Some sexual escapades it seems are for the ever daring. Case in point one 70 year old Australian man, who recently had a stainless steel kitchen fork removed from inside his penis.
According to emergency physicians the man had attempted to insert a piece of silver ware in his urethra in an attempt to pleasure himself.
Unfortunately the good shit backfired and the fork ended up getting stuck (you reckon?).
Despite the embarrassing nature of the incident it is said that it took the 70 year old man 12 hours to pluck up the courage to seek medical courage.
Goes on to tell the The International Journal of Surgery, the fork was so firmly lodged inside the man’s body that attending doctors could not initially see the cause of discomfort.
Nevertheless once the good stuff was located ‘multiple retrieval methods were contemplated with success achieved via forceps traction and copious lubrication.’
The procedure was successful and the elderly man was sent home with no long-term damage.
Doctors Krishanth Naidu, Maurice Mulcahy and Amanda Chung said they chose to publish the unusual case ‘to create discussion among the medical fraternity given the great management challenge faced by the oddity and infrequency with which a fork is encountered in the penile urethra.’
Interestingly the doctors went on to tell that the motives for inserting objects into such a sensitive region were difficult to comprehend.
Researching doctors have gone on to tell that the practice of inserting the good stuff into one’s urethra tends to occur ‘during states of pathological masturbation, substance abuse and intoxication.’
Not that you would never have guessed that either…
