7 Of The Most Common Injuries You Can Get From Sex

There are some pretty crap things that can happen during sex. Having a condom break is definitely one of them. Same with ripping a really loud one or realizing too late that your butt definitely wasn’t as clean as you thought it was. Ugh. Another bad thing that can happen during sex is getting injured.

Unfortunately, there are a number of ways you can get injured during sex, and some of them aren’t only painful. They can also be downright embarrassing. You don’t want to end up in the emergency room having to explain why you ended up with a twisted ankle and a pulled groin muscle do you? Well, it can happen.

Therefore, it’s important to be safe and use common sense when you’re getting it on. And it’s also a wise idea to not try any *crazy* sex positions. If you do, be prepared to literally suffer the consequences. These are seven common sex injuries than can happen when you’re getting it on. Be careful!

Something Gets Stuck Inside You

This is why we shouldn't be sticking random foreign objects inside of us, kids. It's bad enough when you get a tampon or a condom stuck up your hoohah. You can also get sex toys *lost* in there, too.

Rug Burn

It might be called rug burn, put you can actually get it from almost any sort of fabric from your carpet to your blankets to even bae's sweatshirt. You might not think it would be that bad, but it can be pretty painful, especially when it is on some more sensitive parts of your anatomy.

A Sore Back

You can blame *not warming up,* being out of shape, or you can blame the fact that your back went into a position that it should never have been in. Sore backs and pulled muscles frequently happen when we try different sex positions and think that we're a lot more flexible than we actually are.

Tender Vagina

This can happen to you whether you're a virgin or this definitely isn't your first time at the rodeo. Having a sore vagina can result from not using enough lube, having bae go in and out of you too fast, or having a lot of sex in one evening. And of course there are other more *creative* ways you can end up with a tender vag, so be safe.

Knocked Teeth

Are your lips burning just from the thought of this one? You combine some vigorous humping with an attempt at a kiss, and you have some very sore mouths. You might even end up with a split lip. And your mouth can also take a literal beating from random knees, elbows, and even the side of nightstands. Watch out.

A Sore Head

  Sex can sometimes result in you and bae knocking heads. And then there is the dreaded head-into-headboard scenario. You know that it's going to happen so you try to be extra careful, but it happens anyways. It's the same with all of us.

Urinary Tract Infection

You might not have thought of this one, but it still technically falls into the injury category because it means that down there isn't operating at 100 percent. Unfortunately, having lots of sex can actually increase your risk of getting a UTI. It's worse if you already have a sore vag from bae being a bit too intense down below.
