A 17-year-old boy in Anxi, Fujian, frustrated by the unwanted boners that are a constant feature of normal male development (f’ing hormones, how do they work?) tried to cut his penis off.
According to the Strait Metropolis Daily, the boy was at home in bed on a Saturday night, when, afflicted by boneritis, he took a knife and tried to castrate himself. Most men use a… different method for getting rid of erections late at night.
The hospital was able to stop his bleeding before transferring him to Second Affiliated Hospital of Fujian Medical University. According to the doctor, the patient said (doctor-patient confidentiality doesn’t exactly exist in China) he was ashamed of constantly getting erections in public, in broad daylight, and that it made him feel loathsome and depressed. He had been suffering for a long time before turning to the knife.
“Confronted with this journalist’s questions, [the 17-year-old] didn’t say a single word from start to finish,” writes Strait Metropolis Daily reporter Yu Zhicun.
Doctors successfully operated on the young man, who is expected to recover sexual functioning.
This case is a sad reflection of the woeful state of sex-education in China, and the shaming of natural sexuality that comes with a culture too squeamish to allow its citizens to even watch porn.
