Surgeons in the United Kingdom repaired 169 fractured manhoods in the 12 months to April 2022 — up 46 on the year before.

According to the Scottish Sun, experts reckon it may show that more men are using Viagra to make a stand.

Most procedures involve men in their 30s, although two in their 70s had breaks last year.

London-based consultant urologist Gordon Muir said breaks occur during sex when the willy comes out and gets bent on the way back in — usually when the woman is on top.

He said: “Most men feel a pop or crack and lose their erection.

There’s usually bruising. The penis can look like an aubergine.

“If untreated, erectile dysfunction or scarring can cause serious long-term problems.”

Rob Andrews, 32, of Liverpool, snapped his member during a Viagra-fuelled romp with partner Isabella Woolf.

She said: “I jumped on top of him and heard a crack.

“At the hospital, X-rays confirmed a penis break. Fortunately, it’s recovered!”
