Oh hello there, concerned late-night internet searchers who stumbled on this post. The good news: it's fixable. The bad news: it requires a doctor and several painful penis injections. The worst news: the success rate is only 60%.

TLC's latest episode of "Strange Sex" follows a man who suffers from Peyronie's disease, a fibrous scar tissue build-up that causes extreme curvature of the forget-me-not. It's an unfortunate condition found in a small percentage of men over 50.

In Sunday night's episode, we'll meet a brave man named John whose Twizzler is stuck at a 25 degree angle. "When the doctor recommended injections I had to ask the question, where am I being injected and she said directly in your penis and I said, well what else can we do?" explains John, who conducted an interview for the series in front of an appropriately flaming hot fire-engine red background.

When he discovered his only other option was surgery, he underwent the 12 brutal verapramil injections to reduce the "plaque" build-up causing the curvature. You'll have to watch the episode, titled "Crooked" (oh no they didn't), to find out if the painful treatment worked. In the meantime, you can watch John getting his first injection here and accept the fact that you're not going to be falling asleep tonight.
