Men May Fracture Penis During “Doggy Style” Sex

Nov 14, 2017

Recently, a team of scientists in Brazil set out to learn more about specific sexual positions and penis fracture.

They looked at the medical records of 90 men between the ages of 18 and 66 who had been treated for fractures an emergency department in Rio de Janeiro between 2006 and 2016. Eighty-seven men were heterosexual, and 3 were homosexual.

The men were asked how the fracture had occurred and, if it was the result of sexual activity, what position they were engaged in at the time.

Sixty-nine of the men (77%) fractured their penis during sex. The three gay men had done so during “doggy style” sex. For the rest, the fracture had happened during vaginal intercourse. In this group, just over half were using “doggy style,” 35% were using man-on-top, and 14% were using the woman-on-top position.

Twenty-three of the cases were considered severe. In this group, over half of the fractures occurred during “doggy style” intercourse.

Fourteen men also had injuries to the urethra, the tube that semen travels through during ejaculation.
