ghostgeek: A supposed trend of penis whitening has captivated Thailand in recent days and left it asking if the country's beauty industry is taking things too far.
Skin whitening is nothing new in many Asian countries, where darker skin is often associated with outdoor labour, therefore, being poorer.
But even so, when a clip of a clinic's latest intriguing procedure was posted online, it quickly went viral.
Thailand's health ministry has since issued a warning over the procedure.
The BBC Thai service spoke to one patient who had undergone the treatment, who told them: "I wanted to feel more confident in my swimming briefs".

One has to suppose that the chap's briefs are very brief indeed for it to make a difference.
