Major Causes Of Death During Sex

Medicalnewstoday published an article discussing the causes of death during intercourse. Here are the key points:

1. Drug misuse is one of the causes of death during intercourse. Individuals may use drugs to enhance their performance, but this may lead to premature death. According to healthline Combining drugs such as opiate painkillers with alcohol or intimacy enhancers can be dangerous, especially for chronic drug users. This can lead to hypotension, which can be lethal.

2. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is another cause of death during intercourse. SCA occurs when the heart suddenly stops pumping blood to the brain and other vital organs. Research indicates that about 17% of the almost 7,000 cases studied involved physical or intercourse closeness between the parties. Those who experienced an Intimate-Related SCD were around 38 years old on average, with around one-third of the affected individuals being female. More than half of the individuals had a heart condition, with sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) being the cause of death in the other half.
