Buddhist monk chops off manhood to avoid temptation



A 27-year-old Thai Buddhist monk, Phra Oat, has taken the extreme measure of curbing future s3xual urge by cutting off his manhood with a kitchen knife at a temple in Kanchanaburi province in Thailand.

According to Daily Star, the incident occurred on January 1, 2023, but only came to public knowledge on Tuesday after Oat’s fellow monks rescued him and rushed him to a hospital.

“Oat was rushed to the hospital after slashing through his genitals, apparently resistant to the pain, having sprayed a temple cubicle in blood,” the Daily Star said in a report.

“The Monk, Oat, shocked his fellow monks when he sliced through his member in front of them at a temple in Kanchanaburi province in Thailand on January 1.

“Rescuers were called by the other monks who snatched the sharp object out of his hands before he could mutilate himself further.

“He was rushed to the Makarak Hospital for medical treatment, where medics were able to stitch the organ together as the knife had not completely cut the member.

“Speaking in a video, Oat said ‘I’m still feeling dizzy. There’s no reason behind it, it just happened. I don’t have depression, I don’t use drugs and I don’t have problems at home. My hands just moved and started with the cutting.”
