Doctor issues warning over the world's most dangerous sex position

Doctor issues warning over the world's most dangerous sex position

He took to TikTok to share the PSA

If you were looking to spice up your love life in 2024, then you may want to tread extra lightly around a certain bedroom position.

Dubbed the 'world's most dangerous sex position', one doctor has issued an urgent warning when it comes to getting it on in the bedroom.

UK-based surgeon, Dr Karan Raj, who goes by the handle @dr.karanr online, took to TikTok to share with his 5.2 million followers exactly which position could result in a pretty gnarly injury if you aren't careful. Have a look:

The doctor began by saying it was the 'most dangerous' sex position as determined by science as it is the cause of a staggering '50 per cent' of penile fractures.


Dr Raj has warned people over the 'world's most dangerous sex position'.

Dr Raj revealed that the culprit for such injuries was the 'reverse cowgirl position'.

Incase you're unfamiliar with the term, the reverse cowgirl position is when one partner receiving penetration sits on top of the other facing away from them.

The person on top is able to control the pace, rhythm, and depth of penetration while the person underneath can assist with support and thrusting.

There's also a handful of ways to perform the position - including the person on top leaning on their knees, leaning back and supporting their weight with their feet or leaning forward on their hands.

So - how do you avoid one of these dreaded penile fractures?

Despite being boneless, Dr Raj warns that penises very much so still tear.

"A penile fracture is actually a tear to the tunica albuginea," he continued. "This is actually a rubbery sheet of tissue that allows the penis to enlarge in width and length during erection."

The penis can be 'crushed' by the pubic bone if it 'slips out' during reverse cowgirl.

He further explains: "If there's any erratic thrusting of the movements of the two parties are not in sync, it could lead to the male Jabberwocky slipping out and being crushed by the female pubic bone despite."

The doc concluded his PSA: "You've been warned - over enthusiastic sex could leave your penis looking like an aubergine."


And people clearly couldn't wait to share their thoughts on the TikTok, with one user writing: "Ruined my fav position!"

"I wish I never saw this," penned a second.

A third chimed in: "Never doing this!"

"Owww am I the only that feels it when he is explaining it?" asked a fourth, while a fifth called the whole ordeal 'terrifying'.

A final TikTok user added: "A new dimension to my day."

That's for sure.
