You’d think the last thing on your mind when you have a migraine would be sex, but you might want to rethink that. New research shows that sex might cure migraines. According to the report, one in five migraine sufferers were completely cured after getting busy, while more than half said they at least felt much better. One reason scientists think sex helps is because doing the deed triggers the release of endorphins, which are our bodies’ natural painkillers. But, there’s also an area of the brain that’s responsible for both extreme head pain and orgasms, researchers say, which could play a role as well.
