A 37-year-old bricklayer from Gillingham in Kent had to get emergency treatment after his penis 'snapped in half' during a particularly vigorous sex session. Steven Horden and his girlfriend were trying for a baby when his penis broke mid-intercourse, leaving him in agonising pain.

The bricklayer was rushed to Medway Hospital with a severely bent and very bloodied penis following the incident. He had to stay in for four nights in order to receive treatment to correct the damage. He also had to undergo a circumcision in order for a catheter to be fitted.

Steven has been left concerned that he may not be able to have the much longed-for baby with his girlfriend Kiera. He is currently unable to engage in intercourse and has been left with severe bruising, which is very painful.

Talking about his injuries, Steven said: "It’s nasty. The whole penis is bruised and bent and horrible. We were doing doggy style. It was a little bit too frantic. I think we overdid a little.

"The doctors told me that only time will tell if I can still have children."

Despite being told that they are not to try and have sex for six weeks, the couple admitted that they did try early, but were unsuccessful as Steven was in too much pain.

His girlfriend Kiera said: "Steve was in a lot of pain. I was in shock, I never imagined something like this would happen.

"I feel a bit guilty as I think it was my thrusting backwards that was half the cause of it.

"But I stuck by him, helped him clean up, use the toilet, I’ve been there all the way."

The couple is now hoping that the damage heals and that it doesn't affect Steven's ability to have children as they have spent six months attempting to get pregnant.
