I've recently been told that sex is actually very helpful in getting rid of headaches.  Is this true and why?

LOL....I know my mind stays in the gutter much of the time but I really did hear that.  I even googled it and found several references to it but I haven't found the reason for it.  During my search I also read that sex is good for more than headaches, it's helpful in relieving many aches and pains!

Possible cause of headache (one of many) is injury or tightness in the spine.
If this is the cause ... then sex might help BECAUSE

1) the physical movement. During sex, the body moves in different ways to normal use and exercise.

2) the orgasm releases a flood of chemicals into the system. I do not know or care to know all the components - only that they do seem to positively (though temporarily) relieve some of the symptoms.

3) during organism, the body tightens up - and relaxes. This ties back into the mechanics of the spine - and thus back to point 1) above.

I do not know if this is the real issue but I throw it up for consideration.
It is *an* explanation anyway.

Normally when i get a headache..if i do something to take my mind off it, the pain will go away. (Does anybody else experience this?)

Maybe thats why..
