MMA fighter Ray Elbe suffered broken penis during sex


MMA is a pretty dangerous combat sport that can lead to some serious injuries. Who would figure that the most gruesome injury one fighter suffered actually happened out of the cage?

Ray Elbe, who competed on Season 9 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” announced on Saturday that he sustained one of the most horrifying injuries we can think of: a broken penis. No, the injury did not occur while he was fighting; it actually happened while he was having sex.

Elbe explained in a video posted on his website over the weekend that the injury occurred while he was having sex with his girlfriend in Malaysia on Dec. 3. He says his penis broke (ed note: there is no bone to break) when his girlfriend landed hard on him. Blood began spraying everywhere.

“I ended up fracturing my penis bone … I tore the urinary tract, tore some membrane — as it happened you can imagine the shock and the horror that was going on,” Elbe said in the video. “I jumped up from the intimate moment, blood shooting out of my groin. I immediately tried to run to the shower, felt myself losing consciousness, tried to walk back to the bed at which point I collapsed, knocking myself out. I gave myself 10 stitches and fractured a couple teeth.”

Elbe says he tried treating himself after coming to, and that his girlfriend was frantic. She called emergency while he was laying naked on the floor in a pool of blood.

Elbe says he spent 13 days — including his birthday — in the hospital, and that he’s still using a catheter to urinate. He says he’s going back for a checkup on Dec. 19 where the catheter should be removed.

Elbe was obviously embarrassed about the injury, but he says he went public about it to raise awareness for it.

“This is probably the worst nightmare you can think of,” he said. “The biggest problem people suffering from this medical emergency encounter…is not immediately seeking medical attention.

“I hope my story helps someone with a similar injury in some way…as this experience is truly something you would never wish on anyone..lol,” Elbe wrote on his blog.

Over Twitter, Elbe described the experience as coming “as close to death as you can come without dying.”

Doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

We’ve seen other athletes get hurt during sex, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of someone breaking their penis. I honestly didn’t even know that was possible, so I really do thank Elbe for sharing his story to help educate the public.

And here I was thinking sex was supposed to be an enjoyable experience …

Elbe has racked up thousands of dollars in medical expenses as a result of the accident. If you feel badly for him, or at least got a nice laugh out of his painful story, maybe you could see fit to donate a few bucks to him to help him pay for the medical bills. You can donate to him through paypal by sending money to the following email address, which is Ray’s email: magicalray@aol.com

    She broke his dick! Wow, she must have some dangerous moves!

    I don’t think a human penis has a bone that can be broken.  He probably ruptured a blood vessel.  However, there are animals that have a bone in their penis.  A racoon has a bone in it’s prick which was used by hunters as a tooth pick.  It was called a coon prick toothpick.

    What a MORON I am an XRAY Technologist THERE IS NO BONE IN THE PENIS! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FRACTURE THE BONE IN YOUR PENIS THERE ISNT ONE! You can rupture tissue and the blood cells that engorge with blood can become damaged and not function properly again after or be crooked or not become erect from blockage from scarring etc but this is just NOT ACCURATE

    Now that is some serious GROUND and POUND !!!  Put her in the cage Dana !!!!

    No, there is no bone in the penis.  However,  “fractured penis” is in fact an accepted medical diagnosis.  It happens almost exclusively during strenuous sexual activity when the engorged penis is forcefully bent, tearing tissues and rupturing blood vessels.  This is indeed a medical emergency that can result is severe blood loss and permanent damage.

    See, no sex before marriage and this would not have happened!  Seriously, what a hot lady you got there.  Who is taking care of her needs during your time on injured reserve?  Just kidding.  Get well.

    I have suffered this also. Extreme activity can and did lead to extreme bending. It was very painful and took several weeks to settle down. I also tore both rotators independently having sex. All of this with the same woman. Some of just get it on…that’s what passion is about…!

    If this goes ‘viral’, please take my request to purchase my new book “Willie Means Well (But It Don’t Work Out Sometimes)-The Meal: featuring My Letter to the President and other Editorials” at Unique Euphony Publishing Group, 706 577-3197 . I’m sure many a guy has had that hurting feeling after having sex and his penis will not go down. I wonder will his opponent immediately go for that to get an edge when he returns to the ring.

    Who in their right mind would jump on her bf’s cock? Is she retarded? She probably is, what’s next? He punches her breast during sex? I’m adventurous when it comes to sex but to end in a hospital because of something stupid, nah!

  • Louis Walker

    You’re actually replying to yourself??  For the sake of the rest of us, get back on your meds–and double the dose!!  

  • Louis Walker

    You don’t need a witness, you need a therapist.

  • Louis Walker

    No, the human penis doesn’t have a bone.  Yes, when it’s engorged and stiff, it IS possible to “fracture” the soft tissues.  Massive blood loss is unusual, but internal bleeding with swelling and permanent scarring can happen that can result in long-term sexual dysfunction.  If he’s lucky, he’ll avoid that, but he’s got a long recovery ahead of him.

    When I was stationed at NAS Millington, TN, the Marine commander actually made one of the female Naval Seamen off-limits after she performed this feat on more than one occasion.  True story.  I was there in middle to late ’91.

    I think they might “like” that someone is calmly and rationally explaining the facts about a “fractured penis”. If not, all I can say is “Ouch!”

     Hey Scott, you should have capitalized the “I” at the beginning and put an apostrophe in “theyre”.  Looks like you haven’t made it up to three digits yet either.

  • tyc69n

    When you injure a solid organ, as in this instance, it’s called a fracture. You can also get a fractured spleen – etc. Being an x-ray tech you should know this… Dr.J. This is pretty basic healthcare terminology.

  • skippy slacker

    these internet doctors are correct; I checked and there seems to be no bone in my penis either! I wonder how I can get a “state the obvious” medical degree…..
