A British woman deliberately bit off her boyfriend's tongue during a kiss after complaining she wanted a baby and wasn't getting pregnant, the BBC reported.
Tracey Davis, 40, and her boyfriend were celebrating his 45th birthday when she got upset and he tried to comfort her.
While Mark Coghill was moving closer to her, she asked him to kiss her.
"He did so and within a few seconds, she bit down hard on h is tongue." prosecutor Julian Smith said, according to the BBC . Obviously this caused him pain, he pulled back, and the tongue had come clean off in her mouth. She had the piece of tongue in her mouth, he saw her take it from her mouth, and it fell to the floor."
Coghill says the incident has left him struggling to speak, unable to distinguish between foods and no longer able to work.
"I will never enjoy a curry again," he said. "I can't distinguish between certain foods, like the difference between cheese and toast, and just toast.
