Dear Poll: Do You Actually Have Makeup Sex?

The thrill and passion of makeup sex has long been thought of — in the movies at least! — as one of the wonderfully pleasant consequences of a fight. In reality though, most fights don’t end in a torrent of released sexual tension, but maybe it’s something you have to set up from the get-go. In any case, it seems more like a relationship anomaly than regular occurrence to me. So do any of you actually have makeup sex?

My husband does that. It's weird. Like he gets pent up after a fight and then he wants sex. Like some sort of an animal. Really it is. I don't get it. I usually walk away disgusted. But he keeps asking. Then I tell myself it's better than silence for a week. I really am not in that frame of mind though. A fight is a fight with me. After sex I can still be mad.

There is no way I could ever have makeup sex. I'd end up punching him in the face. We don't really have fights like that anyway.

Hahaha! OK I'll try that. I'll... find something? He's tidier than me. Maybe I'll bug him about his WoW habit. ;p

Fallen ~ aaah! that's exactly what happens here all the time, it's so awesome ;) fluffyhelen ~ try picking a little fight over something useless ('WHY must you always leave your laundry hanging around? WHY?' and give him a shove) just for the sake of what comes after. believe me, it's worth it ;)

I've had sex straight after making up . . . . but never made up as a result of sex.

Seriously, my man and I were arguing the other night about me trying to make him go for dinner with this friend of mine he doesnt really like and while I was b!tching he took of his shirt and I completely lost my train of thought. Needless to say, we skipped dinner. Yay for make-up sex... which for me is just another word for "distracted while fighting" sex.

i have to say that i'm not really the break up sex kind of person and that's kind of a shame. i think that when my fiance and i get into fights - we just stay in separate rooms until we're done being mad and then we go about our day as it was before the fight - there's no release of tension through sex or anything. i think that the ideas great but not likely/realistic for us.

I haven't had makeup sex in forever! Me and my boyfriend NEVER fight about anything. If there is a disagreement then one of us usually compromises for the other. I usually win though... \o/

It wasn't that much different to normal sex.

That guy is hot! :-P Fallen: "Also, yes to make-up sex but seriously, my man is so fine, i would have sex with him WHILE fighting if given the option." ROFL!!!!! hahahhahahha! :-D Sometimes I don't feel like it, too many left over emotions after fighting, even if we have made up. Sometimes I do though, and the ex and I had some make up sex here and there, it does make you remember how much you love the person, I like that part a lot. :)

I picked no; just like the additional comment, the last thing I feel like doing after an argument is having sex. The emotions I feel when I want to have sex are the complete opposite of my anger/fight emotions.

my husband and i are the two most stubborn people so maybe the fight has been over for hours but sex is the last thing on our minds cause neither of us would make the first move for it

totall have the make up sex and it's awesome. i don't think it happens during the fight but as soon as thing calm down a little we end up doing it and it is very passionate and comforting at the same time it's just a little "hello I'm in love with you still"

To be honest, we don't fight without some sort of sexual undertone ;)

No, I wish I'd EVER had that... in my last relationship, the fighting led to more fighting, and some of the fighting was over how he couldn't be bothered to have sex with me... sigh.
