Student suffers bee sting on his own penis in the name of science

A university student stung himself on the

genitals using a bee and it was all in the

name of science.

When Michael Smith started on his journey to

find out the worst place to be stung by a bee

he probably wasn't thinking it would be in his


But that's the conclusion he came to after

purposefully barbing himself in numerous

positions on his body, including his genitals.

Surprisingly that wasn't the most

uncomfortable place to be stung, the student

at Cornell University, in New York, said.

'We speculated it probably really would hurt to

get stung in the testicles. Two days later, by

chance, I did get stung there. It didn't hurt as

much as I expected it to,' he told the

Independent .

He chose a total of 25 places to be stung

around his body, with some hard to reach

areas requiring him to get creative.

He added: 'Some locations required the use of

a mirror and an erect posture during stinging

(e.g., the buttocks).'

Mr Smith's study was posted in scientific

journal PeerJ.
