A drunk man in Jilong, Taiwan reportedly used scissors to cut off his own penis and testicles during an argument with his girlfriend, according to Chinese newspaper Kwong Wah Yit Poh, as translated by The Toronto Star Online.
The 46-year-old, whose name has not been released, reportedly flushed his love muscle down the toilet before his girlfriend rushed him to the hospital. By the time he got there, he had fallen into a coma due to blood loss, according to Rocket News 24’s translation of the Japanese-language website Big Globe News.
Doctors said that had the man not flushed his penis, they likely would have been able to reattach it, according to Big Globe News.
With only 1.2 inches of manhood left, the man is reportedly still able to urinate. He has reportedly emerged from his coma and is expected to recover.
Is this story too bizarre to be believed? Maybe, but it’s not the first time a man intentionally dismembered his member. In June 2012, a California man severed his own penis with an X-acto knife.
