    Default Don't freak out at the headline

    So you don't get that deep feeling of dread in your gut when you read this, I'll provide this quote first:

    "Remarkably, the teenager was discharged from the hospital the following day with a course of antibiotics. During a 4-week follow-up appointment, he reported having normal sensation in the area and experienced no problems peeing."

    Still, you might want to skip reading it if you are squeamish, because, whoa. You've been warned.

    When I used to do mountain bike races, there was always a pre-race inspection to ensure that all bikes had bar plugs. It was taken seriously for this reason.

    Sorry to say, but it could have been worse. A kid died this year from an exposed bar end.

    I broke a rib once from a bar end ramming into me.

    They also write that the majority of penile degloving injuries are the result of dog attacks, industrial machine accidents, and “sexual misadventure.”
    Okay, I've had some kinky sex in my time, but I'm still mystified as to how you could remove all the skin off the penis during any kind of sex.

    Yeah, I know, this was probably "sex" with a vacuum cleaner or industrial machinery. But the wording was... odd.

    How about "degloving?" That's pretty good wording, doncha think?
