Boffins stay don’t bonk in the hot weather – as heatwave sex could kill you

Brits risk heart attacks and fatal heatstroke from 30C hot weather nookie, with the nation told to avoid “extreme physical exertion."

The British Heart Foundation told Brits not to overheat themselves while hot weather is putting more strain on the heart.

The NHS said not to undertake “extreme exercise” as it could cause heatstroke, which can be fatal.

And sex with a new partner or doing it missionary style increase stress on the heart, studies show.

Brits feeling chest pains during sex should halt rather than finish the job, experts said.

Harvard said: “Sex with a new partner in an unfamiliar setting increases the risk to the heart.

“Sexual positions change potential effects on the heart. Having the man on top has greater energy expenditure for both partners than with the woman on top.

“Men who experience possible cardiac symptoms during sex should interrupt the sexual activity at once.”

The NHS said: “During hot weather, there’s a high risk of heat exhaustion or heatstroke, which needs to be treated as an emergency. To help prevent it, avoid extreme exercise.”

The Government’s Heatwave Plan for England said: “Avoid extreme physical exertion.”

And in general health advice, it added: “Place a thermometer in your living room and bedroom to keep a check on temperatures.”

The British Heart Foundation said: “Hot weather means your body has to work harder to keep its core temperature to normal levels, and this puts extra strain on your heart. Stay cool and hydrated.”
