“Woman on Top” Sex Position Responsible for Most Penis Fractures

A man’s penis is his pride, but certain sex positions can hurt his pride and manhood for a long time.

“Woman on top and “doggy style,” two of the most enjoyed sex positions, are reportedly the riskiest positions related to penile fractures. They are also responsible for subsequent developing penile dysfunction.

But it is the “woman on top” position that takes the prize for fracturing a man’s penis the most. Some patients recalled hearing an audible “crack” at the moment of fracture.

From the patients examined, most were injured during heterosexual intercourse, with a smaller number representing homosexual intercourse. The research also found that mere penis manipulation could cause damage to the penis.

“Our hypothesis is that when woman is on top she usually controls the movement with her entire body weight landing on the erect penis, not being able to interrupt it when the penis suffers a wrong way penetration, because the harm is usually minor in woman with no pain but major in the penis.”

The findings were extracted from a research conducted between January 2000 and March 2013, of patients at three emergency hospitals University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas (PUC), Campinas, and Mario Gatti Municipal Hospital (HMMG).

These findings suggest that the traditional “missionary,” “man on top” sex position is probably the safest. This is because, “…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, minimizing it.”
