Does Having Sex Cure Headaches?
Reading the above headline “Does having sex cure headaches?” you would think that this whole story is from a study a man ran. Well that may be the case, but it’s from a credible university. This may sound fake but 110% true. Having sex does cure headaches. So drop that aspirin and possibly your clothes…
According to a new study by the University of Munster in Germany, having sex can lead to “partial or complete relief” from migraines. So how did they possibly test this? In the study, more than half of people with migraines felt significantly better after sex. 20% of people say they didn’t just feel better but that the migraine was totally gone.
So fun fact, sex was actually more effective at beating migraines than traditional painkillers. I’m sure it’s cheaper too! So why does this work?
According to Counsel & Heal, researchers say the main reason is that sex triggers endorphins, which work as natural painkillers. These endorphins released during sex act on the central nervous system to reduce or, in some cases, eliminate the headache.
Be sure to practice safe headache sex.
