Researchers Have Figured Out Which Sex Positions Are The Most Dangerous, So Be Careful Out There, Bros
Sex is the best, right? That being said, no one wants to be injured doing it. And we really don’t want to accidentally break our dicks by doing something crazy.
Thankfully, there are people out there, let’s call them researchers, because that’s what they are, that are here to lend a helping hand.
4. The Cowgirl Lean Back
While this is definitely a fun sex position, the damage it can do just sounds awful.
This position puts strain on the penis and can bend it the wrong way. Like an elbow or knee, your erect penis can be “hyperextended” if you put too much or too frequent downward pressure on the shaft, a study from the University of California, San Francisco found.
Over time, this can lead to peyronie’s disease—a buildup of plaques that causes your rod to bend while erect. This can make sex difficult or even impossible in extreme cases.
3. Doggy Style
Ah, doggy, the favorite position of oh so many, both male and female. What could possibly go wrong here?
…research in Brazil found that 29% of men’s penis fractures were caused by this move.
Okay then! Moving on…
2. The Pogo Stick
This one certainly makes sense. Any sex involving doing it while standing up is usually ridiculous.
The move is risky because it is likely to put strain on the guys back. This can cause long term back problems. Jiggling around while standing up also means your run the risk of falling over and the woman is at risk of being dropped.
The raunchy position, which is also one of the best positions to make a woman orgasm, was deemed responsible for half of all penile fractures according to researchers in Brazil.
Scientists believe it is because the woman controls the penis with her entire body weight landing on it and is unable to interrupt it when it suffers a “wrong way penetration”. Ouch.
So there you go. Maybe the missionary position isn’t such a bad way to go after all, huh, bros?
