A Pattaya hospital called upon the Swang Borriboon Rescue Team to bring a steel-cutting tool to aid 52-year-old Swiss man named Urs. ThaiRath reported that Urs appeared pale and experienced intense pain due to the tight steel ring.
The rescue team reported that the steel ring had a diameter of about six to seven centimeters and had been worn around Urs' genitals. After a careful two-hour operation, the rescuers successfully cut and removed the ring. The media did not disclose the condition of his "crown jewels" after the incident.
Urs did not provide any specific information about his intentions behind wearing the ring. However, the rescuers speculated that he may have believed it could enhance his sexual pleasure.
The rescuers noted that this wasn't the first time they encountered individuals attempting to heighten their sexual pleasure through such means. Some people believe that wearing a steel ring around their genitalia can enlarge the organ. The rescuers issued a warning against such practices, emphasizing the potential harm it could cause.
A similar case occurred in June with a Burmese man in Thailand. He sought medical treatment after trapping his penis in a steel ring for a week, resulting in discoloration and swelling. The man admitted to using the ring to increase the size of his genitalia, but it proved to be nothing more than a myth.
Medical professionals also cautioned against injecting random medicines into the penis, as it could lead to severe side effects.
