F The Pain Away! Ask Dr. Miro [What You Didn't Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro,

Is it true that sex can get rid of headaches? I think my girlfriend is making this stuff up.

Sincerely,
Tylenol Man

Dear TM,

Not all sex can get rid of headaches but full on orgasm is capable of removing blockages and decreasing pain of all sorts! Have you noticed that right before you come, more intensity of everything is needed? It works like this: when you have an orgasm, your body releases serotonin and endorphins. Serotonin is that fabulous neurotransmitter that helps improve desire, pain perception and mood. Endorphins are opiate-esque chemicals your body releases at orgasm which have been proven to increase pain thresholds. All that, is to say: Orgasm is a natural painkiller.

Keep in mind, not only are the endorphins and serotonin levels at play, but headaches are generally caused by blood vessels in the brain constricting. This is what causes the tension and pain. During Petite Mort, there is an increase in blood flow, dilating those tiny vessels and eliminating the pain in your head! This would not work for a migraine but a headache? Definitely. The old, “Not tonight dear, I have a headache” is a giant load of crap. If there is a headache, sex is the best thing to try. Of course, self-pleasuring would probably be the safest route to go so you do not have the additional pressure of finding someone with whom to have an orgasm.

On a side note, thanks to Masters & Johnson, orgasm is medically recognized as the best remedy for menstrual cramps. The big O disperses pelvic edema, a fancy term for those stuffy, bloaty, crampy feelings a lot of gals get before they begin menstruating.  My professional opinion is to follow the teachings of Peaches and F the Pain Away!

Lust & Happiness,
Dr. Miro
