Early this month there was a startling case in Malawi inwhich a Blantyre based man was said to have died of ‘too much sex sweetness’. The man, Fletcher Jere, who was from the commercial city of Blantyre was said to have engaged himself beyond the limit of sexual frenzy and lost his dear life while having romps.

Jere died ‘riding’ a commercial sex worker because of “too much sweetness” in the densely inhabited township of Ndirande, reported DailyTimes on March 9, 2011.

According to reports, Jere died because of “cardiogenic shock”—a technical term described by those in the know as a state in which the heart fails to supply blood to the rest of the body—during the sexual encounter.

And Police said they were treating the issue only as sudden death and the sex worker will not be prosecuted. The police spokesperson was quoted as saying, ‘the sex worker will not be prosecuted because being “too much sweet” for the man is not a crime.’

To remove all doubts and suspicions to the truth on how this case has been handled by police, U.S researchers on tuesday reported;

Sudden bursts of moderate to intense physical activity — such as jogging or having sex — significantly increase the risk of having a heart attack, especially in people who do not get regular exercise.

Doctors have long known that physical activity can cause serious heart problems, but the new study helps to quantify that risk.

The team analyzed data from 14 studies looking at the link between exercise, sex and the risk of heart attacks or sudden cardiac death — a lethal heart rhythm that causes the heart to stop circulating blood.

They found people are 3.5 times more likely to get a heart attack or have sudden cardiac death when they are exercising, i.e having sex, compared to when they are not.

And they are 2.7 times more likely to get a heart attack when they are having sex or immediately afterward compared with when they are not. (These findings do not apply to sudden cardiac death because there were no studies looking at the link between sex and cardiac death.)

The risk is fairly high as such studies go. But the period of increased risk is brief.

These elevated risks are only for a short period of time (1 to 2 hours) during and after the physical or sexual activity.

Because of that, the risk to individuals over the course of a year is still quite small, she said.

If you take 10,000 people, each individual session of physical or sexual activity per week can be associated with an increase of 1 to 2 cases of heart attack or sudden cardiac death per year.

She said it is important to balance the findings with other studies showing that regular physical activity reduces the risk of heart attacks and sudden cardiac death by 30 percent.

What we really don’t want to do is for the public to walk away from this and think any exercise is bad.

What it means is that people who do not exercise regularly need to start any exercise program slowly, gradually increasing the intensity of the workout over time>
