We hope that we never have to suffer a stroke, but if we do, we hope it’s while we are well on our way to an epic orgasm like this lady.
According to NYPost, this is exactly what happened to a 44-year-old New York woman who was rushed to the hospital after the oral sex she was receiving caused her to suffer a stroke.
The unnamed 44-year-old was enjoying the fruits of her lover’s labor when she lost consciousness for two to three minutes.
He rushed her to the hospital, fearing she had suffered a fit.
When they arrived, the man told medics his partner’s body had gone stiff during the episode.
She felt sick when she arrived at the hospital and was suffering a nasty headache, which she scored as a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale.
Her agile-tongued partner told doctors that she had gone completely stiff during oral sex, which is ironic because you’d think it’d be the other way around, but we digress.
Doctors led by Yunus Gokdogan at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital wrote in a BMJ case report: “On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness.
“Her partner estimated she was unconscious for two to three minutes, with no convulsive activity reported. She had otherwise been well preceding the event.”
Upon having a CT scan, it was discovered that the woman had a “trace of acute subarachnoid blood” which is the type of stroke that causes bleeding in the brain.
The patient’s bleed was caused by a small aneurysm, a bulge on a blood vessel like a balloon or bubble that bursts.
Gokdogan’s team warned that rigorous activity — including passionate romps — can cause aneurysms to burst.
They wrote: “Known risk factors for rupture include activities that involve sudden increases in blood pressure and sexual activity is well described as a precipitant.
“During sexual activity, blood pressure as well as heart rate, is very labile, with particular rises during orgasm.”
Fellas, be careful out here. You think you’re doing an A1 job at finding the man in the boat, then *boom*
