Why Men Die While Having Sex?

At times death occurs during lovemaking for several reasons. Let’s not discuss the situation when an illicit relationship gets caught to result in a violent incident. One may also die while having sex for medical reasons.

Recently a 65-year-old man was reported to have died in Bengaluru while having a secret sexual relationship with his maid. He is suspected to have died of cardiac arrest caused by ‘extreme orgasm’. An aged person at times cannot bear the extreme stress of a sexual act. If it is an illicit relation like the one in which the Bengaluru old man was involved, then the mental stress adds to the problem.

In 2011, a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association remarked that each additional hour of sexual activity per week increased the risk of heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths.

Another study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2011 said men who were unfaithful in their sexual relations were more prone to cardiac arrests during sex.

Sudden cardiac death can happen in patients suffering from coronary artery disease.

Deaths during consensual sex are only 0.6 percent of all sudden deaths. But incidences of such deaths increase because of the use of sidenafil citrate or Viagra by men. And elderly men are more prone to it.

Majority of deaths during sex are of men. The use of other recreational banned drugs like cocaine can cause death during lovemaking.
