Creepy Tales of Pleasure Fails from the ER

Diary 1 Comment

When pleasure goes wrong and you end up in the ER.

Anyone who has read Guts by Chuck Palahniuk knows that things can end very badly when we don’t carefully consider the risks of exercising our proclivities. But just in case you didn’t get the lesson (or you fainted during one of Palahniuk’s infamous readings of the story), we have some more gruesome tales for you, fresh from ER gossips around the country.

The Strange Case of the Missing Hot Dog

Adolescent girl comes into the ER complaining of vaginal discharge and odor. Symptoms have been occurring for over a month. The doctor examines her and finds one half of a rotting, moldy hot dog. The girl admitted to masturbating with a hot dog over two months prior, and thought it might have broken upon removal, but she was too embarrassed to say anything.

The doctor removed the offending hot dog. The girl recovered without further incident.

Lesson: do not masturbate with hot dogs. What the hell, people?

Beer Bottles Suck — Literally

Guy shows up in the ER, sitting on his side in obvious agony. Nurse asks for presenting complaint. Answer: “Something is stuck up my ass.” Taken to the examining room, the patient rolls over to reveal a beer bottle stuck in his anus.

The problem was that upon attempting to remove the bottle, it created suction and the tissue got caught. Then the bottle cracked. He required major surgery to remove the bottle and multiple stitches for the lacerations.

Lesson: bottles create suction. Don’t be a moron.

The Great Cocaine on the Dick Myth

It’s said that cocaine applied to the base of the penis can prolong an erection. Some yahoo decided to test this theory after snorting a few lines himself. He got hard and liberally applied coke around his erect penis. He had sex. And more sex. And more sex. According to what he told the doctors, he had sex for about three days, but we can’t know for certain, as his mind wasn’t exactly the clearest.

At the end of however long it was, his dick had still not gone down, so he gave up and went to the ER, panic settling in. When brutal treatments to attempt to evacuate the blood from his still hard and very purple member, he had surgery to release the blood from the corpus cavernosum to the corpus spongiosum, which are places in the penis you would know about if you’d paid any attention in anatomy and physiology.

Anyway, this is a last resort, which could result in preventing a man from having natural orgasms for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, he had waited too long to seek treatment and he ended up losing his penis entirely.

Lesson: be careful with that stuff. And remember, if the erection lasts more than four hours, haul ass to the ER.

All They Need Is Moisture and Warmth

Another girl presented to the ER with vaginal discharge and odor. Upon examination, doctors discovered a sprouting avocado seed. We wish we were kidding.

Lesson: stuff can grow in there. Don’t let it. Hello! A seed? Other stuff commonly lost in cavities: dolls, golf balls, racquetballs, corn cobs. Don’t do it. Just don’t. They have toys for this. Toys are awesome. Please use toys.

So there you have it. Insanity of pleasure. Be good to yourself. You want to keep getting off for a long time, don’t you? Think things through. Don’t be hasty. Don’t be stupid. And if you are, don’t be embarrassed to seek medical attention immediately. They’ve seen it all. Trust us.

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
