A woman in India has been arrested after she tore off her husband's testicles with her teeth.
And yet the man who collapsed in agony after the attack refused to go to medics for a week because he was ashamed that he was no longer a whole man, even when the bite became badly infected.
Police said the bizarre attack occurred in a marital spat over who was allowed into the kitchen of their home in Madhya Pradesh, a state in central India.
Hubby Jitendra Patel, 30, wanted to cook some food. His wife, Uma, 27, said the kitchen was her domain and barred him.
And what had started off as a war of words escalated into blows and finally into the savage bite upon the husbands' crown jewels.
He said: "I had been wearing just a robe that fell off when I struggled with my wife, and she sank her teeth into my private parts ripping off a crucial part."
The parts remaining later became infected but even then he declined hospital treatment, until a friend told him a woman's bite contained a poison that could kill, and warned him he could die without treatment.
A police spokesman said: "He was wearing a towel robe around the lower half of his body when the scuffle started. When this fell down she took the opportunity to sink her teeth into him."
His wife was charged with grievous bodily harm but the charge was later dropped after she agreed to counselling sessions with her wounded husband.
But a prosecutor has said that she must face punishment despite the alleged deal, and is considering attempted murder charges.
