Warning! Please do not bend!
The article, Ouch! Can You Really Break Your Penis? published in Scientific American warns that men who engage in bedroom acrobatics can seriously damage their tunica albuginea. Aiming for your target under momentum such as in a run and jump can result in penile fracture if you miss. This is indeed what happened to “this patient who suffered penile fracture after running across the room and trying to penetrate his wife with a flying leap.”
The tunica albuginea is a layer of connective tissue that surrounds each of the two tubes of corpora cavernosa and testis. The corpora cavernosa is the spongy tissue that engorges with blood causing an erection. Bending the penis suddenly under pressure can break the tunica albuginea causing bruising and needless to say, loss of erection.
