A 29-year-old man had to go to the hospital after losing the vision of an eye after having an orgasm the night before.
According to the British Medical Journal, doctors found a hemorrhage in the subject’s eye, which was caused by a buildup of pressure in the blood vessel.
The researchers concluded that holding your breath during an orgasm, for example- which is any attempt to exhale air with the glottis closed or with your mouth and nose – can cause blood vessels to burst.
“The autonomic effects of orgasm in the eye are well known and have been associated with other eye pathologies, including angle-closure glaucoma,” the doctors said. The young man’s injury was temporary and only six cases have been registered.
