THE trend for men wearing woven elastic bands around the penis is affecting male health, experts have warned.
Loom penis rings is a craft craze among men aged 18-54 where a loop of eye-catching elastic bands is worn around the base of the reproductive organ.
41-year-old Roy Hobbs said: All the guys at work are into loom cock bands because they look so pretty and awesome. Its an expression of individuality and you can swap them with friends.
But after wearing one for a solid week I noticed that my penis felt numb and had a purplish hue.
Doctors wanted to cut off my loom band but I wouldnt let them because it took me six hours to make.
Ultimately my member went bad and fell off in the bath.”
Doctor Mary Fisher said: Men love to join in childish crazes, like cycling. But remember that no amount of adornment can make the penis look anything other than disgusting.
