Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
I follow a lady on Instagram called babiesafter35 and I am absolutely traumatised by this phenomenon she has described.

Basically if you go down a water slide there's a chance that the force of the water can enter your vagina and cause severe damage to internal organs, haemorrhage or even death! I am sure it's incredibly rare but I had never heard of this before. Anyone else?

Can happen to women of all ages including young girls.

Never going on a flume again 😱

Never heard of this - which shows how rare it must be. Think how many women go on water rides all over the world, all the time ….

Oh dear. Time to slide off, I think.

✍️ avoid water slides and a big penis.

Unlikely on a water slide. I've heard of it happening when water skiing.

Not sure but having sex in water apparantly can do a similar thing!

Always cross your legs on a water slide.

I didn’t know this I did recently hear of someone falling off a jetski and a jet of bibles went up her and ripped her intestines

I’ve just googled it and there have indeed been some horrific injuries

I've never heard this but did learn to my embarrassment not to wear a bikini on a water slide!!

HopeYourHighHorseBucks Thu 22-Jul-21 23:17:27

I grew up with a shower hose. Il be fine thank you.


(The injuries do sound awful)

Not a myth,it happened to me.luckily not too severe but once I got to the pool I had the wind knocked out of me so went to toilets for some privacy and found out I'd been cut down there and had some soreness and bleeding for a few days.

One of the reasons they made us wear shorts for waterskiing...

Seafog Thu 22-Jul-21 23:18:03

I'm sure you don't use cars either, people are killed in those every day, I hearshock

DorotheaDiamond Thu 22-Jul-21 23:19:23

I’ve heard this before…ditto with waterskiing so they insist on you wearing shorts! Personally given how far up the gusset of a swimming costume gets pushed on a slide I would always wear swim shorts anyway!!!

Apparently a water park in Germany has made its fastest slide men only due to the number of internal injuries to women and girls.
