A lady has dismissed as a myth Africans belief in ‘magun’, known since 2001 as Thunderbolt after the movie by Mainframe Film and Television Productions.
Magun in Africa is believed to be a curse laid on cheating women whereby any man that has sexual intercourse with her exhibits some unusual symptoms before dying. Some of the symptoms include somersaulting, an insatiable taste for water, amongst others. Recently lovers getting stuck during sex have been attributed to the ‘magun’ curse.
But according to a Nigerian lady, who uses the handle Controversial Queen🇺🇸/Nnadede_1 on Twitter, magun/thunderbolt or people getting stuck during sex is not the work of “village people, juju or charm” but a condition called Penis captivus.
On Wikipedia, Penis captivus is described as a rare occurrence during sexual intercourse when the muscles in the vagina clamp down on the penis much more firmly than usual, making it impossible for the penis to be withdrawn from the vagina.
Her tweets read ;
It’s not village people, juju or charm.
Penis captivus is a rare occurrence during sexual intercourse when the muscles in the vagina clamp down on the penis much more firmly than usual, making it impossible for the penis to be withdrawn from the vagina.
Penis captivus occurs more frequently in animals than it does in humans. And it’s not uncommon to see animals that “are stuck together” after sex, particularly dogs.
If a partner feels penis captivus starting to happen, they should try to stay calm. Added stress can lead to more muscular tension, which can make the phenomenon last longer. It is important not to try to force the penis out of the vagina. Doing so can hurt one or both partners.
It is also important not to try to open the vagina or pry the penis out manually. Taking deep breaths may help both partners become or remain calm. Distracting each other or making a joke out of the situation can also relieve the tension and reduce arousal in the genitals.
“I must tell you it is no myth,” wrote one woman who asked to remain anonymous. “It happened to my late husband and myself one night. He literally could not withdraw…I attributed it to the intensity of the vaginal muscle response during orgasm.”
