Sex injuries are more common than one might think. In fact, the British erotic retail chain Ann Summers (think Adam and Eve on the other side of the pond) conducted a survey and found that nearly a third of sexually active people will experience some kind of sex-related injury each year, proving that sometimes love indeed does hurt.
The best way to avoid injury during sex is to know just what might cause harm. Here are nine possible sex injuries -- and just how to avoid them.
Now here’s a story you wouldn’t want to tell your coworkers. “My husband fractured his penis during sex.” Yes, you heard us right -- his member can actually be injured during sex.
Medical Daily reports that one particular position may responsible for the greatest amount of penile fractures during sex. That position is called the “reverse cowgirl.” In this position, the woman climbs on top of the man and faces away from him during sex.
Here’s the thing: The reverse cowgirl has become quite popular due to its possible orgasm-increasing potential, so don’t rule it out altogether. If you are going to give this position a try, be careful. Take it easy on your man to prevent injuries.
