A middle-aged man has had a skipping rope removed from his urethra, according to media reports.

Citing the Sanxia Business Times, Shanghaiist writes the man from Hubei province China, had inserted the rope for “sexual pleasure”.

It adds: “X-ray scans showed the skipping rope stuck in the narrowest part of the man’s urethra, with 10 centimetres hanging out the urethral opening.”

An image reveals the knotted green plastic rope, which was 1.1m long and 4.4mm thick, arranged next to a ruler.

Shanghai Daily quotes the improbably named ‘Dr Dong’ as stating the patient’s actions were “ridiculous” because he had put his own life at risk.

The rope was removed via surgery as pulling it out forcefully would have caused serious bleeding and infection.

Last year we brought you news of a 70-year-old Australian man who had a 10cm fork safely removed from his penis.

The utensil had been lodged in his urethra for sexual gratification, the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports revealed.

The report, entitled An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body noted: "The motives for insertion of a variety of objects are difficult to comprehend."

The fork was removed by a team at Canberra Hospital using forceps and "copious lubrication" while the patient was under general anaesthetic.

Needles, pencils, wire, allen keys, toothbrushes, lightbulbs, thermometers, plants, vegetables, leeches, snakes, cocaine and glue were some of the other alien objects retrieved from other parts of the body in the report, the Canberra Times revealed.

"It is apparent that the human mind is uninhibited let alone creative," the medical journal added.

This special brand of creativity was very much in evidence in April, when it was revealed a man had been treated in a Chinese hospital after informing doctors he had a live eel stuck up his bottom.

The unmarried man, who arrived alone at a hospital casualty unit in Shunde, Guangdong province, told medics he had been imitating a porn film when he inserted the eel.

"Please, please help me. The eel is moving through my body," he begged.
