Well here's a sticky situation.

A 25-year-old man in India has died from the injuries that ensued after he glued his penis shut before having sex so that he wouldn't have to wear a condom.

Salman Mirza was in the midst of a drug-fueled bender with his girlfriend at the time.

Shortly after arriving at the hotel in the city of Juhapura for their bender with a third unnamed woman, Mirza and his girlfriend realized they'd forgotten to bring any condoms.

A local senior police officer explained to The Times of India:

"Several witnesses said that Mirza along with his former fiancée, both of whom were addicted to drugs, had gone to a hotel in Juhapura."
"Since they did not have any protection, they decided to apply the adhesive on his private parts to ensure that she does not get pregnant."

The couple had the strong epoxy adhesive, along with a whitening solution, with them because they occasionally inhaled the chemicals to get high.

Mirza was found unconscious the following day in a bed of shrubberies outside an apartment building by an acquaintance, who took him home. His condition quickly worsened over the course of the day, however, and he was taken to Sola Civil Hospital in the Fatehwadi region where he lives. There, he died of multiple organ failure.

Police believe Mirza's use of the glue worsened his already weak condition, contributing to the organ failure and leading to his death.

Mirza's family has called for an inquiry into the incident, because they claim that it was either Mirza's girlfriend or the unnamed third woman who accompanied the couple into the hotel who applied the epoxy glue to his penis. Police have since launched an accidental death investigation, and are awaiting reports from forensic evaluations of Mirza's tissue samples.

On Twitter, this story drew wide interest for, um, obvious reasons.

So there you have it: If you were wondering if glue was a suitable substitute for contraception, the answer is, um, absolutely unequivocally please-never-do-this NO.
