Blinding Orgasm

Question:

A few years back my wife and I were on our third Honeymoon after a nine-month separation. She and I were both in our late twenties and had reacquainted ourselves with one another. It took a few weeks before I could manage to get time off from my new assignment. We had been having good sex again, but the third day of this honeymoon was surreal, and enigmatic! We had been going at it off and on for literally hours, slow and easy, unrushed. I had a bell ringer of an orgasm, and within seconds was completely blind! I wasn't hurt, and it felt like any other heavy orgasms I had experienced.

I have worried about this every time since.

Should I worry? What about? Have you heard of this before? Is it related to: Epilepsy, Grand-mal, Asthma, Heart murmurs, high blood pressure, PTSD, medical side effects? I talked to the Army doctors two weeks later, but I felt like they were just telling me not to worry. I was away again for a month, so I didn't seek outside help, and it never happened at all again.

Answer:

With about 35 years experience in the sexuality field, I long ago found that I would never reach a point where I was hearing new things. I have often said that as a client left I thought, "Now I have heard everything," but that only lasted until the next client began talking. I have heard of a variety of post orgasmic experiences... faintness; giddiness, weakness, and blurred vision... don't know that I have ever heard if total blindness, but then it does not surprise me. Neither, however, does it concern me. Apparently (although you did not say it) it was brief and you recovered fully. I would suspect, therefore, a chance short-circuit that is unlikely to ever occur again.

Obviously if you were having dizzy spells, fainting episodes, muscular weaknesses or tactile numbness at times both sexual and nonsexual, I would recommend you consult a neurologist... but this single isolated episode, while certainly dramatic, probably means nothing. You did not say so, but apparently since then you have had more orgasms, each I hope as memorable, but without the loss of vision.
