The time surrounding this year’s World Cup has witnessed a lot of strange, strange happenings in China, some involving fake kidnappings others innocently centered around animal soccer games. But this one, right here, may beat them all by a long shot. Last Monday, a man broke his penis while passionately fooling around with his wife. The doctor’s reasoning? His engine was weakened by two weeks of “World Cup sexual abstinence.”
The man surnamed Xu is a football fan and watched every single game since the beginning of the World Cup. He and his wife, living in Jinhua City, have been married for seven years and had a great relationship. But this perfect world collapsed last Monday morning. The Shanghai Daily reports:
After the Netherlands defeated Mexico, Xu returned to the bedroom and saw his wife sleeping. He felt sorry for his lack of intimacy toward her in recent weeks and woke her up. They soon started making love and due to their recent lack of sexual activity, they were more enthusiastic than usual […].
They both heard a snapping sound in the middle of their love making and Xu felt some pain. They turned a light on and were surprised to see some blood and Xu’s penis bent at a 30 degree angle […].
The next day he had surgery for a ruptured corpora cavernosa at Jinhua Municipal Central Hospital.
Xu’s penis is now recovering. At least he won’t miss the next World Cup game since sexual intercourse isn’t an option anymore.
