In a combination of heavy drama and comedy of errors, a 26-year-old Chinese man chopped off his penis on Monday because of desperation over having a zero love life.

Friends of Yang Hu said the depressed man was frustrated about his inability to find a woman who would love him, and thought because of this situation, his male organ had no more use, Main Online reported.

This led him to cut his penis, but upon realisation of his folly, biked to the nearest hospital for treatment. But it turned out he did not bring the severed private part and doctors ordered him to cycle back and retrieve the missing vital anatomical part.

However, when he got back to the hospital, Mr Yang was informed by doctors that it was too late because the chopped penis was without blood for too long and it was not impossible to reattach the organ.

Prior to the incident, Mr Yang spend long hours in a clothing factory in Jiaxing, Zhejiang province, which reduced the hours left for him to meet a woman. By cutting off his penis, he thought it would make him stop of thinking about having a girlfriend.

His friends criticised the hospital for not providing Mr Yang an ambulance to get his severed penis rather than asking him to bike back. The lost time pedaling could have save the poor man's manhood.

Penis-cutting incidents are often the result of couple conflict like the case of Lorena Bobbitt who cut husband John Wayne Bobbitt's organ.


Sometimes, it is a punishment for sexual crimes such as rape.


There are instances when it is the result of an accident such as what happened to this young eunuch.


However, there are also cases when the chopping is initiated by the man himself, although in cases like Mr Yang and this man on the next video, the person involved is often in a disturbed mental state.
