Sex-Related Injuries Are Surprisingly Common
Watch your back, neck and fingers.
Having sex can be dangerous to your health – at least according to a new survey.
The poll of 1,000 adults in the UK also found that 2 percent of respondents suffered broken bones in the heat of passion, while 5 percent had to take time off from work because of “sex-related injuries.” One third reported suffering lesser injuries such as an ache or strain.
“Sex is a risky business these days,” said a spokesman for the phone recycling business, www.Phonepiggybank.com, which commissioned the survey.
The top 5 injuries, according to the poll: a pulled muscle; an injured back; carpet burns; a cricked neck; and battered elbows and knees. (The tenth most common injury: “Bending fingers back.”)
The top 5 places people were injured during sex: the sofa; on the stairs; in or on the car; in the shower; and in the bedroom. (One in 50 respondents said they had fallen off the bed.)
The top 5 household items destroyed in moments of passion: bed frames; wine and beer glasses; picture frames; chairs and tea cups. (Walls placed a close sixth.)
Said the Phonepiggybank spokesman, “Our advice would be to remove any dangerous objects well before you start making love—and take care while in the act.” (Daily Mail)
