Can you break your penis?

Posted on . In So weird


Yes. That you can for sure. It's a misconception to think that a penis can't break because it has no bone. An erect penis can break when having - too wild - sex. One wrong move and it bends too far with a cracking sound. One option: straight to the ER, so former basketball star Dennis Rodman experienced.

The American sports hero broke his penis as many as three times and in the Viceland show Party Legends he tells in three separate stories about how he broke his dick.

How does a penis break?

It’s actually called a penile contusion and occurs in an erect penis when a membrane called the tunica albuginea, tears. It can also effect the tubes inside the penis and/or the urethra.

Symptoms of a broken penis:

  • A crackling sound
  • Losing the erection
  • Blue and swollen penis
  • Blood and bruises
  • Curved shape
  • Lots and lots of pain


Go straight to the ER. If you wait too long, in the long term you can have problems with your erection such as no erection at all or very painful erections ones.

For Dennis Rodman breaking his penis was not only a painful but also weird experience. In his film he tells that at the third time he broke his penis as many as eight people came to take a look at his genitals.
