The Most Common Injury: Carpet Burn
The friction of scouring against an unpleasant surface — say a mat or the floor — can leave scratches and burns on your knees, back, butt and legs.
The name is not an accident: these injuries can feel like first-degree burns.
Friction burns can be exceptionally painful.
Luckily, most aren’t that serious, and they’ll mend all alone in a couple of days.
To avoid one of these, put a duvet or blanket down as a buffer surface, that is if you intend to get it going on the carpet or the floor.
Antibiotic ointments and creams help prevent infections.
Apply an antibacterial ointment like Neosporin to your burn and cover with glad wrap or a sterile, non-fluffy dressing or cloth.

Pain In The butt, It’s Stuck
In the event that something is going into your butt, it should be designed explicitly to go into the butt.
The vagina has an end zone (the cervix), but the butt-centric channel doesn’t.
The anal canal continues going to the rectum, colon, and afterward as far as possible up to the digestive system.
The toy needs a wide base to hold it back from voyaging higher up into the body than the butt.
Most of the time, what’s stuck isn’t a sex toy by any ‘stretch’ of the imagination: it’s commonly a household item that isn’t intended for butt-centric use.
Think phallic vegetables, electric toothbrushes and the like. So save yourself being the butt of the joke and a trip to the emergency room to have it removed.
If you find your butterfingers getting something stuck up there, don’t mess around. Seek medical attention faster than the babysitter’s boyfriend when the car pulls up.
DON’T leave it, as it can cause internal damage.
