Urethral foreign body
Doctors have documented numerous cases of insertion of foreign bodies into the urethra, typically as the result of auto-erotic activities. This can result in infections and serious internal bleeding.
A wide variety of solid objects have been reported to have been inserted into the urethra, including batteries, safety pins, straws, and telephone wires. Liquefied objects have also been inserted into the urethra, such as an injection of cocaine (which, arguably, had harmful results).
