OMG!!! 30 Year Old Man Unable To Have Séx After Botched Penile Surgery

A man who underwent a vasectomy has been left with a horrific condition that makes him unable to have s*x.
A 30-year-old man has been left unable to have s*x and faces having both of his testicles removed after a botched vasectomy.
According to The Sun UK, the man, identified as Daniel and a father of five, has only managed to have s*x with his wife Sara once in the last four years.
Even then, he ended up in hospital in excruciating pain, reports say.
Daniel had undergone a vasectomy in 2012, an irreversible surgery that sterilizes men and makes them unable to impregnate a woman again.
David had his first child at 19, and is father to four girls and a boy. He has been unable to have four four years since he had the procedure.
He said his injuries have left him in “constant and unbearable agony” and the operation has “destroyed his life.”
David reportedly had a vasectomy in Nottingham in January 2012, but said that the 12 anaesthetic injections he was given failed to work and that he “could feel everything” while the surgery lasted.
Four years later, he suffers from sharp shooting pains through his groin and into his stomach.
Doctors have told David, that he is “suffering from post-vasectomy pain syndrome.”
The condition is a known complication of the surgery, but the cause of it can be unclear.
Experts believe it’s triggered by various scenarios, one of which is a build-up of scar tissue in the area.
A leak of sperm into the testicle tissue can also cause the pain, by triggering intense inflammation as the body sees the sperm as a foreign body.
Other theories include nerve damage caused during the surgery, and interrupting the natural drainage of sperm.
David said the pain was so bad he has had to take morphine tablets for the past three years.
The doting dad, who was driven to a suicide by his condition, is on a waiting list to have an operation where his scrotum will be pumped full of anti-inflammatory drugs.
If that doesn’t work, he will have both of his testicles removed.
Speaking exclusively to the Sun Online, David said: “They can take my testicles for all I care. I just want the pain to be over.
“They can take them like a dog, I just want to be free of the pain.”

Just In!! Alex Ferguson To Return As Manchester United Manager (See Details)

Sir Alex Ferguson will return to the Old Trafford dugout to manage the Manchester United 2008 XI, in Michael Carrick’s testimonial game this year.
This was confirmed via the Premier League club’s official Twitter handle on Monday morning.
Ferguson stepped down as manager of the Red Devils after the 2012/2013 season.
Harry Redknapp, who managed the former England midfielder at West Ham United, will be in charge of the Michael Carrick All-Star XI.
“I think the best bit will be seeing the players, to be honest with you,” Ferguson told MUTV.
“No [I don’t miss managing]. I miss the big games of course but I made my decision and I’m enjoying it. I don’t have to worry about you lads or the agents or the press conferences and having to control that press secretary of mine!
“I’m delighted Michael is getting a testimonial. It tells you Manchester United are probably the only club in England that can do that. Players do tend to stay a long time here. We don’t have players here one minute and gone the next. If you go right back to my time, most of the players stayed 10 or even more years. I think we can be proud of that fact, being a family-type club. It encourages players to put roots down here and enjoy it.
“I read about what Michael’s intentions are [with the funds raised for the event] and I think it’s very honourable. I think he’s shown he’s prepared to share his success and his contribution to the charity, starting it himself, will be very, very worthwhile.”
The testimonial will be played on June 8 and kick-off is 4pm.

Manchester United football club has announced they will be traveling to the United States for a preseason tour this summer, in which they will play five matches in five different cities.
Jose Mourinho’s side will travel to the U.S. for matches at cities such as Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Santa Clara and Washington DC in the build-up to the 2017-18 Premier League season.
They are also expected to play some fixtures as part of the preseason International Champions Cup, ICC, tournament.

My Husband Beats Me For Not Bearing Male Child, Wife Tells Court

A wife, Sayo Akomolafe, on Monday told Ikole-Ekiti Customary Court in Ekiti State that her husband beats her constantly for not having a male child.
She pleaded with the court to dissolve her marriage to her husband Segun Akomolafe due to neglect, lack of care and constant beating.
She said trouble started when her husband discovered that she was pregnant with a girl-child for the fifth time.
The plaintiff said her husband, who never beat her before, used her as punching bag because she could not give him a male child.
“I gave birth to my first child 13 years ago, but my husband started neglecting me and the children when I gave birth to the fifth girl-child.
“As a result, he married two other women and ever since they arrived, I have no peace again in the house”, she said.
She said the two wives also gave birth to female children.
Sayo added that she later gave birth to the sixth child – a boy- for the same man.
The defendant, a welder; denied constantly beating her, saying that trouble started when his wife discovered that he married other women.
The three-member panel of the court headed by Mrs Yemisi Ojo, however, told the husband that the chromosome released by man is what determines the sex of a child.
Ojo also ruled that the aggrieved parties and their families should go back home to deliberate on how to take care of the six children.
“The court is disposed to settlement outside court and this case being a fresh matter, parties are given the opportunity to deliberate on how take care of the children”, she said.
The court ordered that the defendant must not beat his wife again and adjourned the case till May 8, for report of settlement.

I Will Not Rest Until I Tackle Nigeria’s Challenges – President Buhari Promises

The President of Nigeria has pledged not to rest until he has tackled the challenges facing Nigeria and Nigerians.
President Muhammadu Buhari has told state governors in the country that he will not rest until he has addressed the challenges facing the country.
According to DailySun, Buhari said this on Thursday when he turned down an advice by the state governors for him to take more rest.
A statement by his Shehu Garba, the president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, said President Buhari turned down the advice of the governors at a meeting of the National Economic Council (NEC) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The statement quoted Buhari as saying: “I will not rest until I address those issues that affect our people. One of these basic things is the issue of salaries.
“It is most important that workers are able to feed their families, pay rent and school fees, then other things can follow.”
He commended the governors for not considering political affiliations in their goodwill messages and prayers for him while he was away from the country.
Interestingly, many Nigerians who reacted urged the president to heed the advice of the governors while others said they would continue to pray for him.

Ladies: See The 5 Ways To Effectively Clean Your Vàgina After Sèx To Prevent Diseases

Cleaning your honeypot immediately after a pleasure session is very important for ladies to avoid Sexually Transmitted Infections and other sort of irritations.
When you think of the times that you feel the most relaxed and happy, the blissed-out buzz you get after an climax ranks right up there with a deep tissue massage. But what you choose to do while buzzed impacts your v*gina.
“When the v*ginal tissues have been lubricated, swollen, and rubbed against during intercourse, it changes how that tissue reacts to the environment.
Primarily, you run a much greater risk of infection,” says Kansas-based gynaecologist, Dr. Leslie Page
Here, we break down the stuff you should never, ever do after s*x if you want to keep your v**ina happy:
(1) Don’t forget to pee
During s*x, bacteria can get pushed into your bladder. “This can result in post-intercourse bladder infections,” says an obstetrics gynaecologist, Dr. Robert Wool, M.D.
“You can have some snuggle time, just empty your bladder within one hour of having s*x.”
Then, wipe from front to back to avoid spreading fecal matter from your anus to the v*gina.
“Due to swelling and micro-abrasions that can occur during s*xual intercourse, your vulva and vaginal skin are particularly tender and prone to infection,” says Page.
(2) Don’t use soap to wash your v*gina
Some women might feel the urge to wash the v*gina with soap after s*x, but that’s really unnecessary. Not only might you have an allergic reaction if your post-s*x skin reacts differently to the harsh chemicals in cleansers, but “using soap can lead to v*ginal irritation and dryness,” Wool says.
“The v*gina is a self-cleaning organ, and needs to be treated very, very gently — if you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, you shouldn’t put it in or around your v*gina,” Page says. If you want to take a post-s*x shower, use plain water to rinse off.
(3) Don’t sleep in your nylon underwear
Cotton lingerie is okay because it’s breathable, but nylon, rayon, or polyester undies are a no-no.
“After s*x, your skin tends to be warm and damp, thanks to perspiration, v*ginal secretions, and semen,” Page says.
“As such, synthetic underwear traps the moisture and you run the risk of a yeast infection,” Wool says. “The v*gina likes to breathe.” So, go unclad or stick to cotton pants after s*x.
(4) Don’t swim in a hot bath tub
Getting your bubbles on sounds like the perfect after-s*x activity, but it’s bad news.
“When your vulva swells in response to s*xual stimulation, it reveals the opening of the v*gina, which means you have a greater chance of infection,” Page says.
If you’re in a hot tub with your partner, that means you’re exposed to the bacteria on his skin and anus. Also, extensive water exposure reduces the efficiency of your skin’s antimicrobial barrier, she says.
(5) Don’t use flushable wet wipes
If you’re sensitive to chemicals like alcohol, glycerin, scents, and certain oils, using a flushable wet wipe after s*x can cause irritation, since you’re more susceptible to skin issues after s*x, says Page.
The signs include redness, swelling, itching, and tenderness. If you’re set on cleaning up with something other than toilet paper, try doing your own wipe with warm water and vinegar, says Page.
Mix one teaspoon of vinegar with a quart of water, pour some on to a wash cloth and wipe your vulva over the toilet, and then pat dry, she says.
“The vinegar is mildly cleansing and helps maintain the skin’s natural acidity,” says Page.
The bottom line: You have only one v*gina, treat it gently.

Omg! Lautech Final Year Student Hanged Himself In His Hostel (Photo)

A final year student of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, Oyo State, Adesoji Adediran at the weekend committed suicide by hanging himself in the hostel.
It was gathered that the 500-level student of Urban and Regional Planning Department hanged himself in the school’s hostel on Saturday.
It was learnt that his roommates, who had been away for a night study, returned in the morning to find his corpse dangling from the ceiling.
The school management was said to have been alerted, which informed policemen from the Owode division, who removed the remains. The corpse was said to have been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.

A classmate of the victim, who asked not to be identified, said Adediran’s remains were found around 5.30am, PUNCH reports.
He said, “He has two roommates. The roommates went for a night study on Friday. When they returned to the room on Saturday, they discovered that he had hanged himself with a cable. Nobody has an idea why he killed himself.”
A close friend of the victim, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed surprise at Adediran’s death.
He said, “As his friend, what pained me most was that we still played together on Friday night. He never opened up to me. We asked him to go with us for the night study, but he said he preferred to stay behind. Around 5.30am when we returned, we found his corpse.
He was almost done with his final year project and he never complained of anything. We are a clique and we eat together; it was all fun, until we found his corpse.”
He described the deceased as “funny and lively”, saying Adediran couldn’t have suffered from depression.
He said the police from the Owode division removed the corpse from the room.
Our correspondent learnt that the police took statements from the roommates, which were later withdrawn by the deceased’s parents, who insisted on not pursuing any case due to the nature of the death.
According to the PUNCH, the parents also objected to the idea of holding a candle-light procession in his honour, saying they wanted him to “rest in peace.”
This is just as tributes have continued pouring in from friends of the victim on Facebook. A friend, who identified himself as Horlarholu Xarmoohel Cartel, said the late Adediran was a fan of the Chelsea Football Club.
He said:
“Adesoji, can’t believe my eyes when I saw adieu in your name. I don’t know this is what you mean when you said, ‘I am not coming to class again,’ after we sat for a test last week. Haa! SOJ, the best Chelsea fan I ever knew; the best record keeper who doesn’t need Google before he tells you history of football. Already missing you bro, can’t get hold of myself since I heard about your death. I know God knows best.”
Another friend, Adepeju Babatudne, wrote:
“Hmmm, I saw him and Tayo (bestie) beside my hostel cracking jokes with friends when we finished that test. I even accused him of not coming for the test, but he replied, ‘I came nah…’ I don’t even know what to write right now because I know what you passed through when we were in 200 level, but why now? Rest on dear.”
When contacted, an official of the school said the management was not aware of the incident. He, however, promised to get back after contacting a director in the school. He had yet to do so as of press time.
The Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ajisebutu Adekunle, said, “The deceased committed suicide by hanging himself on the ceiling fan. He didn’t leave any suicide note. The case is under investigation. Meanwhile, the corpse has been deposited at LAUTECH morgue for autopsy.”

Manchester United Get Massive Boost Over Paul Pogba’s Injury

Manchester United have been buoyed by the news of Paul Pogba’s fitness following reports from France Football Federation confirming he will be out for just two weeks.

3 Terrible Myths About Achieving Musical Greatness (And Why They Are False)

Achieving musical greatness is almost unattainable when you believe in common (false) myths followed by other musicians. Staying away from these three myths makes it much easier to become a great musician:

Myth #1. Musical Greatness = Being Original
Musical greatness comes down to this: being able to express exactly what you want with little effort. What you express might be original or might not be original. Classically trained pianists achieve greatness through technique and musical ability despite only playing the music of other composers. It is also possible to be original without expressing yourself.
The thing that matters the most is that you have something to express and are ready to find out how to clearly express it in music.

Myth #2. You Must Be Talented To Become A Great Musician
False: musical greatness is simply a byproduct of mastering musical skills and integrating them together. People who have natural talent were not born talented. They figured out on their own how to master the right skills to become good musicians.
It is 100% possible to become a great musician regardless of how much talent you began with. Tons of great musicians started their careers with absolutely no skills or talent. Anyone can become great and learn the right musical skills by working with an experienced teacher.

Myth #3. To Be Musically Great You Must Play Many Styles Well
You can express yourself very well in one style (that you love). Most of the greatest musicians in the world were specialists in a single style (or closely related styles). For example, two great musicians Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen never strayed too far from their respective genres. Musical greatness is about acquiring skills needed to express the sounds you hear in your head and mastering them.
Rather than trying to become great in many genres, stay with the genre you are most passionate about. Then work with a teacher who understands how to teach you things that help you become great in any genre. For instance, ear training, music theoryScience Articles, music writing and live performing.
When you stay away from these 3 myths you get rid of the obstacles in the way of your musical greatness.

TOP 5 The Dirtiest Attractions Of The World

1. Gum Wall (Seattle, Washington)

Strange tradition has appeared in Seattle and led to the emergence of an extravagant and unhygienic memo – a brick wall near the local theater, completely covered with chewing gum. The tradition began in the 90-ies of the last century. After the “Herculean” efforts of the numerous visitors of the theater, that were trying to get rid of their gum while waiting in queue, the wall has turned to a field of gum. For some people, it is one of the brightest Seattle points of interest, but for others it has a completely repulsive appearance.
2. St. Mark’s Square (Venice, Italy)

When you will choose the best option of hotels in Venice, you have to check out maybe this place of interest is somewhere nearby. Extremely beautiful St. Mark’s Square in Venice has a “reverse side”: hundreds of hungry pigeons, that are flying over the heads of tourists. Although the practice of selling food for birds was finished a few years ago, the probability of being “attacked” and “labeled”  by birds is very high. Some tourists evince a desire to feed them or hold them on their hands, forgetting a few important points:
1) pigeons are leaving their “souvenirs” on clothing or body without warning;
2) there is a ban on feeding pigeons  in Venice, which is provided to fairly substantial fines  for its  failure. This rule is to protect the city memorials from  pigeon droppings.
3. Tomb of Oscar Wilde (Paris, France)

Oscar Wilde joked: “All can be gone through, but death.” However, the brilliant irish writer managed to win a death. Memory about him lives to this day, and thousands of concerned admirers of his talent come to his grave. He was buried in Paris on Père Lachaise Cemetery. A huge monument in the form of a winged sphinx on his grave , decorated with many … kisses. It is a “mecca” for book lovers and admirers of the writer. To express their love and respect, they touch the monument with their lips, leaving on the tombstone multiple lipstick prints.
The authorities approved a fine of 9,000 euros ($ 12,000) for the improper attitude to the memorial, but loving tourists often manages to escape “from the scene” before the police arrived. In 2011, on the occasion of the 111th anniversary of Oscar Wilde’s death, Parisian authorities decided to build a glass fence around the monument. From now on, fans are leaving traces on the glass, throwing flowers and notes over the fence.
4. Blarney Stone (Blarney Castle, Ireland)

According to the legend, the one, who will kiss the stone, which is located in the castle of Blarney, will acquire the gift of eloquence. Each year about 400 thousand people, that would like to speak beautifully from around the world, touch the stone with their lips, leaving billions of microbes. Except the fact, that it is unsanitary, you have know that it also takes a lot of physical effort to kiss it, because the stone is hanging over one’s head.
5. Forecourt of Grauman’s Chinese Theater (California, Hollywood, USA)

You can see the handprints and feet of many stars of world cinema on the forecourt of Grauman’s Chinese Theater on the Avenue of Stars in Los Angeles. They left it in the wet concrete. Millions of fans touch to these prints. But nobody does their disinfection. So before you’ll “measure” your idol’s hands or feet sizes, you should put on gloves or wash your hands after it properly.
