An Indian man was rushed to hospital
with a broken p!.nis after hearing a loud snap during vigorous s*.x. The
32-year-old said that he heard a snapping sound while having s*.x, then
felt a sharp pain in his manhood.
He was rushed to hospital in New Delhi
for tests, by which point his p!.nis had turned completely black.
Doctors carried out ultrasound tests of the broken p!.nis which was bent
at an unnatural angle.
New Delhi doctors from the All India
Institute of Medical Sciences call the case an eggplant deformity. The
man was found to have torn tissues along the right hand side of his
p!.nis, known as corpus cavernosum.
These two lengths of tissue on either
side form the majority of the pe.nis. When a man gets an ere.ction,
blood rushes to the tissue, which makes the p!.nis hard.
During an ere.ction, the pe.nis can
fracture if it is hit with blunt force. This can happen during vigorous
s*.x or mas.turbation.
This happened to the Indian man, whose
corpus cavernosa tore at the tip and bled, causing his p!.nis to swell
and turn black. After scans, doctors rushed him into emergency surgery.
The excess blood was drained from his
pe.nis before doctors mended the fracture. Penile fractures can cause
other problems in the future.
Those who have suffered fractures often have erectile dysfunction because blood cannot properly flow to the tissue.
This is because of the scar tissue that
will form as the p!.nis heals and there is also a possibility that there
could be nerve damage.
There have been 1,600 reported cases of a fractured p!.nis worldwide since 1924. That averages out at 16 incidents a year.
Researchers in Brazil have discovered
that the “woman on top” or “cowgirl” position has caused half of penile
fractures. In comparison, “do.ggy style” has caused 29 per cent, and
“missionary” is responsible for 21 per cent of fractures.
