Penile Weight Lifting
After reading about this, I'm just at a loss for words. How in the world is this guy lifting the weight? Is he using a string to tie it to himself? Or is he just somehow positioning himself to lift the dumbbell from the ground? Either way, it can't be real. 75kg is a lot of weight. About 165lbs. Many men would struggle to bench press that much (especially if they had never done any weight training). And, of course, the fact that the story is on Ananova doesn't lend it credibility:

A Chinese man has lifted a 75kg barbell for 10 seconds - with his penis. Zhan, from Harbin city, Helongjiang province, said the skill is a branch of Kung Fu, which is exclusive to his family. Zhan, 55, says his father taught him the skill to help him get fit after a serious illness when he was 18. He started training by lifting small bricks with his penis, then gradually added weights and extended duration, reports Yangtsi Evening Post. Zhan, a director of the Hong Kong Chinese Culture Development Fund, said he had no interest in applying to the Guinness Book of Records.

Paul is right. Just because a guy hangs a dumb bell (Like I did) from his penis does not make a man better in bed. Only practice(with different women) will make a man better in bed.

In which category is his 75kg lift record, snatch or clean & jerk ?

If you check Mr. Lifto's site, it will answer a lot of your questions. Not only that, in many countries, having items, such as pearls, even pebbles, surgically implanted in the penis is a common practice. I can't recall what it is called at this moment. In the US, they use teflon beads, and Mr. Lifto has many of those, as well, implanted in this forehead, etc. He says that his penis is longer, and that when erect, can still fold it in half. But, with the Prince Albert, he has to sit to pee. Not only that, he was out of the Jim Rose Circus for awhile, because the piercing finally ripped through. For awhile, he tried using duct tape to attach the weight, but the audience was not impressed. I believe he's had reconstructive surgery. Also, another member of the Jim Rose Circus, The Enigma, has not only teflon beads implanted, but coral-based horns as well. Body modification is about as old as humankind itself.

Paul, I must agree with you about men being best in bed when they are good with their tongue. Seriously, to all women out there, date a musician, or more specifically a wind player. they are good with their me I know.

And Stephen....I can't believe you tried that!

How in the world can a guy fold an erect penis in half???? I sure as hell can't, I don't think I would want to. Ouch!!! why would he do dat?? He must have broke it. Now, I have been known to do "Stupid Human" tricks with mine (just women have seen these) that most guy's would consider painful, besides the dumbell thing, but I would never try to fold it in half when erect.

What's going on here?
35 comments and no one has pointed out that if this guy actually caused serious injury to himself he would REALLY BE PULLING A BONER, now wouldn't he?
P.S. "Modern Primitives" by "REsearch" books (not a typo)was the freak reference manual that all us arty kids used to read in high school. The first pages are pictures of Bob Flanders(?) (sorry, blanking out) lifting cinder blocks with his nipples. He lifted from the penile perspective, too, I think.

This will take you to an interview with Mr. Lifto, where he mentions he gained 2-3 inches in length, but it became skinnier. This is also where he mentions he can get hard and fold it in half. He also says he has lifted about 70-75 lbs. with his penile piercing.

Also, he uses the word I couldn't think of earlier, the practice of placing raised implants in the penis--ampallang.

Awwwww! My Virgin ears!

I think I lost a member of the family just listening to all this. Something to think about when one weighs the evidence (weighs, hehe) Is that there are other ways this can be done. The laws of mass have lead to me believe if the weight was to be rested upon the pelvis it would be rather easy for it to work. Since it would spread about your body it would appear that your pulling off a feat that would render most of us childless. Im not sure if this is the case, I havent seen any pictures so I am not sure how the weight is held. On top of that I would love to see how the weight is fastened on, this could also lead to a spreading of weight over the whole thing and allow for an easier lift.

Sorry to hear about the problems the Amazing Mr. Lifto has had. I met him once and he was a very nice man. (I've watched him perform the penile lift from a few feet away). As with most descriptions of this feat "lifted with the penis" can be a statement misleading to some.

ok u can lift weight with a penis but not something like 20-30 pounds.. heck now even 10 pounds.. start with something like 1/16 pound and never go above 1/4 pound..

this is how u do it

first gain a full erection.. now wear the weight ring on the head of the penis.. now rest is on some support so it does not cause any downward pull on ur penis. Contract ur pubic and penile muscle to lift the weight as high as u can.. Do this a few times a day. it will give you a stronger ejaculation and increased power to hold ejaculation. no one under their right might should go about 1/4 pound.. bcuz weight will cause serious damage to sensitive tissue of vessels and ur balls leading to permenant loss of erection as well as impotence aka imability to impregnate any women

That is so disgusting... i don't believe it for a minute though... That is humanly impossible... I dont have a dick but dont you think it would pull right off your body... smile

He is using the PC muscle, it's the muscle
that keeps the penis erect. It's the muscle
you use when you stop peeing, and when you
ejaculate. The world record I think is actually
112 kg. It is possible, but I think it's totally
