Woman Almost Dies From Stroke Triggered By Oral Sex

The woman suffered a brain bleed as she neared orgasm.

A British woman had to go to the hospital after an intense impending orgasm triggered a stroke.

According to a new report from the British Medical Journal, the unidentified 44-year-old woman suffered a “transient loss of consciousness (TLOC)” while receiving oral sex from her partner.

After the woman was unconscious for two to three minutes after the sex, her partner got nervous and took her to the emergency room at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.

Once there, the man told doctors his partner’s body had gone stiff during their session. The woman told doctors she had a headache that she described as a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale, according to the The Sun.

At first, doctors believed, based on the symptoms, that the woman had suffered a seizure.

Doctors later learned she had experienced a blackout caused by a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain, also known a reflex-mediated syncope, according to IFLScience.com.

“On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness,” the authors wrote in their report for the BMJ.

A CT scan and a CT angiography showed she had an aneurysm, leading to a subarachnoid hemorrhage ― a kind of stroke.

The researchers said it’s not unheard of for orgasms to cause stroke.

“Activities that involve sudden increases in blood pressure and sexual activity is well described as a precipitant,” they write in the case report. “Studies with intra-arterial monitoring during coitus demonstrate that during sexual activity blood pressure, as well as heart rate, is very labile, with particular rises during orgasm.”

The report said doctors treated the woman with a procedure called endovascular coiling, which uses a catheter to transmit a tiny coil to seal off the aneurysm from blood flow. She was released from the hospital 15 days later.

Four months later, doctors say, she’s suffered no further problems.

Couple caught on video engaging in “sexual activity” with a dog named Demon, police say

SUFFOLK

A couple engaged in “sexual activity” on camera with a dog , according to court documents.

Richard Allen Patterson, 46, of the 2400 block of Freeman Mill Road was suspected of illegally having guns in his house, which led a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent to watch video on a computer seized from Patterson’s house, the documents said.

The ATF agent saw Patterson and his wife with the Doberman pinscher in their master bedroom, a Suffolk detective wrote in a search warrant affidavit. The agent alerted Suffolk police.

Richard and Christina Patterson own the property where the agent seized the computer, according to public records. Neither has been charged .

Suffolk Detective Sgt. Gary Myrick filed the search warrant to see the video during his investigation into “crimes against nature.” State law forbids someone from carnally knowing “in any manner any brute animal,” or submitting to such acts.

Doing either is a felony punishable by one to five years in prison.

Suffolk police are looking into what happened but won’t talk about their investigation, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said in an email.

Patterson, a felon, has been indicted with having 17 firearms – including handguns, shotguns and military-style rifles – that he had shipped over state lines, according to federal court documents. He also had 52 shotgun shells, 44 rounds of .40-caliber bullets and 10 rounds of .357 ammunition, federal prosecutor William Jackson said in the indictment.

In June, Patterson was convicted of three felonies: forging public records, perjury in Department of Motor Vehicle matters and larceny. He was sentenced to six years in prison, but a judge suspended all of it.
