Jerry just sent me a excerpt from a book he is reading and recommends I get.
“An interesting fact about Thailand – and one which is rarely mentioned in other guidebooks – is that Bangkok is a world center for penis reattachment surgery. There is a reason for this: cutting off a man’s penis is a fairly common form of retribution by angry wives, girlfriends, second wives (mia noi)*, or lovers. Some say Thailand is a world center for poly-amorization (jaochoo)*.If the unlucky man manages to bring his disconnected member to the hospital within an hour of severance, it can usually be surgically reattached. However, only in fifty per cent of these cases does the man regain normal sexual function of his penis. A team of doctors in one Bangkok hospital reportedly reattached thirty-three severed penises each year – about one every ten days.*jaochoo – multiple relationships* mia noi – second ‘little’ wife (mistress)”
