- His mother said her son did not have a girlfriend and he was ‘bored’ because he had been staying at his home in Bangkok, Thailand, during the pandemic
A Thai man has suffered a permanently disfigured penis after he got it stuck in a padlock for two weeks.
The bachelor, 38, clamped the metal device around the base of his genitalia in a bizarre sex act but he lost the key and his penis started to swell.
He tried and failed to remove the small padlock so left it on his penis for more than 14 days until it became infected and the pain was so unbearable that he was rushed to hospital in Bangkok, Thailand.
The man’s embarrassed mother – who tried to help him – told medics that her son ‘likes putting his penis through small holes’.

She told the emergency services, who had arrived at the man’s home on Thursday night, that her son did not have a girlfriend and was ‘bored’ because he had been staying at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mother said: ‘My son is a private person and he doesn’t have a girlfriend. He has been staying at home a lot during the pandemic because he is worried about going out.
‘He told me he did this because he was bored and he likes putting his ‘thing’ through small holes. I was angry at him for embarrassing me like this and I’ve told him not to do it again.’
Rescue officer Thongchai Donson said they received the emergency call but the injury was ‘worse than they expected’ and had to rush the man, who they would not name, to the nearest hospital.
Medics spent more than 30 minutes using an electric cutter to slice through the metal lock. They slid a thin sheet of metal between the bar and the man’s skin to prevent it from being cut and squirted water onto his body for lubrication.

Once it was released, they administered antibiotic cream and gave the man penicillin tablets.
Despite his penis now being released, medics said there could be lasting damage because of the amount of time the padlock was stuck. His penis has also been disfigured by the ordeal.
Thongchai added: ‘We received the emergency call and did not know the full details, so we were surprised when we arrived. It was worse than we thought. If the padlock had stayed on for any longer, the infection could have been so bad that his penis would have started to rot and get gangrene.
‘In the hospital he was in pain and screaming so loudly because it was so swollen. Removing the metal was very difficult.
‘We can’t give the man’s name but we want to make the news public to prevent other people from doing this kind of thing. It can be very dangerous and damage the body.’
