It's safe to say this couple will stay indoors from now on

Are centipedes really prudish?

It sure seemed that way to one couple after an arthropod turned a romp in the Hawaiian jungle into a nightmare when he crawled in between a couple having sex and injected venom around a young woman’s “lady parts.”

Luckily for us, the woman and her partner lived to tell the tale for TLC’s Sex Sent Me to the ER.

“I’m the one who got her naked and now this poor girl has a centipede bite on her vagina,” a man identified as Dylan said as he hugged his partner, Kelly.

“I could just see it, my tombstone saying ‘Bit By a Centipede Having Sex in the Woods,’ ” Kelly said.

The clip features a reenactment of their ill-fated rendezvous, and watch it all to see the twist that occurs after the couple goes to the ER. (Spoiler alert: It turns out Kelly wasn’t the only one to have her private parts ravaged by the centipede – poor Dylan was bitten as well.)

“It felt like someone was holding a lighter underneath my testicle and penis,” he said somewhat matter-of-factly to the camera.

Inside an exam room during the reenactment, panic strikes when the centipede is discovered still crawling on Kelly, but a further crisis is averted.

As the clip ends, a reassuring-looking doctor appears onscreen and explains that while centipede venom is quite painful, it is rarely fatal.

Even so, it’s safe to assume Dylan and Kelly now stick to the indoors.

Sex Sent Me To The ER airs Saturday at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
