Married men cheating on their wives are more likely to die during sex according to a new report compiled by the American Heart Association.
The researchers analyzed more than 5,500 cases of sudden deaths and found that a very small number, less than 0.6 percent or 34 deaths, occurred during sex.
However a very large majority of these deaths were among married men who were having extra marital affairs. According to the report, published in the journal Circulation, more than 93 percent of the deaths occurred among married men cheating on their partners.
However lead researcher Professor Glenn Levine said that the high percentage should not be blown out of context. "I would not blow this too out of context. Without being sarcastic, I really can state that I have not had a patient who asked me about the cardiac risks of an extramarital affair", he said.
