The BBC reports on the medical concern of the year.
The BBC reported on a study by a doctor in Switzerland. He had analysed 11 years of admissions, and concluded that the notion of copulating couples getting stuck together was an urban myth.
But after running an interview with him on the radio, two listeners rang in to dispute his findings.
Dr John Dean, a senior UK-based sexual physician, told the BBC both reports were credible examples of "penis captivus."
According to Dr Dean, the problem is caused by the penis becoming engorged and trapped by woman's pelvic floor muscles when they contract at orgasm.
The BBC cites a number of case studies throughout history which suggest this might be a real problem.
According to Dr Dean, most cases only last a few seconds.
