During sex (karezza or more energetic sex), I occasionally go into a state which my partner describes as corpse-like. I’m not conscious of this shift, but I do notice it when she mentions it. I guess I notice the transition on the way out of the state. She feels disconnected when I enter this state. The shift is sudden as if I black out. Physically, I’m totally still in the state. At least once, I’ve not responded to a kiss by kissing as if I wasn’t aware that I was being kissed. I’ve drifted into this state for at least 20 minutes. It seems that there’s some internal disconnection or elevation to some other place. My partner wonders if I’m internally processing during these states. I report enjoying this state once I come to. That said, I don’t seem to know where I go or what is happening there, She’s pretty sure I’m not sleeping in a typical sense. If in scissors, she senses I become a dead weight.
Has anyone had similar experiences? I’m not an experienced meditator so I don’t know if there’s a connection. What about tips on how I might better access this space to figure out what is going on? Any suggestions as to how I might bring my partner into this space so that she doesn’t feel I’ve gone away to somewhere she can’t go?
