Every man’s worst fear came true for a Delhi man at the most unfortunate moment. He was brought to a hospital with a penile injury — classified as an ‘eggplant deformity’ by a medical journal — caused during vigorous sexual intercourse. In other words, he fractured his penis with a loud ‘snapping sound’ during vigorous sex. This case was recently published in detail in the BMJ Case Reports medical journal.

“A 32-year-old man was presented to our emergency department with pain, swelling and a dorsal curvature in his penis. He had severe pain and lost tumescence with a snapping sound during vigorous sexual intercourse. Taking the typical history and examination findings into account, the diagnosis of penile fracture was made,” the journal entry says.

According to the article, “Penile fracture occurs when an erect penis undergoes a blunt trauma during sexual intercourse or otherwise, bending the penile shaft and causing a tear/rupture…The diagnosis is usually clinical and requires prompt surgical intervention. Sometimes, the presentation may be occult and the patient may present with pain with or without swelling.”

It adds, “penile fracture should be identified and surgically explored at the earliest to avoid painful erections or erectile dysfunction.
