Men asked to stop injecting their penises with cooking oil to make them larger
A bit of news on a Friday that literally nobody needs.
But it's a mind f*ck, so we're writing about it anyway.
Men in Papua New Guinea are being urged to stop injecting their penises with cooking oil to make them bigger.
So far, there has been about 500 cases of men and boys as young as 16 having to go through medical procedures because their penises eventually burst open.
According to The Guardian, a surgeon at Port Moresby General Hospital said that in the past two years he has had to deal with hundreds of cases for penile disfigurement and dysfunction.
"We don’t know how many of them are out there,” said the surgeon, Akule Danlop.
“The bulk of them have abnormal, lumpy masses growing over the penis and sometimes involving the scrotum. A good number are coming in with ulcers; they eventually burst open."
Akule added that some of the men are unable to get an erection after surgery, and in some case they will never be able to have sex again.
As well as cooking oil, men are also injecting coconut oil and silicone into their man parts. Maybe just don't, though?
