Recently, a man arrived at a hospital in Shenyang, Liaoning province to receive treatment after sticking more than a dozen needles up his urethra.
The man, in his thirties, had been shoving sewing needles inside his penis for the past year, the victim of some extremely undesirable mental disorder. Eventually, he couldn’t take the pain any longer and was forced to seek medical help. Doctors successfully removed 15 needles from his urinary tract, some of which had already begun to rust.
One of the doctors who performed the operation on the man urged those with friends and family members who practiced similar “unusual hobbies” to help seek out medical attention as soon as possible — rather than wait around until they’ve shoved over a dozen needles up their pee hole.
