Jesse N. Mills, MD, an associate clinical professor of urology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, says the most common penis injury he sees is a penis fracture. "That's when a man tears the tough outer lining of his penis during sex when he bangs his erect penis into his partner's pubic bone. It usually happens when the female is on top and thrusting down on the man's erect penis," he says. Dr. Mills says penile fractures usually happens when a partner is drunk.
Legal issues aside, if you came across this story and went, "wait, what's a testicular torsion?," you’re not alone — we did, too. While Bieber was not ultimately diagnosed with the condition, and was instead diagnosed with less serious testicular swelling, it is true is that testicular torsion is a somewhat common issue. So we called a few doctors to see what it's all about and how to avoid it happening to you.
Most of the time, sex myths are just that — imaginary fables that have no basis in reality, like vaginas with teeth or that urban legend about the movie star who went to the ER with a gerbil up his butt. That's not quite the case, however, when it comes to myths about cock rings. A constrictive removable ring that's worn around the base of the penis or scrotum, cock rings help pump blood to the penis and trap it there, thus helping the wearer maintain his erection.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
