My My: Man Goes Partially Blind In One Eye After 'Vigorous Sex'

November 27, 2017

not-the-worst-way-to-go-blind.jpg

An English man went partially blind in one eye during a climax following 'vigorous sex', although there's no mention of a partner in the study so he may have just been going to town solo like somebody trying to inflate a bike tire in a hurry.

The doctor concluded that the man performed the "Valsalva maneuver," meaning that he tensed his abdominal muscles and held his breath during sex.


This caused a blood vessel in his eye to pop because of the increased pressure to his chest.

After taking his medical history, the clinician diagnosed him with postcoital valsalva retinopathy.

The case study notes that the man's condition resolved itself over time without any further intervention.

So it corrected itself over time, that's a huge relief. Mostly because I'm very interested in experimenting with this 'Valsalva maneuver.' The study mentioned the increased blood pressure in the head has also caused amnesia in some patients and, God willing, the ability to warp the fabric of space-time by at least one idiot who's about to try it. Wish me luck! *posts Craigslist casual encounter ad for someone willing to make vigorous love to a time traveler*

Thanks to Thaylor H, who is now partially blind in both eyes and can't hear or smell that well either.

    Hey @GW, I'd like to suggest enabling image attachments on your disqus site. Linking out and back to see everyone's funny gifs and jifs is super easy, but also mildly annoying; so it'd be great if I could give you a chore to make my life almost imperceptibly better. Thanks!

    The Valsalva maneuver isn't as exotic as it sounds. It's performed by divers to equalize the pressure in their inner ear while diving; Astronauts need to do it too due to the difference in pressure in their suits. I often have to do it in a plane while landing because for some reason only my left ear doesn't quite "pop" normally like my right ear, so I have to do the Valsalva to force it to reinflate. It involves holding your nose, shutting your mouth, and trying to exhale firmly but gently until your ears pop.

    I think the variation being spoken of here is where you try to pull your bellybutton and your butthole closer to each other (at least, that's the visualisation you use). Martial artists and weightlifters use it to increase abdominal pressure, thereby amplifying the strength of any other muscular contraction you have going on at the same time...

  • GeneralDisorder

    There are variations to the valsalva maneuver. The ear popping one is the most common but there's a thing involving holding your breath and attempting to exhale which would increase your heart rate. If you're already at a heavy heart rate and you hold your breath you can definitely cause a problem.

    There's a reason they tell you to breathe in things like martial arts, heavy lifting, cycling, etc. If you hold your breath for a few seconds you can black out and get hurt.

    sounds kinky

  • Oh is that all.
    I've done that before.

    Your source is Breitbart? Really?

  • Kaizer Chief

    GW makes a big effort to keep political bullshit off here, so perhaps you should do the same.

  • Jessicaissleeping

    LOL yeah except linking back the article promotes breitbart. disheartening. is the quest for content really that bad?

  • Kaizer Chief

    So GW should only link to sources whose political leanings exactly match yours?

  • Jessicaissleeping

    Everyone should do what I think at all times. But no, a quick google search can find 1000 other of the same shitty articles about this dude cumming from sites that have no political affiliation (unlike breitbart, which has defined themselves as a political far right new source).

  • Kaizer Chief

    Fair enough. I still don't think it's worth grumbling about though.

  • Geekologie

    it was the link i was sent, whats brettbart

  • steve holt

    GW, you picked the perfect pic for this post.

  • James Mcelroy

    DEAN!!!!

  • steve holt

    WHat, no video??

  • sizzlepants

    Partially blind in one eye because he crunched his stomach hard and not because he totally jizzed in his eye?

    Right....
