A 28-year-old South African man who tried using a wedding ring as a cock ring wound up having his mom take him to the hospital after his penis swelled up and turned blue.
According to reports of the incident, which made its way into the November edition of the South African Medical Journal, the unnamed man squeezed the wedding ring onto his manhood for "erotic reasons," but things quickly went downhill. Four hours later, the guy had his mom take him to a hospital in Limpopo, where doctors diagnosed him with a painful case of "penile strangulation."
At first, the doctors tried removing the makeshift cock ring with a tiny surgical saw, but that didn't work — apparently the swelling made it difficult to cut through the ring without also potentially cutting his genitals.
Next, the doctors punctured his penis multiple times with a syringe in order to reduce the swelling, which did the trick. He was given some antibiotics and pain killers for his troubles and eventually sent on his way. In the future, he should probably just follow Ronnie Mund's lead and use a real cock ring for his personal pleasure.
