5 Reasons Sex Hurts (Penis Edition)

5 Reasons Sex Hurts (Penis Edition)


Recently I talked about 5 reasons sex hurts
vaginas sometimes to which some commenters were like, ‘But what about the penises?’
It’s true. Sex can hurt penises too. Statistically the most common reason for people
with penises to have painful sex, which is a bit of a tongue twister, is something called
Peryronie’s Disease. It’s a build-up of scar tissue and plaque with leads to a curvature
of the penis which then leads to painful intercourse. If your penis looks more like this than this,
you might want to go see your urologist. Next up for uncircumcised penis-havers phimosis
and paraphimosis can lead to painful intercourse. In the case of phimosis when the penis becomes
erect, the foreskin won’t fully retract. In the case of paraphimosis when that erect
penis begins to detumesce the foreskin won’t fully re-cover the old glans. If you’re ever heard one of those jokes
about a guy popping some Viagra and then having an erection that just won’t go away already.
Ahhhhh. The punch line is priapism. Not so funny sounding now is it. These painful erections
that will not go away and usually require medical treatment might in fact be caused
by Viagra or other medications but it might also be linked to blood disorders or genital
injury. Either way that is an erection that you probably don’t want. In the same way they can cause painful sex
for people with vaginas, skin disorders can also lead to painful sex for people with penises.
Skin conditions including psoriasis, balanitis and dermatitis can all irritate the skin particularly
on the head of the penis leading then to painful sex. Finally, bedroom moves gone horribly wrong
can lead to probably the most painful sex of your life because oh my god you just fractured
your penis. You know you fractured your penis when you hear a popping sound followed then
by discoloration and swelling of the penis. Statistically they’re quite rare but they
do happen and in fact in one study that I was looking at one guy fractured his penis
simply because his pants were too tight. If you do fracture your penis though it’s important
that you go to the hospital as soon as possible because if left untreated a fractured penis
can lead to erectile dysfunction which is another video for another time. P-p-p-penises, penises, penises, penises,
penises.
