If the title alone of this article doesn’t have you retching in anticipation, be warned, things are about to get a lot worse. I like to think I have a pretty strong stomach, but the story of one man not washing his pecker in 24 years is enough to have me reaching for the sick bucket.
Whatever you might or might know as you enter adulthood, maintaining your own personal hygiene is one of the first things we learn as a child. However, it seems that not everyone is as well-versed on keeping their private parts squeaky clean, which has led to one of the most disgusting pieces of TV I’ve seen in a long time.
I don’t know what our obsession with shows like Embarrassing Bodies is (or a habit of watching while we’re eating), and yet, thousands of us tune in for these shows every week. This time, let’s spare a moment for Zach on The Sex Clinic. In typical E4 fashion, the new show had us fascinated and repulsed at the same time.
As Zach visited Dr. Naomi Sutton, he explained his visit was due to a “bad smell” coming from his downstairs. After being in pain for the last nine months, Zach decided to seek professional help in front of the baying general public.
While Sutton explained the build-up of “smegma” on the tip of his penis, Zach went on to confirm this isn’t the only penis problems he’s had. Saying he’d “had the clap”, Zach confirmed he’d “caught gonorrhea from some lass, too”.
In the end, Sutton’s advice was to give it “a good wash” in future — groundbreaking TV at its finest here.
I’m not alone in my horror. Viewers soon ran to Twitter to express their own emotions after watching Zack’s tale of the tallywacker.

We watched The Sex Clinic on E4 last night and there was a guy who didn’t know that he should be washing his penis. I can’t stop thinking about this 🤦♂️

Too far this poor lad on ‘The Sex Clinic’ has just been told his willy basically needs a good wash 😩🤣

How can you be 24 and not know how to wash your own penis properly?! I know how to do it and I don’t even have one 😂 #TheSexClinic

Thankfully, it seems like it’s finally dawned on Zach he’s been doing it wrong — or not at all — for the past 24 years.
Now that we’ve recovered, let’s talk about the importance of The Sex Clinic. When we don’t have our heads down the toilet, throwing up about Zach, the show’s main aim is to educate us on everything from safe sex to STIs. I’m just hoping I’ve managed to eat my dinner before next week’s episode comes on.
