hey
sorry if this falls under 'technique' but i didn't think it did...anyway.
when 'on top' are there any positions/angles the girl should avoid because of causing pain to the guy's penis?
i was considering this a while ago and thought i'd ask...especially cuz i remember reading a -true- [in reputable national newspaper doctor's column] of a man who's penis -broke- [or something] because his partner leaned too sharply or similar. OUCH! i don't want that to happen or to cause any unnecessary pain to my partner!
anyone have any experience/knowledge/views?!

thanks

THe nice thing about pain is that we know when we're experiencing it. If your ppartner knows to say somethinng if and when he or she ever feels pain or discomfort during sex, you basically rule out sex-related injuries.

It really is that simple. One cannot talk about angles for everyone, because every penis is different, and vaginal canals differ as well.

I'd sure be interested in seeing that article if you could track it down.

I heard about the penis breaking thing. I don't know if it was true, as I don't remember where I heard it. I think it was that if you abruptly bend an erect penis straight down, something inside can snap. Forgetting anatomy at the moment, but I think it's the spongy things that fill with blood during erection.

*cringes*

well, there are ligaments at the base holding it up. the penis itself has the corpus cavernosa and corpus spongiosum (poet's reference to "spongy things")

god, that sounds painful!!!

Keep in mind though, those things are EXTREMELY uncommon.

...oww? Dang, that sounds painful!!! That seems kind of... far-fetched. I wonder how common that is. I think I'll go check the article. I would hate to be the poor lad who's penis gets snapped in half, though
