    • I’ve heard of it happening before. There was a woman in college that all the guys used to talk about...if anyone “spent the night with her” she would always pass out after the big O...apparently it wasn’t a problem for anyone, including her!

    • Did a search on it today and it says that persons passout  when the blood stops going to the brain during the climax. The person is usually out for a few seconds or the person hyperventilates and passes out...Dont know which catagory I fall into...I will have it checked out.

    • Well Victorious, he must be ringing your bell like Quasimoto! LOL.

      But seriously, I did a little research myself:
      Yes, it's possible, but rare. Known by some as Le Petit Mort, "the little death," a phrase that was sometimes used in Victorian erotic literature, sexual arousal and/or orgasm can cause some women (as well as men — but it usually applies to women) to experience a sudden, temporary loss of consciousness. While this is not the norm, there are some logical explanations as to why this can occur. As people become sexually aroused, their breath shortens and quickens. For some, their breath becomes so rapid that they hyperventilate. When this happens, the normal levels of carbon dioxide in the blood fall, which may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or actually result in fainting. Too much alcohol can also have the same effect, and may even elevate the possibility of this reaction.

      Another explanation is that the brain doesn’t receive enough oxygen and other nutrients because of reduced blood flow. This happens because sexual arousal causes blood to flow from the brain to the genitals. This may produce an altered state of awareness or, some say, a true loss of consciousness. Some people intentionally deprive the brain of oxygen to heighten sexual pleasure and orgasm. This practice of auto-erotic asphyxiation - by oneself or to a partner - can result in accidental death.

      Fainting after orgasm could also be a symptom of a serious health condition, such as an abnormal heart rhythm. During daily activities, people with this condition may feel fine. However, when they exert themselves during exercise or sexual activity, their heart can’t maintain adequate blood pressure. When the exertion ends, their heart rate decreases, but the blood vessels from the muscles remain dilated, causing them to feel faint or pass out.

      If fainting happens to someone you know, or to a partner, laying flat is usually all that is needed to recover. Raising the person's legs can increase blood flow to the brain and to the heart. Once the person comes to and feels better, slow movements towards an upright position will help her or him get on her or his feet. To be safe, it's a good idea for anyone who repeatedly has these fainting "spells" to talk with her or his health care provider.

    • I tend to disagree with Mokah42, most women would be satisfied to reach orgasm - period, but if I lost consciousness at any point in time more than once, I’d be making an appointment with my doctor post haste!

    • use to have it quite often.  the more physically active our love or sex session was the greater the climax and the likely chance of this happening to me.  through sheer exhaustion i would get that feeling of total and complete inability to move.  i also found that if i am so highly turned on, and there is a break in our lovemaking then i am in a parylised state cannot move.  sex can relax me so much that its like being on a drug.  i am so one minded, so in that space and so enjoying whats happening that i have a disability to pull my mind out of that pleasure easy.  it takes me time. and i also have a tendency to just fall into a deep sleep once its over.
