A 51-year-old man from Japan admittedly enjoyed pleasuring himself several times a day, according to the new case study published in the medical Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases. However, one explosive self-pleasure session went terribly wrong when, after climaxing, he was struck by “thunderclap” headaches and severe vomiting.
The man rushed himself to his local hospital, where he was found to have low blood pressure and confusion — two telltale signs of a cerebrovascular accident, according to the medical case study.
Emergency medical technicians suspected he had a stroke while stroking — and a subsequent CT scan confirmed that the man had indeed suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), a potentially fatal type of stroke sparked by ruptured blood vessels in the space surrounding the brain.
The man survived his near-fatal orgasm ordeal and was released from the hospital after two weeks in excellent condition, according to doctors.
