Headache before orgasm
When I masturbate, just before reaching orgasm, I get the most vicious headache and after orgasm, it takes a while before it subsides. Could this be high blook pressure? Normally my blood pressure is normal.

Dear Thumper
No it probably is not your bloodpressure. One actually gets a thing called orgasmic headache. It is a type of migraine. Benign orgasmic headache is often effectively treated with migraine medications such as blood-vessel constricting agents, taken before intercourse - talk to your GP.
