A Chinese man inserted 15 sewing needles into his penis for sexual pleasure over a period of one year and ended up with a bad infection and blood in his urine.
According to reports, the 35-year-old unmarried man was admitted to The General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region in Shenyang, the capital of north-eastern China’s Liaoning Province, on June 20 after he complained of severe pain.
“The operation was about an hour and a half long. I am sweating and my hands are trembling when it’s over. This is not an easy one,” Dr Cao Zhiqiang, a urologist, was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
The doctor said an X-ray showed the needles lodged in the man’s urethra, causing him discomfort and bleeding while peeing. It is not uncommon for people to engage in urethral stimulation, inserting foreign objects from a rod to wires to pins.
“There are scholars explaining this scenario as one of the peculiar sex similar to sadomasochism and foot fetishes. Patients are looking for excitement through unusual ways,” Dr Cao explained.
He advised that people indulging in peculiar sex should practice caution as it could lead to serious medical complications.
