Another Broken Penis

There hasn’t been much penis news lately, but this sounds pretty serious. And it’s being reported in a lot of places.

Steven Horden, 37, from Gillingham, Kent, was having sex with girlfriend Kiera Diss, 38, when his penis ‘snapped in half’.

The poor guy had a four day hospital stay as a result.

Art: Subverting the Erect Penis
This isn’t your average penis news, and I’m not going to even try to parse it because I know I’ll get it wrong. And I don’t want to do that because I do think things like this put an interesting spin on the way we all relate and communicate through various forms of art. You have to look at this from and artistic POV. It’s an interview with a transgender artist/activist named niv Acosta.
Among your other ongoing projects are the Limp Phalluses and the Dickscape: Denim Couches series. Do you also see these as a subversion of dick culture?

Let’s talk about the subversion of the dick form. Let’s talk how the predominant image of a penis is an erect penis. A limp penis is very much one that carries a lot of femininity and is therefore tied to shame and pain. When I built those I was in a moment when I was thinking about packing because I thought maybe it would affirm my gender in a way that I hadn’t felt that I had present in my life yet, so I started looking into how to pack. 

You can read it all here in full. There are some interesting points made. One thing they mention is the closing of gay bars all over the world.

What Do Penis Pumps Do?

Here’s an article that challenges the theory that penis pumps actually enlarge penises. And, that medicare doesn’t cover them any longer. Admittedly, I don’t know much about this one either.

“The size change is temporary,” writes Carol Queen in The Sex & Pleasure Book. She explains that while using a pump on any part of the body will cause the area to swell, the member will return to its normal state once the device is removed. “Though some believe pumps will permanently increase penis size, research has shown that they offer minor effects at best.” She adds, “If you are unhappy with your size, a pump is not the way to go.”

There’s more here. Of course not everyone agrees, but it’s interesting to note that the penis pump was designed by a guy named John King way back in 1874.
