A 55-year-old man in Russia had part of his penis amputated after a lover had bitten off his manhood during a threesome. The incident was reported to have happened on April 22 in the village of Babyakovo in the Russian region of Voronezh Oblast.

According to Daily Star, the man is said to have engaged in a polyamorous sexual romp with three women at the same time when one of the women bit his penis. Not being bothered at all by the injury, he continued to have sexual intercourse. 

However, the man did not seek medical attention after his genital injury as it appeared the bite had caused his penis to swell when infection set in. According to reports, he liked the fact that his genitals appeared to look larger in size and initially pleased him during sex despite the pain.

His penis continued to get swollen with infection and the increasing pain started to become unbearable.  The man finally checked into a hospital where attending doctors found the infection had turned worse and left them no choice but to amputate part of his penis. 

Medical workers found the teeth marks on his genitals leading them to believe the man was a victim of abuse and contacted the police.

However the patient explained that he felt the issue did not need police involvement nor any legal action taken because he enjoyed how the injury had enlarged his penis. 

Local sources said authorities still launched an investigation into the incident but no further details have been made available. No other information or reports were provided on the current status of the man.

The main question however is when a penis would require amputation. Any form of infection on the body can cause blood to turn toxic and cause fatal sepsis.

According to the Sepsis Alliance, the decision to amputate is based on how much tissue needs to be removed to make sure all the damaged tissue is gone. Much of the procedure depends on the condition of the muscles and the skin of the patient.

The Amputee Coalition records show there are approximately 2 million people in the US living with some form of amputation with about 185,000 amputations done each year. An average of about 38 amputations a day are due to sepsis.

Penis cancer is also another cause for penile amputation however rare this disease may be, it affects one in 100,000 men in North America and Europe according to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Treatment depends on the size of the affected cancerous area or is based on the size of the tumor. Surgery is a treatment option whereby this will involve removal of cancerous cells along with surrounding tissue. In advanced cancer stages, the patient may need to have his entire penis removed.
