2. Penises can break. “It’s called a penile fracture. You would think of a bone fracturing because that’s what most fractures are described as, but the fracture in the penis comes from the fibrous tissue of the penis essentially developing a rip or a tear in it,” says Dr. Brucker. Because we all know the penis is not a bone or a muscle, but an organ, right?! Right! “Sometimes in medical textbooks they’ll call [a broken penis] an ‘eggplant deformity’ or an ‘eggplant’ because it will actually turn purple, bruised, and take on that shape of an eggplant.” Every man reading this just swore off eating eggplants forever.
