After an emotional conversation, even if it was calm and rational, my spouse always seems to want to have sex. Is this normal? I know my spouse feels vulnerable after these sorts of discussions. I don't mind it most of the time, but sometimes it is a little overwhelming; especially when I am trying to process information from the conversation. If I say I don't really want to or I need some time, the rejected expression makes me feel awful.
