Man Attempting To Achieve Erection Severely Injured After Partner Puts Expanding Foam Inside Urethra

Just reading about this (and seeing the picture of the foam, my god) gave me an anxiety attack. Proceed with caution.

Via DailyMail:

An American man may never be able to use his penis again after his partner accidentally sprayed expanding foam up his urethra in a sex act gone wrong. The 45-year-old patient had to have a new opening cut between his scrotum and his anus to urinate when the foam hardened and became ‘anchored’ in his penis. Medics who treated him revealed he will only qualify for reconstructive surgery if he passes a psychiatric evaluation.

The unidentified man was struggling with impotence, and had been inserting various objects into the opening of his penis during sex to stay erect. But things went horribly wrong during one of these sessions when the man’s partner tried to use the straw of a can of insulation spray to keep him firm. At some point the man’s unidentified partner accidentally hit the button on top of the can, deploying the foam inside of his penis. The foam, normally used for home insulation, hardened and he was left with several masses in the inside of his member and bladder.

Urologists who detailed the incident in Urology Case Reports said the man waited three weeks to seek medical attention. He only went for treatment after finding it increasingly sore and difficult to urinate. By the time he arrived at hospital he was passing blood. Once he raised the alarm with medics, scans found various masses of the hardened foam with some measuring up to nearly 11cm (4 inches) long.

Urologists told the MailOnline that ‘sounding’, where men insert various objects into the opening of their urethra, was becoming an increasingly common ‘home-remedy’ among impotent men, despite carrying serious health risks.
