Sex injuries are rare, but if they ever do happen, it can hurt like a bitch – so how do you avoid them?

More often than not, injuries occur because of where, not how, you’re having sex. But that being said, there are a few positions that are more likely than others to result in injury.

Researchers in Brazil studied patients with penis fractures to see what they’d been up to in bed before they’d heard the dreaded cracking sound.

One position was revealed as the most dangerous, with three others following close by as other potentially-harmful moves, the Daily Star reports.

From broken penises to strained backs, here are four you may want to avoid – or at least try with caution.

Girl On Top

A recent study found that the woman-on-top position is the most dangerous sexual maneuver you can do. Although it’s one of the best to make a woman orgasm, it was deemed responsible for half of all penile fractures according to researchers in Brazil.

Scientists believe that’s because when a woman is in control with her entire body weight landing on a guy’s manhood, she’s unable to interrupt it when it suffers a ‘wrong way penetration’. Instead, you may want to have her shift her weight onto your chest with her hands instead.

Think of it as a standing missionary. Anything acrobatic like this is a lot more likely to lead to back pain or strains for the guy, which – if you do it often and vigorous enough – can cause long-term back problems.

Let’s not forget you run the risk of falling over, so you may want to rest on something just in case.

The Cowgirl And Lean Back

This is basically what it says on the tin – this position is like the cowgirl, but instead of the woman leaning forward, she’s leaning way back.

But like an elbow or knee, an erect penis can be ‘hyperextended’ if you put too much or too frequent downward pressure on it, according to a study from the University of California, San Francisco.

Over time, this hyperextension can lead to Peyronie’s disease – a buildup of plaques that causes your manhood to bend while erect, and that can make sex impossible, Men’s Health reports.

Doggy

Not one you’d expect to see on the list, but while Ann Summers recently found Doggy Style is the UK’s favourite sex position, research in Brazil found that 29 per cent of men’s penis fractures were caused by this move.

Despite this, a poll of adults found that one in four people favour this sex position.

If you’re partial to any of these positions, proceed with caution.
