Dear Yvonne, Sometimes my girlfriend will laugh during sex, which weirds me out. Is it because I'm doing something wrong? - Tad
Dear Tad, Sex is a fun activity (and if it isn't a good time, at least most of the time, you seriously need to question the relationship and what you're doing). Inuit Eskimos refer to sex as "laughing time." So is it any wonder that lovers aren't always serious in the sack?
Sex involves feeling good, expressing yourself, and sharing amazing, positive moments with somebody you care about. Laughing can be a great compliment because it indicates your lover is letting go of stress and getting into the moment. While many people worry that their lover is laughing at them, it is more likely that such an expression is due to tickle sensations, disbelief at what is being experienced or simply joy.
