I am a 25-year-old woman who has been dating a 40-year-old man for 7 months. The last three times we had s3xual relations, he started laughing uncontrollably when he reached 0rgasm and couldn’t stop for 5 minutes! At first I almost killed him but then he explained to me that it has happened to him with only 2 other women. Can you tell me why this happens?

There probably is an answer to this, laying somewhere within the tremendous changes in blood chemistry and overall physiology at the point of orgasm, but I don’t know it. I do know that he is not alone in this (although it is certainly infrequent among men and women). Another response is that of crying. My explanation is simplistic. I feel that it has something to do with the explosive release of intense emotion. Beyond that, I’m stumped. At least it is good that he is expressing a happy emotion and is not laughing at you.
