Next Time You Have a Headache, Masturbate

Or if you’re actually fortunate enough to have a partner, go have sex. That whole “not tonight dear I have a headache” is bullshit. Next time she/he says that, show them this article 😜

Now though I don’t normally write about this type of stuff (and I probably won’t again for a hella long time) this article stems from my last headache and, yup…read on.

(but wait, why do we love to read and write about sex but when someone says masturbate everyone turns red and hides?)

Anyway, so a few years ago I read an article <(though this isn’t the article I did find a good one for you to read so you don’t think I’m making this shit up) about how having orgasms can help alleviate migraines and headaches. Whoa that’s cool!! Ironically, I never really gave it much thought and just tossed it in the ‘useless information bin’.

Though I never get headaches, I do get migraines. There’s a difference.

So the other day a migraine was just starting to creep up. And I’m not fortunate enough to have a partner so, ya. We’re all friends here, amirite?

It was time to finally put this theory to test. I was curious. Not only that, I really do hate taking pills and will only do so when the migraine is totally out of control. This one was just starting.

Let’s do this.

Magic bullet - ✔️

Fully charged-✔️

Here we go.

So obviously getting started requires a wee bit of patience and persistence because let’s face it, who the fuck feels like being aroused when their head is in pain?

Now I don’t know about you but once I get started it’s the stopping I actually have a hard time with. 3 orgasms, 5, 10, 20…. ok (oops sorry guys I think this part only applies to women?). Have you had enough to prove this theory right or wrong yet?

Before we get into the results though I’m not sure if this theory is exclusive to women or if it works for men too. Any men reading this, please try it and let us know!

So the results of my test are as follows:

I have to be honest, it took a while to get started really. I honestly wasn’t in the ‘mood’ but I persisted. In the beginning my migraine pounded a wee bit as I got, you know, aroused. With the first couple of orgasms it pounded quite a bit but then as I continued, they really seemed to lessen. When I was finally done I noticed the pain was actually gone.

Boom! This actually does work!! Yippee.

Now I should let you know, I’m not the kind of person that tries all kinds of unorthodox methods to cure ailments but I gotta admit, this one piqued my curiosity and trying it out certainly wasn’t going to cause any harm or cost me an arm and a leg so, why not give it a whirl?

I also have to say I’m not sure if this works with regular headaches but for God sake, don’t discount it! There’s no harm in trying, is there?

So there ya have it peeps. Masturbation and/or sex is great for headaches and migraines! Rejoice! Say goodbye to pills and hello to ‘yes, yes, yesssss’.

You’re welcome ❤

Peace and Love
