Ida Sabelis and her boyfriend Jupp had sexual intercourse in an MRI machine in 1991 in the name of science.

Although their lovemaking happened more than 30 years ago, it recently gained attention again after the pictures were published on the Internet, and many were shocked by the “madness” to which they went for the sake of science.

Ida and Jupp had sex in an MRI machine after their friend, Dutch scientist Menko Victor “Peck” van Andel, set out to find out what happens inside our body when we have sex. ]

The resulting images were the first of their kind and became the focus of a popular article in the British Medical Journal. in 1999, when a more detailed study was done, which is still read by thousands of people every month.

Now, interest in this story has risen again as it went viral on TikTok, where it was retold based on the article Vice 2019.

But MRI showed that “the penis has “boomerang” shape, that is, it curves inward according to the shape of a woman's body, without causing pain to a man during an erection.

This discovery was of great importance and led to an official study conducted between 1991 and 1999 year by Ida and Peck, the results of which were published in the BMJ magazine.

All subsequent experiments were done in the missionary position, using volunteers over 18 who could stop at any moment.

No one did this, but Ida noted that no one but her and Japp could pass test without using Viagra.

“It got warm in the machine and we really enjoyed each other in the usual way,” she told Vice.

“When I saw the pictures , I just thought, “Oh, that's how we fit together.”
