A man was trying to pleasure himself with a fork when it got stuck inside his male organ.
The 70-year-old Australian man was left embarrassed after he was unable to remove the fork and was forced to go to the hospital to have it removed.
The man admitted that he had inserted the fork into his male organ in an attempt to pleasure himself.
Unfortunately, the attempt failed and the fork got stuck, leaving him in a lot of pain and bleeding. Despite this, it took the man 12 hours to muster up the courage to seek medical help.
At first, doctors did not know the cause of the man’s pain until they took an x-ray and discovered a fork inside his genitals.
The fork was removed by doctors at the Canberra Hospital in Australia, by using forceps and lubrication, while the patient was under general anesthesia.
According to an article, entitled ‘An unusual urethral foreign body’, it is very rare to find objects lodged in the lower urinary tract.
Doctors said that the practice of people inserting foreign objects into their urethra tends to occur during states of pathological masturbation, substance abuse and intoxication. In most cases, patients are so embarrassed that they try to retrieve the object by themselves, risking injury or infections to their genitals.
According to the report, the typical symptoms after insertion of a foreign object into the male urethra include abdominal pain, pain in the penis, swollen glans or shaft of the penis, inflammation of the urethra, dyspareunia (pain during intercourse), bloody urine, pyuria (pus in urine), increased urinary frequency, difficulty urinating and fever.
