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.

Marks, MD, MBA, and spokesman for the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, says intercourse back pain “is probably more common than physicians think and for patients to admit to.”
