Having a giant, angry bull ram its horns through your flesh is nightmare material for most people, but try telling that to 39-year-old American Matthew Levin, who got gored in the thigh this week at the Running of the Bulls at Pamplona’s San Fermin festival and loved every second of it.

Speaking from his hospital bed in Pamplona, Matthew says:
All in all it’s been one of the best experiences of my life.
I was running and I got caught up in some human traffic, I turned and saw the bull heading towards me and I just thought ‘run faster, get out of the way’, I had about three four strides to get away but I guess I didn’t get out of the way quick enough.
I knew I had been punctured but at that moment the adrenaline was so great that it didn’t really hurt as much as it should have done. I didn’t realize it was so bad.
Er, yeah mate. Sounds like a really awesome time. You know what’s more fun than getting gored in the leg by a bull though? NOT getting gored in the leg by a bull. Just the opinion of any sane person who doesn’t have a death wish.
Here are some photos from the event thus far – pure and utter carnage:
Could’ve been worse though – he could’ve had his tiny cock exposed to the world like this poor guy did:
