Sex Injuries: the statistics

By Ekaterina Mironova

Statistics show that every year 240 million people have sex every single day. That’s 87660 million times a year. If that boggles your mind, consider this: out of those having sex, around 33% of them suffer some sort of injury during sex, or caused by sex. Whether they fall out of bed or trip on a vibrator, that’s around 28927.8 million people who suffer a sex-induced injury every year.

So what do you avoid if you want to have safer sex? If you thought that sticking to the bedroom after dark was the safest option, you’d be wrong: bedroom sex can get just as wild as anywhere else! In fact, the bedframe is at the top of the list of the most broken objects that fall victim to our wild antics, and the bedroom is number five on the list of top ten dangerous places to have sex.

A closer look: the top sex injuries

While you may think that the top sex injuries might include things like hand-cuff strain or hot wax burns, you’d be wrong. The most common sex injuries are also the most boring ones: neck strain takes the number one spot, while pulled muscles and back strain come in a close second and third. Carpet burns are next up on the list (ouch!) followed by strained shoulders, bruised joints and bashed elbows and knees.

A closer look: the most dangerous spots

So if you’re trying to avoid getting a sex injury and becoming a statistic, which are the top spots to avoid? Despite the comfy padding and cushioned exterior – forget about the sofa. It has claimed more victims than you’d think! The stairs are next up for those couples who just couldn’t wait to get to the bedroom, and the car is a close third. The bedroom only comes in after the shower, and is followed by a chair, the kitchen table, and the toilet. Who said sex only happened after dark in bed?!
