The Most Common Sex Injuries!

At some point in your sex life you’ll have ended up being injured in some way. It might simply be muscle strain from an over-ambitious sex marathon, or you may have slipped in a sex position and done some serious damage. Either way, sex injuries are pretty common in the bedroom.

However, some sex injuries are more common than others. These are the kind of things that happen all of the time, the things that cause people to head to the emergency room with an excuse that you acquired the injury while at the gym.

But there are also some spots that, while popular for people fucking, also seem to cause a number of sex injuries. So where are you most likely to hurt yourself during sex, and which injuries are the most common?

Shower sex? Maybe not

The bed is one of the best spots for sex. Whether you want to wake up with some morning sex in the spooning position to start your day or you are hoping to have an all-night sex marathon, your bed is the perfect place for it. It is the number one spot for sex, but sometimes it isn’t enough.

Sometimes we’ll want to get out of our comfort zones and try something new. Often we are tempted by the idea of fucking in the shower. The water running all over our body, the excuse to touch our partner as we soap them up? It is almost too much to resist.

And yet it seems that we should. Medics have recently warned that there has been a rise in the number of sex-related injuries among middle-aged men, and that the majority of them are best of “adventurous” sex. This includes the shower.

It seems that the majority of injuries are acquired during shower sex, which will certainly ruin the fun! A large number of middle-aged men are going to the emergency room because of things that have happened during shower sex, but we can imagine just how dangerous it is.

It is going to be slippery in the shower, and the tight space you and your partner are squeezing into is just asking for trouble. If you don’t take things slowly, you could find yourself in a lot of pain!

The most common sex injuries

Stephen Makinde, one of the top osteopaths in the country, has recently spoken about the number of different injuries that people have. It seems that they are as many different ways to injure yourself as there are sex positions.

He stated that we see every kind of injury possible, “from neck injuries to wrist fractures, ankle sprains and… back problems”. There are so many different ways for us to hurt ourself in the bedroom.

However, the most common sex injuries tend to go beyond these. Things like getting something stuck up the ass is one of the more popular ones, with excuses such as “I fell on it” being common in these circumstances. Objects in the vagina are also common occurrences, as condoms can slip off during sex and get stuck.

Tearing can be another issue to watch out for, usually from a lack of lubrication. Whether you are enjoying some anal fun or standard vanilla sex, lube can make the difference. It isn’t expensive to buy and it can really make the difference to your sex life!

However, the most common sex injury is a fractured penis. This tends to happen most of all during rough sex, or when you get a little too enthusiastic with sex. Take your time during sex instead of rushing and you’ll find that you are far less likely to hurt yourself.

Excuses for injuries

If you get injured in the bedroom that’s fine. It happens a lot. In fact it seems that the number of sex-related injuries reported has climbed around 80% in the last five years. However, despite how common it is, people are still ashamed of it.

People aren’t happy telling a doctor that they managed to sprain their wrist trying a new sex position, they’ll lie. They’ll claim to have been doing DIY or have hurt themselves at the gym.

The problem is that your doctor can usually see through this, and they’ll be able to help you a lot better if you just own up to it. Sure, it might feel embarrassing, but sex injuries are actually incredibly common.
