Man almost died of a stroke while masturbating

According to doctors, it is rare but likely for a man to suffer an aneurysm after having sex

A 51-year-old man almost died from a stroke he suffered while masturbating.

Unwittingly, this man’s incident has become a medical case study.

The scientific journal Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases published a study where a more than extravagant case is addressed: a man from Japan almost died from a stroke he had after an orgasm.

The man, whose name has been withheld, admitted that he compulsively masturbated several times a day. One day, after touching himself, the man felt a severe migraine and vomiting.

He went to Nagoya University Hospital with two common stroke symptoms: confusion and low blood pressure.

Suspicious, he underwent tests that confirmed the doctors’ assumption: the man had suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a potentially fatal kind of stroke caused by the rupture of blood vessels around the brain. The stroke, doctors concluded, was directly related to masturbation.

The patient remained hospitalized for two weeks before being discharged. Although the case has caused a great deal of media attention, doctors say it is a rare but not impossible event.

Previous studies have reported that, in similar patients, intercourse and masturbation were the activities that immediately preceded an aneurysm in 14% of patients. Some drugs, such as cocaine, and some sexual performance enhancing drugs have also been documented to increase the risk of stroke following sexual intercourse.
