Man suffers excruciating headaches every time he watches porn

INDIA - A 24-year-old unmarried man in India complained of intense 'exploding' headaches while watching pornography, researchers said.

The case study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, said the unnamed male software professional said the headaches were so painful after two years he sought the help of a doctor.

Researchers from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University in New Delhi said the man said the headaches would develop gradually over five minutes of viewing videos and would peak within eight to 10 minutes.

"The intensity was so severe that the man had to abort watching. There was no accompanying nausea or vomiting. Progressively, he started to refrain from viewing videos as a means of avoiding headaches.'

The man had no history of head injury or meningoencephalitis in early childhood. He did not have a history suggestive of migraine, tension type or exertional headache, the researchers said.

Magnetic resonance imaging, angiography of brain and electroencephalogram tests were normal, the researchers added.

"The man was advised to take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent combination - 400 milligrams of ibuprofen and 500 mg of paracetamol, commonly used for the relief of headaches and other minor aches - half an hour before watching pornography.

"The man reported significant pain relief."
