Sex is a delicate topic and without a doubt it’s a topic that we all have heard of either in secret or either outright but it’s something that we don’t usually talk about in public, so in this video, we’re gonna be emphasising on the answers on sex and heart disease, coming right up. Hey y’all Aman here and you’re watching Heart Limits. A channel that talks about everything heart related. Now sex in general terms or simply put is a way for us to fulfil a certain quality of our lives and that’s a mild way to put it right but of course you know what I mean and sex is you know it’s quite important for some people and sex is also a way for us to connect with people or to make it more decent to connect with our partners okay? Now the thing with sex is of course if you’ve experienced it or if you are aware about it there are times where it actually leaves a person out of breath, it gives us this mindset that you require some form of stamina and because of that makes us ask us this big question especially if we have some form of heart disease, a heart problem or we just recently suffered a heart attack and that question is, “Is it safe for us to have sex if we have a heart complication?” So to answer this it’s actually… the best way to be honest is to start off with, how serious and what level of heart problem do you have? The more severe it is the more dangerous it is for you to have sex in general and the best way to do this is of course to ask your doctor okay? Next, now sex is actually viewed to be in general or simply put rather, it is a moderate form of anaerobic exercise and as we all know anaerobic exercise is supposed to be good for the heart it keeps our blood pressure low, it controls our stress and anxiety levels and it just makes us feel better as a whole but with sex if you want to put it into a form of measurement in comparison to an exercise, sex is actually like brisk walking or you could say even climbing up a flight of stairs about to be honest about two to three flights of stairs. One flight of stairs is about twelve steps so if we’re talking about three flights of stairs, so that’s twelve times three making it 36 steps okay? and if you are able to accomplish that, brisk walking or going up three flights of stairs, if you don’t run out of air when you’re at the final step or even if you don’t have problems talking once you’ve reached that point, already is a way of letting yourself know that it should technically be safe enough for you to have sex okay? So that’s a general way to find out if you are capable to have sex okay? But the thing is if you go online and if you know reality, sex is actually done in various ways and there are lots of things that could contribute that makes sex more complicated than what it seems and to make things easier for you we’re gonna break it down into five things okay? So let’s start with number one. Number one is about the sexual position or you could say the sex position, “Kamasutra” or whatever. Now the thing with the sexual position is that there are certain positions which actually gives more stress to a person’s heart or the person’s body in general because it’s hard to do and the safest position is the missionary to be honest and just so you’re aware the person on top normally has a heart rate which is about 10 beats higher in comparison than with the person who is below, so if you have some form of heart problem, try to probably opt for the position that is below. I’m not saying that it kind of makes the person lazy but it’s a way to kind of have that safety parameter in some way, okay? Also keep in mind that if ever you have just undergone some heart surgery, of course there has been an impact on your breastbone so you need to give it about six to eight weeks for it to recover for you to safely get back into the sex life, if you could say and also when you have sex especially if you have some form of heart problem or something it’s not a bad idea to actually put some cushion or pillows especially when there is some form pressure that is placed on your chest. Don’t let the person flatten you so much because you might have a problem breathing as well, so yeah that’s another thing after all but yeah okay so that’s number one. Number one is the sexual position. Number two is actually involved with how kinky or how sexually I guess you could say adventurous you are. Now some people like making the sexual process more interesting and some people do it in an interestingly original or interestingly I guess you could say Fifty Shades of Grey kind of way okay? So sex is something that you know is great. It makes you explore certain feelings that you haven’t felt before but as a general rule so that it can help you keep in bounds, the more you explore and the more you start feeling sensations that you haven’t felt before or sensations that are very heightened already puts a risk on a person. So let me explain. Let’s say for instance anal sex, so of course you know what’s anal sex, instead of putting it in the you know the vajayjay you put it in the aholehole okay? If you put it there the problem is your anus, I guess you could say your asshole or whatever is actually connected to the vagus nerve and the problem is once the vagus nerve is in some way irritated it actually could give you a problem that your heart rate goes down, you can faint and it can actually lead to certain complications and even death so be careful if you are into anal sex. Problem is of course if you’re gay or if you are more of a curious type it’s important you tell your doctor about this and see what you can do about it okay? Next, if you are into bondage, problem with bondage is there’s lots of things going on and the problem is it puts some form of pressure on a person in many ways. Some people like being tied up. What if it constricts some areas which are not supposed to be constricted? Some people like flogging. I think it’s called flogging? It’s flagging or flog? I think it’s flogging; you know where they hit a person, some people like that sensation but sometimes it could also prove to have a negative impact on a person. Some people also like this shock thing, you know where they have some form of electricity, problem is if you have a heart problem or a pacemaker it could actually affect the functions of your heart and the pacemaker itself so be careful if you are also into bondage okay? Or rather electric shock thing. Some people also like putting this thing on their mouth, problem with that is it also tends to make them gag, problem with that also it’s also quite bad because again it is other pressure added to the body so be careful on going too kinky. Of course there’s also other ways of kinky where people like having sex in different environments, like say for instance they want to do it in public, they want to do it on a balcony, they want to do it on a beach, they want to do it in a spa. A spa? in a Jacuzzi or even in a sauna, some environments are quite of course the thrill involved in it could be good but the problem is some people are not really built to accept the thrill so the body might not be able to keep up with the level of thrill that’s going on, okay? So be careful, don’t be too experimental or too over the top especially if you have some form of heart problem, so keep that in mind alright? Next, sex has a way of lasting longer and shorter for some people, okay? So, we’re gonna talk about sex and the duration. Now in general sex lasts for about 5 to 15 minutes, but some people tend to find ways to make it last longer like instead of like I’m about to cum they’re just going to stop for a bit do something else and then continue on again. Problem with that, is it it also builds some form of pressure on the person because you’re already, the body is expecting to release but it cannot release because you made the experience longer, so of course that’s another pressure that can contribute to a heart complication okay? Also, some people are not built to last that long, so it’s not really a bad idea to actually have this stress test and some doctors if they see that your stress test scores, I guess you could say scores, are not that good they would actually refer some cardio rehab and in the end it could help you in your sex performance and even help make you last longer so don’t be afraid to let your doctor know and after all you know sex is still a form of exercise so in reality you do need some form of fitness okay? So that’s number three. Number four is the psychological mindset. Now there are many things that runs in a person’s mind when they have sex, for some people it’s just the pleasure, they’re totally into it, but this is usually the case when you are comfortable with the person or with your partner. So, let’s say for instance you would put into comparison a person who’s been having sex with his partner for about a year in comparison to a person who finally went out on a first date with a girl and they’re going to have their first sexual intercourse, now the pressure, the stress, the anxiety and everything is totally different between the two so be aware that if ever it’s your first time, second or third time the risks are higher in comparison with someone you’ve done it with for quite some time and this is mainly so because of course as we all know we are human beings and we have many things that happens in our minds. We would be thinking will I perform okay? Is my thing big enough for her? She had a better experience with a guy before now and I have to live up to her standards. You know it’s insane how much this thing comes into play it’s like even simple things. Do I look thin? Do I look fat? Hopefully I don’t sweat. Hopefully I don’t stink. You know there’s a ton of things that runs into people’s minds especially when it’s their first, second or third time to get into a sexual intercourse with the person so keep in mind that these are also factors that contribute to heart risk. Of course, also just so you’re aware, affairs, you know affairs by I mean like if a person is married and that person sleeps with another person who is not his wife or her husband actually puts a big stress on a person’s heart and there’s studies that have shown that many of the cases of heart attacks are actually connected with a sex with a person that person had an affair with so try to have sex with a clear mind and be conscious that if you’re having sex with the person you’re comfortable with, it is safer rather than having sex with a person the first time, I’m not telling you to go back to your ex and have sex with your ex. I’m not saying that, but keep in mind that this is a contributory factor to how your heart might react in that sexual condition okay? So that’s number four. Number five is about the drive. Some people are so into it, it’s like I can keep going for so many rounds and all of this and some people just have problems even like erectile dysfunctions and this is also mainly because not only because of the meds that are given to you, like let’s say for instance Beta Blockers or something to keep your heart rate down; most of these drugs can have side effects on your libido and give you an erectile dysfunction but sometimes the root cause could actually be depression you know, like finding out that, oh my I had heart attack and I have to give up on a couple of things, even just the thought of that could result in depression and depression could result to the loss of the sexual drive so be aware that to make things easier sex is not only about performance, sex is also about intimacy. So remember, sex can be and technically should be safe for a person even if you have a heart problem but be aware that there are certain things that could change how sex is and become quite dangerous for that person alright? So, once again Aman here and you’re watching Heart Limits. Now I know this topic is quite sensitive and to be honest there are many things that are actually easier and better explained by doctors. Don’t be ashamed to ask your doctors these questions because who knows, what if there actually shouldn’t be a problem with what you want to get in to. No harm asking you know. At least better safe that sorry right? So once again, see yah!
