The news these days cease to amaze us…
A Chinese man had to seek medical help to remove a “sex pleasure toy” lodged in his intestines for five days, according to a state media report Thursday that said such cases were on the rise amid loosening attitudes towards sex. Doctors at Shanghai’s Zhongshan Hospital removed the 23-centimetre (nine-inch) “sex pleasure toy” from the 30-year-old man’s intestines using an endoscope, a hospital spokesman and a government-backed newspaper said.
“If we did not remove the “sex pleasure toy” in time, the man could have gone into critical condition,” said doctor Yao Liqing, quoted by the Shanghai Daily newspaper. “Doctors were astonished to see such a big item taken out of the patient’s body,” he added. He said the object had blocked the man’s large intestine and caused tissue damage, and doctors were contemplating surgery if the procedure had failed.
Shops selling sex toys and contraceptives are common in Chinese cities, as greater sexual freedom and a consumer culture take hold in the communist-ruled country. The Shanghai Daily said medical professionals were warning people to follow manufacturers’ instructions for using “sex pleasure toy” and not utilise them in “unintended” ways. “People must use sex toys properly and avoid ones that are too big as they can hurt people,” Yao said.
Seriously, though. How in the FAWK did he get a dildo all the way up or down his intestines?!?!?!?!
