A Thailand man had to call emergency services to remove a sex toy from his penis after it got stuck.
The 30-year-old male, whose identity was not released, was using a sex ring at his home Oct. 19 when the device became stuck on his penis, the Daily Mail reported. He called emergency services and was rushed to a nearby hospital in Bangkok.
Photos show medics attempting to remove the penis ring with bolt cutters and a hacksaw. Doctors reportedly had difficulty containing their laughter during the procedure.
“The man put the metal alloy ring on his penis for some kind of sex game at home,” Volunteer rescue worker Jakchai Banyensakul told the Daily Mail. “I'm not sure if it was one he'd bought from a shop or something he found in the garage. But he hadn't measured himself properly and when his penis expanded he could not remove it.”
“He was very worried and in a lot of discomfort,” Banyensakul added. “He called the emergency services and volunteer rescue workers had to take him to [the] hospital. He was in so much pain he couldn't get there himself.”
Banyensakul said medics used lubrication in a removal attempt, to no avail.
“They had to use a saw and pliers to stretch the ring and then pull it off,” Banyensakul explained. “He was very sore afterwards and a bit embarrassed but thankful to still be able to use his penis properly.”
Doctors spent three hours trying to remove the ring. They were finally able to break the ring open using a huge bolt cutter.
“The metal was really strong and it took two or three hours to completely break it open. It was made from very strong thick metal,” Banyensakul said. “Thankfully the man suffered no injuries and he was able to go home. I don't think he'll be using a ring again though.”
