A man who used a plastic bottle as a sex toy and got his penis stuck in it for four days has had to have it amputated. In lieu of a woman, the inventive man thought the drinks container would be the next best thing .
But the embarrassed 50-year-old left it four days before seeking medical help. This caused it to suffer necrosis – a type of injury which causes cells to die.By the time he reached the hospital – with the bottle still attached – the penis had turned black and had started to decay.
Medics had no choice to remove the organ. Doctor Dennis Chirinos, the urologist who carried out the surgery, said the patient’s urethra had to be repositioned so he is still able to urinate – but he will never be able to have sex again.
He said: “It’s a strange case, it’s happened before, bit it’s still strange.
“We had a 50-year-old patient, that, because he didn’t have a girlfriend or a wife, wanted to relieve his sexual frustration.
“So he put his penis in a bottle and this caused the death and necrosis of the penis.
“When he arrived four days later we had to amputate the penis completely because it was completely dead.
“When you put your penis into a bottle it causes a constriction in the blood vessels of the penis and within four hours you can lose the penis.
“This is an embarrassing emergency. The situation with this patient it that he didn’t get the medical attention in time and this caused the penis to begin to decay and die completely.
