One unfortunate occupational hazard of being an ER doctor is learning way more than you want to about the sexual practices of your fellow citizens. This may give us a skewed perspective on what most people enjoy doing in their spare time, but it also keeps the job fascinating. A young man presented to the ER one day with lower abdominal pain and cloudy urine. Urine testing confirmed an infection in the bladder, but he was quite uncomfortable, so an Xray was done as well. This showed very strange, wispy coils of material in the location of the bladder that baffled the radiologist. “Clinical correlation is needed.” said the radiologist, which is what they say when they have no idea what they are looking at, so you better go talk to the patient again.
The ER doctor went right back to the patient and asked him why he might have strange material floating around in his bladder.
“Well, I suppose it could be the snakes I’ve been putting in my penis.” said the patient.
Apparently, there are tiny baby snakes that fit right inside the urethra, and can make it all the way into the bladder. It’s hard to imagine this being a pleasurable sensation, but evidently this patient thought so.
