There was a report in the paper over the weekend about a Romanian couple presenting in A&E with mysterious injuries. She had a black eye, severe bruising to her head and third degree burns down her back. He had a deep gash in his penis which required four hours of emergency surgery to save. What had happened? It seemed he was cooking pancakes while she performed oral sex on her husband. In his ecstasy he dropped the pan, spilled burning oil down her back. In shock she bit down hard on his penis and he had to beat her about the head with the pan to release it. Both did not want their names given out. Google it – the story is out there.
Why I laughed is that I wrote a scene of similar proportions for my book, The Cougar Diaries, Part I. I was at my son’s rugby practice and I had sneaked off to my car to write this scene. I sat in the back as there was more room and tackled the chapter. I was giggling so hard as I wrote it I am sure if anyone saw or heard me they would think I was mad! It is very hard to write a sex scene with a straight face. I mean, in real life things go wrong, although not normally as wrong as for our poor Romanian friends. In my book I could see the scene happening and I laughed so hard tears ran down my face, but I was making it up. After all, I am writing fiction so I am allowed creative license. But when I read the report at the weekend, I had to smile again. It seems that truth really is stranger than fiction!
