The cause of death of a 35-year-old man who died visiting a sex worker has been listed as “extreme orgasm”.
The man, named as Charles Majawa in a police report, passed out while having sex with the woman in Phalombe, Malawi last year.
After discussing the incident with her colleagues, the woman involved reported the death to the police.
On August 18 last year, the police and a medical examiner from Migowi Health Centre viewed the body and confirmed that Mr Majawa had died while in the act.
A postmortem report officially listed the cause of death as being a result of an “excessive orgasm which caused blood vessels in the brain to rupture.”
Local newspaper said Mr Majawa “died of too much sexual excitement and sweetness.”
Phalombe Police Station spokesperson, Innocent Moses, confirmed Mr Majawa “ended up collapsing and becoming unconscious while in the act.”
Local police have said the woman involved will not be held responsible for the man’s death, adding that no charges will be made related to his death.
