Don’t try this at home: Impotent man inserted steel rod into penis almost dies after it shoots into bladder

A man who tried to improve his sex life by sticking a steel rod down his penis almost died when it shot into his bladder during intercourse.

Kang Niu, 52, inserted the 13-centimetre long steel rod into his penis after he began having problems getting an erection.

He told medics he felt this was the reason he was struggling to find and keep a girlfriend.
