|Two glass tubes stuck in the colorectum|
A 17-year-old man presented to the emergency room with abdominal pain and a foreign body in his anus. He told doctors he had inserted a pencil into his rectum and then had anal sex with the pencil still in there. He was treated and released, news.vice.com reports.
According to the report, the man's case is one of nearly 450 sex injuries found over six years in the United States's National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), which is compiled by the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission.
"It's not uncommon that we see this, but it's not a daily occurrence," emergency physician Dr. Robert Glatter, of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, said of sex-related injuries. "We've had a woman with a head injury and fractured cervical spine, who basically ended up going forward into a headboard. She was very dizzy at the time and was on top of this gentleman lurching forward into a headboard."
In another sex injury in the database, a 62-year-old man sustained a penile crushing injury after putting homemade PCVP pipe rings and the ring off a horse halter around his penis. He, too, was treated and released.
Most of the sex injuries involved foreign objects used for pleasure that disappeared and got stuck in certain orifices, according to the data. Objects included vibrators and other sex toys as well as some other objects, including a "spikey (sic) rubber ball that lights up," a screwdriver, the handle of a toilet plunger, and a pool ball.
