Berlin man raising money for an erection he says won’t go away

Danny Polaris, a Welsh queer performance artist and sex and health columnist living in Berlin, has been in medical care since late July suffering from the effects of taking an erection enhancing drug alongside other medications, the reaction to which could have ended his life. It is still unclear when he will be able to leave the hospital or if he will suffer possible permanent damage.

In order to warn others of a similar physical reaction, Danny described to GCN the series of events which lead to his hospital admittance.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help him speed up his recovery and pay for future specialised treatment.

Thank you everyone for all your messages, support and donations. I want to be extra clear – although my hospital bills are covered by my medical insurance, I still need support for rehabilitation and recovery costs, travel costs and filling the gap left by two weeks (and counting) of being in hospital, unable to do my day job, write freelance and perform. I'm going to keep track of the money I spend as I think it's important to be transparent about these things. I'm happy I've been able to shine a light on the taboo subject of priapisms and I hope that lots of you will now be able to avoid the agonizingly painful and psychologically traumatic times I've had to go through these past few weeks. Love, light and hope to you all, Danny xx #erection #priapism #gaymen #menshealth #queermen #instagay #queerberlin #loveandlight #hope #faith
