Having sex while sick can reduce a fever due to the sweat produced.

Sex is also a pain reliever, ten times more effective than Valium.

Immediately before orgasm, levels of the hormone oxytocin rise by five times, determining a huge release of endorphins. These chemicals calm pain, from a minor headache to arthritis or migraines, and with no secondary effects. Migraines also disappear because the pressure in the brain's blood vessels is lowered while we have sex.

So now we see that actually, a woman's headache is rather a good reason for having sex, not against it.

Fun personal fact: I worked at IPS (Invision Power Services) for 1.65 months (please don't ask me anything about this though-NDA)

Fun gaming fact: The person that founded atari also made chuck e cheese.


Anyone can post fun facts here. ^_^

An early draft of the Back to the Future script had a fridge instead of the DeLorean.

That's the only fact I know. Everything else is made up.
