If you've ever had a sex-related injury, know that you're absolutely not alone. A new survey of 1,662 people by Superdrug OnlineDoctor found that of those surveyed, 1,023 had suffered a sex injury at some point in their life. That's almost 62 percent of people who have ended up with anything from a sore vagina, to vaginal tearing, to a urinary tract infection, to a rug burn to, well, you name it. It really doesn't take much to injure yourself when you're getting it on — especially during rough sex (37 percent), as the survey found.
While the number one injury that women sustain is vaginal pain of some sort, with 57 percent of women reporting this as their sex injury, not far behind in second and third place are cramped muscles, at 35 percent and back pain, at 31 percent. Sex injuries are actually so common, that 53 percent of the survey's respondents had to go to the doctor for treatment and 13 percent ended up in the emergency room — definitely not how one wants to end a night of hot sex.
Although nothing is fool-proof, especially if you just happen to be one of those clumsy people of the world (if only I had a penny for every time I fell off a bed during sex), there are some positions that are a bit more "dangerous" than others. Here are the top nine positions that are most likely to end in an injury for women.
