuve for sometime now, but only recently have I been experiencing those 'earth-shattering' orgasms everyone reads about in books. I'm slightly worried though - when my boyfriend and I are together and I do get one (which isnt often, but then I' not expecting it to be so), my eyes go quite blurred and it's like a sort of pink 'fizz' creeps into my eyes, the colour of pink lemonade.

It really scared me the first time - I actually started crying much to my boyfriends horror! We've chatted about it and things, and I don't think it's affecting me detrimentally health-wise, but I just wanted to know if anyone has had this before or heard of it? Why does it happen? Should I be worried?

Thanks in advance for reading and/or replying [Smile]

EDIT: I've just reread what I wrote and it sounds like I've got burst blood vessels in my eyes or something - I assue you I don't, we checked lol. And I'm not that unfit - I hope!!

Hi Lozzy57,

People experience all sorts of physical changes during orgasm:

Is this something that ONLY happens during orgasm?
Does it pass soon after the orgasm is finished?
Are you a normally fit and well person with no history of vision problems or trauma to your eyes?

If so, you probably dont have anything to worry about. However, if it worsens (turns into any kind of sudden vision loss, happens at other times, is associated with other symptoms like headaches, is painful, etc) or if you have other concerns- talk to your doctor about it. They can also have a look at the front and back of your eyes.

Faintness, giddiness, weakness, and blurred vision are all normal reactions after an orgasm, according to Dr. Robert W. Birch.

Check out his answer to a question similar to yours here: Blinding Orgasm
