Gentlemen: The above is a product that you should probably avoid if you cherish your virility. Gawker explains why:
29-year-old Adrian Carter of Houston says he experienced “significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror” after engaging in sexual intercourse with his “paramour” at a local motel.
He rushed to the emergency room, where doctors were forced to “deglove” his penis in order to fix the fracture — a procedure that reportedly resulted in his inability to copulate or produce progeny.
Ouch! But to be fair, maybe the placebo effect was more to blame for this broken dong:
“What happens is, when a guy has an erection, the penis is filled with blood and there’s a lot of pressure,” Dr. LeRoy Jones said. “If the pelvic bone hits the penis, you can kinda think of the penis as buckling. You can get a rupture and blood can leak out.”
Dr. Jones further noted that it’s highly unlikely the pills were responsible — mostly because they don’t work. “Maybe guys will have a placebo effects,” he said, “but there’s nothing in there that will help them.”
Likely scenario: Youngish guy, trying to impress his girlfriend with his amatory prowess, takes some snake oil he only thinks will improve his performance; gets carried away; pushes too hard; hits an immovable object with his “irresistible force”; breaks penis. Happens all the time, right?
