Cow­girl riski­est po­si­tion

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MIIDWEEK WOMEN on top is THE most dan­ger­ous way to bonk, say boffins.

Cow­girl and re­verse cow­girl shagging are re­spon­si­ble for more knob in­juries than any other form of sex, they claim.

The woman-on-top in­ter­course po­si­tion was deemed re­spon­si­ble for HALF of ALL pe­nile frac­tures sus­tained dur­ing sex in cases recorded at three hospitals, ac­cord­ing to re­searchers in Brazil.

Sci­en­tists say this may be 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”.

The harm is usu­ally mi­nor for her and with no pain – but ma­jor in the pe­nis.

Po­si­tions in­volv­ing the woman on all fours was in­volved in 29 per cent of frac­tures.

Mean­while, the safest po­si­tion in the bed­room was re­vealed as the man-on-top – or mis­sion­ary po­si­tion.

The au­thors ex­am­ined the cases of 44 men who at­tended three hospitals in the city of Camp­inas, Brazil, with a sus­pected frac­tured pe­nis over a 13-year pe­riod.

Forty-two of the cases were con­firmed by doc­tors.

Twenty-eight frac­tures were sus­tained dur­ing het­ero­sex­ual sex, four dur­ing ho­mo­sex­ual sex, six af­ter “pe­nis ma­nip­u­la­tion” and four in cir­cum­stances which re­main un­clear.

Half of the pa­tients de­scribed hear­ing an au­di­ble CRACK and feel­ing pain af­ter the in­ci­dent.

Most went to hospi­tal within the next five or six hours.

The study au­thors noted that the in­jury is rel­a­tively un­com­mon and can cause em­bar­rass­ment among those who do suf­fer a frac­tured pe­nis, mean­ing they of­ten put off seek­ing med­i­cal treat­ment.

The pa­per con­cluded: “Our study sup­ports the fact that sex­ual in­ter­course with ‘woman on top’ is the po­ten­tially riski­est sex­ual po­si­tion re­lated to pe­nile frac­ture.

“When the man is con­trol­ling the move­ment, he has bet­ter chances of stop­ping the pen­e­tra­tion en­ergy in re­sponse to the pain re­lated to the pe­nis harm, min­imis­ing it.”

The study was first pub­lished in the jour­nal Ad­vances in Urol­ogy.
