Dangerous Sex

A UK poll of 1,000 adults found that one third of the respondents have sustained sex-related injuries before. Here is a summary of the findings and hopefully, you will heed these painful lessons. 

Dangerous Sex Locations
The most common injuries are pulled muscles, injured backs, carpet burns, cricked necks and bashed elbows or knees. The most dangerous locations to have sex are the sofa, stairs, car and van, shower and bedroom. One in 10 people said they or their partner have fallen off bed during sex. (In Singapore, a woman accidentally bit off her partner’s penis while giving him oral sex in a parked car, when it was hit by a van.)
 
When Sex Gets Experimental
More serious sexual injuries “are not an uncommon complaint”, says Billy Goldberg, PhD, a US-based assistant professor of emergency medicine, during an interview with ABCnews.com. He has seen “a lot of rectal foreign bodies” (such as a screwdriver) and cases of penile fractures. He says lost condoms are a common problem in female patients.
 
Penile fracture is almost always caused by an accident during intercourse, when the penis is jammed against an immovable object, such as her pelvic bone. These accidents are most common during “rodeo sex,” when your partner is bouncing around on top of you. To protect yourself, make sure that if she’s on top, she doesn’t lift more than 3 to 5cm off you on the upstroke. And tell her never to lean back against the direction of your erection while you’re inserted. Also, be careful when changing positions; it’s usually better to withdraw before you pick her up or flip her over.
 
Prevention - Still Better Than Cure
On how to avoid injuries, Debby Herbenick, PhD, a sex researcher at Indiana University in the US, suggests keeping pets out of the room to avoid getting scratched by them, stretching before sex if you are injury-prone, removing sharp objects and maintaining a distance from lit candles. Mache Seibel, PhD, a professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in the US, says: “If anything causes discomfort, it should be discontinued,” adding that most of the safety tips are just common sense.
