A Thai man has had to have a metal ring removed from around his penis by doctors after he tried to enlarge his member ahead of a Valentine’s Day date.
The man, who has not been named, was rushed to hospital in Bangkok after his penis began swelling uncontrollably.
He said he had been looking forward to meeting a woman for a Valentine’s date on Sunday and had wanted to impress her by enlarging his penis.
Having heard that rings could create the desired effect by forcing blood into the glands, he headed for his toolbox and dug out a suitable bit of kit.
He used baby oil to slide his penis into the nut but soon experienced problems. By the next day, his penis had started to swell and the man began experiencing pain.
A Thai man was rushed to hospital after getting a metal ring stuck on his penis. He told doctors in Bangkok that he had been trying to enlarge his member in order to impress a Valentine’s Day date. It took a painful hour of surgery to remove the ring
Worse still, he found he was unable to remove the 3cm-wide nut from his appendage.
He eventually called emergency services on Saturday afternoon, having struggled with the problem since Friday morning. The team rushed the man to hospital.
Eye-wincing pictures show how medics had to use a metal-cutter to slice through the ring as the man clung to the bed rails in pain. After an hour, he was free.
‘I was terrified that I would need my penis amputated. It had swollen so much that I thought it would burst,’ the man said.
Doctors used a hand-held steel tool, a pair of pliers and a thin metal sheet, which they slid under the ring to avoid cutting the man’s skin.
Despite the pain, the procedure was successful and staff managed to remove the nut without any additional damage to the man’s penis.
He was given antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory cream to reduce the swelling.

‘This was one of the strangest cases we have ever encountered,’ rescue volunteer Winai Pong said.
‘Most of the time it’s only people getting their finger stuck in a ring, so it was surprising when we arrived at the man’s house and he had his penis stuck in there.
‘We knew that cutting the nut wouldn’t be a problem, as we used the same technique with finger rings, but we were just worried about the pain the man would be experiencing while removing it.’
The injured man told medics that he had a date planned with a girlfriend and ‘just wanted to impress her’. He was unable to go on the date.
Doctors said the man had refused to tell them how he managed to get the nut stuck on his penis. They said he was using it as a substitute for an ‘erection-enhancing loop’.
Doctors also added that the man’s odd adventure had not left any permanent damage to his penis but that it could take a few weeks before it will function again normally.
