A man who suffered from painful, lengthy erections - including one that lasted three days - has been given a prosthetic penis controlled with a pump. James Mudd, 38, said he is 'over the moon' after his operation, which came just a day after his girlfriend dumped him. Mr Mudd, of Canning Town, London, had suffered with recurring priapism for almost two years, which caused tensions in his relationship. Doctors said it was likely caused by his anti-depressants. Two surgical attempts, where doctors tried to drain the blood from his penis with a blade, failed to relieve him of his persistent erections. But in the end, Mr Mudd was given no other choice than to have surgery to give him a pump-controlled penis in April 2018, paid for by the NHS. The procedure involved removing the tissues which form an erection - the corpus cavernosum - and replacing them with saline sacks. The sacks are inflated using a pump fitted between his testicles. No other structures were replaced, … [Read more...] about Man who had painful three-day long erection gets a pump-controlled prosthetic penis after being dumped by his girlfriend

‘Whatever happened to that kid from The Shining?” For years, horror fans pestered Stephen King about the fate of little Danny Torrance, the boy with psychic abilities who survived the Overlook Hotel. So much so that King eventually wrote a sequel, 2013’s Doctor Sleep. It’s a question that crops up on the internet too, about Danny Lloyd, the child actor with the pudding-bowl haircut who played Torrance in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film adaptation. On IMDb, Lloyd has just one other acting credit after The Shining (a long-forgotten TV drama about Watergate). Where did he disappear to? “I once read that I had six kids and was a pig farmer,” he says, chuckling on the phone from his home. “That’s not entirely accurate.” For the record, Lloyd – who goes by Dan rather than Danny these days – is a biology professor at a community college in Kentucky. He did work on a farm to pay his way through university, “but where … [Read more...] about Danny Lloyd – the kid in The Shining: ‘I was promised that tricycle after filming but it never came’
