In brief: Sexy heart

A few things could be happening.
Sex releases natural chemicals that can speed things up. They include natural opiates like endorphins and Adrenalin that can cause rapid heart beat. Adrenalin can also cause your blood sugar to drop (hypoglycemia), which can also manifest with these symptoms. I would also rule-out underlining heart disease as a preventative measure- do this first!
