Pssst, Kid… Wanna See An MRI Of People Having Sex?

Pin it


We all know you were Googling “X-ray sex” in some sort of comic book fantasy slipup, but you ended up here instead. It’s okay– this is science and we’re all adults here. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Well, besides how weird getting freaky looks when seen through an MRI (starting at the 1:35 mark). YouTube explains:

Dr. Pek Van Andel, who won an Ig Nobel Prize for making the first MRI images of a couple’s sex organs while those organs were in use, also made a video of the phenomenon. Here, more or less, is the world premiere of that video.

If you didn’t think dicks looked weird or hilarious before, you probably do now. Thanks, medical advances.

(P.S. Photos of MRI sex have floated around the internet for years. This is the first time that we can remember seeing a video, although it may have been around awhile.)
