A British man born without a penis has been fitted with a bionic version.
I am so happy for this guy and I don’t even know him, no-one deserves to be born without a penis apart from this guy.
Andrew Wardle has successfully undergone the final stage of his £50,000 penis implant operation at London’s University College Hospital on Friday and “has been given the all-clear to finally lose his virginity” once a two-month recovery period is up, says the Daily Mail.
Wardle told the newspaper that he was more content with just feeling normal, as opposed to just wanting have sex with the first woman he saw.
“I’m very excited I can move on now,” he said. “But I think having sex for the first time is more of a big deal for everyone else than it is for me. I’ve spent 44 years without a penis and I’ve coped with not having sex for all that time.
“It will take me a while to get in the swing of things. I’m looking forward to it, but it’s not the be all and end all. It’s a by-product of the operation. It will enable me to feel part of society.”
Why Doesn’t He Have A Penis?
Wardle from Manchester was born with bladder exstrophy, which is a one-in-a-million deficiency. Whilst he does have testicles, he didn’t come equipped with a penis.
The bladder is left exposed “somewhere between the tummy button and the pubic bone”, and the urethra – which carries urine out from the bladder – does not form.
Wardle was put in touch by his GP with a urologist at University College Hospital, where a team of experts began working on the penile implant in 2015.
How does the bionic penis work?
The penis itself was built from the skin, muscles and nerves in Wardle’s left arm (meaning he genuinely will pleasure himself) and the vein from his right leg.
After complications which caused a three-year delay, doctors eventually inserted the reservoir component of his penile implant into the left side of his abdomen and sculpted the head of his new penis.
Inside the reservoir component will be an implant which can pump saline fluid into his penis to inflate for an erection.
As a test run, the 44-year-old “will have an erection for the next ten days before his implant is deflated”, says the Daily Mail. He will also be forced to wait 6 weeks before he can have intercourse with his long-term girlfriend , who we imagine is also excited.
Wardle is looking forward to life with his new member, saying: “I’m very aware there’s some robotics inside me but it feels a part of me now. I’m very aware that I am half-human, half-robot.
“I’m like the bionic man. I will even be able to perform if I am drunk.”
Hopefully, the doctors fully kitted him out with a member of considerable length, after all he has paid £50,000 for this luxury.
