“If they were out in the general community they would go out and get illicit substances, drive around in their car, get intoxicated, do stupid things,” said Ness McVie, the Chair of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists’ Faculty of Forensic Psychiatry. “While they are in jail they haven’t got access to that, but they’ve got the same drive to get the same high.”
Awesome. Dumbasses putting things in their penis instead of getting doing something stupid out in regular society.

In my quest to provide clever visuals to accompany each post (Please note, dear reader, that I have never been so terrified in my life to use Google image search), I stumbled across this little gem – an article with historical accounts of the practice of penile inserts in Southeast Asia. The author claims the penile inserts were originally to deter men from sodomy. I think the website is a travel site but can’t be certain as the rest of it is in Dutch. AND THERE’S A GIANT PICTURE OF A PENIS WITH A PENILE INSERT. Can’t say I didn’t warn you.
