Sex can be invigorating, life-affirming, pleasurable and a beautiful moment of synchronicity and vulnerability between two people. However, it can also be awkward, messy, humorous and haphazard because the human body is unpredictable and so it stands to reason that putting two naked people together would only increase the capacity for things to go wrong.
Perhaps you've made an awkward sound in the bedroom, bumped heads as you were trying to manoeuvre yourself into a new position, or attempted to role play with disastrous results?
The good news, is that if you’ve ever come a cropper during a romantic romp, you’re not alone. New research has revealed the most common accidents that happen during sex.
OnBuy’s Adult Department asked 2,544 respondents about the unfortunate events which have happened to them between the sheets and the results were both hilarious and painfully relatable.
If you've been feeling awkward or sheepish about a recent mishap in the bedroom (or anywhere else for that matter), here are the most common accidents people have during sex to prove you're not alone.
5 of the most common accidents people have during sex
Falling off your partner – or the furniture
The most common sex mishap has been revealed to be ‘falling off your partner or furniture’ with 75% of people saying this has happened to them before. So the best advice is to hold on for dear life, unless you want to take the action to the floor.
A family member walking in on you
Family time is important, but there’s a time and a place. And 71% of people have experienced the last thing you want – a family member has walked in on them having sex.
An ‘eye shot’
An ‘eye shot’ is pretty much what it sounds like – an unfortunately aimed ejaculation, which can be incredibly painful. But it is a really common sex mishap, with 68% of people having experienced an eye shot.
Falling in the shower
Getting clean while getting dirty is great multitasking, but it’s also a lot of fun. However, it can be treacherous. In fact, 51% of people have admitted to falling in the shower while having sex.
Slipping is not the only problem people can experience while doing bits in the shower. The hot temperature could also make you faint.
Being knocked unconscious
Having sex can feel like an otherworldly experience – especially if you get yourself knocked unconscious – which is exactly what has happened to 5% of unlucky respondents.
It’s not surprising when you consider that sex sometimes involves alcohol, and if you’re having a really good time it is easy to become unaware of the hazards around you.
