When I was in my late 20’s I sometimes cried briefly after an orgasm. It was the late 60’s and Margaret Mead, described the time in New York as a time of sex, drugs and rock and roll. I avoided the drugs. For those too young to remember, Margaret Mead was an American cultural anthropologist who featured frequently as an author and speaker in the mass media during the 1960’s and 1970’s. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Barnard College in New York City and her M.A. and PH.D. degrees from Columbia University. That bio is by Wikipedia. She was a professor at Columbia University.
During this time in my life I was involved with several different kinds of Pop Psychology: Gestalt Therapy, Primal Therapy, Encounter Groups, Family Therapy Training. My sub-conscious was opening and my sexual energy was beginning to work up through the chakras. When the diaphragm begins to relax its restraint on the sub-conscious, energy can flow up through the body bringing more health and vitality.
Later when I was doing psychotherapy sessions clients reported being embarrassed when they cried after orgasm. I explained that this was a normal phenomenon that few people ever discussed. People often cry after orgasm when their sexual energy is working its way through the barricade between the second and the third chakra. It is a positive sign of growth and development physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. And this phenomenon usually is over in a few months if people continue opening up.
As we do techniques to open ourselves whether it is psychotherapy, Qigong, yoga, meditation or other emotional, mental and spiritual techniques our sexual energy can travel further up through the chakras opening the solar plexus for free child emotions, the heart for greater love, the throat for greater harmony and beauty, the third eye for greater wisdom until finally there can be crown orgasms and the experience of Oneness with The Divine.
