Penile Burn from Electric Fence

‘Although tales about men suffering severe burns to their genitalia (or even being electrocuted) through urinating on electric fences or electrified train rails are common in urban legendry, such occurrences are exceeding unlikely (if not outright impossible). Accordingly, the story accompanying the photograph reproduced above about a “Texas redneck” who met with an unfortunate injury after drinking too much and then “peeing on a 3-phase electric fence” — is a fanciful invention that has nothing to do with the picture’s actual origins.

This image accompanied an article authored by five Chinese doctors (from the Department of Urology at the Third Military Medical University in Chongqing) and published in the Asian Journal of Andrology, a case report from 2003 about a 38-year-old man who sought medical attention at a clinic for genital herpes simplex. A circumcision was performed and the patient was treated with short-wave diathermy that proved excessive, producing a severe burn to the penis that resulted in necrosis and gangrene.’
