We would love to tell you there is no such thing as having too much sex. Seriously—we’d be thrilled to be the bearer of that news! But sadly, we’d be lying. Medical professionals (and pure lovers of the act) have found there are a few risks of having too much sex, and here they are.
1. Rug burns
Apply too much pressure and create prolonged friction on the same area and you’ll wear that skin raw! Too much sex in certain positions will take those positions off the table for you for a while. At least until you’ve healed.
2. Bad knees
Your knees are sensitive. Some people get bad knees just by jogging a few times a week. Imagine what could happen if you are on your knees and another person is on you a few times a week (or day.) Bye-bye stilettos, hello orthotics.
3. Bruised elbows
Like a good propped-on-your-side position? Plenty of women report it’s a great way to help their partner access their g-spot. But doing that every night can leave your elbows feeling like you walked through a doorway while putting your hair in a pony tail and WHAM! Slammed your funny bone.
4. Cuts on your lips
Your vaginal lips, that is. If you shave down there, the skin needs a little time to heal before it experiences a ton of friction. Usually it really only needs a day before the tiny inevitable cuts that come with shaving your va-jay-jay close up. But if you don’t give it that day, the cuts will open up and you’ll feel a bad sting when you pee, and during sex.
