Sex Fact #440

Sex is also a pain reliever, ten times more effective than Valium: immediately before orgasm, levels of the hormone oxytocin rise by five times, determining a huge release of endorphins. These chemicals calm pain, from a minor headache to arthritis or migraines, and with no secondary effects. Migraines also disappear because the pressure in the brain's blood vessels is lowered while we have sex. So now we see that actually, a woman's headache is rather a good reason for having sex, not against it.

  1. This is utter bullshit.

    If you knew what a migraine was like, you would know that trying to have sex with one is impossible.

    While orgasm may be 'relief', the strain of getting there is tremendous and any migraine sufferer will tell you that.
