Sex reduces stress and can be gratifying but can also lead to your death if not properly controlled, Dr Jewu Appiah, the country director of IPAS Ghana and an advisor on reproductive health, has warned.
He was speaking Monday on Accra-based Starr FM after the Police confirmed the death of a 28-year-old woman, who was reported to have had several rounds of sex with a male companion in a hotel in Accra.
Giving his take on what could have caused the woman’s death, Dr Appiah said an autopsy would be the best bet to reveal the actual cause.
However, he said, a number of reasons can be ascribed to the young woman’s death.

Dr Appiah said: “It can be an underlying condition that was not detected, it could be a heart condition that was not detected, it could be that she had to take some medication to be on this lengthy act, so there are a lot of factors that you can adduce to it but these are all speculations.
“People are taking medication to be able to go the extra length, I know boys are now doing that but I don’t know that of girls.
“Some also engage in use of alcohol, excessive use of alcohol because they think that they can prolong the act but that can lead to fatality if you have some underlying conditions that are not detected”.
