 Heart attack is another dangerous health condition that can lead to sudden death during sex. It occurs when there is a shortage of blood supply to the heart muscle. It mostly affect men that are over 45 and above. According to research, the widespread cause of death during intercourse is a patient having subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH).

 Drug Abuse

 We all know the prevalent issues in our community where youths abuse drugs and other substances ignoring their potential side effects which could be dangerous to health. If I tell you some things young people do when it comes to drugs and sex, you won't believe it!

 Alot of people abuse drugs to boost their performance during sex but this is very wrong. The use of illicit drugs could lead to sudden death during intercourse. Some individuals mix strong drugs (like narcotic painkillers) with alcohol. Some also combine sexual enhancers with alcohol. While some chronic drug users smoke marijuana or cocaine during the action. All in a bid for a climatic experience during copulation. But these hard drugs are only endangering their health. Most especially their heart.

 Excessive intake of narcotic painkillers triggers seizure, respiratory failure and death. Narcotic painkillers are not to be consumed with alcohol because they are central nervous system depressants. Also know that the use of cocaine causes heart attack, convulsions, respiratory depression, and sudden death. If you don't want to die during sex, avoid the abuse of drugs.
