A woman in China reportedly kissed her boyfriend’s ear way too hard that she accidentally damaged his eardrum.
The young couple rushed into the emergency department of a hospital in the Hunan capital of Changsha after the man started suffering serious ear pain, according to Miaopai via Shanghaiist.
Out of embarrassment, the couple chose not to initially reveal what actually happened to the doctor.
Upon further questioning, however, the doctor finally found that the man’s ear pain started right after the young lady had “kissed” her beloved’s ear.
That must have been one overly passionate kiss as the doctor would later discover that the kiss had actually ruptured the man’s eardrum.
The incident prompted the doctor to advise couples against heavy ear play to avoid a similar eardrum-damaging tragedy.
A ruptured eardrum, which is basically a hole or tear in the thin tissue that separates your ear canal from your middle ear, can sometimes result in hearing loss and leave one’s middle ear vulnerable to infections or injury.
Fortunately, for our unnamed passionate lovers, a ruptured eardrum usually heals within a few weeks even without treatment. Although some cases require a procedure or surgical repair to heal.
