Invaginated. That’s the technical term doctors use to describe your man-hood being turned inside-out . . . er, outside-in. And yes, it could happen to you.
Also known as “trapped man-hood,” invagination is usually the result of some kind of forceful impact on your rod. Basically, your man-hood is smashed straight back into your body with so much force that it becomes “trapped” in the fatty, subcutaneous tissue located between your pelvis and pecker, explains Hsin-Kai Wang, M.D., of Taipei Veterans General Hospital in Taiwan.
According to photos from Dr. Wang’s recent case study of a motorcycle accident victim, this condition resembles an empty sheath of skin not unlike the end of an elephant’s trunk.
The good news is that this sort of accident is very uncommon, Wang says. Also, it’s largely reversible through “manual extraction” and surgery. “There was no direct injury to the man-hood during the incident,” Dr. Wang said of his very lucky report subject. This guy was able to have s*x and urinate normally after his man-hood was “extracted”—which is a lot more than we can say for most of the unfortunate SOBs on this list.

The result of a blocked lymph node or a bacterial infection . to chlamydia, this rare condition leaves the man-hood swollen and twisted, according to a case study from India. Also known as “ram’s horn” man-hood, drugs can help with the swelling and twisting, and normal urination is achievable—if you turn sideways. But s*x may be impossible, the authors say.
Shoddy bowel surgery or prostate cancer treatment can, in very rare cases, lead to a “fistula”—a tissue tear that connects your urinary canal to your rectum. Telltale signs of this condition are urine dripping from your b*tt and, yes, feces making its way into your pee channel and bladder. It’s fully reversible, but the recovery is long and difficult, according to materials published . the urology department at the University of Utah.
If the piranhas, caimans, and stingrays aren’t enough to keep you from taking a dip in the Amazon River, maybe this’ll do the trick: The candiru, or “toothpick fish,” has been known to dart into the man-hood openings of swimming men. Confusing your urethra for a fish’s breathing gill, this freshwater catfish—once inserted—opens a network of umbrella-like spines, allowing it to feast on your blood. Extraction is as painful as you’d imagine.
If part of your man-hood shaft is accidentally cut away along with foreskin during a botched circumcision, your man-hood can grow attached to your scrotum as it heals. The result is a shaft “buried,” or stuck, in the layer of fat located around your private partia. Fortunately, it’s fully correctable through surgery, shows research from Eastern Virginia Medical School.
TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE
A plaque buildup in your man-hood causes Peyronie’s disease—a dramatic curve in your Johnson that makes erections painful and s*x difficult. Even more frightening: Between 65,000 and 120,000 middle-aged men are diagnosed with the disease each year in the United States. Drugs or surgery may help. But a full recovery isn’t guaranteed, says Culley C. Carson III, M.D., of the University of North Carolina.
While there are no bones in your boner, you can “break” your man-hood’ corpus cavernosa—cylindrical tubes that fill with blood when you have an erection, according to doctors from Ohio State University. If these tubes are bent while you’re hard—usually the result of vigorous s*x—they can rupture and cause blood to fill your man-hood, leading to swelling and permanent deformity or loss of s*xual function if not surgically treated immediately, the OSU doctors say.
After drinking too much, most guys have misplaced keys or a wallet—or $100 spent on shots for buddies. But one Dominican Republic man woke up from a bender to find his man-hood missing. Neighbors of the 64-year-old informed him a dog had attacked him while he was drunk and chewed off his member.
A PERMANENT GESTURE
After having his girlfriend’s initials tattooed on his shaft, an Iranian man enjoyed a 3-month erection followed . a permanent state of semi-rigidness. The cause: abnormally high blood flow resulting from the tattoo artist’s needle going a little too deep. Since he could still have s*x, the guy decided he’d just live with it. Think of it as a radical cure for whiskey-man-hood.
ROUGH DAY AT WORK
A Florida man filed suit against a staffing agency after his man-hood and testicles were shorn away . an “industrial peeler.” Designed to lop uneven edges off carpet rolls, the peeler claimed the man’s package after he was assigned to operate the machine without adequate training—or so his lawsuit claims.
