A 51-year-old Japanese man almost died from masturbating as he suffered a life-threatening stroke moments after ejaculating.
It was gathered that the single elderly man was in the habit of pleasuring himself several times a day. However, during one of his self -pleasure sessions he suffered “thunderclap” headaches and severe vomiting.
He managed to check himself into the Nagoya University Hospital in Japan and CT scan confirmed that he had subarachnoid hemorrhage, a case of sudden increase in blood pressure which causes bleeding to occur in the fluid-filled spaces of the brain.
The man who suffered a life-threatening type of stroke that was caused by a blood vessel in his brain rupturing as a result of his habit, survived the ordeal but was made to stay in the hospital for two weeks before recovering.
