Having an affair can be deadly
Updated: 2004-05-21 09:23

Having an affair can be quite literally deadly, according to a German study showing unfaithful men are more likely to die during sex than their loyal counterparts.

After searching through nearly 30,000 post-mortems covering three decades, researchers at the Center for Forensic Medicine in Frankfurt noticed 60 cases where someone died while having sex.

Of those, 56 were men who had heart attacks and of those, only four died in the arms of their spouse or partner.

"More than half of them lived their last hour in the arms of a lover or at a brothel," the Bild der Wissenschaft magazine reported.
