Sex is amazing. Most of us love the idea of sex. While sex is mostly pleasurable, today we are going to talk about its downsides. Science has told us a lot of things over the years like gin drinkers are psychopaths, running is contagious and nice folks have more sex.
Another thing that Science claims are the dangers of having sex the wrong way. Many a time, there are cases of things going really really wrong while having sex. So wrong that just the imagery of it in the head hurts. Ouch!
Here are some sex positions that are dangerous and can lead to dire consequences, if not done properly.
1. Doggy style
The Position: A person bends over, crouches on all fours (usually on hands and knees), or lies on their abdomen, for sexual intercourse.
Why It’s Risky: If penetration is done forcefully at the wrong angle, there may be vaginal tearing. So adjusting the positioning is important. Often if the positioning is wrong, the penis can go into the anus, which was not prepared for it and lead to anal tearing as well.
2. Oral Sex
The Position: This sexual activity involves the stimulation of the genitalia of a person by another person using the mouth (including the lips, tongue or teeth) or throat.
Why It’s Risky: Apparently, oral sex (also called 69) can result in pink eye. A study done in 2007, published in the International Journal of STD and AIDS, suggested that 9% of people studied were infected with chlamydial conjunctivitis after their partner ejaculated into their eye. Also there are several risks associated with oral sex. It can get riskier if you or your partner have mouth ulcers, gum infections or genital sores.
3. Reverse Cowgirl
The Position: This sex position involves intercourse with the female on top, facing away from her partner. Regular Cowgirl is a woman on top, facing her lover.
Why It’s Risky: According to a study published in Advances in Urology, a woman on top was potentially the riskiest sexual position causing penile fractures and reverse cowgirl, specifically, triggered the majority of "cracks" to the penis.
The Position: This sex position involves a female who lies on her back with the male on top and with his face opposite hers.
Why It’s Risky: If the woman has a short vaginal canal, she might suffer from severe cervical bruising or other abrasions from deep thrusts. Also, the penis rubbing against the urethra can cause urinary tract infections.
5. Counter Top Sex or The Eager Chef
The Position: This sex position involves a female sitting on a buffet while the guy stands on his toes in front of her. The sex is spontaneous.
Why It’s Risky: There have been instances when the guy's penis completely missed the target and his penis ran right into the counter, according to Justin Lehmiller of Harvard University.
6. The Swiss Ball Blitz
The Position: The penetrating partner is seated on the ball with the feet on the floor. The receiving partner faces away from the seated partner, backs up and sits in the lap of the giving partner.
Why It’s Risky: This position might add some bounce to your thrusts, but there are chances that while the penis comes fully out of the vagina and then goes back in, the penis might break. This is because the Swiss ball creates an unusual amount of up and down inertia, too much oomph could lead to your penis slipping out of your girl just before gravity and momentum bring her full weight crashing back down on the guy.
7. The Pogo Stick
The Position: The man holds up the female's weight entirely and bending her backwards to facilitate the old in-and-out, and bouncing her up and down on the penis.
Why It’s Risky: This activity may lead to back pain or strains for the guy. Also, one could topple if your footing is unsure and the woman might just be dropped while this happens.
8. The Butter Churner
The Position: In this advanced sex position, the woman lies on her back with her legs raised above and behind her head. The man then squats and penetrates her from above. The thrusting motion in this position is similar to making butter in an old fashioned butter churner, which is how this position gets its name. The woman's head is positioned lower than her heart in this position so the blood often rushes to her head, which can lead to a more intense orgasm.
Why It’s Risky: Men, in this situation, must be cautious in this position, as vigorous thrusting could cause neck injuries. This position also requires some spinal flexibility.
9. The Lap Dance
The Position: The man sits on the chair and the woman sits on the man.
Why It’s Risky: There are chances that the woman might fall off the man and bust her head open. This can actually happen. So, better be prepped up with some serious pole dancing techniques.
10. The Randy Raft
The Position: This one involves climbing onto a raft in shallow water, and lying on your stomach with your butt and legs dangling over the edge. The man then grabs the thighs and pushes in like a wheelbarrow, entering the woman. He can then pull her incredibly close for the deepest possible penetration.
Why It’s Risky: If you can't swim, this is probably a good position to avoid forever.
11. Fondling With Boobs
The Position: This sexual activity involves the stimulation of breasts by gripping, pinching, clamping, biting, sucking or otherwise stimulating the nipple.
Why It’s Risky: If not done right, there are chances of penile fractures, not just with the pelvic bone, but when guys are in the process of trying to give a pearl necklace. Sometimes, because of too much force against the woman’s sternum, the penis might get fractured. If you’re not using any lube, the friction can cause some problems, too.
