18 Dangerous Sex Positions Can Be Causing Pain

Sex is amazing. Most of us love the idea of sex. While sex is mostly pleasurable, today we are going to talk about its downsides. Science has told us a lot of things over the years like gin drinkers are psychopaths, running is contagious and friendly folks have more sex.

The most dangerous sex position has been revealed; we have to say we are somewhat surprised at the results; this is not what we expected. Here are some sex positions that are dangerous and can lead to dire consequences, if not done correctly.

18 Dangerous Sex Positions Can Be Causing Pain

1. Doggy style

A person bends over, crouches on all fours (usually on hands and knees), or lies on their abdomen, for sexual intercourse.

If penetration is done forcefully at the wrong angle, there may be vaginal tearing. So adjusting the positioning is important. Often if the positioning is wrong, the penis can go into the anus, which was not prepared for it and lead to anal tearing as well.

2. Reverse Cowgirl

This sex position involves intercourse with the female on top, facing away from her partner. Regular Cowgirl is a woman on top, facing her lover.

According to a study published in Advances in Urology, a woman on top was potentially the riskiest sexual position causing penile fractures and reverse cowgirl, specifically, triggered the majority of “cracks” to the penis.

3. The Cowgirl

It’s been widely reported that “Cowgirl” is one of, if not the most, dangerous sex position that you could be a part of. According to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), similar to an elbow or knee, your penis can be hyperextended if you put too much or too frequent downward pressure on the shaft. Over time, this hyperextension can lead to peyronie’s disease – a buildup of plaques that causes your rod to bend while erect.

4. The Butter Churner

In this advanced sex position, the woman lies on her back with her legs raised above and behind her head. The man then squats and penetrates her from above. The thrusting motion in this position is similar to making butter in an old fashioned butter churner, which is how this position gets its name. The woman’s head is positioned lower than her heart in this position so the blood often rushes to her head, which can lead to a more intense orgasm.

Men, in this situation, must be cautious in this position, as vigorous thrusting could cause neck injuries. This position also requires some spinal flexibility.

5. The Pogo Stick

The man holds up the female’s weight entirely and bending her backwards to facilitate the old in-and-out, and bouncing her up and down on the penis.

Why It’s Risky: This activity may lead to back pain or strains for the guy. Also, one could topple if your footing is unsure and the woman might just be dropped while this happens.

6. The Swiss Ball Blitz

The penetrating partner is seated on the ball with the feet on the floor. The receiving partner faces away from the seated partner, backs up and sits in the lap of the giving partner.

The Swiss Ball Blitz

This position might add some bounce to your thrusts, but there are chances that while the penis comes fully out of the vagina and then goes back in, the penis might break. This is because the Swiss ball creates an unusual amount of up and down inertia, too much oomph could lead to your penis slipping out of your girl just before gravity and momentum bring her full weight crashing back down on the guy.

7. Counter Top Sex or The Eager Chef

This sex position involves a female sitting on a buffet while the guy stands on his toes in front of her. The sex is spontaneous.

There have been instances when the guy’s penis completely missed the target and his penis ran right into the counter, according to Justin Lehmiller of Harvard University.

8. Missionary

This sex position involves a female who lies on her back with the male on top and with his face opposite hers.

If the woman has a short vaginal canal, she might suffer from severe cervical bruising or other abrasions from deep thrusts. Also, the penis rubbing against the urethra can cause urinary tract infections.

9. The Lap Dance

The man sits on the chair and the woman sits on the man.

There are chances that the woman might fall off the man and bust her head open. This can actually happen. So, better be prepped up with some serious pole dancing techniques.

10. The Randy Raft

The Randy Raft

This one involves climbing onto a raft in shallow water, and lying on your stomach with your butt and legs dangling over the edge. The man then grabs the thighs and pushes in like a wheelbarrow, entering the woman. He can then pull her incredibly close for the deepest possible penetration.

If you can’t swim, this is probably a good position to avoid forever.

11. Oral Sex (69)

This sexual activity involves the stimulation of the genitalia of a person by another person using the mouth (including the lips, tongue or teeth) or throat.

Apparently, oral sex (also called 69) can result in pink eye. A study done in 2007, published in the International Journal of STD and AIDS, suggested that 9% of people studied were infected with chlamydial conjunctivitis after their partner ejaculated into their eye. Also there are several risks associated with oral sex. It can get riskier if you or your partner have mouth ulcers, gum infections or genital sores.

12. The Wheelbarrow

I don’t care how strong you are, you cannot hold yourself up for that long while also having sex. THAT IS TOO MUCH EFFORT. Guys, don’t drop your lady friend while you’re doing this move or you’ll never get to try it again.

13. Stairway to Heaven

This dangerous move is a variation on the Hot Seat with the lady sitting on top of the guy while he sits on one of the stairs of a staircase! (Sorry if you only have a single story home or your steps are outside.) Stairs are good for resting so you don’t over exert yourself and the hand rail offers extra support and lifting leverage.

Remember guys, if she’s on top, you have less control over the in and out motion, and you’re more likely to slip out of her.

14. The Speed Bump

The Speed Bump

The speed bump isn’t the most difficult of positions, but it’s THE position for the woman who wants to be crushed under the weight of her partner.

15. The Passion Propellor

The directions for this move literally say to SPIN AROUND 360 degrees while inside of a woman. If ladies don’t mind getting kicked in the face, this is a great move. Also, this is not how penises work.

16. The Bridge

This seems like a super easy position, wait, sorry, this position looks like if either of you do it wrong, the man will end up with a broken in half penis.

17. The Head Game

The Head Game

Who doesn’t love a good head rush during sex!? Not only does this position look like it could give you some major rug burn, but it could break your neck. No orgasm is worth a neck brace. Maybe?

18. The Carpet Burn

Doesn’t a position called “The Carpet Burn” sound fun? The danger that comes along with this move is all in the name, and maybe it sounds good, but can’t you have a nice time without ripping your knees to shreds?


Every penis has a different curvature and length and rigidity, and every female has different vaginal anatomy. Therefore, when may be a safe position in one couple might not be safe in another.

Even if a sexual position has been easy and fun for you or your partner in the past, it’s worth taking the time to make sure that position works with your combined anatomies before.
