Youtube - The 18-inch cassava root from the operation procedure.
A 55-year-old Costa Rican man was forced to hospital for emergency surgery on his intestines in San Jose, after he had stuck a giant 18-inch (45 cm) thick yucca plant from a cassava root into his anus to pleasure himself sexually.
The man had before that, carved the yucca plant to a giant penis, or more like a dildo, and used it as a sex toy on himself.
Doctors had to perform some reconstructive procedures on the man's anus and intestines, but as the rectum was not perforated, the man is expected to make a full recovery.
See the video when doctors try to help the man.
