Penis Ring Emergency – German Fire Fighters Rescue Man From Painful 13 Cock Ring Torture

Penis Ring Emergency – German Fire Fighters Rescue Man From Painful 13 Cock Ring Torture: Vorsprung durch Technik and erectile dysfunction are not often mentioned together but due to the heroic efforts of the German fire brigade they both feature in today’s article about the risks inherent when applying metal rings to certain parts of the male anatomy.

Yesterday (Tuesday 8th March 2016) at 13:15 a hospital in Germany had to call in the local fire fighters with their specialised technology and expertise to help with a particularly sensitive problem faced by a 52 year old man – or to be more precise his penis.

Let me fist provide you with some medical context. Sometimes when men suffer with erectile dysfunction they may consider using an implement known as a penis or cock ring. Erectile dysfunction refers to the inability of one’s penis to inflate with blood and stay inflated – it is a complaint that mainly affects men. By applying the ring to a gentleman’s appendage it is possible to reduce the flow of blood out of the appendage and thus maintain an erect state longer than might otherwise be possible.

A person with erectile dysfunction, perhaps due to a nerve or vascular damage, may be able to use a special vacuum pump attached to the end of his penis to create an erection. A ring then slips off the pump onto the base of the penis to help maintain the erectile state so that the person can participate in sexual intercourse.

Sometimes these rings are used by people who do not have this medical problem and it is suspected that the man in the German hospital accident and emergency department wearing 13 penis rings may fall into this category. It appears that he had already been wearing his penis rings for four days – the pain had become so unbearable that he decided he needed medical assistance. The hospital could not remove the rings. This is where the fire fighting professionals with their specialised grinding equipment were able to help.

As with any medical device there can be risks associated with the use of a cock ring. Generally the suppliers of these implements, as well as knowledgeable medical sources, indicate they should not be worn for more than 30 minutes. In particular care should be taken not to fall asleep while wearing the device – this can lead to temporary or permanent nerve damage. Illicit drug taking with the device is also dangerous. Penis rings should be removed at the first sign of problems (e.g. penile numbness, coldness or paleness).

If worn for too long the ring can lead to priapism in which the penis does not return to its flaccid (‘non-inflated’) state within an appropriate amount of time. This is a medical emergency situation and can lead to permanent damage including, in severe cases, gangrene. Gangrene can destroy the penis and may require for it to be amputated.

Fortunately the German fire fighters were able to remove the man’s 13 penis rings using their specialised equipment and training. Apparently cock ring removal is not an infrequent occurrence but it is very rare to have to deal with 13 rings all on the same appendage. Following their removal the medical staff at the hospital were able to administer further treatment to the patient.

I did a check to find out how these emergency fire fighters train for these sensitive incidents. Clearly it is rather difficult to train on live people for risk of any accidental slippage of the grinding equipment. To address this German teams have come up with a solution which I suspect could only have been devised in the land that claims to have invented the sausage. If you would like to see the team from the Osnabrück fire brigade during their Penis Ring Removal Training Exercise take a look at the report from NDR below (if you can’t read the German just click on the video – it is pretty self explanatory):

I hope you found this article useful and perhaps educational. If you do use penis rings please take care to follow the supplier’s instructions and as always, if in doubt, seek professional medical advice. If you do get stuck – Germany’s not a bad place to get stuck in.
