Men more prone to stroke during extra-marital-sex

London, March 2 (IANS) Men who cheat on their other halves are more likely to die during sex.

The revelation emerged from a report published by the American Heart Association, looking at whether patients with heart problems could safely resume their sex lives after treatment, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

The study found patients could resume sex as soon as one week after a relatively mild heart attack, as long as they could walk up a few flights of stairs without discomfort.

One caveat is sure to raise a few eyebrows. It turns out that married men having affairs, have an increased risk of sudden death during sex.

This is because they are often with younger women in unfamiliar settings, which adds extra stress.

The scientists, led by Glenn Levine, from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, said autopsy reports of nearly 6,000 cases of sudden death found 0.6 percent happened during sex.
