The prisoner, who has not been named, was found by prison wardens with serious injuries and taken to hospital.

Paramedics from the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust were called to the jail at around 10am last Friday, after reports a man in his 40s had suffered serious injuries.

A spokesman for the trust said it had received a report from the prison that the man had serious bleeding, and that he might be unconscious.

After they arrived at the scene, paramedics worked to stem the bleeding before taking the man to Southmead Hospital, where he received treatment.

A spokesman for the Prison Service said the injury was self-inflicted and that no other prisoners were involved…

The Boys Who Only Develop A Penis When They Hit Puberty

9 month old fetus
5-alpha-reductase deficiency is a condition in which infants and children appear to be female until they reach puberty. At puberty, “they develop muscles, their chests start to grow, and by the age of 12, they sprout testes and a penis.”

Josh L Davis via IFL Science:

When born, to all intents and purposes they appear to be female. But when the children referred to as “Guevedoces” in an isolated village in the Dominican Republic reach puberty, things start to change. They develop muscles, their chests start to grow, and by the age of 12, they sprout testes and a penis.

In the first eight weeks of development, fetuses are neither male nor female. After this period, if the fetus is genetically male, then the internal glands known as gonads are instructed by the Y chromosome to turn into testes. At the same time, testosterone is sent to a particular structure called the tubercle.

Things Are Hard For Man With World’s Largest Penis

X-ray of the man’s Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, 52, penis

Ross Logan via The Mirror:

A man who claims he has the world’s largest penis says women are too scared to have sex with him.

Super-endowed Roberto Esquivel Cabrera also claims his manhood is actually a disability that leaves him unable to work.

Not only that, but the 52-year-old’s 18.9in member is so long that ladies are afraid of it.

The member hangs well below his knees and he wants his ‘gift’ to be recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.

But he also wants to be registered as disabled because he says his giant penis gets in the way and he is not able to hold down a proper job.

South African Doctors Perform First Successful Penis Transplant

The team at Stellenbosch University. 

A medical team in South Africa has successfully performed a penis transplant. And, yes, it is fully function.

The patient, a 21-year-old whose name is being withheld for ethical reasons, underwent the procedure on December 11, 2014. Three months later, his new member is now completely functional.

“Our goal was that he would be fully functional at two years and we are very surprised by his rapid recovery,” says Prof André van der Merwe, head of Stellenbosch University’s Division of Urology.

This is a very important breakthrough for the medical community around the world, but especially so in South Africa. In SA, many young men lose their penises from botched circumcisions. The 21-year-old patient’s penis had to be amputated three years ago when he developed severe complications. It is estimated that there as many as 250 amputations a year in South Africa. Understandably, this can cause psychological damage to the amputees.… Read the rest

Tom Ford’s Phallus Shaped Crucifix Necklace Released in Time for Christmas; Outraged Christians Blast ‘Sick’ Pendant

Surely designer crucidicks are on your Christmas wish list? Or not, perhaps, if you are one of the outraged Christians protesting the new Tom Ford penis pendant, as reported by Christian Post:

Flamboyant fashion designer Tom Ford sparked outrage recently following the launch of his new collection of phallic crucifix necklaces.

The pendant is shaped like a phallus and resembles a crucifix. Outraged Christians have blasted the unusual jewelry as “blasphemous,” with some even calling it an attack on Christianity.

The necklace is available in either silver or 18-karat white gold, according to Ford’s website, and it comes in small, medium and large sizes. It is priced at $790 and has come just in time for Christmas, which has fueled even more outrage.

“This, ladies and gents, is the epitome of blasphemy against Christ Jesus,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Just in time for Christmas, a way to say “screw Christ,” the Savior of the World.

Are Condoms As We Know Them a Way of the Past?

via The Daily Beast:

There are only so many ways to wrap a penis in plastic, but that hasn’t stopped a new crop of prophylactic engineers from trying to exhaust them all.

Condoms remain one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and yet, according to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior conducted by Indiana University, only 1 in 3 acts of vaginal intercourse among single people in the U.S. are protected by a condom. In their early teens, the survey found, men use condoms 80 percent of the time but by age 18, their condom use falls below 50 percent.

Why is such a simple countermeasure against headache and disease still so unpopular? And what can be done to make the humble condom more appealing? That was the question the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation asked last year, when they put out a call to inventors, asking them to build better, more affordable, but mostly more pleasurable condoms.

The Holy Prepuce

Григорий Распутин (1914-1916).jpg

Grigori Rasputin

I just don’t know how to introduce an essay about Christ’s foreskin, known as the Holy Prepuce, so take it away Stassa Edwards at The New Inquiry:

Europe’s history of penis worship was cast aside when the Catholic Church decided Jesus’s foreskin was too potent to control.

Grigori Rasputin’s dick is on display at the Museum of Erotics in Saint Petersburg. Housed in a jar of formaldehyde, the member, which the museum’s owner claims he obtained from a French antiquarian, is quite sizable. Actually, it’s enormous for a human penis: Wide and meaty, it measures about a foot long. According to the museum, just gazing on the preserved member can cure a range of problems, everything from infertility to a humdrum sex life. But the specimen isn’t a human penis. It more than likely came from a horse.

It wouldn’t be the first time something inhuman was passed off as Rasputin’s dick.

Scientists: The Bigger the Meat, The More Likely She’ll Cheat

Well, they didn’t exactly put it that way, but…

Via Huffington Post:

Contrary to popular belief, a new study out of Kenya found that husbands with larger penises were more likely to be cheated on by their wives (shocking, we know).

For the study — published this month in PLOSOne — researchers interviewed 545 married couples in Kenya in order to better understand their relationship habits and, more specifically, to identify factors which contributed to women having extramarital affairs.

Researchers asked both partners to self-report the male’s erect penis size (they had a 15 inch ruler on hand for reference). Then, if there were differences between the estimates (which there were), they either took the average of the two or went with the estimate from the partner who was less likely to fib.

What they found was rather shocking:

“Every one inch longer penis increased the likelihood of women being involved in extra-marital partnership by almost one-and-half times,” the researchers wrote.
