According to reports from narobinews, a man is nursing his manhood after he allegedly broke it during a passionate love making with his wife.
The 42 year old man from China was rushed to hospital and admitted in in agony with symptoms of ‘eggplant deformity’ with swelling, pain and dark purple bruising.
Mr Dai, from Guangxi’s Nanming city, had his private part snapped after hearing a cracking sound while having sex with his partner last week.
He was then rushed to a local hospital for emergency treatment before being transferred to the provincial Hospital at 4am in the morning.
Doctors found that Dai’s manhood was at an odd angle and was in a swollen shape that made it look like an eggplant.
Dai was diagnosed with a penile fracture after tearing a sponge-like erectile tissue called corpora cavernosa.
Blood flows into corpora cavernosa that runs along the penis and making it hard during an erection.
However, any vigorous intercourse may tear the tissue, meaning blood bursting inside the erectile manhood and causing painful swelling, according to National Health Services UK.
‘IT CAN BREAK’
“If the penis is violently twisted when erect, it can break. There are no bones in the penis, but the tubes that fill with blood during an erection can burst. Blood pours out of them inside the penis and causes a very painful swelling. Reported cases of penile fracture are rare, but it’s thought that some men are too embarrassed to report it to their doctor.”
“Damage during sex, where a partner is on top, is responsible for about one-third of all cases. The breakage usually occurs when a man’s penis slips out of his partner and is violently bent.”
Dai is now recovering in hospital.
Doctors from Guangxi Minzu Hospital said incidents such as these are common occurrences in men aged 20 to 40 years old, under vigorous or violent sexual intercourse.
They also warned that a fractured penis can lead to erectile dysfunction and a higher risk of complications if not treated immediately.
