Sex won’t give you a heart attack

Unless you’re enjoying it:

However, the situation might be different for those who are being unfaithful. A 2012 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found men were more likely to experience ‘sudden coital death’ – a fatal heart attack during sex – while having sex with someone other than their wife.

  1. Nelson Rockefeller found dead with his shoes on the wrong feet and the tag end of his belt on the right side (the way a woman would thread a belt)

  2. The Laughing Cavalier

    There is an old joke about a Frenchman recovering from a heart attack asking his doctor if it is safe for him to have sex again. The doctor tells him that is is OK with his wife but not with his mistress.

    Wait- i’ve been wearing my belt wrong? Like a woman? Does that count as transvestisim? If so, can I get an arts council grant and a column in the Guardian?

    Interested – “Perhaps men put their backs into it with their mistresses.”

    Having sex with someone other than the wife is expensive, dangerous and generally risky. No point doing it if the sex is as boring as it is at home.

    TonyC – “Nelson Rockefeller found dead with his shoes on the wrong feet and the tag end of his belt on the right side (the way a woman would thread a belt)”

    It seems a reasonably common way to go for politicians. Palmerston died banging a maid on the billiard table. Australia lost a former Prime Minister who was found dead in a sleazy hotel wearing nothing but a use contraceptive device.

  5. “Would that fatal heart attack be caused by a kitchen knife wielded by the woman’s husband?”

    It’s long been my ambition to die of gunshot wounds in bed with another man’s wife (One reason for living in Spain, with it’s relaxed firearms laws.) But I’m taking careful consideration of the above and, in future, will try & avoid enjoying the activity.

  6. Australia lost a former Prime Minister who was found dead in a sleazy hotel – hmm dunno about that, but they really did lose a prime minister at sea.

    from wiki (Harold Holt).
    but was Prime Minister for only 22 months before he disappeared in December 1967 while swimming at Cheviot Beach near Portsea, Victoria, and was presumed drowned.

    MyBurningEars – “Billy Snedden was indeed found dead with just a condom. But he was an ex Liberal leader, not an ex PM, wasn’t he?”

    My mistake.

    “He’d been having sex with one of his son’s exes – curse of the younger woman – and she fled when he died.”

    Makes yer proud to be …. err … connected by ties of history and common culture?

    johnny bonk – “hmm dunno about that, but they really did lose a prime minister at sea.”

    Bill Byrson says they named a swimming pool after Harold Holt. Makes you wonder what they named after William Sneddon.

  8. Want to know the definition of a mistress?

    It’s somewhere between a mister and a mattress.

    Thank you, and good night. I also do Bar Mitzvahs.
