Former NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman claims he broke his penis not once but three times. In a short video for the Viceland show Party Legends, he describes in detail the incidents. One of which included running across a boat and launching his torpedo at his eager girlfriend’s beaver. Needless to say, there was apparently “blood everywhere.”
According to Mayo Clinic, it’s called a penile or penis fracture, and they occur when erect penises get torqued. They’re also relatively rare, so the fact that Rodman has experienced this injury three times is really impressive. Also, a broken penis requires medical attention.
The Mayo Clinic reports, “The injury can usually be diagnosed with a physical exam, and prompt surgical repair is typically recommended. Left untreated, a penis fracture might result in deformity of the penis or the permanent inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sex (erectile dysfunction).”
