It’s “the most dangerous sex position in the world,” warns viral doctor
With cooler nights now, many couples may be tempted to warm things up in the bedroom.
But there is one sex position men may want to avoid, given that a doctor goes viral to claim he is responsible for 50% of penile fractures.
British surgeon Dr Karan Raj, who has 4.3 million followers on TikTok, claims that the “reverse cowgirl” is the “most dangerous sex position in the world” because a man’s penis can slide and be crushed by his partner’s pubic bone during erratic periods. push.
In a viral video that has already racked up over 2.1 million views, Raj explains that a penis is technically boneless, but the word “fracture” is used to describe a tear in the tunica tunica – a piece of tissue that allows for the penis to become enlarged and erect.
Men who tear their tunic albuginea usually need surgery to stitch up the tear. Those who don’t usually end up with erectile dysfunction and permanent curvature of their private part.
Raj, who previously went viral with COVID-19 prevention tips, even claimed that a penile fracture can make a man’s penis swell and look a bit like an eggplant.
Fans of The Doctor’s TikTok were disappointed with the news, with several gendered commentators revealing that the reverse cowgirl was their “favorite.”
However, others were so marked by the educational video that they vowed not to have sex in the hot position again.
“My husband is now afraid to come near me because of this!” One spectator wrote with humor.
Meanwhile, a man even claimed his penis fractured while having reverse sex with a cowgirl because he and his partner weren’t pushing in sync.
“I heard him crack!” the man confessed his member.
However, reverse cowgirl enthusiasts may not need to be so worried given that Raj’s claims are contradicted by a 2017 study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research.
This study did not name the reverse cowgirl among the most dangerous sex positions.
Instead, he said doggy style was the most common position for causing penile fractures, accounting for 41% of all cases.
In second place was the missionary, with the man at the top causing 25% of penile fractures – followed, in third place, by the woman at the top.
Fractures of the penis usually tear the tunica tunica horizontally, but in July, the British Medical Journal revealed the first documented case of a vertical fracture of the penis, suffered by a 40-year-old man during sexual intercourse.
The study did not specify what position the man was in, but it was reported that his “penis buckled against his partner’s perineum” – the area between the anus and the genitals – in due to an untimely push.
Subsequent MRI scans showed the man’s penis to have an inch (3 centimeters) vertical tear – rather than the more common horizontal variety.
Despite the unconventional nature of the fracture, surgeons were forced to treat the patient’s mutilated virility within 24 hours to avoid complications.
Meanwhile, in 2019, a horny man cut his member in half while wriggling with his girlfriend.
“It grew to the size of a bottle of wine. It was out of my control and scared me to death, ”the man said of his swollen member.
Fortunately, he too underwent successful surgery and made a full recovery without incident.
