Abstract Constricting devices placed on the penis present a challenge to urologists. Various nonmetallic and metallic objects are placed on the penis to increase sexual performance or because of autoerotic intentions. We describe five different cases of strangulating objects (wedding ring, metal plumbing cuff, bull ring, hammer- head, and plastic bottle neck) and demonstrate that each case needs individual handling in removing the object. The treatment of penile strangulation is decompression of the constricted penis to facilitate free blood flow and micturition. It requires no particular skill but does require resourcefulness to perform the removal simply and effectively, and with as little discomfort for the patient as possible.
