5 Funny Sex Injuries

A Chinese woman who went deaf from kissing and other funny sex injuries.


Kissing is supposed to be safe: You're not going to get an STI. You're not giving up your lady-flower. Unless you're kissing a vampire, the worst that's gonna happen is the awkward I-have-to-breathe-but-I-don't-wanna-pull-away feeling... right? Wrong. Apparently kissing can make you go deaf.

That's right: a smooch can kill your hearing, and one Chinese woman recently suffered just this fate. Luckily she'll be able to hear again in two months, but for now, her boyfriend's apologies will fall on dead ears.


According to the woman's doctor, "the kiss reduced the pressure in the mouth, pulled the eardrum out and caused the breakdown of the ear." That's one passionate smacker! Physicians in China have warned people to "proceed with caution."

All this got us wondering: what other injuries do people suffer in the name of love? Apparently a lot! Aside from the normal bruises and scrapes (and, of course, STIs), watch out that you don't…
