Penile Fracture: Study Links Broken Penises To Infidelity

Penile fractures do exist! And to add a side order of shame to the mix, “half the patients admitted to fracturing their penises during an extramarital affair,”  According to the study, which was published last month, penile fracture occurs when the “tunica albuginea” — the fibrous membrane surrounding the tissue in the center of the penis — is torn during the bending or buckling of an erect penis. It can result in erectile dysfunction if not surgically repaired. OUCH! The doctor says that a fractured penis most commonly happens when a man or woman is on top ” he/she comes down on the erect penis and it buckles. Protect that penis from getting buckled, or getting hit at an angle, because that’s where it’ll happen.” Mike Enders

Dr. Andrew Kramer, a urologist and assistant professor of surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center, studied 16 cases of penile fracture between 2004 and 2011 that required surgery. Half the patients admitted to fracturing their penises during an extramarital affair.
