A man was left in excruciating pain after fracturing his penis in two places while he slept. 

Sharing eye-watering details of the freak accident in a medical journal, doctors told how the man heard a horrifying ‘snap’ sound after rolling on his erect member while sleeping. 

The unidentified 27-year-old, from Tunisia, waited 36 hours before seeking medical attention.

Medics at Ibn El Jazzar Hospital in Kairouan said he had an ‘eggplant deformity’ — a tell-tale sign of penile fracture.

He required an op to repair both tears.  

Sharing eye-watering details of the freak accident in a medical journal, doctors told how the man heard a horrifying ‘snap’ sound after rolling on his erect member while sleeping. The unidentified 27-year-old, from Tunisia , waited 36 hours before seeking medical attention. Medics at Ibn El Jazzar Hospital in Kairouan said he had an ‘eggplant deformity’ — a tell-tale sign of penile fracture 

Although the penis is not a bone, it can fracture when the appendage is subject to sharp, blunt force. 

In many cases, a cracking or popping sound is heard. 

Afterwards, the penis usually resembles an ‘aubergine’, turning purple and swollen. 

Such injuries typically happen during vigorous sex, with positions like ‘doggy’ and ‘cowgirl’ known to present the biggest risk. 

Doctors who treated him claimed the gruesome injury was ‘followed by immediate detumescence’, meaning he went flaccid. 

Scans showed two separate fractures which were 3cm apart and measured 10mm and 7mm, respectively. Both were repaired with sutures. 

He suffered no lasting damage, with swelling reducing after two days.

He could also reportedly urinate normally again just four days after the procedure.

A penis fracture happens instantaneously and requires urgent medical treatment. 

For a man to get an erection, two spongy tubes called the corpora cavernosa fill up with blood and harden. These are surrounded by a fibrous lining, known as tunica albuginea.

A fracture occurs when these areas rupture.

Writing in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports, doctors said that men suffering ‘two distinct fractures’ is a ‘rarity in the current literature’.

They added: ‘Single fractures are reported more frequently.’

HOW DOES A PENIS FRACTURE?

A penile fracture occurs when the appendage is subject to a sharp, blunt force trauma, which can occur during vigorous intercourse or masturbation.

Since 1924, 1,600 cases have been recorded worldwide – roughly 16 instances per year, the Telegraph reported in 2017. 

Researchers noted that in 50 per cent of cases, a gruesome cracking sound can be heard. Four in five male victims lost their erection.

Those who have already been traumatised from breaking their penis are often left with erectile dysfunction problems and a lifetime of painful sex.  

A report in 2017 revealed a man from southern China who was left in agony after breaking his penis during sex with his wife.

Doctors found that his penis was at an odd angle and was in a swollen shape that made it look like an eggplant.

He was diagnosed with a penile fracture after tearing a sponge-like erectile tissue called corpora cavernosa.

Blood flows into corpora cavernosa that runs along the penis and makes it hard during an erection.

The trick to stopping penile injuries is to thrust quite shallowly, according to sex expert Tracey Cox.

Holding your partner close to you using a grinding rather than thrusting motion will also reduce the risk, she told MailOnline.
