penis Weight Lifting
I get curious when it comes to sex. Recently while playing, I tied some string to a golf ball with some tape around to secure it and tied it around the shaft of my erect penis. I then proceeded to lift the golf ball…  Am I the only guy who can lift/ tries to lift things with his penis?

I find this so fascinating and turns me on to know what I can with it, that I am “ gyming”  my member and will after much practice try with a snooker ball… 

Am I alone in trying this or attempting this. Can the Sexologist advise me of any danger to this?

My first thought (after smiling about the game you are playing) is that you need to be careful not to tie things too tightly around your penis, and particularly not for any length of time as blood needs to FLOW through the penis just like other parts of the body! The second is to beware that you don't cause damage to the spongy tissue in the corpus cavernosum (the two long chambers down the length of your penis that fill with blood). WHilst it is unlikely as your penis wouldn't be able to lift something that heavy - it is possible to 'fracture' the penis - essentially this is a tearing of the spongy tissue. ouch!
