Scanzoni's patient was "a completely healthy young woman, married for six months". She and her husband had to abstain from sexual intercourse because her intense vaginal contractions were "most painful to him and Hildebrandt's patient had been married for about a year. Sexual intercourse with her husband had always been painless until one particular evening. Hildebrandt gives the husband's account of what happened: He reported that just at the moment when he thought intercourse, which had been quite normal till then, had come to an end, he suddenly felt that he, or rather his glans , was held back deep in the vagina, tightly gripped and imprisoned, while his whole penis was in the vagina.
All attempts at withdrawal failed. When he forced the attempts, he caused severe pain to himself and his wife. Bathed in perspiration through agitation, alarm and his failure to free himself, he was finally forced to resign himself to waiting in patience. He could not say how many minutes this lasted, his imprisonment seemed endless.
Then — the hindrance vanished on its own; he was free. If there had been, during that time, a case of penis captivus that needed medical intervention or admission to hospital it would have been eagerly reported in a medical journal with as much detail and evidence as possible. An anaesthetic was given to the female and they were discharged later the same morning. Musgrave had rung his old friend Dr S. Wolfe, "who was the other houseman at the hospital at the time.
He confirmed my story, his exact words being 'I remember it well. The girl had been having sex with a man and her vagina had clamped tightly around his swollen penis. In freeing his penis, the man had inflicted "a heavily bleeding tear. A very deep wound. After Dottoressa Moor had staunched the bleeding, she and a colleague she had summoned stitched the girl up. It needed two or three doctors to help to undo them. It is alleged that the two lovers engaged in extramarital sex in a lodging in the town.
The story was captured once the lady cried out for help, attracting the attention of those around prompting them to intervene. They were carried to a witch-doctor who is alleged to have managed to separate them by performing rituals. The story was by authentic media stations in the country. Both men served on that respected journal's editorial board.
