High-tech porn gives you a headache

Written by Nick Farrell



Indian boffins baffled


Indian researchers are baffled by a strange case of technology phobia which could indicate that there is some major suffering going on in the world which no one has noticed. A 24 year-old single bloke has reported that when ever he tries to watch porn on his computer he gets a terrible headache.

It is nothing to do with the porn, as it does not cause a problem when he watches the same thing on a conventional television.  Nor is it to do with a guilt trip over a fear of masturbation. The 24-year-old bachelor in India, that's exactly what has happened for the last two years whenever he tried to watch an X-rated movie. About ten minutes into an online sex sex scene the bloke always e experiences "severe, exploding" headaches that develop gradually and peak.

Researchers from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University in New Delhiwrote published the case in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour which we get for the articles, honest. Apparently it took the equivalent of about 30 painkillers a half hour before turning on a video, the study says.

Dawn Buse, associate professor of neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and director of behavioural medicine at the Montefiore Headache Center in New York said the case was interesting because "he was just watching porn and not actually having sex," told ABC News.

The neurologists that treated the man, a software engineer, found he was otherwise healthy. He has no history of migraines either. The answer might be complicated. They think it could be from changes in the pain-sensing nerves in the face and jaw, which become more sensitive in a heightened emotional state. But why he would get that when he is looking at his computer and not any other source is a mystery.

It could be that being a software engineer he has a relationship with his computer and feels guilty while watching porn on “her.” This could be a much wider problem and there are shedloads of software engineers who are having to tell their computers “not tonight I have a headache.”
