A bored Thai man stuck at home during the pandemic was rushed to hospital after getting a padlock stuck around his penis in a bizarre sex act gone wrong.

The bachelor, 38, clamped the metal device around the base of his manhood for a thrill around two weeks ago but he lost the key and his limb started to swell.

He tried unsuccessfully to remove the small lock so left it on his penis for more than 14 days until it became infected and the pain was unbearable.

The embarrassed man’s mother – who tried to help him – called the emergency services and firemen went to his home in Bangkok, Thailand, on Thursday night (July 16).

She told medics that her son did not have a girlfriend and was ‘bored’ because he had been staying at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.

She said: ‘My son is a private person and he doesn’t have a girlfriend. He has been staying at home a lot during the pandemic because he is worried about going out.

‘He told me he did this because he was bored and he likes putting his ‘thing’ through small holes. I was angry at him for embarrassing me like this and I’ve told him not to do it again.’

Rescue officer Thongchai Donson said they received the emergency call but the injury was ‘worse than they expected’ and had to rush the man, who they would not name, to the nearest hospital.

Medics spent more than 30 minutes using an electric cutter to slice through the metal lock. They slid a thin sheet of metal between the bar and the man’s skin to prevent it from being cut and squirted water onto his body for lubrication. 

Once it was released, they administered antibiotic cream and gave the man penicillin tablets.

Despite his penis now being released, medics said there could be lasting damage because of the amount of time the padlock was stuck. His penis has also been disfigured by the ordeal.

Thongchai added: ‘We received the emergency call and did not know the full details, so we were surprised when we arrived. It was worse than we thought. If the padlock had stayed on for any longer, the infection could have been so bad that his penis would have started to rot and get gangrene.

‘In the hospital he was in pain and screaming so loudly because it was so swollen. Removing the metal was very difficult.

‘We can’t give the man’s name but we want to make the news public to prevent other people from doing this kind of thing. It can be very dangerous and damage the body.’
