LOS ANGELES -- A California man who tried an at-home attempt at lengthening his penis almost lost it instead.
According to a CNN report, the Costa Mesa man used a dumbbell gym weight and got stuck for three days.
The fire department was called to the emergency room and the only way to get the weight off the man's penis was to saw it off. It took about two hours, but crews were able to keep the man's organ intact.
A sex therapist in the area says the bizarre incident shows how all the products and advertisements that promise to make a penis grow can trigger someone to act extreme.
One woman who was told about the incident reacted by saying, "Do not put your weiner in a dumbbell. Probably not the brightest idea."
