Peruvian Man in Sexual Marathon For Seven Days: Erection Shown Below
Peru farmer hospitalized with eight-day erection
Fri Apr 3, 1:01 am ET
LIMA, (AFP) – A Peruvian farmer underwent an operation after complaining of severe pain from an eight-day erection, a doctor at a hospital in the northern city of Sullana said.
"The patient arrived at the hospital in great pain because of the erection," surgeon Nelson Carrasco told AFP, adding that the 53-year-old had not taken a sexual stimulant or alcohol.
He said the patient, whose identity was withheld, suffered from priapism, a persistent erection of the penis often due to a blood clot in the erectile tissue.
Carrasco said the man underwent surgery at the Sullana hopsital, about 1000 kilometers (600 miles) north of Lima.
But he added, "We are looking for the cause of the priapism because if we don't find a solution it could reappear again."
Several men at the press conference held by the attending surgeon and his patient asked if it were possible to induce temporary priapisms. The surgeon laughingly offered to give the men free dickectomies instead.
Several of the patient's female friends crowded around the surgeon, to ask if the man's problem would re-appear soon and if it was a permanent condition.
When the patient was asked why he had waited 8 days before seeking medical attention, he replied, "Are you loco my friend? My wife would have killed me. My girlfriend would have done worse. And my neighbor's wife? She comes over every morning after her husband leaves for work. These women are insatiable. I need to move to Arequipa or some other place in the south."
