An Italian couple got stuck together during their sex escapade in the sea. They had to call the attention of a woman on the beach, who gave them a towel.
According to the report, the two were taken to a hospital emergency room, where the woman was given an injection usually used to dilate the uterus of pregnant women, in order to untangle them.
Dr John Dean, a senior UK-based sexual physician, said that getting stuck during sex is a rare phenomenon that doctors sometimes call “penis captivus” (captive penis).
“When the penis is in the vagina it becomes increasingly engorged,” he said, giving his hypothesis of what causes the problem.
“The muscles of the woman’s pelvic floor contract rhythmically at orgasm. While those muscles contract the penis becomes stuck and further engorged.”
Finally the vaginal muscles relax, the blood flows out of the penis and the man can withdraw.
