Hypothetical Space: If I were in space w/o a suit, would bernoullis effect take place?

    Would the pressure on my skin, try to explode out, just like a hurricane and a roof, in which the high velocity over the roof causes low pressure ontop of the roof and high pressure beneath the roof?

    You might have an issue with your lungs depending on how you came to be in space without a space suit, but that aside, since your body is mostly incompressible water, it would not explode.
