Someone else mentioned this the other day.. this was in a UK paper yesterday, apparantly his wife had left him so he chopped off his huje and jaja after drinking a bottle of vodka. I was just wondering if this is normal behaviour in Poland? :)

Deafening silence

I heard of something similar in Wales, but that was because Wales won a rugby match and the fan did it as an expression of joy

yes,
it is:). My father did it, my brother -in-law did it. All my schoolmates did it, becuse they had this desire to sing in a choir:)

My father did it

I assume it was after you were conceived then? Still as long as they had good voices I guess it was worth it.

Did they all want to be members of the Vienna Boys Choir?:)

you are right.. found this in the news:
Rugby fan tells how he lost his tackle

A Welsh rugby fan has spoken out about how he hacked off his own testicles after his team beat England.
Geoffrey Huish, 31, took an agonising ten minutes to perform the op using a pair of blunt wire cutters, says the Sun.
Then he put his severed parts in a blue plastic bag and staggered to a social club to tell fellow Wales fans what he'd done.

Jobless Geoffrey finally collapsed with blood pouring from his groin as horrified drinkers put his testicles in a pint glass of ice.
They were handed to paramedics who rushed him to hospital - but surgeons could not sew them back.

Geoffrey, of Senghenydd, spent several months in a psychiatric unit as experts tried to fathom his actions.

He said: “I’d told my pal Gethin Probert before the game that Wales didn’t stand a chance. It wasn’t a bet, but I said I’d cut my balls off if we won...

“So I started hacking away at my tackle. It took about ten minutes and there was quite a lot of pain — but I just kept going.

“The cutters were blunt so I had to keep snipping. I cut my penis as well. There was a lot of blood but not as much as you would expect.”

He added: “I think about what happened every day and still haven’t come up with a good reason why. I’d had a lot going on and felt a bit down. I can’t have kids now, but still want a family. Maybe I’ll adopt.”

yeah he was definitely nuts alright.. I heard the Polish guy was too late to save his tackle..you would have thought that mountain climate would have kept them fresh for a while! Poor sod. Wonder if anyone has ever done any research into how common this is?

Yes, it was on Polish TV. The guy had 6 hours to be able to sew it back on, but the ambulance didn't make it in time, since there was only one hospital that would do it.

There was a woman in the US who cut her husband's love muscle off because he was cheating on her. His name was Bobbit. So now people are afraid to get Bobbitized.

sorry dont understand what that means (circumcised?). John Bobbit became a porn star later didnt he? (he had a penile extension at the same time as having his tackle reattached). Still its a bit madder to cut them off yourself. Wondering if I have an unhealthy interest in this subject? maybe my bf needs to start worrying :)

No, not that. Just don't want to be without one. As a joke.
And it's not common to do it anywhere, as it hurts like he^^!!!

ok.. yeah I can imagine its not pleasant.. have always felt sorry for animals that have to be castrated. I have witnessed horses and bulls being castrated with those metal clamps and they didnt look too happy later. :(

I had a Welsh friend who regularly cut off testicles.
She was a sheep farmer.
Not joking either.
Made me nervous.

OK you may be wondering why Im reviving this thread..well I read in the paper yesterday that a Polish guy living here in London went into a restaurant on Sunday, grabbed a knife and jumped on a table and chopped off his huje.. in full view of other diners.. apparantly drs have now reattached it.. but it just makes me wonder WHY???? I know its not only Poles who do this, so perhaps its just these ones Im noticing.

DOCTORS at St. Thomas's Hospital have failed in their bid to re-attach a man's penis after he chopped it off at a nearby London restaurant.

The man rushed into the kitchen of Zizzi resataurant on The Strand on Sunday evening, grabbed a knife and sliced off his penis.

"This happened in a matter of seconds and was obviously extremely frightening and distressing for the many customers and staff in the restaurant at the time," said a spokesperson for Zizzi.

"Everyone was screaming and running out as he jumped on a table, dropped his trousers and popped his penis out. Then he cut it off. I couldn't believe it," said a witness quoted in The Sun.

So far police have not identified the man, or his motive, but it might not be a coincidence that in French, 'zizi' means 'willy'.
