As much as we deny it, we've all been there. We've all suffered some or the other injury due to sex. Whether it was mind-blowing sex that left you walking funny the next morning or crappy sex that would make you not want to see that guy's face ever again.
But as it surprisingly turns out, hospitals are reportedly keeping a record of sex injuries. Every patient who comes in with a sex injury goes in the records and there are over 450 hospitals under the surveillance.
You may not like the fact, but this is what's happening.
The National Electronic Injury Surveillance System or NEISS is busy collecting data from over 450 hospitals regarding their cases of sex injuries.
They've been analyzing the data and keeping records. Are you ready to know the details about the records and the analysis?
Looking at this pie chart, you will realize that injuries caused by foreign objects are the most common. Along with that, there are burn injuries, puncture wounds, and nerve damage as well.
The most dominant part of the 'foreign body' spectrum points towards internal massaging devices such as vibrators.
Among other foreign body objects, there were reports of injuries caused by screwdriver handles, vegetables like carrot or cucumbers, pool balls, and also pieces of jewelry.
Couples who prefer to have sex in the bathroom suffered serious injuries due to slippery floors and bathtubs. Another area where couples reported to have suffered injuries would be on the stairs. As it turns out, sex could be dangerous if practiced at different locations as well.
In the month of July, most cases of sex injuries were highlighted.
People responsible for tracking down records at the NEISS aren't a bunch of perverts. They keep track of overall injuries reported in hospitals so that they can analyze them and come up with solutions for modification and prevention of such injuries.
