BROKEN PENIS: IS IT POSSIBLE?

BROKEN PENIS: IS IT POSSIBLE?

‘’Pleasure of love lasts but a moment. The pain of love lasts a lifetime.’’

—BETTE DAVIS

 Are you wondering if the penis can break? Most people argue the penis is unbreakable since it has no bone. True, it has no bony structures, and despite slang terms that imply the penis is shatterproof, it is very possible. A broken penis, formerly referred to as a penile fracture, is an uncommon injury to an erect penis when bent forcefully. A broken penis means that the protective lining (tunica albuginea) of the two blood-filling cylinders of the penis, corpus cavernosum and corpora cavernosa, has fallen apart. According to a Brazilian research study, 1 in every 175,000 can concede this trauma. Read on to know how your penis can break, its presenting signs and how you can protect yourself from this unfortunate incident.

 HOW DOES THE PENIS BREAK?

The penis can only break when erect; a flaccid penis can never break. Some major common causes of penile fracture are:

  1. Sex- The most common sex position responsible for penile fracture is reverse cowgirl or any other position that places your partner on top. It occurs when the penis redirects wrongly and strikes the pelvis, a body prominence in a woman.
  1. Taqaandan- This ritual is mainly practiced in the middle eastern or central Asia to cease erection or manipulate penis shape and size.
  1. Vigorous masturbation
  1. Rolling over in bed with an erect penis
  1. Slamming your erect penis against any external hard surface

 HOW CAN I TELL IF I BREAK MY PENIS?

Aside from the obvious debilitating local pain, there are other signs of fracture to the penis:

  1. You will hear a popping or cracking sound due to bending the penile structures.
  2. Instant loss of erection
  3. Bruising on the penis
  4. Blood is seen in urine or at the tip of the penis.

A Broken penis is nothing to joke about. It’s a medical emergency that can be life-threatening. If left unmanaged, it can lead to consequential complications like erectile dysfunction or painful erections, a deformed penis, and a urethrocutaneous fistula. And Yes, you can have total recovery after breaking your penis, but only with urgent surgical treatment to repair damage to the broken tissues. 

THE GOOD NEWS

The cases of penile fracture should not deter you from enjoying sex with your partner or masturbating according to how you like it, but caution you to thread carefully during sexual intercourse with your partner, masturbation, or whenever your penis is erected.
