Apparently women aren't the only ones suffering from strange "popping" sounds during sex. In today's UK Mirror, Briton Charlotte Camfield relates how her fiance, Felix, almost left this mortal coil during a particularly rowdy bout of boot knockin'.

Felix was everything I wanted in a husband - good-looking, funny and kind. And, just a year after we first started dating, we couldn't wait to make it official. But as we made passionate love that night in October last year something happened that would change our lives for ever. "My head just popped," Felix said as we lay exhausted in the bed afterwards. "I didn't realise I was that good!" I joked. But when I looked at him I could see he was ill. "I've got a splitting headache," he moaned.

Laugh all you want, but it turns out Felix almost died (a blood vessel had burst in his brain, requiring surgery). And not only did the couple's wedding have to be called off, Felix' personality underwent a disturbing metamorphosis ("He repeatedly boiled the kettle to make a cup of tea. Then, when he finally did make one, he'd give me water without the teabag. He became obsessed with DIY, although he'd never been keen before."). We now resolve to take our boyfriend more seriously when he begs off having sex because of a "headache".
