Don't let your ~boner~ fool you — there are no bones in the penis. There are, however, two tubes of spongy tissue (called the corpus cavernosa) that fill up with blood during an erection, making the penis hard, Shusterman says. These tubes aren't meant to be bent when they're filled up, but sometimes — usually during drunk or rough sex — the penis doesn't go ~in~ the way it's supposed to, Cohen says. So let's say your partner is riding you from on top, and on their way down, they don't have the angle jussst right. Then suddenly you hear a pop or snap and realize your penis missed the hole, got bent, and WTF THAT WAS PAINFUL! Congratulations, you just fractured your penis. 🎉🎉🎉
"There are those [fractures] where you actually break the inner parts of the penis, and then there are the fractures that are less serious, where you sort of pop a vein and get a black-and-blue mark," Cohen says. Either way, if you hear something like this, it's a good idea to stop having sex and look into getting medical care immediately, he says, because a fractured penis can cause lifelong damage, including ED.
