On June 20, the man went to The General Hospital of Shenyang Miltary Region where doctors spent an hour and a half removing the sewing needles from the narrowest part of his manhood, according to Daily Mail.

The sewing needles ranged in length from 1.96 inches to 3.94 inches.

The man explained to the doctors that he had been sticking the sharp objects into his private parts for about a year. He would stick the needles in with the pinhead up. While doing so, the man said that he did not feel any pain at the time he inserted the objects.

The purpose behind doing so was to experience a particular sensation during sex.

The urologist who was involved in the operation, Dr. Cao Zhiqiang, explained that the x-rays showed that the needles were in the membranous urethra, which is the most narrow part of the male urethra.

In order to examine the urinary tract, chief urologist Dr. Liu Long used an uteroscope. The needles were removed from the man's penis by taking them out bit by bit.

"The operation was about an hour and a half long. I am sweating and my hands are trembling when it's over. This is not an easy one," urologist Dr. Cao Zhiqiang said. "There are scholars explaining this scenario as one of the peculiar sex similar to Sadomasochism and foot fetishes. Patients are looking for excitement through unusual ways."


The doctor also warned against people who fascinate about doing so should proceed with caution as it can cause serious issues with the urinary tract. He says that there are now "special toys" for patients who derive pleasure in this way.

"These specially made tools are not only more hygienic, they are also safer to insert - and most importantly can be removed," Dr. Cao said.
