Passion is all fine and good, as long as you keep it limited to one person. Spreading the love around could lead to a jealous partner and undesired consequences.
On 30th March, a 40-year-old Vietnamese woman in Taiwan sliced off her boyfriend’s penis and flushed it down the toilet. She later turned herself in to the police.
The 52-year-old boyfriend, surnamed Huang (黃) fell asleep on Tuesday night after eating a bowl of instant chicken noodles with rice wine. While he was asleep, the Vietnamese woman, surnamed Phung (馮), sheared off his genitals with a pair of kitchen scissors.
Huang woke up later in pain and discovered his penis had been cut off. According to a local firefighter captain, who was one of the first respondents to the scene, Huang was bleeding profusely but still able to walk on his own. They then rushed him to Changhua Christian Hospital.
The hospital deputy director Chou Chih-chung (周志中) said they had to perform emergency surgery to stop the bleeding. While his scrotum and testicles were still intact, they had to repair the urethra. “(Huang) is not in any deadly danger,” Chou reported. “He was still in pain after recovering form anesthetics, but can drink water and eat normally.”
Huang only had 20% of his genitals left (1.5cm), and the main length of his manhood could not be reattached. “The remaining part is insufficient to engage in sexual intercourse, therefore the best way is to implant an artificial penis,” Chou explained. The director also revealed that Huang would need further reconstructive surgery and psychological counselling.
Phung surrendered herself around midnight yesterday (31st March). The woman confessed to the police that she cut off Huang’s penis in a fit of anger as she suspected he was cheating on her. She also admitted to flushing his manhood down the toilet.
According to the couple’s neighbours, the two have been living together for 10 months. Both are divorcees and Phung obtained citizenship from her previous marriage. The neighbours revealed that the two were often heard arguing and suspect Huang’s close relationship with his female friends may have sparked her jealousy. Huang, who operates a Taoist shrine, was married thrice. He has three daughters from his previous marriages.
Police are investigating if Phung drugged Huang’s meal. Currently, she is facing charges of aggravated assault.
