While some men struggle to get it up, one poor chap had an erection that lasted for a mammoth 17 hours!

It all started when Jason Garnett woke up with morning glory that refused to go. He went for a jog and even had an ice bath to get rid of it but after it started to get painful, he eventually decided to go to A&E.

The hotel worker was diagnosed with priapism – a painful and dangerous condition where the penis remains erect for longer than usual.

Doctors revealed they'd have to draw out blood to reduce the pressure and removed two pints from the 23-year-old.

The Yorkshire chap was quoted in The Sun discussing the treatment: "Seeing them stab my penis with a needle was a horrible experience. The pain was ten out of ten."

But it still refused to go down so Jason had to suffer a further whopping 24 injections before his privates went flaccid.

Jason spent two days recovering in hospital, but now things are finally all OK with his downstairs department.

He revealed: "It is completely normal now, apart from the fact it looks like it's been through a war. It's all a bit black and blue."
