Spoilers: Hospitalizations for Rectal Foreign Objects on the Rise


Nearly 4,000 people are hospitalized with foreign objects in their rectum each year, according to a new study published last month in The American Journal of Emergency Medicine, and many of the objects stuck are sex objects.

Researchers at the University of Rochester in New York were perplexed by the “little epidemiological information on this condition,” so they decided to look at emergency reports from 2012 to 2021.

The study, said to be the first “nationally representative data” on rectal foreign bodies in the US, found 38,948 emergency department visits based on 885 cases in this period among killjoys ages 15 and older.

The researchers searched the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System for injuries involving the “pubic region” or “lower trunk,” accompanied by “an adjunct diagnosis of foreign body, puncture, or laceration.”

The system keeps track of injuries related to consumer products, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Of these reported cases, the average age of the patient who attended the emergency room was 43 years.

Almost 78% of the patients were men and 40% of these patients required hospitalization.

More than half of the foreign bodies were sexual objects, which could be items such as vibrators, anal beads, or other toys.

Balls and marbles, as well as medications, were associated with a lower hospitalization rate.

The researchers also found an increase in hospital visits for rectal foreign items during the period they studied, from 1.2 per 100,000 people in 2012 to 1.9 in 2021.

“These data quantify a common clinical presentation that has received little research attention,” the study authors wrote.

“These data suggest that there are sex- and age-specific differences in outcomes that may have an anatomical or behavioral basis.”

In April, the Visual Journal of Emergency Surgery reported that a man had to be rushed into emergency surgery after a can of deodorant got stuck in his butt.

And last year, an elderly Frenchman left doctors in shock when he arrived with a World War I artillery shell lodged in his rectum.

This caused the hospital to be partially evacuated for fear of a bomb.
