Woman suffers 'heart attack after overdoing it' at sex festival

A middle-aged woman suffered a heart attack at a sex festival in the English countryside after “overdoing it” during the activities, it has been reported.

The female swinger, 52, was at the Swingfields Festival in Malvern, Worcestershire, at the weekend when she had a heart attack.

The Sun reported she fell ill after “overdoing it during group activities”.

The event included a range of sex-themed activities such as jelly wrestling and a tug of war.

The woman was taken in an air ambulance from the site in a field to hospital on Friday evening. She was said to be recovering in a cardiac ward but was expected to leave hospital on Sunday.

A source at the festival told the newspaper: “The swinger had a heart attack when the medics were on site. She was given emergency treatment. It gave the 700 swingers present a bit of a shock.

“But it didn’t take too long for the fun and games to resume.

“She’s now had a stent fitted in one of her blocked arteries and is making a recovery.

“There have been a few jokes about her overdoing it in the frenzy of camp activities.”

Couples paid up to $AU745 to attend the festival, which claims to be the largest of its kind in Europe.
