Doctors Remove Fork From Penis

Doctors removed a fork from a 70-year-old Australian man’s penis after he inserted it into his urethra and it, of course, got stuck. Because it’s not every day you have to take a fork out of a man’s penis (using “copious lubrication” and forceps, according to the report), three doctors wrote about the procedure for a medical journal, in an article titled “An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body.” But maybe it’s not as unusual as you might hope: “Autoerotic stimulation with the aid of self-inserted urethral foreign bodies has been existent since time immemorial and have presented an unusual but known presentation to urologists,” reads the report, listing such objects as wire, Allen keys, toothbrushes, leeches, and lightbulbs.
