A woman was rushed to hospital after suffering a stroke while receiving oral sex from her partner.

The 44-year-old, of west London, passed out as she was nearing orgasm and scans later revealed a blood vessel had burst inside her skull.

Despite only suffering a ‘moderate’ headache when she came round after three minutes of unconsciousness, she was taken to A&E in an ambulance.

Medics didn’t directly explain what caused the stroke – but said changes in blood pressure during sex are ‘well-described’ as a cause of bursting blood vessels.

The unnamed woman was treated at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, in the London borough of Hounslow.

Her partner, whose sex is unknown, said they noticed ‘her body was stiff’ when they were performing oral sex on her.

Doctors recording the woman’s case wrote in the medical journal BMJ Case Reports: ‘On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness.’
