We’ve all heard the antiquated, misogynistic joke around “Not tonight honey, I have a headache.”
Well, It turns out not only does the joke denigrate women—-it’s WRONG!
Beyond the fact women get these major headaches (a.k.a. migraines) more often than men, the most natural way to mitigate our migraine symptoms is through the pain killing property of orgasms.
For the sciency types among us there have, in fact, been studies done around this notion.
Research conducted by Randolph W. Evans, M.D. and James R. Couch, M.D., Ph.D showed orgasms worked far more swiftly than migraine ending medications.
Partner produced orgasms fit the bill (we’re never anti-those) it’s just those of us who’ve experienced the full body sensitivity of a migraine know during that time our touch is the best touch.
In addition, (and this is merely conjecture from those of us here at Your Box Box HQ) unlike even the safest of meds time spent diddling Miss Daisy has zero side effects!
Now, those among us who are already happily part of the masturbation movement may not need another reason to prioritize pleasure in our lives.
At the first sign of a pre-migraine aura/sensation getting down with some self-love maybe just the pain disruptor the doctor forgot to order.
