Have You Ever Made Your Man Cry From Sex? Adrienne Houghton Has.

Celebrity News

There are so many pivotal moments in life that will make you cry genuine tears of joy: a beautiful wedding, the birth of your first child, an emotional episode of Grey's Anatomy, and according to science, even some really bomb sex. In an intimate discussion about intimacy on yesterday's episode of The Real, the hosts confirmed that if you've ever shed a tear because the D was so bomb, you're not alone, sis.


Although Jeannie Mai said she couldn't relate, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adrienne Houghton said they have no shame in their crying game during sex. In the past, Adrienne has been candid about the thrills of married sex with her husband, Israel Houghton, revealing that they don't go more than 12 hours without banging it out, but yesterday, she filled us in on how real it can really get. Although it's not a Viola Davis-style breakdown in the bedroom, it is a reflection of the pure joy and bliss you're experiencing with your partner. Adrienne explained:

"Literally a tear just comes out of your eye. It's not emotional."

Adrienne admitted that she's not the only one who's been so overcome with joy in the bedroom that their tear ducts couldn't take it. She's revealed that she's also seen her man cry after sex:

"They're just overwhelmed with how much they love you or how bomb you were…they're just like 'that was amazing!'"

While shedding a tear or two while getting your freak on may feel weird at first, both sexperts and scientists say that it's totally normal.

In fact, sex psychotherapist Sarah Nasserzadeh, Ph.D. says that crying during or after sex is just "emotional sweating". Good sex can be hella relaxing, and that level of comfort can cause all kinds of emotions to run up and through you. While sometimes, sadness after sex can also be an indicator of a deeper, underlying issue like post-coital dysphoria, or PCD, (which requires serious, professional attention), according to Adrienne, crying isn't always a sign of sadness.

In the same way that you would cry during a deep yoga session or a massage, your tears just serve as a form of emotional release, and those emotions aren't all necessarily negative. Experiencing a deep connection with a partner during a sexual experience causes the release of oxytocin, which increases your level of bonding, empathy, and trust, and crying can be a genuine sign of gratitude or appreciation.

So if you ever see your man's eyes sweating with tears of joy after an intense romping session, rest assured, those ain't allergies. You just put it down.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
