Man ‘super glues’ hand to genitals

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Dr Matthew Valente has seen his share of sticky situations in his

years as a Chicago-based emergency room physician, but none were as

weird as the man who superglued his hand to his penis.

"The night before, the patient was fixing his lamp next to his bed and

he left the superglue tube on the nightstand," Valente explained on an

episode of Sex Sent Me To The E.R. on TLC.

The glue tube just happened to be next to a tube of lubrication he

kept on hand when he and his wife were in the mood for love.

Some time in the middle of the night, the unidentified male and his

wife decided to have sex and he reached for what he thought was the


"Only he went a little too fast, and voila! his hand became stuck to

his penis," Valente said.

It was a sight to behold, according to the good doctor.

"This was a large amount of skin that was affixed together," Valente

said. "There wasn't just a small amount of glue. It wasn't just one

finger. It was, in fact, his entire palm and all his fingers, which

were tightly affixed to his genitals."

The patient's wife was impatient for the man to get his hand off his

sex organs, so Dr Valente started researching ways to remove


The most popular suggestion was nail polish remover, a solution that

presented certain risks.

"The problem with that is when you dump acetone on top of a wound that

is partially open, it's incredibly painful," Valente said. "Just the

look in his eyes when I told him that, I could tell he didn't want to

go down that route."

Other options included applying hot, almost scalding water to the glue

or simply waiting for the outer layer of skin to fall off — a process

that might take two to three days.

Valente says the patient's wife wanted the quickest option possible

and didn't seem concerned about how her hubby might feel.

"She was more concerned about making the dinner than his level of

comfort or the fact that he's in excruciating pain because he

superglued his penis," Valente said.
