Just file this one under “it’s all fun and games until someone breaks his penis”:
A penile facture, or “broken penis,” is an injury that occurs to the erect penis. There are no bones in the penis; the “fracture” refers to tearing or laceration of a fibrous membrane called the tunica albuginea, which surrounds the spongy tissue in the center of the penis.
A “fracture” is followed by hemorrhaging, swelling and loss of erection. While previous research has focused on the physiological mechanism of the facture, and how to surgically treat it, no study has looked at exactly what men were doing when they broke their penises. Kramer’s study aimed to fill this gap.
Kramer studied 16 cases of penile fractures treated at the University of Maryland Hospital between 2004 and 2011.
Half of the patients were having extramarital affairs, the study found. Most were having sex in unusual places, including bathrooms, cars and elevators. Only three patients were having sex with their own wives in their own bedrooms, Kramer said.
I dunno about you, but that all has me crossing my legs and cringing. And I’m a chick who has NEVER cheated. Guys, smarten up…and don’t let your little heads lead you into someplace your BIG head doesn’t want you to go. Like, oh, say, the emergency room.
