A guy has needed emergency surgery after shoving a padlock down his penis.
Yes, you read that right, a 31-year-old man has indeed pushed a small padlock so far down his urethra that it ended up in his bladder.
And yes, I too have so many questions I’m not sure I want to know the answers.
The padlock became wedged in the bladder of the unnamed man who was ‘playing’ with his private parts in an attempt to pleasure himself. I’m sure there are better ways of doing that, fella!
Once he realised his mistake, he rushed to the hospital and attended a clinic in Fuzhou city, the capital city of the Fujian province in eastern China.
Even more embarrassingly, his family accompanied him for the trip.
An amazing X-ray, pictured below, shows the padlock lodged in his bladder.
Doctors removed the padlock by cutting a small hole into his bladder to release the item.
It is currently unknown whether the man will suffer from lasting damage as a result and what condition he is in now.
I think it is safe to say though that he won’t be going near padlocks for the rest of his life.
Somehow, this isn’t the first time something has been removed from someone’s body after some creative approaches to achieving sexual gratification.
Earlier this year, in China again, an anonymous 35-year-old had 15 rusty needles taken out of his penis at the General Hospital of the Shenyang Military Region.
The patient was admitted with ‘pain in his private parts’ after inserting the 10cm-long needles.
Dr. Cao Zhiqiang, who took part in the operation, said:
Because of the patient’s… hobby, he inserted 15 needles from the tip of his penis into his urethra over the course of a year.
As a result, he suffered from haematuria – blood in the urine – infections and it hurt whenever he urinated.
Had we waited longer, the needles might have moved further up into his bladder, which would have been very troublesome.
The surgery was successful and the man is thought not to have suffered any lasting complications.
I am also hopeful he’s put an end to his favourite ‘hobby’ and is now going to stick to standard masturbational procedures.
Not only are men sticking things into their penises, well they are also shoving their private parts into things such as gym weights.
An unnamed fitness fanatic was rushed to hospital after getting his penis stuck in the hole of a gym weight.
Both firefighters and doctors using specialist equipment such as a saw and a grinder worked to remove the 2.5kg weight from the delicate area.
It is not known how exactly the man got his penis stuck, but I could make a good guess.
Calling it a ‘curious training accident’, a spokesman from the fire brigade said:
How delicate some of our firefighters can be was shown when we [were] called in support of the hospital.
One person had a very sensitive body part wedged in the hole of a 2.5kg dumbbell disc.
The dumbbell weight could be removed after three hours with the help of a grinder, a vibration saw and a hydraulic rescue device.
