The Casualties of Sex

Dear Sugar
I think I broke my penis. During intercourse, (from behind) I missed on re-entry at a pretty dangerous speed. It hurt but not that badly. More than anything else it scared me. When I woke up yesterday morning it was black. I am totally bugging. I thought it would go away by today but it hasn't, it only looks worse and swollen. Should I go and see a doctor or wait it out?

Dear Wounded Woody
Yes, in fact it is true - a penis, like a dry twig can break. A hard penis is filled with blood under the skin. One layer below the blood is a tight and thick ligament. If an erection bends too quickly and too hard, that ligament can snap. Immediate treatment is key or you are looking at a growing disaster. Bruises like you are experiencing can enlarge to the size of a tangerine. A small surgery to remove the swelling is necessary and then you should be back to normal and 100% functioning in no time.
