In Thailand, between 1973 and 1980, there was curious outbreak of penile amputations by women.
Fidelity is held in high esteem over there and it appeared that Thai wives took to punishing their philandering husbands by getting them drunk and then, while they slept in a drunken stupor, the wives cut off their disloyal dicks.
An article by a group of Thai surgeons, Surgical Management of an Epidemic of Penile Amputations in Siam – American Journal of Surgery (1983), reported that there had been at least one hundred cases of wifely retaliation.
Many of the severed willy`s could not be surgically reattached because they could not be found. The traditional Thai house is built on stilts with the family’s pigs, chickens and other livestock living underneath. The problem was that the wives tossed their husbands dicks out of the window to be swallowed whole by pigs or pecked apart by hens.
During the seven year wave of amputations, Thai men developed the saying:
“I better get home or the pigs will have something to eat!”
