So I have often heard that if you have a cold or a headache, this can be solved with sex. Personally, I’ve never tested the theory out but definitely wanted to try and learn.

is it true?

  • Well, it's simple chemistry of the brain. Researchers from the University of Munster in Germany have found that sexual activity was successful in treating migraines in 60 percent sufferers and in one-third of patients with headaches.

    This is because the release of endorphines from the brain soothes the pain - naturally, this is not the same for everyone - for example, when my wife has a headache or a migraine, sex is out of the question - but when she has period cramps or bowel pains, it helps her feel a little better.

  • An orgasm is a build up of tension which is released all at once. Headaches and some muscle pain are tension, and sometimes that tension gets released at the same time. It might be a temporary release though as the underlying cause of the tension isn't corrected.

  • I think it’s the endorphins released like a lot of things— running or hugging or getting good news feeling loved succeeding at something important helping someone getting a compliment… positive experiences have positive impact on our immune system.

  • I think you could just pass the minor ailment to your partner.

  • Couldn't hurt. My wife thinks that. Last time she had the flu she was all snots and looking rough like a crackwhore. I refused and she took off her pyjamas in front of me, rubber vaps on her bare chest as I watched, turned around and stuck her fat bare ass in the air. Yeah I f*cked her for about 2 minutes.
