British Man breaks penis ‘vertically’ – first person in the world to encounter such penile fracture
In short, penile fracture means “breaking” of penis. Now, you may be wondering, when there are no bones in the penis, how can it “break”. Well, there are several tissues around the urethra in the penis. A lot of blood flows into these tissues when a man is aroused and when the penis becomes erect. Rough sex or masturbation or unusual bending of penis can result in ‘horizontal’ break of these tissues with a popping sound. This is called as ‘Penile Fracture’ in medical terms and it is a medical emergency that has to be treated with a surgery.

In this interesting case of a British Man who broke his penis, it was not a horizontal break but a vertical one. The tissues inside the penis split up vertically, along the penis.
What was the British man doing that resulted in vertical break of his penis?
Well, the doctors say that he “buckled against his partner’s perineum”. May be he was pushing it hard against his partner’s perineum? He will be right person to explain in detail we guess. Perineum is the area between the penis/vagina and the anus of a person. It has several nerve endings and stimulating the area by rubbing and massaging may make your partner feel good, sometimes even better than actual penetrative sex.
What happened to the man’s penis after it broke vertically?
The man didn’t hear any sound, not sure if he had any pain when he broke his manhood. Eventually (may be in few minutes), he lost his erection and then the penis started swelling as the blood filled up the broken area to start healing.
Doctors in UK fixed the man’s penis and he is able to have normal erections and able to have sex like before. Penis was not bent either after recovery. So, that’s a 100% recovery from penile vertical fracture, we can say.
What activities can cause penile fracture?
- Rough masturbation. To achieve more pleasure from pain, some people squeeze, twist and turn their penis while masturbating. Penis gets hard when it is filled with blood and any application of tremendous force is going to break it and make things worse.
- Pressing your erect penis against the bed or floor while sleeping. When you press your penis hard against the bed by lying on your belly, the chances of it breaking are higher. Similarly during prone masturbation, you will increase the odds of breaking of your penis.
- During rough sex. Inspired by porn, or trying to become a super hero in bed, some people try to do it rough and wild only to break their pleasure organ.
What to do when your penis breaks?
Give no second thought, rush to your nearest sexologist or urologist. “Penile fracture is a serious issue and will need a surgery to fix it” says Dr. Karthik Gunasekaran, one of the top sexologist in Chennai. When a person comes with a broken penis, the immediate step is to repair it surgically. The surgery involves removing the blood from the fractured area, close the gap formed by the breakage and connecting the broken blood vessels.
