PSA: What I've learned from the ER about dildos

    Or buttplug, or anything that is going to go up your ass...

    There is a lot of choice out there.

    Having now seen three men in the emergency room in the past two years with dildos stuck in their colon, I would like to encourage everyone to stop buying, or using a dildo or anal sex toy that does not have a wide, flanged base. One of the guys required a laparotomy (i.e. an incision from the middle of your chest to the top of the pubic hair line) because, even under the anesthetic (which pretty much allows surgeons, in colo-rectal surgery, to stick a hand in there without too much of a problem), the dildo was firmly stuck.

    Lots of toys are designed under the guise of being for women. Female anatomy is such that it's pretty hard to get something long stuck in there; and most of the stimulation isn't from deep penetration anyways.

    As much as I'm sure some people like to think they have total anal control, a lot of those muscles are under involuntary control. And it's not difficult to suck one of those babies up there.

    This toy, is gay-hazardous:

    Note that it is narrow at the tip, gradually gets wider, and then doesn't suddenly get wider at the base.

    This one is also gay-hazardous:

    I'm not sure what you can and can't post here, but most dildos that are "life-like" with balls attached would be good choices, as would something like this:

    3071-1-hr.jpg

    A good rule of thumb is that if it looks even vaguely like something you could have pushed out, then it's definitely possible to suck it in.

    None of the three men I saw were not mortified to come into the emergency room. One of them had waited for 5 days, hoping it would pass. Every surgical resident knows at least one case requiring _massive_ surgery. I'm not saying it happens often. It's quite rare actually. But why put yourself through something that's quite preventable?

    Thanks a lot for that.

    And ouch indeed. There was a case here that caused quite a scandal. A gay man ended up with a six-inch body spray canister stuck up his butt. A medical student (with not even a scolding from the doctors present) recorded and youtubed the operation where it shows all of them laughing about the poor guy's predicament. The video is still up in YouTube I think. though it's really blech. Some doctors lost their licenses and some student never graduated because of that.

    Yeah, I remember that incident. Oddly, it hasn't really affected a whole lot in the way some physicians practice over here.

    I think it's partly that medical and nursing staff see so many horrible things in the ER that when something like this comes up, you can't help but laugh. making a video and posting it is horrible, but i'm sorry, if you come in with something stuck up there expect a few chuckles as they figure out how to remove it safely.

    oh man, the list of stuff we've seen come through those doors stuck up peoples asses.... cell phone, vibrator (still vibrating mind you), a sharpie marker, you get the idea...

    That is the most bizarre coming out story I have ever heard, or will likely hear in my lifetime. I don't think The National Enquirer could come up with a story this unusual. I can just see the headlines now "Gay teen comes out to parents after surgery removes stuck dildo from his bum."

    I am just glad BearCub17 you did not suffer any permanent damage.

    My brother has worked as an ER doctor for 23 years, and I think the most gruesome thing he saw was when a 9 year old came in with a fishhook in his eye. He was standing behind his brother who was casting for fish, and well you can imagine the rest. OUCH!

    one of my fellow paramedic student's very first call for her EMT-Basic rotations was a guy who decided to go to town on a banana tha he duct taped to the coffee table while his wife was out of town.

    she came home monday a very dead husband with a banana up his bum.

    He Vagal'd out and died.
