Hi, girls!
This is called "orgasmic cephalalgia," and is not that common, but it does occur and it's quite distressing to those who have them.
Usually is a sharp, severe pain that comes on suddenly when the person is nearing orgasm.

Are your men prone to other types of headaches, like migraine headache, in a daily life?

People who get this sex headaches, also, tend to suffer from migraines.
Researchers aren't sure about the precise cause of the headaches, although they're probably a type of "exertion" headache, in which the pain comes on during vigorous physical activity.
During sex (or vigorous exercise), the body releases catecholamines that could act as a trigger on the blood vessels in susceptible persons, or the chemicals could act on certain sensitive areas of the brain to trigger a migraine.
Is you boyfriend getting them frequently (sex headaches)?

In most of the cases, this sexual headache will occur for several times and after that will never come again.

Stress, tiredness and a history of headaches are factors that may put a person at greater risk of coital headaches.
Since this type of headache is considered as exertion induced one, slowing down the sexual activity and switching to a less active position, can help avoiding some headache attacks.

Common, non-narcotic pain relievers, such as naproxen (500mg) or anaprox (550mg) taken an hour or two before sex can prevent some sex headaches. Ibuprofen (at least 400mg or more) can also work.
