As much as we deny it, we've all been there. We've all suffered some or the other injury due to physical intimacy. It might be because of the surface you were on, or if your experimentation went wrong. Whether it was mind-blowing intercourse that left you walking funny the next morning or crappy experience 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 injuries suffered during intimacy. Every patient who comes in with this kind of 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. It might seem unfair because these are personal injuries.
The National Electronic Injury Surveillance System or NEISS is busy collecting data from over 450 hospitals regarding their cases of injuries suffered via intercourse.
They've been analyzing the data and keeping records. Are you ready to know the details about the records and the analysis? Do you feel like maybe this was a personal detail and they kind of stole that from you? Maybe after reading ahead, you might understand why they did what they did.
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 intercourse 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, intercourse could be dangerous if practiced at different locations as well.
In the month of July, most cases of intimate 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.
