Men May Fracture Penis During “Doggy Style” Sex

Nov 14, 2017

While intercourse led to most of the fractures in this study, about 23% had other causes, including masturbation and penile manipulation (18%), rolling over on an erect penis (3%), and blunt trauma (2%).

Overall, penis fracture is rare, but men should still be careful. Forceful vaginal thrusting can cause the penis to collide with a woman’s pubic bone. And if not done cautiously, the “doggy style” and woman-on-top positions could make the penis bend in an awkward angle, leading to fracture.  

No matter how it happens, penis fracture is a medical emergency. It is often accompanied by a popping sound, pain, bleeding, or swelling. Men who think they have fractured their penis should see a doctor immediately.
