There are so many FMLs about people making life-changing or relationship-ending confessions during sex. Why do people EVER think that's a good idea? Is it just because they think that's the only way to have your full attention for an important announcement? A simple "we need to talk" would have sufficed. Fuck.
My guess would be that it has something to do with the chemicals released in the brain during sex. If I'm not mistaken, they're on par with those stimulated by regulated drugs. I was in a similar situation to the OP's partner and wound up confessing my love to somebody. Granted, I genuinely loved them and had been trying to figure out how to say it for weeks, but I didn't expect it blurt it out… mid thrust.
Yeah, I had to make a conscious effort not to tell my husband I loved him during sex when we first started dating. It was true and it turned out the feeling was mutual, but I still think it would have been super awkward. It's cool now that I can say, "I love you" to him any time and it's not awkward. Well, it's still a little awkward when he answers, "Dammit, Grace, I was sleeping."
That's why I don't talk about feelings during sex. I stick with subjects like math, "fun facts" and limericks. Funnily enough, I don't get much "repeat business", if you know what I mean.
