We went to Montreal’s Atwater Metro to see if the locals were aware of potential physical harm.
It’s a sound no intimate couple ever wants to hear: the crack that can accompany a fractured penis. And now a team of Brazilian researchers has demonstrated that the cowgirl (girl on top) position is the most likely to engender such unpleasantness, accounting for up to 50 percent of penile fractures.
“Our hypothesis is that when woman is on top she usually controls the movement with her entire body weight landing on the erect penis, not being able to interrupt it when the penis suffers a wrong way penetration,” explain the scientists. Doggy style (on all fours) proved the second riskiest position accounting for 29 percent of afflictions, while missionary (man on top) was considered the safest position.
