Did you know you can actually break your penis (or your partners)? Yep and apparently there’s one position in which that can happen if you’re not doing it right.
The position is called the reverse cowgirl – or in our books it’s the reverse cowboy and it’s been dubbed the world’s most dangerous sex position because it can lead to what’s known as penile fracture and if you think that sounds painful, apparently, we don’t speak from experience here, it is.
According to one doctor, Dr. Karan Raj, this position is responsible for 50% of all penile fracture accidents.
What is the reverse cowboy?
The reverse cowboy is a sexual position in which the person who is receiving penetration (the bottom) faces away from their partner and straddles them, while facing in the opposite direction. The top lies on his back and allows his partner to control the movement and depth of penetration.
This position is known for providing a unique and intimate view for both partners, and can be enjoyable for those who enjoy deep penetration.
However, it is important to communicate with your partner and ensure that both parties are comfortable and consent to any sexual activity.
So how does penile fracture happen in this position? Well, If the person who is topping accidentally slips out and then forcefully re-enters, it could cause a penile fracture or if the bottom sits on the penis at the wrong angle, this could also cause a fracture.
What does a penile fracture feel like?
A penile fracture is a rare but serious injury that can occur during sexual activity. It usually happens when the erect penis is forcefully bent or snapped, causing a tear in the tunica albuginea, which is the fibrous tissue that surrounds the corpora cavernosa (the two long, cylindrical chambers in the penis that fill with blood during an erection). By the way its extremely painful.
The symptoms of a penile fracture typically include:
- A popping or cracking sound: You may hear a popping or cracking sound at the time of the injury.
- Sudden loss of erection: The penis will immediately become flaccid (not erect).
- Pain and swelling: There will be sudden pain and swelling in the penis, which may be accompanied by bruising or discoloration.
- Difficulty urinating: You may have difficulty urinating or notice blood in your urine.
- Deformity of the penis: There may be an obvious deformity in the shape or appearance of the penis.
If you suspect that you may have a penile fracture, it is important to seek medical attention right away. Delaying treatment can lead to long-term complications, including erectile dysfunction and penile curvature.
