It’s a well known observation having sexual intercourse can make you feel better emotionally, it keeps you healthy, and it’s fun. But what about if you’re having too much sex? Spending too much time in bone town can take you to chafing city, and might even put you on the slow train to chronic back pain county. Alas, too much of a good thing even applies here, which might be the best thing ever. Most of you don’t have to worry about most of the things that happen to your body when you have too much intercourse, but if you're hitting the sheets on a daily basis, you should read up on these sexaholic problems to make sure you’re staying healthy.

The biology of intercourse gets our chemicals grooving in a way that puts us at peak human. Our bodies suddenly decide we should be running marathons, our neurons are stoked to be alive, and who can forget the climax? But the physical effects of too much "physical activity" can take a violent toll on our bodies; leaving us broken pieces of meat who can’t stop bleeding (nasty! but seriously...). To be fair, there are a couple of good things that come along with having non-stop intercourse. Continue, brave readers, for a whiff of... that's the wrong phrase to use here. An penetrating dive into educational trip down Oversexed Lane.

Isn't ejaculating great? Well, it might not be if you're doing it constantly. According to Jonathan D. Schiff, MD, assistant clinical professor of urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, you're in for a world of hurt if you keep it up. (No pun intended.)

He says: “When people ejaculate eight to ten times over the weekend from Friday to Sunday, it’s going to cause some pain and discomfort when you go to that extreme amount." Stop busting those nuts, fellas.

Mary Jane Minkin, MD, clinical professor at the Yale School of Medicine, explains: "The urethra—the tube that goes from outside up into the bladder—is literally right next to the vagina." So, when you're doing it, bacteria from the vagina can very easily be rubbed into the urethra and travel up to the bladder, causing an infection. If you're doing it a lot in a short span, you're more likely to get a UTI than someone who only travels bimonthly to bone town. Some of the easiest ways to avoid getting a UTI are drinking plenty of fluids and going to the bathroom right after the deed is done.

If you're doing it a lot, say two times a day for a month, you're going rub your genitals raw unless you use some kind of lubricant. If there's one problem with the human body, it doesn't self lubricate (other than the honey pot, that is), and because of that, you can develop skin sores, or possibly even calluses, on your genitalia. If you start to notice tender areas on your genitals, you might just need to take a break and invest in some lotion.

Doing the deed on the reg is great, but if you're constantly getting down with people, you're going to become used to the sensations, and then, it will feel as good as the first time. It's like if your favorite food is pizza and you eat it every day. If you do that, there's a chance you'll lose your taste for pizza. Or beaver. Or at least your nonstop excitement for it. How do you make sure this doesn't happen to you? Easy: scale back, and maybe even work out a set schedule for your bang sessions.
