There are stories that make you cringe and shudder, then there are stories that make your insides squirm and your body involuntarily quiver. This one falls in the latter. You have been warned.
Real life sex injuries are what nightmares are made of, at least this one is. Unmarried and still living in his parent’s house, young Suman (we’ll call him Suman) had snuck his girlfriend into his room to do things only married people are supposed to do. Like many unmarried couples who get the chance to do married couple things, Suman and his girlfriend were going at it with significant vigor in the small bed of his dark bedroom. Things took a turn for the worse when Suman felt a sharp pain in his member and shortly after went completely soft. Hurriedly, the couple turned on the lights to find the sheets red with blood and more of it shooting from Suman’s penis. Panic ensued and they rushed to the hospital. Suman had ruptured his urethra. The doctor ended up shoving cotton swabs up his urethra (pee hole), which goes without saying, was extremely painful.
Sex injuries are pretty common and although not all of them are horrific and painful, it is a good idea to avoid the embarrassment and pain. so here are some of the common sex injuries that you would be better off knowing about.
1) PENIS FRACTURES
You read that right. Although the penis is not a bone in the body, there is a very real possibility that you can fracture your member. A penial fracture occurs when the erect penis is suddenly bent, causing a tear in the tunica albuginea membrane. This membrane surrounds the core of the penis — the area responsible for erection — and if it tears, blood leaks out to the surrounding tissue. Men who experience a penial fracture will hear a cracking sound followed by severe pain, swelling, and dark bruising of the penis. Constant screaming from pain is known to promptly follow.
This injury usually occurs among men who are participating in vigorous sex and in some cases, aggressive masturbation.
If you suffer from a penial fracture, seek medical attention immediately. Your doctor can usually detect a fracture with a physical exam and surgery is usually recommended. If left untreated, a penial fracture can result in erectile dysfunction and deformity.

2) FRENULUM BREVE
Frenulum breve is a condition in which the frenulum of the penis, which is an elastic band of tissue under the glans penis that connects to the foreskin and helps contract it over the glans, is too short and thus restricts the movement of the foreskin. According to a research, this condition occurs in 5% of uncircumcised men.
The ridge of skin beneath the head of the penis, joining it to the foreskin, is probably the most sensitive area of the male anatomy. Snapping that, or getting a cut there is not something any guy wants.
There is a surgery called frenuloplasty where the frenulum is cut vertically and the two tiny flaps of skin that this creates are sewn into the foreskin with a couple of stitches. These dissolve in a fortnight, and after a couple of weeks most men have fully recovered and are able to resume sexual activity.

There are times when we get a little ahead of ourselves during sex. It could be because of all the pornographic filth we indulge in so much, but we
go in with high ambitions when it comes to the sack. Sometimes we all over estimate our gymnastic ability, particularly when your body is numbed by the endorphins released during sex. That’s why it’s not usually until the morning after that you notice your neck is stiff from trying to lick your own back in the throes
of passionate sex. Or your quads hurt from… you’re not even sure what.
Now we aren’t asking you to limber up while you make your partner watch you do stretches on the floor, but you should know what your body is capable of taking and how far you should push yourself. Nevertheless, if a pulled muscle is worth the 15 minutes of ecstasy, go ahead and swing your leg over your own head.
PAIN LEVEL: 5/10
4) SEXUAL HEADACHES
Headaches caused by sexual activity aren’t usually cause for concern, but sometimes they can signal serious health problems like low blood pressure, brain tumor, or bleeding into the brain. Sexual headaches occur in both men and women typically before or during an orgasm, or immediately following sex. These headaches can feel like a sudden throbbing pain, or a dull ache that slowly builds as sex intensifies.
Consult your doctor if it’s the first time you’ve experienced this type of headache, or if it’s accompanied by other symptoms such as stiff neck, vomiting, confusion, or trouble with coordination.
PAIN LEVEL: 4/10
5) HEART ATTACK
It might be a great way to go if you’re riding your 70’s, but it is a major cause of concern if you’re still a young guy. Vigorous sexual activity nearly triples a person’s heart attack risk in the hours immediately afterward, especially if the person isn’t very active. Although not too common, here are a few signs to be wary of.
- Chest pain that lasts a few minutes, or goes away and then returns. The pain’s severity varies and may feel like severe pressure, squeezing, or fullness in the chest area.
- Shortness of breath that appears around the same time as the pain, or before the pain starts.
- Irregular or racing heartbeat, also known as heart palpitations.
- fatigue, nausea, back or stomach pain, and light-headedness. PAIN LEVEL: 9/10
This isn’t exactly an injury as such, but it still can be extremely annoying and disgusting. Smegma is the end result of dead skin cells and fatty oils primarily shed from certain parts of our genitalia; the inner cavity of the foreskin in men. Medically, it is good for the penis and it keeps it lubricated and clean. For the uncircumcised males, it helps the foreskin easily slide on and off the glans, or head, of the penis without irritation during sexual intercourse.
However, too much of this buildup can be embarrassing and disgusting for you and your partner. You can kiss any chance of oral sex goodbye. The best bet is to clean it regularly with warm water and a light soap mixture. If the problem persists, you can opt to get it checked by your doctor.
