Monday Mojo - Death by Orgasm

normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute. For both men and women, the heart rate averages 140 beats per minute at the point of orgasm.

Nelson Rockefeller died while having sex with his mistress. Even the mighty Attila the Hun fell victim to a heart attack that caused his early demise … on his wedding night no less.

Volunteers having sex in a laboratory setting have a significant increase in  pulse, blood pressure and respiratory rates. In other words, the heart works harder, pretty much along the same level as with a moderate work out.

What’s really interesting is when similar studies are conducted among married couples in their own bedrooms; heart rates don’t increase during sex! In fact, on average, married couples had  a LOWER heart rate than recorded during normal daily activities.

The risk of death during sex with your spouse is small, especially if you exercise and/or have sex regularly.
I think I went into the wrong line of work.
I should have become one of those people who research sex.
