Man hears a "snap" when his penis breaks. And it looks as bad as it sounds.

Apparently, it swelled like an eggplant…

A 42-year-old Boston man has broken his penis during intercourse, and it isn’t pretty.

For more: A man born with two penises answers all your questions.

The otherwise healthy individual presented to the emergency department of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston complaining of severe penis pain, which was later revealed to be a penile “fracture.”

The man heard a “snap” and noticed a rush of blood.

According to The New England Journal of Medicine, the man had been engaging in sexual intercourse when his “erect penis had inadvertently collided with his partner’s perineum”.

Or, in layperson’s terms, the unfortunate gentleman was so eager to have sex that he slammed his erection into his partner’s crotch and broke it. (His penis, that is. Her crotch remained intact.)

“He heard a snap, noticed a rush of blood from the meatus, had immediate detumescence, and had severe pain,” Dr Robert Hartman Jr writes of the incident.

“Classic eggplant deformity”. Oh yeah, that old chestnut.

“The classic eggplant deformity (swelling, discolouration, and deviation away from the defect in the tunica) can be seen.”

That is to say, the man’s penis swelled and went purple or as Coldplay would put it: there was “A Rush Of Blood To The Head”.

The patient received emergency surgery and was discharged from hospital the following morning. He returned for a check-up a few months later and was not experiencing any penile dysfunction. Fewf.

The tale will live on in medical journals however and a picture can be seen here. <===

A warning though, it is not for the faint hearted nor any one hoping to eat eggplant tonight.

So, tell us – did you look? (We looked)
