A 44-year-old Malaysian man, who embedded 10 ball bearings in his penis to enhance his sexual prowess, was forced to have them removed when he failed to get an erection for almost six months.
Upon removal, the man, known as Ramli, was shocked to find the tiny balls had become rusty.
He said he was inspired to embed the bearings through self-surgery after a friend, who claimed to have done it, boasted of his sexual stamina.
Ramli said he peeled off part of the skin with a knife and planted the ball bearings around the base of his penis.
“My private part swelled up for three days but I endured the pain and didn’t see a doctor,” he said. He claimed that it worked for a while and he satisfied many women after the wound healed.
Months later, he began to feel excruciating pain and sought help from a doctor, who advised him to surgically remove the bearings or be impotent for life.
