A Colombian man was forced to have his penis amputated after intentionally overdosing on Viagra in order to impress his younger girlfriend.

The 66-year-old farmer who lives in Gigante, Colombia popped several of the pills to impress his new lover with his sexual prowess, the Huffington Post is reporting. 

After suffering a week-long erection, the man finally visited a hospital. There, doctors told him his penis was inflamed, fractured, and showing signs of gangrene.
