Foreign bodies in the lower urinary tract are rare with self-infliction for sexual gratification as the commonest reason. Presenting complaints are lower urinary tract symptoms, abdominal pain, and haematuria. We report two cases of self-inflicted foreign bodies in the lower urinary tract of adult male patients; one by an electrical wire and another by Bengal grams. Bengal gram as the foreign body has never been reported previously. X-ray, ultrasound, and computed tomography of the KUB region help to confirm the diagnosis. The primary goals of treatment are safe removal of foreign bodies, avoiding iatrogenic injuries to the lower urinary tract, and preservation of the sexual function. Endoscopic management is the commonest procedure performed and described in such cases. We were able to manage both cases endoscopically. Psychiatric consultation and appropriate counselling should be given to prevent further repetitions of such acts in the future.
