Man goes BLIND in one eye after powerful orgasm during intercourse

Man goes BLIND in one eye after powerful orgasm during intercourse

A young man recently landed in hospital with a case so bizarre that his case made it into history.

The British Medical Journal is finally giving more detail on a case where a 29 year-old male went to the emergency ward when he realized that he had an “obstruction in the central vision of his left eye, which he had noticed on waking that morning.” But it wasn’t the morning that had caused him grief, it was the night before.

Doctors and specialists are now saying that the man had blinded himself with a “Valsalva maneuver,” which is where a person tenses up their abdominal muscles while holding their breath. This intensity increases pressure in the chest and the pressure was great enough to pop a blood vessel in the man’s left eye.

When the man first went to the hospital to complain, doctors figured that it was a popped blood vessel due to “vigorous sexual intercourse,” but it wasn’t until a few days later that the man saw a different doctor for a follow-up visit. This doctor was a bit more frank in asking explicit questions about the patient’s romp and the diagnosis was clarified to be due to a valsalva maneuver. The situation was strange enough and rare enough that it ended up being cataloged in the British Medical Journal where it was dubbed “postcoital valsalva retinopathy.” For any possible future sufferers, you should be happy to know that the condition is usually expected to resolve itself within a few days. So far, while only one in 10,000 people will have amnesia related to the Valsalva maneuver, there has been only one case where the maneuver has popped a blood vessel in their neck.

You might have trouble remembering that, though, because blood specialists say that the Valsalva maneuver can cause memory loss.

There’s no word on whether or not his partner had any such similar experiences that evening.

A few months later, Emma Philips was forced to endure emergency surgery when she realized that the pink toy being shared between her and her beloved had disappeared. For whatever reason, the 24 year-old decided to grace us with a Facebook update describing what happened:

“When a bit of Saturday morning playtime results in spending the day in Wrexham hospital having a nice pink vibrator surgically removed from your bowel areas…. whilst it’s still vibrating. If you can’t on a Saturday when can ya? When the doctors X-rayed me, they decided the toy was too far up to remove without sedating her.”

Well then.
