Dangerous sex positions have been outlined a new study called the “relationship between sexual position and severity of penile fracture” published on the International Journal of Impotence Research. This research analysed which sex positions were the most dangerous for men.
The research was carried out by Brazilian doctors.
The doctors examined 90 patients who had been diagnosed with penile fractures and subsequently assessed the dangers of different sex positions by analyzing the mechanism of each individual’s injury.
“The fracture is caused when the tubes supporting an erection bend and pop out-of-place after being thrust against a hard object such as a partner’s pubic bone”.
Amongst others, here are the top three (3) dangerous sex positions;
This usually involves the female on top of the male partner. This style was responsible for 24% of penile fractures in the research.
This is regarded as the least exotic style; it is often regarded as the most boring and cliche. It features a man on top of the female partner, face to face. It is also one of the most intimate styles know to couples.
Missionary was the second most threatening, causing 25% of penile fracture cases.
This style ranked number one (1) on the chart. It was the biggest offender. It accounted for 41% of penile fractures.
Ironically it is said that this style is not the best of the three styles in relation to female orgasm.
It was found that the cowgirl or reverse-cowgirl is the best sex position alongside the good old missionary position.
The research also found that the best penetration angle during sex is 30-40 degrees.
NHS figures revealed that about 18 cases were treated by hospitals in the UK last year, with the highest risk occurring during ‘vigorous sexual intercourse’.
Men in their 20s or 30s are more likely to suffer, because of their better fitness and firmer erections.
“There are, of course, extreme examples, such as the doctors in Seattle who had to treat a patient who attempted to penetrate his wife with a flying leap.”
The full results of the study were published in the International Journal of Impotence Research.
