Men are more likely to suffer from a heart attack after sex than women.

According to researchers from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles, the odds of going into cardiac arrest after getting jiggy between the sheets are very low, but they did find that it is higher for guys compared to ladies.

The researchers rummaged through more than 4,5000 cardiac arrests recorded over a 13-year period in the Portland area and found only 34 were during or within an hour of having sex - and all of them aside from two were suffered by a man.

Results from the study were published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
