When it comes to getting frisky, it seems like head injuries can be more than just a figure of speech! In the game of passion, both ladies (10%) and gents (8%) are prone to these accidental mishaps. It's no surprise that these incidents often involve some serious head-banging action, whether it's an enthusiastic clash of skulls or a rendezvous with that oh-so-appropriately named headboard. Who knew that a bedside table could become a not-so-romantic partner in crime? So, next time you're getting steamy, keep an eye out for those perilous perils lurking around the bedroom, because even the throes of passion can't protect you from an unexpected head encounter!
Eye injuries during sex are relatively less common but still pose a risk. Females experience eye injuries at a rate of 5%, while males have a slightly lower rate of 4%. We don't recommend donning a pair of safety goggles as that may be a mood killer. So, while keeping your eyes on the prize is important just don't get them fingered or poked.
Mouth injuries affect females more frequently, with a rate of 11%, compared to males at 7%. What on earth could be making that disparity? Digging further into that question could result in a bit of a mouthful.
WTF are 2-3% of couples up to? Has the majority of the population missed something? Breaking the ice is really all that should be broken and of course a few hearts along the way!
When it comes to getting steamy, pulled muscles and sprains can be an unfortunate side effect for both genders. Males (21%) seem to bear the brunt of these amorous accidents, just slightly more than females (18%). As expected, these common mishaps can put a damper on the mood. Remember, folks, before diving into the depths of passion, a good warm-up routine is essential. It's all about staying flexible and avoiding those unexpected twists and turns in the pursuit of pleasure!
Both males and females experience incidents involving foreign objects stuck inside the body, with females at 6% and males at 3%. This injury has got to be the hardest one to fib your way through at the hospital. No one is going to believe that you were gardening naked at the allotment, tripped and fell on your vegetable patch! It's best to walk into the waiting room as best you can and remain standing!
Friction burns are more prevalent among males (30%) compared to females (27%) and are the most common injury sustained during sex. As Woody Allen said, 'Remember, if you smoke after sex you're doing it too fast!'
