Does sexual arousal really cause a nose bleed?
« on: November 10, 2009, 12:04:53 AM »
In anime and manga this often happens, but does this ever happen in real life?

Lol.
No, you won't get nosebleeds, in reality your blood gets rushed a bit lower...

This happens in anime because of one of the anime laws:
Quote
#40 Law of Nasal Sanguination
When sexually aroused, males in Anime don't get erections, they get nosebleeds. No one's sure why this is, though... the current theory suggests that larger eyes means smaller sinuses and thinner sinus tissue (see Law #38 above). Females don't get nosebleeds, but invariably get one heck of a blush along the cheeks and across the nose, suggesting a lot of bloodflow to that region.

So it's more of a censorship thing? Interesting...

OFFTOPIC: BTW, what is your new avatar supposed to be???

I know that it doesn't always happen, but does it ever happen in rare incidences?

Hey female characters get nosebleeds! Want examples? Kanako Miayame, Takako Kimura, Nodame (Megumi Noda) and Masumi Okuyama.

But in real life, if you have a nose bleed when you feel horny, it's because, like Janus said, you just hit a post or something like that. xD

Actually, you can get a slight nosebleed from it, but it's atributed to nervosism, not exactly sexual arousal. But since sexual arousal around others can leave you embarrased/nervous, in extreme ases it might happen, I guess.

Lol, I guess you can say that.
Considering certain animes revolve around sexual arousals (ecchis), authors probably had to get something more "decent" to show it then bulges in pants. Although it's used just as that (in a way other characters don't even seem to notice it), sometimes it leads to comedic situations, like in MariaHolic, where everyone thinks the main girl is anemic, because of her constant nosebleeds and passing outs (picture a lesbian in an all-girls school if you've never seen the name).

About my avatar, her name's Flandre Scarlet from the Touhou games. I got it from here. All I did was print-screen and invert the colors. :P

still Offtopic:  although I don't completely understand the world of touhou or know the names of all the characters, I still love it. I've played the games and they are hard to beat, even on easy. I don't want to get too carried away, but you are the first member here that I've seen that likes touhou.

back on topic: well nosebleeds can happen randomly like the one I had when I was a kid ( and the only one up to this point), suddenly I saw drops of blood on my math book while I was doing homework, then realizing they were mine
or maybe the math book was...

I have lots of nosebleeds, mostly because of the heat. Like, today I was taking a shower and all of a sudden, I look down and I see spots of blood on the water. At first I thought of period but then I remembered that period does NOT come when the girl/woman is wet and also, it's already gone for this month (yay!). Then, I realized it was my nose and it took 5 minutes to stop the bleeding.

Even though I have no proof of it... when I nosebleed is not because I'm sexually aroused. xD

I've had a nose bleed before and it does often take a while to get it to stop.

I believing closing the nostrils with your thumb and finger while NOT tilting back helps control the flow. By that, it won't be flowing at as much and should be okay after a while to let it close.

For me, it's ALWAYS the same nostril :S

I actually had one while I was DRIVING home from school, and I was still about 10 minutes away on the HIGHWAY.

Luckily... I had a Kleenex in my pocket :D

I always get them randomly during the cold Canadian winter. I've gotten my nose cauterized at least 3 times, and it still bleeds =(

When I asked the question I knew the answer was no but I wondered whether it ever happened in rare cirumstances.

Offtopic: SDM, have you tried applying vaseline to the inside of your nostrils? Nose bleeds that are caused by cold happen when the skin contracts becoming stretched; skin is more likely to break under pressure when dry. Using a humidifier or a bowl of water near a radiator should also help.

i was wondering the same thing.
in fact i read this question on yahoo answers.
they said the same, it's not possible in real life, they agreed that they do that in anime in order to censore male erections when they're sexually stimulated.
