Throwing out your back is a painful, terrible experience.

But for Shaun (a man who goes by michiganjfrog on reddit), there is something of a silver lining in his back injury: from now until April 23, he can only have sex while lying on his back and exerting minimal effort.

His doctor handed down this order after Shaun hurt his back at work and then again in his bedroom, according to UPROXX.

He even wrote a work and sex excuse for Shaun, so his boss and his wife would believe him.

The note reads: “He WILL BE UNFIT TO CONTINUE his USUAL OCCUPATION or SEXUAL services. Shaun can only take part in sexual activity flat on his back with minimal effort on his part.”

So Shaun has a few months of enjoying the “cowgirl” position, it seems. Let’s hope he doesn’t break his dick.
