A Bionic Penis
I think this is an interesting story about science and technology with regard to sexuality and intimacy. It’s a good example of how something like this can change a man’s life completely.
Mohammed Abad’s story has captured the interest of the world.
The lovelorn security guard, who was fitted with a £70,000 eight-inch bionic penis in 2012, lost his virginity this year at the age of 44 with the help of a sex worker.
And while he would still like to find true love and eventually have children, he is delighted to evangelize about the ‘sexnology’ that has allowed him to feel like a man again.
You can read all the details at this link. There’s actually a pretty good description detailing how all this works.
The “Ideal” Penis
I know this story isn’t exactly breaking science news, but I did pass up linking to a story about a Kardashian who has never seen a white penis, as if we care. So there’s that.
In any event, here’s a link to a video where porn stars talk about the ideal penis.
Sure, porn stars are forced to work with larger-than-average “talent” throughout their careers, but what do they do recreationally? Do they enjoy having giant bulldozers normally, or do they prefer to work with more manageable-sized man parts?
You can check that out here. I think this one is SFW.
First American Penis Transplant
On another note, here’s a link that’s far more serious and details an actual penis transplant. It’s really something that’s valid, both physically and emotionally, and it shows how doctors deal with a devastating military case where the guy lost his penis in combat. I think things like this are relevant mostly because we don’t hear about them on the local six o’clock news. They’re all too busy putting a spin on politics…and fake-smiling too much.
This excerpt shows what I’m talking about…
Doctors will perform 60 such surgeries on combat veterans – and more than 60 additional men are already on the waitlist to have the procedure performed. Johns Hopkins will pay for the first surgery, which it estimates to cost between $200,000 and $400,000, and it has asked the government to chip in for subsequent operations. The Department of Veterans Affairs will pay for the cocktail of anti-rejection medicines the men must take once the surgery has been performed.
