Why am I crying during sex?

I've never cried during sex. But with this guy, I do. What's this all about?

Divorced for 6 years (had been married for 18), completely non-sexual for over 7. With ex-husband (and maybe 10 partners before him), I kind of enjoyed sex but it never, ever felt like an expression of emotion; it was more of a release.
I've been dating this guy for about 3 months and since the first time together, it feels different. Most of the moves are the same as everyone else I've been with except for this: when we're fooling around (and when we have sex), he asks me to look at him. So I do. But when I do, I get completely choked up, such is the overwhelming rush of emotion I get. And postscript, the sex itself is just completely, insanely hot. We both feel really comfortable and open.
After a post-sex conversation recently, he said that making love with me is completely exciting and fun and all that, but he feels very connected. It feels special and new and all of that glowy "I think I love you" stuff.
And this is new for me.
So tell me, does this kind of overwhelming rush of...I don't know...I almost want to tell him I love him...emotion happen to anyone else?
What does this mean? I really like it, but, it's new. And scary.
