A man has cut off his own testicles after his wife refused his advances, reasoning that without them he could not be tempted into adultery by sexual frustration.
The 40-year-old Colombian farmer describes how his experience gelding farm animals led him to try the procedure on himself:
“I’ve castrated pigs, cats, dogs and three days later they are healed.
I thought that’s what it was going to be like with me. I had practice with animals, so I went ahead, put some pressure on it, and cut them to remove them by force!
When I saw that I could no longer count on her (his wife), so that I wouldn’t keep bothering her, I made the decision to cut my testicles off because I am a Christian and did not want to go look for another (partner).”
Doctors report he did a thorough job, having completely lost his testicles, but that the wound has become infected.
