User avatar Hello,
It sounds as if your boyfriend could have fractured his penis. The penis doesn't actually have a "bone" in it, there are two tubelike masses of tisssue called corpora cavernosa that run through the center of the penis. They become engorged with blood during sexual arousal which causes the penis the become erect and rigid. Each corpus cavernosum is covered with a fibrous sheath and this can be torn if bent wrong. In severe cases, the urethra can also be damaged, this it the tube that urine passes through. If he continues to have erection problems he will need to contact a Urologist for treatment and may require surgery to repair.
