Thanks. It turns out, on rare occasions, people sometimes fall in the shower and hit their heads and die. I find that most of the articles on Care2 are very informative and useful. Unfortunately, this wasn't one of them. The benefits of a healthy sex life (both physical and emotional) far outweigh any obscure risks....studies have proven that.

Our religion forbid masterbation , and everything to be balanced, and carefullness is needed in all aspects and urged for exercises which decreases the incidence of heart attacks 45%.

Very interesting , think it depends also on the effort done in sex.

Well, you know, sex is a beautiful thing to celebrate. Sex should never be abused. It's such a beautiful celebration that if you're going to go, may as well go happy! I just hope it's AFTER the orgasm...

Could you imagine, dying just before that? The other spirits & angels would see you coming, and state, "wow, she looks tense"...

Fascinating, keeping in good shape with plenty of exercise while following a balanced diet should help prevent one from having a heart attack during sex. It does happen on occasion.

Am never sure why in many of her comments that Teresa W considers sex as the most disgusting thing in the world...if it weren't for this act most of us would not be here. But to each their own I guess...
