Man goes blind after powerful orgasm during sex

A man was admitted to a hospital after having a 'powerful
orgasm' that caused him to go blind in one eye during sex.
According to the British Medical Journal, the ‘29-year-old
man went to the emergency eye clinic to report an
obstruction in the central vision of his left eye, which he had
noticed on waking that morning’.
Doctors suspected that the man in question performed what
they described as ‘Valsalva maneuveur,’ a move that
resulted in tensing of abdominal muscles, straining and
holding the breath, in which air is forced against a closed
windpipe and pressure increases in the chest.
In the research carried out by the doctors, they said
the pressure resulted in the popping of blood vessel in the
eye of the unfortunate man after an episode of 'vigorous
sexual intercourse', doctors concluded after speaking to
him.
‘The diagnosis was unclear and the patient was asked to
return for follow-up three days later.
‘At this visit, he saw a different clinician who asked direct
questions about the patient's sexual activity.
‘The patient then reported an episode of vigorous sexual
intercourse on the evening preceding the onset of
symptoms.
‘This directed history led to the diagnosis of postcoital
valsalva retinopathy. Valsalva retinopathy is managed
conservatively and is a self-resolving condition with an
excellent prognosis.’
Haematologists also found out that 'Valsalva manoeuvre'
can also produce memory loss.
A 1998 study revealed that the intense pressure in the
brain's blood vessels resulted in temporary lack of blood
flow to the central part of the brain, which in turn, resulted
in amnesia.
