After the news broke that MMA Fighter Ray Elbe’s penis broke (I missed that news seeing as how I’d never heard of Ray before), he felt called to make a video about the incident. He says he wanted to come forward to talk about his traumatic penile fracture so that people could understand the “significance of the emergency” of having a broken dick. (Oh, I think we understand. Even those of us who don’t have them.YIKES.)
After Googling it, Ray discovered that lots of other men break their penis bones and some are too embarrassed to seek help. He doesn’t want anyone to be alone in this nightmare. Now that I know who he is and all the gory, bloody details of his sex injury and have seen him pour his pee from a catheter into a pitcher, I feel much more informed about penis injuries. In Ray’s words, “Keeping it safe during sex isn’t just about wearing a condom.” Noted, Ray. I will take great care next time I “come out the top and down” on a penis. His words, not mine. [Dlisted]

Something no one tells you about sex? A good romp in the sack can be dangerous. No, I’m not talking about potentially deadly sexually transmitted diseases and infections, like HIV. (Although those are dangerous too, obviously.) I’m talking about the rug burn, pulled hair, and the overzealous nipple bite (ow!) that every woman needs to watch out for. And no, a hickey doesn’t count as an “injury.” Keep reading »

A new, controversial report claims the increase in carpal tunnel syndrome cases in Britain is the result of too much sex. Repetitive movements and extending full body weight to the wrists during lovemaking seems to be related to the most common wrist ailment in the U.K., which affects one person in 20. The symptoms include numbness and pain from trapped nerves. Although the exact cause of the syndrome isn’t exactly known, doctors often attribute it to keyboard or mouse use and prolonged use of vibrating hand tools (no, not those vibrating hand tools). But, according to this new research, the increases in carpal tunnel sufferers coincided with the launch of Viagra and other erectile dysfunction treatments in the late ’90s. Of course, many people also started using computers continuously throughout the day around this time also. But one researcher maintains that sex is the leading cause of the syndrome because it’s the only widespread activity that requires both hands at the same time. So it sounds like this is the perfect excuse to switch positions and put old standbys like missionary and doggy style to rest for a bit. [The Sun] Keep reading »
