That’s not suppose to go in there!
Doctors in Canberra have removed a 10-centimetre fork from the penis of a 70-year-old man who inserted it into his uretha in an attempt to achieve sexual gratification.
According to the report the man presented at Canberra Hospital emergency department with a bleeding sexual organ.
The Canberra Times says he told doctors he had inserted the piece of cutlery into his urethra almost 12 hours earlier in an attempt to achieve sexual gratification, but the fork – perhaps unsurprisingly – became stuck.
The case appears in the International Journal of Surgery Case Report published last month and is entitled “An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body”.
“Autoerotic stimulation with the aid of self-inserted urethral foreign bodies has been existent since time immemorial and have presented an unusual but known presentation to urologists.”
When the man arrived at the hospital the doctors were able to feel the fork from the outside but had to get an x-ray in order to actually see it. The doctors got the fork removed from the man’s penis using forceps and “copious lubrication” while the man was under general anesthetic. So at least the fork is out and he is recovering.
Three doctors wrote about this case for the International Journal of Surgery Case Report last month due to the unusual nature of the case. It’s perhaps not all that common of an occurrence since, according to the report, items stuck in people’s sexual organs ranged from toothbrushes, vegetables, keys, wire and even snakes.
The doctors encourage people to seek medical help when items get stuck in one’s sexual organs as attempts to pry them out by one self usually just leads to further injuries. Or how about thinking twice about doing it in the first place.
