Ouch! These are the most common sex injuries

by Adult Match Maker - 21 September 2015 - 29 Member Comments

We’ve all woken up with the odd bruise or scratch from a particularly energetic bout of sex, but for many people, sex injuries can go a little or a lot further than a slight head knock against the headboard. 

Missing items

It's all fun and games until the vibrator gets stuck!

In the US sex toy injuries have doubled since 2007 and there was a noticeable spike in 2011/12 believed to be due to the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey.  A study found that vibrators were involved in 74% of injuries, 13% involved dildos, 2% rings, and 11% other.

Missing isn’t really the right term. It’s more that they’re just stuck and you can’t get them out. 

The problem is more likely with anal play (which account for 78% of "missing" items), as items can just keep going in. Be sure to only use toys that are designed for the anus - you’ll notice they have stoppers so they can’t "go missing" so you won’t find yourself in the emergency room. 

Fractured penis

Guys this isn't a joke! This is actually a real thing, and it’s probably more common than we'd like to think. It happens when the erect penis is put under so much pressure that the penile corpora buckles - and it can even make a popping sound. And yes, it’s as painful as it sounds. 

A dedicated team of Brazilian researchers looked into the most common causes and found that the reverse cowgirl position was the number one reason behind it. While we’re not going to tell you to stop enjoying the reverse cowgirl, it’s a good reminder to be very careful. 

Vaginal tears & torn frenulum

Both of these injuries are usually the result of too much friction and not enough lubrication.

Vaginas are tough - but they're not invincible. Vaginal tears or bruising can occur during rough sex or when your body hasn't started to generate enough lubrication before penetration. 

The frenulum connects the foreskin to the glans or head of the penis. Lack of lubrication during sex or masturbation can cause it to tear. This can be quite distressing as it typically causes heavy bleeding and, as it's made up of erogenous tissue and is highly sensitive, can result in significant pain.

Fractures, sprains and dislocations

Sex in the shower!  What's not to love?  The only issue is that slippery surfaces combined with sexual gymnastics can be a dangerous combination. 

And lube ... it's great right! Yes, until it ends up on floorboards or tiles and you find yourself flying through the air as soon as your feet touch the floor. We've even heard of a broken ankle when someone fell off the bed whilst indulging in a threesome. Way to go!

Even changing positions in the heat of the moment can be the catalyst for an injury with emergency rooms dealing with broken noses, dislocated fingers and countless embarrassed faces.  

Pulled muscles

As much fun as kinky sexual positions might look on paper or in porn, be sure to limber up before you go releasing your inner acrobat. Torn ligaments and pulled muscles aren’t uncommon when it comes to bedroom antics, and it’s often because that’s the only time you’re putting your body through sustained periods of movement that aren’t quite the norm.

And with our bodies flooded with endorphins at the point of time the injury occurs it's often not until the cool down period or even the next morning we realise the extent of the injury.

Sex can be a sport that’s as dangerous as it is fun. You can leave the helmets, knee pads, and mouth guards in the closet, but remember safe sex is about more than just condoms!

    69 with an amorous lady. In high passion she experimented with a rotating motion rather than the superior deep sucking attack. Her bottom teeth made a circumference cut just below the glans. Not particularly painful but took a long time to heal and caused an adhesion. It quite ruined the afternoon.

    I once had a friend who wanted to role play doctor/patient. So, he went to the adult shop to buy one of those "things" which I cant think of at the moment, which a doctor puts inside a woman and opens her up to take a pap smear. He bought it at the adult shop, so it was really a toy, not a real one. Well, he did his job and looked inside, etc, and all was well......well, until the next day anyway. When I went to the toilet to have a pee, the toilet was full of blood, and the pain urinating was excrutiating. I had no choice but to humble myself and NOT go to my local doctor, but to go to another clinic, and I had to tell the doctor what happened. The doc took a look and told me that my friend had bruised my bladder with this so called "instrument" toy he bought, and I had an infection. I had to go on antibiotics for 2 weeks and no sex for that time, and put up with pain. I called my friend and told him GET RID OF THAT TOY. So, be careful. Another thing, the same doc told me NEVER put fruits or vegetables up a vagina without a condom on. Well, I learned that on too, the hard way. Zucchini can burn like crazy and secondly, hey guys, DON'T just shove it up there and pound it in us.... again, I was bruised badly. Live and learn!

    You left out spots of bruising or something that comes out a couple of days later from fisting even though you were more than ready, just partner may have not discussed how to do it the way you can handle beforehand.

    Fractured penis yeah been there. It didn't hurt at the time , ok maybe I said ouch, but I kept going.
    Was when I went to pee an hour later and saw a purple black lumpy thing that used to be my cock that it started to hurt.
    After a couple of girls looked at it I was off to the emergency unit.. After all the doctors and staff had had a look and a laugh while my girlfriend sat looking embarrassed they gave me two options wait and see or surgery immediately.
    Guess which I choose wait your not taking a scalpel to me little man....
    So while it looked bad it was up and working a few days later against doctors orders but I had to know it still functioned. Now it's fine perhaps with a few mor lumpy bit but the lady is prob happier.
    That's my tale

    I find it interesting how many guys on here show no respect for the women, with your degrading comments about ramming your cock up her ass.. Women deserve respect too.. Even if you're joking, it shows why the women on here are so wary of you, and ultimately all other guys on here!!

    Yeah, we all like a nice vigorous sweaty session of sex, but unless you're into bdsm, your not meant to be hurting the girl.

    Then there is the tongue . . .
    It was a warm afternoon and we were in a missionary position, in a tight embrace with arms locked tight around each other. We were kissing passionately and the intensity was building towards a climax. The chemistry between us was extreme and it was one of those moments when we climaxed together. At the point of climax she sucked on my tongue and tore the webbing underneath. I heard it rip . . and felt it. I thought she had sucked my tongue out of my mouth. To the bathroom with a mouthful of blood. I swear it didn't stop bleeding for hours, I was spitting up blood all afternoon. I really thought I was going to end up in emergency answering the questions about how I obtained such an injury. The good news is that it all healed nicely but was sore for about a week.

    I had one guy fucking me doggy style, ramming me very hard, when he accidentally slipped out and rammed his penis right into my ass. And he had a very thick cock. Oh my gosh so painful, there was even blood. No trip to the emergency room or anything though lol.

    That's happened to me too. No bleeding for me but so much pain that I felt like I was going to vomit instantly. My guy too was very well endowed.

    Yes I did that once but she just screamed then said give me a minute to get used to the size - and then said you can finish off in there if you want as I actually like cause it makes me cum so much stronger. Well after that she had many many stronger cums - such memories.
