As odd as it would might sound, recently a team of ER doctors from the Mater University Hospital in Dublin, managed to save a male from penile strangulation after asking a couple of firefighters to assist them in a most unusual surgical procedure. According to the hospital’s spokesperson, the surgeons managed to cut off a man’s penile ring using an angle grinder. Both patients survived the procedure and are currently recovering at the Dublin hospital.
We often wonder about what are willing to do to spice up our sex lives? Less stress and some time away from the big city are great starters, but not enough for some people. It’s not considered unhealthy for couples to try out sex toys in order to spice up things. Well, as it happens, some sex toys can be dangerous to use, especially when you forget to read the label.
A man from Dublin found out that taking your time to figure out how a sex toy works might save you a trip to the local hospital, and, of course, tons of embarrassment. So, a man from went on a trip to the local sex store in order to buy something that might please his girlfriend. He ended up purchasing a penis ring, a sexual contraption which is thought to improve sexual performance. The penile ring was robust, as it was made from titanium.
Several hours after putting the ring on, the man observed that he could no longer take off the sex toy. Alarmed by the fact that his genitalia started to swell, the man decided to swallow his pride and to try and get some medical assistance.
So, he jumped into his vehicle and drove straight to the Mater University Hospital. After consulting him, the ER doctors tried to pull out the ring, as the man’s genitalia began to exhibit the symptoms associated with penile strangulation. Realizing that pulling out the ring was challenging, the ER doctors had no other choice but to ask for the help of the local fire brigade.
After sedating the man, his physicians and a couple of firefighters used an angle grinder in order to cut the titanium penis ring. The ‘surgery’ took about 20 minutes, but it was deemed a success. Not only were the doctors able to remove the penile ring, but they’ve also saved the man’s organ. The patient is expected to make a quick and complete recovery.
