I thought this had already been achieved.

As a man I'm not sure how I would feel about this but definatley another medical feat accomplished.

I was rather disturbed to realise the recipiant lost the member after complications with a circumsision.

That must make for an awkward conversation with the deceased's loved ones.

"I'm so sorry for your loss and there is never an appropriate time to ask this but... we have a patient who really needs a new penis, so..."

Interesting, given how much psychological factors govern function of a penis I wonder if it would bring its own set of problems.

Men often laugh and say of their manhood 'It has a mind of its own!'

What if it really did......and someone elses mind at that!

All joking aside I imagine there must be some pretty intense counciling to go with this proceedure.

It also make you wonder if the size of the replacement is taken into consideration?

You can imagine the doctor

From this red-letter day forward men around the world will be saving their money for "The Operation". Two for the price of one?

The old urban legend of waking up in a bath of ice in (insert dodgy city) with a scar where your kidney should be, will have to be upgraded to something even more disturbing.

Experts thought the unnamed 21-year-old patient - who had to have his penis amputated three years ago after circumcision ...

So he was eighteen when he was circumcised? First-world doctors usually perform the procedure on a newly born child. I wonder if this is common in African culture.


The surgery was five years in the planning at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital.


Wait ... the man only lost his penis three years ago but the doctors have been planning the surgery for five? They must be psychic.

I wondered the same thing about his age, more than likley it is a medical reason as opposed to a cultural one.

As to the 5 year planning I imagine they started planning and then waited for a paitient.

Funny, there was a couple of articles I've seen over the last week on social media talking about "Who has the biggest" amongst different countries in the world.

I guess if we suddenly start militarily occupying certain countries in the world, Like the Congo, or a few other places, we will know why..

Napoleon's penis was auctioned off for £3,000 ... But I guess transplantation of it would be out of the question ... being only 1 1/2 inches may also be a consideration

" How is Napoleon’s “item” still in circulation? Apparently, it was cut off during his autopsy by his somewhat cruel doctor, Francesco Autommarchi, in front of 17 witnesses, before it was then acquired by priest Abbé Anges Paul Vignali who gave the leader his last rites. It passed through Vignali’s family before it was eventually bought by American rare books dealer A.S.W. Rosenbach in 1924 and then displayed at the Museum of French Art in New York in 1927."

What a heck of a procedure to get done, I wonder how it feels? Like, sensation wise for both parts? Hope the guy was given a little extra to make up for the changeover plan.
Makes me remember this gem of routine from Karl Pilkington and Ricky Gervais, slight language warning - but strangely makes you wonder what it must be like for the gentleman involved when it comes to the things people do.
