The Most Dangerous Sex Position For a Successful Older Man

Dangerous Sex PositionSome­times we come across stud­ies here at that are just too good not to share. This is def­i­nitely one of them—and it’s one that you might want to con­sider the next time you and your older man take your May-December romance to the bedroom.

A group of aca­d­e­mic researchers exam­ined cases of “penile frac­tures” among men over the age of 30 in order to deter­mine what caused them. Accord­ing to the find­ings from the study, which were pub­lished in the jour­nal Advances in Urol­ogy, the riski­est sex posi­tion, for men at least, was “woman on top”—think cow­girl. The sci­en­tists hypoth­e­sized that it’s because when you’re on top, you’re in con­trol with all of your body weight on top of him, and you’re there­fore not able to stop some­thing from going wrong. As the study puts it, the woman is unable to “inter­rupt it when the penis suf­fers a wrong way penetration.”

Even though the pain and dam­age is next to noth­ing for the woman, it’s pretty exten­sive for the man. This par­tic­u­lar sex position—one you may now want to think twice about try­ing in your own May-December romance—was respon­si­ble for half of the sex-related penile frac­ture cases involved in the study.

So, what’s the safest sex posi­tion then? If this study is any indi­ca­tion, man-on-top or “mis­sion­ary,” is the safest way to go, because he’s bet­ter able to con­trol the sit­u­a­tion if he feels that some­thing isn’t right.

Although penile frac­tures are rel­a­tively rare, it’s impor­tant that you seek imme­di­ate med­ical atten­tion if you and your older man do ever find your­self in such a predica­ment. The researchers behind this study noted that despite hear­ing a crack and feel­ing excru­ci­at­ing pain, many of the men waited as much as six hours to go to the hos­pi­tal. As embar­rass­ing as it might be for you and your May-December romance, it’s not some­thing that will heal itself—the faster you han­dle the sit­u­a­tion, the faster you can get back to enjoy­ing your sex life.

About Isabella

I was never patriotic, so when Independence Day came, the last thing on my mind was to go out and celebrate. I was bored and I was lonely, and though they weren’t my normal crowd, thesse girls were friends and family members who I grew up with. But Diana had her man, Marsha had hers, and my cousin Lisa had her own. I was the only one who was single and my taste was just too high; the kind of men they dated did not appeal to me. I wanted the executive, the entrepreneur. I was 22 and unhappy about my life. I yearned to be in a relationship; I felt I had so much to give a man, and yet I was single. My friends and I waited for cab and I was still second-guessing whether or not I really wanted to go out. While we were waiting, an older looking gentleman driving a blue pick-up truck drove up to us. As he slowed, he said, “Don’t move. I’m coming right back!” He drove off, leaving a trail of his cologne, as he sped away to drop off the construction workers sitting in the back of the truck. Literally moments later, he came back, stopped in front of us, asked us where we were going, and told us to get in. It turns out his name was Keith. After Keith dropped us off, I realized I didn’t want to stay and asked him to take me back to where he picked us up from. He turned, looked at me, and said, “You were the reason why I picked you all up. I wanted to get to know you. So, I’m happy you decided to leave with me.”
