A 70-year-old man presents to the Canberra Hospital's Emergency Department with a bleeding urethral meatus following self-insertion of a 10cm fork into the urethra to achieve sexual gratification.
The steel cutlery item was inserted into his urethra for his sexual gratification, a write-up in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports said.
Multiple retrieval methods were contemplated with success achieved via forceps traction and copious lubrication.
The fork, which was not visible from the outside but doctors were able to feel it, had been lodged in the organ for 12 hours before the man sought treatment.
It remains uncertain how the gentleman thought that could be achieved.
