Yes, You Can Break A Penis
You've probably never heard of a penile fracture, but it can happen
if the erect organ gets whacked too hard on purpose or by accident.
While the injury is rare in this country, there's about one case a week
in the province of Kermanshah in Iran and one clinic reports treating 172
penile fractures over the past decade, according to a report in the Journal
of Urology (August 2000).
It turns out there's a cultural reason for the high number of penile
fractures that often results in swelling, discoloration and deformity as
well as bleeding and pain. A lot of men in Iran, it seems, will snap or
click an unwanted erect penis to make it go down. In other word, there's
a self-inflicted abnormal, downward bending of the penis that occurs.
Some penis injuries have also been blamed on erratic movements during
sexual intercourse, as well as from falling down with an erection. A penis
is most vulnerable when it is erect and injuries can also be caused by
rolling over during sleep or, in one weird case, where a brick fell on
The good news is most cases of penile fracture are successfully treated
and it's not an injury most of us have to worry about.
