A man has had his “completely dead” penis removed after it was stuck in a bottle he was using as a sex toy for four days.
The 50-year-old eventually sought help at a Honduran hospital where he was told he was suffering from necrosis, a death of body cells.
Urologist Dr Dennis Chirinos carried out the operation and said the man will never be able to have sex again.
He added: “It’s a strange case, it’s happened before, bit it’s still strange.
“We had a 50-year-old patient, that, because he didn’t have a girlfriend or a wife, wanted to relieve his sexual frustration.
“So he put his penis in a bottle and this caused the death and necrosis of the penis.
“When he arrived four days later we had to amputate the penis completely because it was completely dead.
“When you put your penis into a bottle it causes a constriction in the blood vessels of the penis and within four hours you can lose the penis.”
As an added precaution Chirinos also asked men to make sure they clean their penis three times a day to protect against infection.
He also advised against using bottles as sex toys.
