A British man died of a suspected heart attack after taking Viagra and having sex with a prostitute in Thailand. Michael Soden, 54, was found dead in his guest house by a maid who became concerned after noticing he hadn’t left the room the next day.
She said she had seen Mr Soden, who was on holiday in Pattaya, going back to his room with a young sex worker the night before. Police who searched the room and discovered boxes of Viagra believe he died after having sex with the woman.
Senior officer Pitak Neonsaeng said: ‘There was Viagra in the room and other medicine. We’re not totally sure of the cause of death yet but we think it’s a heart attack.
‘He had taken the girl back to his room, taken Viagra and then died. We think that after he had finished his activities he went to bathroom and died. ‘There were no signs of assault or robbery so we’re not looking for any suspects. We have sent the body away for examination. Details have been passed to the British Embassy.’

He added that Mr Soden had been using prostitutes ‘every day during his stay’. The maid used a spare key to enter the guesthouse the next day.
She said: ‘It’s normal for men to take girls back to their room. I saw him go back with a girl at night time but we didn’t see him the next day. ‘We knocked on the door but there was no reply so we went inside.
‘The British man was always friendly and happy. It was a shock to see he had died. I don’t think he had been dead for very long after we found him.’
