The sex sneeze

The sex sneeze

Are those the fall sniffles or are you just thinking about sex too much?

Its the season to get sneezy! Well, in most part of the world the beginning of autumn doesn’t just mean beautiful colored leaves but also the beginning of flu season. There is nothing less attractive than having your date sneeze all over you. But what if it just means he is hoping for much more than just a goodnight kiss? Because the thought of sex could make you sneeze!

Two UK doctors tried to find out more about the phenomenon. They think that the link between sex and sneezing has largely been missed by the medical profession. They unearthed evidence, via internet chat rooms, of 17 others – of both sexes – with the same problem. The Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine study suggests it may be down to a mix-up in brain circuitry.

Dr Bhutta, a specialist in ear, nose and throat medicine at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital, said the phenomenon could be more widespread than thought and might even be inherited!

“It certainly seems odd, but I think this reflex demonstrates evolutionary relics in the wiring of a part of the nervous system called the autonomic nervous system. This is the part beyond our control, and which controls things like our heart rate and the amount of light let in by our pupils. Sometimes the signals in this system get crossed, and I think this may be why some people sneeze when they think about sex.”

So if your signals in the system get crossed, be sure your date gets the right signals! …Just thinking about sex baby, just think about you and me…
