A middle-aged man from Honduras needed an emergency operation to remove his penis after he got it stuck in a bottle he was using as a sex toy, according to reports.
The 50-year-old man, whose name was not released, was rushed to a hospital after his penis turned black and started to decay, the Daily Mail reported.
Dr. Dennis Chirinos said the man, who was not married and did not have a girlfriend, was trying to relieve his sexual frustration.
“So he put his penis in a bottle and this caused the death and necrosis of the penis,” said Chirinos, a urologist who performed the bizarre operation.
“When he arrived four days later we had to amputate the penis completely because it was completely dead,” he said at a press conference at the hospital.
Chirinos said the blood vessels in the penis constrict when put into a bottle for four hours, leading to the removal of the organ.
“This is an embarrassing emergency,” Chirinos said. “The situation with this patient is that he didn’t get the medical attention in time and this caused the penis to begin to decay and die completely.”
