Is Laughing During Sex Normal?

Sex is supposed to be fun and exciting. Not only does it allow an emotional release, it's also a way to relieve stress and share love with another person. The way you express yourself sexually and the way you react to the sensations that arise during intimacy is a very personal thing. It's normal to smile, moan, or scream "yes, yes, yes," but what about laughing? To find out


Not everyone is serious in the sack, and giggling is completely normal — laughing is just as common as any other emotional reaction. It may be a sign of nervousness, a reaction to being tickled, or a response to something funny happening (like the condom flying across the room when the guy tries to put it on).

But just because laughing during sex happens sometimes, that doesn't mean everyone is OK with it. So if your partner's laughter makes you feel uncomfortable, insecure, or self-conscious, talk to them about it ASAP. As always, open communication is the key to good sex, and if you're close enough to get naked, you should be close enough to talk about what happens when you do.

Ive definetly laughed during sex. When something's funny, why not? You should be comfortable enough to laugh with someone youre sexually involved with.

We do it every once in awhile. Once we were going at it and the TV was on. I think Family Guy was on and something funny was said. We both burst out laughing and stopped. It was hillarious and cute.

I laugh all the time.. I love being comfortable during sex.. it's not like a totally serious setting, you aren't reading a will, its supposed to be light hearted and fun. After my ex and I went to TGI Fridays (He refuses to eat at any place that isn't 5 star... so he called me ghetto for suggesting Fridays) We ordered every fattening, grease ladden food we could. So after we got home we got intimate so he kissed me and after I said, "Mmmm you smell like fried macaroni and cheese." and he stopped and looked at me and said, "Do you read a book about everything not to say during sex?" and then he covered my mouth with my hand and I started laughing sooo hard... and then he started laughing.... or when ever something awkward happens like you hit your head on the wall you just can't help but laugh!!

You should be so comfortable during sex that laughing is totally ok. Once, my husband was really into it and he didn't notice how close his head was getting to the wall and he totally smacked his head on the wall and he lost his "mojo", lol. I couldn't stop laughing and we both had a pretty decent laugh about it. If you're embarrassed about anything at all that could happen during sex (farting, laughing, weird noises, the way your bikini wax looks, etc.), then I think your relationship isn't really ready for sex yet.

I think that if you and your partner can laugh during sex then it means that you have a great relationship and are so comfortable with each other that you can just let yourself go and relax and enjoy everything thats happening

If something is funny during sex I have no problem laughing. I have burst out laughing during sex too many times to count.

Its normal. Just aslong as you are not hysterically laughing during sex. Cause that can be a turn off.

There's been a good kind of laughing during sex for me, and then the bad kind where things are just awkward and there's a tension in the air... haha so I guess it can be unpredictable for me.
