A raunchy sex session ended in bloodshed when a woman ripped her boyfriend’s penis because she was distracted by the X Factor’s live results.
Emma Pearce, 34, and her fiance Allan Blake, 28, were getting hot and steamy in the living room when she jolted trying to glimpse the talent show – ripping a tag of skin on his manhood in the process.
Carer Emma, of St Austell, Cornwall, said: “Next thing I knew, there was blood everywhere.”
Worried about Allan – and her cream carpets – Emma took him to the bathroom, where she dialled the NHS 111 non-emergency number for advice.
Asked by the operator to rate his pain on a scale of one to 10, Allan, who cannot work because of ill health, replied: “What on earth do you think?”
He was advised to take painkillers and wrap his penis in a flannel to help with the swelling.
Two days later, the hapless pair visited the GP, where Allan was told he had torn his frenulum, or banjo string – a tag of skin between the foreskin and the shaft.
He was assured everything would heal naturally, although the doctor warned that he is now at risk of it happening again.
“We were told not to have sex again until it had healed, which ended up taking about a month,” recalled Emma.
“Allan joked to the doctor, ‘I don’t want her to come near me anyway after this.’
“We both saw the funny side. I was laughing in the doctor’s and making jokes about the movie Teeth, which is about a girl who has teeth in her vagina.”
Now able to laugh about the incident, their relationship is stronger than ever and they have even welcomed a little boy.
Emma said: “We do worry that it’ll happen again, but we laugh about it all the time.
“I still watch the X Factor religiously, too – and now Allan knows better than to distract me.”
