Has anyone ever come across this problem before (NSFW)

Asked by MilkyWay (13685points) May 7th, 2016

When I thought about having sex for the first time I hadn’t taken into account how much a guy will sweat.
I soon found out that my guy sweats a lot.
This is my first sexual relationship, and some sweat is understandable, the kind you get when you go through a rigorous workout. But unfortunately he sweats to the point where he was dripping it constantly onto my face and we had to keep grabbing a towel to wipe it off every minute or so. I’m not exaggerating and you can imagine how frustrating it was. It was his whole body, it looked like he had just got out of the bath or swimming pool.
Has anyone else experienced this problem with any sexual partner? How does one deal with excessive sweating? I can’t simply just spray his whole body and face with antiperspirants so any advice will be much appreciated.
Any jelly caught laughing at my predicament shall be sent to the [REDACTED]

My ex-husband used to sweat a lot during sex. I mean A LOT. I really didn’t mind because I was so into him and also loved him. I think if it was someone I was not too into, it would be a turn off for me. I think sweat (the fresh kind of course) is sexy. If you don’t like it, perhaps get on top and you do the workout?

That must be like getting shagged by a giant bar of soap.
For him to be as drenched as you describe, i’m thinking overactive glands, maybe get him a velcro suit & if that works, stick to it

Back when there were wooden toys I had a hot girlfriend & I mean that literally. She had the metabolic characteristics of a hummingbird and was a bundle of interesting contradictions. For instance, she was a big time cuddler and even in her sleep would chase me around that bed like Ahab after Moby Dick. So….ventilation. There was a nice big fan on a tall stand across the room from the bed & sex was above the sheets. Winter was interesting.

I have experienced that too. While I initially think it’s sexy to have a hot and sweaty sex, it’s actually not, his sweat will exude a smell that I don’t appreciate all over my body and that will linger long after sex (the main reason I seek a shower right away). I find that the bigger and fatter your man the more he’ll sweat. If the room temperature is already warm to begin with, excessive sweating will be hard to prevent.

Solutions:

1. Hot sweaty athletic sex. Enjoy it while it lasts. It seems the two of you are sexually well paired. Don’t take that for granted. It doesn’t always happen in life.

2. Take the superior position. Sweat has mass and is subject to gravity.

3. Does your man do some type of cardio workout? He can get a majority of his sweating done that way.

4. Towels and hard running air conditioning. Sometimes sweat is just one of the costs of doing business, though sometimes in my past it was just as much if not more her ejaculate that soaked the sheets.

Have fun exploring sex. Play safe.

That much sweating to me would possibly indicate a medical issue on top of his enthusiasm for making love with you. That was me before I found out I had a high blood pressure issue. Going forward just take top and problem solved.

@MilkyWay: Is he overweight?

MilkyWay's avatar

For those who are suggesting me on top, I understand the logic. Even so we prefer it the other way around /,\
For those saying it might be a medical issue, yes I think we should consult a physician sometime in the near future.
@jca he isn’t obese but he’s chubby hehe
Also, over here in England the temperature is typically very cool, and we also had the window open. I did suspect it was overactive sweat glands when i observed him sweating very easily. Any physical exertion resulted in him breaking out in a sweat. So @Cruiser I take aboard what you said, we’ll get him checked out. Better safe than sorry.
And thank you all for answering I appreciate it ♡

I had a middle aged lover some years ago and yes, he too sweat a lot during vigorous activity. haha He was 48 at the time and I kinda worried he might drop dead on top of me a few times even though he seemed to be in pretty good shape.
I would be concerned as @Cruiser mentions, that he might have some sort of health condition beyond just base excitement and vigorous lovemaking. It seems rather excessive and potentially worrisome to me too. How old is he and what kind of shape is he in?

Does he drink or smoke?

MilkyWay's avatar

He used to drink and smoke a lot before, but he’s stopped now, its been over a year. I wouldn’t say he’s a very healthy person as he may be slightly chubby, but he does labour work which means he’s active. I’m going to ask him to get checked, blood pressure and all. Thank you dear.

In the meantime, you may want to wear scuba gear while having sex.
