Urethral insertion of magnetic beads is sporadically described in literature and is reported in mostly young males. The primary reason for this act, is sexual pleasure. Recently, two cases of young males were seen, who inserted a magnetic bead string in the urethra for sexual stimulation. Due to magnetism, transurethral removal of these beads can be difficult. Foreign bodies in the bladder could cause LUTS or urinary tract infections. However, not all patients will report this sexual act due to embarrassment. Therefore, one should consider a foreign body as a primary cause of LUTS or recurrent urinary tract infections in young males.
