In brief: Exertional headache?
This may be indicative of exertional headaches, which can come in different forms/with different triggers.
I'd suggest talking with your doctor as this could certainly interefere with your personal life/relationship in significantly negative ways. Good luck!

In brief: Headache with sex
Over respiration during exertion or exciting status might induce headache.
You can try to wear a mouth mask or breath through pillow to minimize the symptoms.
