Doctors were shocked to discover a seven-inch sex toy stuck in a man’s bladder after he came to the hospital and complained that he was peeing blood. It later emerged that he had inserted the toy into his urethra as part of a sex act and when it had gotten stuck and wouldn’t budge he refused to visit the doctor for a full two days. When he did finally give in and visit the doctor he explained that it had gotten stuck as part of “urethral play”.
The sex toy, which was a thing plastic rod, measured 20cm (7.87 in) long and 1cm (0.39 inches) wide. The patient explained that he had been pleasuring himself when he had accidentally inserted the rod into his bladder. A cystoscopy—a routine procedure where doctors insert a small endoscopic camera into the mans’ bladder—revealed that the toy had already caused infection and swelling. Thankfully it was easily removed using the endoscopic tools available.
The doctor responsible for treating the anonymous man made a public statement reminding people to properly lubricate and sanitise their sex toys. The same hospital also revealed they have previously treated men with ballpoint pens and USB charging cables inside their penises.
While it is not uncommon to hear about people getting strange objects stuck inside their anuses, with golf balls and light bulbs being the typical culprits, it is increasingly common for people to turn up to the doctors with all sorts of objects poking out of their pokers.
One doctor told the media about how a teenage boy complained about difficulties urinating only for a routine examination to reveal a pair of Apple earphones sticking out of his urethra. The boy claimed it was an accident (you know how those earphones tangle whenever you put them in your pocket? Well he claimed something similar happened but it involved his penis. Yeah… not a very good excuse) but we all know differently.
Some other fantastic examples include a fork, a cotton swab, a toothpick, and perhaps most amazingly, a live lizard, and in another case a live eel.
The practice of inserting an object down your urethra for pleasure is commonly known as “sounding”. Health professionals preach caution with regards to the practice, and recommend you are careful regarding hygiene and are careful not to uh… “sound” too deep.
