Good News, Everyone! Penis Transplants Are Possible Now



Five years in the planning, nine hours of surgery and four months to regain function – but now a South African man who lost his penis in a botched childhood circumcision is no longer dicked over.

“There is a greater need in South Africa for this type of procedure than elsewhere in the world, as many young men lose their penises every year due to complications from traditional circumcision.”

I look forward to Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi take on the topic.

I also wonder how long it’ll be before we get certain actors or celebrities doing this surgery optionally because they found a larger donor. I mean, can you imagine the bidding war when Ron Jeremy dies?
