Deadly orgasm: When female masturbation turns into aneurysm rupture

This is an extremely rare fact that happened in Germany. A young woman aged only 24 died while she was in her bathroom where she had locked herself to masturbate. A sexual activity that led to a subarachnoid hemorrhage following the rupture of a cerebral aneurysm, the facts were reported by Marc Gozlan on the blog “Réalités Biomédicales“.

Unusual case of death for this young woman, for whom the masturbation session turned into a tragedy. A cerebral aneurysm occurs when the wall of an intracranial artery expands abnormally. Here, it is the anterior communicating artery which has dilated until it forms a sac 6 mm in diameter. During orgasm, blood pressure rose sharply, causing the aneurysm to rupture.

The scene took place during a family celebration, and the young woman was found by her companion after he was worried that she would not come back after an hour and a half. She had vomited profusely and was kneeling on the floor, where the vibrator she had just used was. In their article published online in the American Journal of Forensic Medicine and PathologyGerman forensic scientists explain that the young woman suffered from migraine-like headaches shortly before her death, probably related to her cerebral aneurysm.

The autopsy performed did not reveal any criminal leads, an unlikely lead given the circumstances but which had not been completely ruled out due to a relationship that had become conflicted with her companion, but it did reveal that the breakup of aneurysm has led to subarachnoid hemorrhage, i.e. a massive influx of blood into the meninges. This is only the second case of fatal meningeal hemorrhage associated with sexual activity recorded in clinical observations since 1985 in Germany, as explained by Dr. Constantin Blanke-Roeser from the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Germany. University of Hamburg.  » Globally, the frequency of sudden death during sexual activity is estimated at between 0.08% and 0.6% in forensic autopsy series. On the other hand, there are probably a large number of unreported cases due to the fact that the sexual partners hide the circumstances of the death and the doctor refrains from asking them during the post-mortem examination. he concludes.
