A German study has found that having an affair can by deadly for men. Not because their wives might have them killed if they found out, but because men are about twice as likely to die during sex with their mistresses than with their wives. Research done at the Centre for Forensic Medicine in Frankfurt studied over 30,000 deaths covering the last 30 years and found that 60 men had died during sex, almost all by heart attack. While only one in four died in the arms of their wives, over half of them died during an unfaithful fling and the rest died during masturbation. One possible explanation may be that the added stress of having sex during an affair may have caused the heart attacks, but the researchers only conclusion was that the men were trying harder to impress their extra-marital lovers and that extra effort caused enough strain on the heart to kill them.
