Do not inject your testicles with olive oil, you’re going to have a bad time. A 50-year-old man from Thailand learned it the hard way after undergoing an illegal procedure to make his penis larger.
I had olive oil injected into my penis 19 years ago. A friend had done it and told us about it. That friend did injections for me and two others at home.
Three years after the injection the tip of his penis showed signs of infection, according to the unidentified patient, and he had it circumcised. Years later the infections recurred. The man suffered a cut to his penis about 6 months before he was admitted to the Bangkok hospital with what a doctor described as “coconut-sized” genitals. Untreated, the man “was ashamed to visit a doctor, but the pain and the infection grew so he had no choice,” doctor told reporters. The man was admitted to a private hospital where doctors found he had penile cancer, and due to the spread of infection through the region advised him to transfer to a government hospital to save money on the treatment.
His worst nightmare came to light as doctors told him his penis needed to be amputated. The amputation was only the start of bad news as Sirikul Jiraranaikhajorn, spokeswoman for Police General Hospital in Bangkok, reported “this is the biggest genital surgery we have ever done as we found cancer.” The cancer spread towards his abdomen and testicles, and though doctors were able to bypass his urethra to his anus, allowing him to control his urine, they aren’t so sure about his future. Dr. Surat Kittisupaporn, a urologist at the hospital, explains:
The cancer and the wound was so severe when they brought him in. There is a good chance that the cancer will spread again in the future.
Injecting olive oil into one’s penis for enlargement is an increasingly common trend in Thailand, an illegal back-alley procedure that doesn’t lead to desirable results. It’s also done with bees wax, silicone and even paraffin (the stuff used in candles, wax paper and lubricants), but olive oil is the cheapest and most preferred method. The Police General Hospital reports that 30-40 men come each month to their hospital with penile complications from this dangerous and ineffective procedure. Pol Lt Gen Jongjate Aojanepong, surgeon-general of the Police General Hospital, claims that increased organ size through penis injections is a myth. This may be said in the better interest of the people though as there is some crude truth to the procedure. Jerry Hopkins is a bestselling author and has written about the strange medical procedure in his book Asian Aphrodisiacs, the first definitive survey in which he explores regions of Asia for the best and worst of the Asian native man’s quest to fulfill his wildest sexual desires. He talks about the injections that were commonplace in the region:
Many other substances have been injected directly into the Asian penis or scrotum, including silicone, collagen, mineral oil, KY Jelly, and Vaseline. This can cause enormous increases in girth of the penis and capacity of the scrotal sack–as much as several hundred percent–but it is effectively irreversible and may have side effects including loss of sensation, inability to perform penetrative intercourse, scarring, and deformation.
According to Jongjate, “there is no medical procedure to increase the size and make it work properly without causing harm. Normally, the procedure is used for erectile dysfunction.” He also explains that the body cannot absorb olive oil, and by injecting it the olive oil causes irritation to which the body reacts by building connective tissue that can often turn malignant. Jongjate strongly urges men who’ve had the procedure to consult a doctor as quickly as possible before they suffer any side-effects. He said the Police General Hospital has set up a special unit consisting of urinary and cosmetic specialists to attend to the cases, with psychologists being provided as well. “There are tens of thousands of men who have undergone the procedure. They should see a doctor, the sooner the better.”
According to Dr. Surat there are several methods to correcting the penis disorders caused by the injection, and some men may achieve penetration again.”They won’t get it back 100% but they may get an erection if they did not inject the substance into the ‘core’.” Unfortunately it is impossible to completely treat a disfigured penis, and he adds, “but if it turns out to be cancer, it has to be removed.”
Olive oil injections have had dire consequences before, such as those in a 1995 publication by the American College of Chest Physicians, reporting on a man who suffered respiratory failure from lesions on his lungs and genitalia, both resulting from the procedure. Many Thai men have underwent the procedure and have suffered inflammation, swelling and abscesses. A writer for Barstool Sports disagrees with the case, speculating that the 19-year-old surgery had little to no connection to the man’s recent penile cancer. Regardless of the cause for the 50-year-old man’s grief there is more than sufficient evidence to know that penis injections aren’t the way to go.
A word of advice for the “vertically challenged” guys: It’s better to have sex and disappointment than to never have sex at all.
