After learning about the procedure on the Internet, a Reno, Nevada man castrated himself. However, he was rushed to the hospital when he could not control the bleeding. Officials at Washoe Medical Center would not comment on the man's condition. However, he did tell police he performed to procedure to reduce his libido.

RENO, Nev. - A 50-year-old Reno man who was hospitalized after he castrated himself told police he learned of the procedure on the Internet and did so to lower his libido. The man, whose name was not released, called 911 at about 1:30 a.m. Monday and asked for help because he could not stop the bleeding from a self-castration operation, police said.

Reno police and medics responded to the man's home and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Washoe Medical Center officials cited privacy issues on why they could not release any information on the man, including his condition. But police said hospital officials confirmed Wednesday the man successfully castrated himself.

"the man obviously needs some sort of counseling," Reno police Lt. Ron Donnelly told the Reno Gazette-Journal.

All I can say is ouch! What could he have possible used for anesthesia? Or a scalpel? Yikes. Washoe Medical Center is an interesting place. We fly our helicopter there once in a while to pick up kids. One night they refused to move their copter off the pad, so we landed in a park across the street. A homeless guy, drunk and enraged that we woke him up, came running out to us waving a bat and was almost killed by the tail rotor.

Another note: actually he didn't 'finish' it himself, the hospital had to finish it for him. That's why s/he was there. I just can't imagine he could get that far using pliers. I want to find the website that inspired him.

Ya, I clinched up.

How would one even go about that?? Damn.

That must have been one hell of a libido if he wanted it lowered that bad.

Edit: I think I may have found the site he used, but it has full penal nudity and things being done to it no one wants to see. YIKES.

If you can't post a link can you U2U (or whatever) me the link?

I think we are overlooking the obvious here.

Pliers are dangerous.

I think we should register all of them and have a three day waiting period and background check before you are allowed to purchase them.

Please, noone post the link to the site that this guy used. Its a violation of the T&C cause of the nudity and we do not want to encourage anyone eh?

Bricks too. Only one brick can be purchased at any one time. The purchasing of two bricks is to be banned, since it is considered tantamount to assisting personal castration and will not be tolerated in a civilised society

Hmmm you would need a questionaire:

1) Why do you want the pliers?
2) Do you intend to use them for anything other than thier intended purpose?
3) Are you inclined to self mutilation?
