A Thai man sliced off his own penis with a knife while watching porn and had to be rushed to the hospital as a result.
Whisanu Srisanao, 30, was watching hardcore porn on his smartphone in his apartment when the video "sent him into a frenzy". He then began slicing the skin from his penis in an outrageous act of sadomasochism.
Whisanu only came to his senses when blood started pouring uncontrollably from his penis. He then panicked and called paramedics.
Doctors arrived the fourth-floor apartment in the Khet Nong Chok district of Bangkok at 10.45pm to find him naked and holding his genitals. He told them he was watching porn and blamed the videos for making him cut his penis.
The paramedic who took the pictures said: "The man was unwilling to co-operate fully. He said 'I was watching porn, I was watching porn'."
"He blamed the videos for making him get too excited. He would not say anything more or tell us more details," the paramedic added. "We provided medical assistance and transferred him to hospital."
Whisanu was on Tuesday recovering at the Hospital Navamin 9 and is expected to be released without any long-term damage other than a nasty scar.
