Bid to improve sexual prowess goes wrong
A MALAYSIAN man who embedded 10 ball bearings in his penis to enhance his sexual prowess was forced to remove them when he failed to get an erection for almost six months.
Upon removing them, the 44-year-old man, known only as Ramli, was shocked to find that the tiny balls had become rusty, reported Malaysian newspaper Harian Metro.
He told the paper he was inspired to embed the bearings through self-surgery after a friend, who claimed to have done it, boasted about his sexual stamina.
Relating his hazardous venture in 2004, Ramli said he peeled off part of the skin with a knife and planted the ball bearings around the base of his penis.
"My private part swelled up for three days, but I endured the pain and didn't see a doctor," he said.
Several months later, he began to experience excruciating pain and sought help from a doctor, who advised him to remove the bearings surgically or risk becoming impotent for life.
