Shocked doctors had to perform emergency surgery on a man in the Australian capital of Canberra after he lodged a 10-cm steel fork inside his penis for sexual pleasure.

According to a paper titled “An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body” that was published in the International Journal of Surgery, the 70-year-old man arrived at the emergency room in Canberra Hospital with a bleeding penis “following self-insertion of a fork into the urethra to achieve sexual gratification.” The fork was not visible and “multiple retrieval methods were contemplated.” Success was achieved using forceps and “copious lubrication” and the man, who was put under general anesthesia, was sent home.
