Can the penis get stuck inside the vagina?
Hi there and thanks for getting in contact with us.
The question of a penis getting stuck inside a vagina has been around for a while. Who knows whether it's a real condition or an urban myth. The medical jury don't know, but there have been a few reported cases of this happening.
In reality it seems to be a very rare phenomenon. A woman's vaginal muscles may clamp down on a penis during sex, so the penis is then stuck inside the vagina. It's claimed that the guy can't withdraw his penis even after he has lost his erection.
I know this stuff happens in the movies etc. but in reality it seems to be a rarity! You might want to take a look at the link I have given you to an article about "penis captivus" written in a reputable medical journal. It's quite wordy but I think you'll get the gist of it, even just from the summary, if you really are interested in this!
If you are sexually active or thinking about having sex, it's important to protect yourself against unplanned pregnancy and STIs by using a condom every time you have sexual intercourse.
