Have you ever felt like you wanted to cry during sex? Not out of pain or dread, but out of pleasure, safety and emotional release?
If so, you are not alone!
Welcome to the crygasm!
Many people feel the urge to cry during sex, but because it is not usually spoken about publicly, they hold back their tears and shut down the emotional experience. Since publishing this episode, we have heard from SO many people who have experienced crygasms and felt ashamed of the experience. Learning about crygasm as a “thing” can help you realize that this is a natural part of sex and can feel really cleansing and clearing!
To our knowledge, sex pioneer Annie Sprinkle was the first to coin the term “crygasm” to refer to the cathartic release of emotion during orgasm.
In this episode, we talk all about crygasms.
