A new study found that cheating may make a man more likely to suffer from penile fractures. Researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center looked at guys who "broke" their penises (it's not actually a break, it's a rupturing of one of the tubelike chambers in his junk) and found that the majority were having extramarital affairs at the time.

Also of note: Most of the victims were having sex in unusual places, such as bathrooms or the workplace, when the breakage occurred.

To the lead researcher, urologist Andrew Kramer, M.D., it made sense that cheating and strange locales led to a greater risk of a wounded wang (our words, not his). "In such atypical situations, sex may be rushed and involve unusual or awkward sexual positions," he told myhealthnewsdaily.com.

OK, so the study only looked at 16 men. But we're sort of happy to hear that it's difficult to find subjects for such a study. And while we normally say that such a small-scale study requires more research to be conclusive, we're totally fine with you telling your guy that cheating has been scientifically and absolutely linked to a broken penis.
Of course, faithful men break their penises too-though this study argues it's less common. According to the Mayo Clinic, it can happen to anyone-even someone who's simply having sex with himself. The site explains that a penile fracture is "usually related to aggressive or acrobatic sexual intercourse or, in some cases, aggressive masturbation". If your guy suffers from breakage, he should seek medical attention immediately. Yes, it's embarrassing, but the alternative could be much worse: severe curvature, trouble peeing, and erectile dysfunction.
Have you ever been hooking up with a guy when his penis broke? Have you ever heard of it happening? Are you surprised that cheaters are more likely to suffer from a broken penis?
