A medical team in South Africa has successfully performed a penis transplant. And, yes, it is fully function.

The patient, a 21-year-old whose name is being withheld for ethical reasons, underwent the procedure on December 11, 2014. Three months later, his new member is now completely functional.

“Our goal was that he would be fully functional at two years and we are very surprised by his rapid recovery,” says Prof André van der Merwe, head of Stellenbosch University’s Division of Urology.

This is a very important breakthrough for the medical community around the world, but especially so in South Africa. In SA, many young men lose their penises from botched circumcisions. The 21-year-old patient’s penis had to be amputated three years ago when he developed severe complications. It is estimated that there as many as 250 amputations a year in South Africa. Understandably, this can cause psychological damage to the amputees.… Read the rest

Surely designer crucidicks are on your Christmas wish list? Or not, perhaps, if you are one of the outraged Christians protesting the new Tom Ford penis pendant, as reported by Christian Post:

Flamboyant fashion designer Tom Ford sparked outrage recently following the launch of his new collection of phallic crucifix necklaces.

The pendant is shaped like a phallus and resembles a crucifix. Outraged Christians have blasted the unusual jewelry as “blasphemous,” with some even calling it an attack on Christianity.

The necklace is available in either silver or 18-karat white gold, according to Ford’s website, and it comes in small, medium and large sizes. It is priced at $790 and has come just in time for Christmas, which has fueled even more outrage.

“This, ladies and gents, is the epitome of blasphemy against Christ Jesus,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Just in time for Christmas, a way to say “screw Christ,” the Savior of the World.

Are Condoms As We Know Them a Way of the Past?

via The Daily Beast:

There are only so many ways to wrap a penis in plastic, but that hasn’t stopped a new crop of prophylactic engineers from trying to exhaust them all.

Condoms remain one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and yet, according to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior conducted by Indiana University, only 1 in 3 acts of vaginal intercourse among single people in the U.S. are protected by a condom. In their early teens, the survey found, men use condoms 80 percent of the time but by age 18, their condom use falls below 50 percent.

Why is such a simple countermeasure against headache and disease still so unpopular? And what can be done to make the humble condom more appealing? That was the question the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation asked last year, when they put out a call to inventors, asking them to build better, more affordable, but mostly more pleasurable condoms.

The Holy Prepuce

Григорий Распутин (1914-1916).jpg

Grigori Rasputin

I just don’t know how to introduce an essay about Christ’s foreskin, known as the Holy Prepuce, so take it away Stassa Edwards at The New Inquiry:

Europe’s history of penis worship was cast aside when the Catholic Church decided Jesus’s foreskin was too potent to control.

Grigori Rasputin’s dick is on display at the Museum of Erotics in Saint Petersburg. Housed in a jar of formaldehyde, the member, which the museum’s owner claims he obtained from a French antiquarian, is quite sizable. Actually, it’s enormous for a human penis: Wide and meaty, it measures about a foot long. According to the museum, just gazing on the preserved member can cure a range of problems, everything from infertility to a humdrum sex life. But the specimen isn’t a human penis. It more than likely came from a horse.

It wouldn’t be the first time something inhuman was passed off as Rasputin’s dick.

Scientists: The Bigger the Meat, The More Likely She’ll Cheat

Well, they didn’t exactly put it that way, but…

Via Huffington Post:

Contrary to popular belief, a new study out of Kenya found that husbands with larger penises were more likely to be cheated on by their wives (shocking, we know).

For the study — published this month in PLOSOne — researchers interviewed 545 married couples in Kenya in order to better understand their relationship habits and, more specifically, to identify factors which contributed to women having extramarital affairs.

Researchers asked both partners to self-report the male’s erect penis size (they had a 15 inch ruler on hand for reference). Then, if there were differences between the estimates (which there were), they either took the average of the two or went with the estimate from the partner who was less likely to fib.

What they found was rather shocking:

“Every one inch longer penis increased the likelihood of women being involved in extra-marital partnership by almost one-and-half times,” the researchers wrote.

Bad news for Andre “Christ Bearer” Johnson: The Wu-Tang Clan affiliated (or maybe not*) rapper cut his penis off before leaping from the balcony of his second-story North Hollywood home, and doctors are not going to be able to reattach it.

Via New York Daily News:

The Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated rapper who cut off his penis before leaping off the second-floor balcony of his North Hollywood apartment has lost the appendage for good, according to a report.

Andre Johnson — who raps under the name Christ Bearer — was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after he apparently flayed himself during the bizarre suicide bid early Wednesday, TMZ reported.

Rumors about Napoleon’s supposed teeny peeny have circulated for years. According to the Independent, the rumors are true, but how would they be able to tell unless it was somehow preserved at full salute? For that matter, are we even sure that this little guy belonged to Napoleon? Did it come with a certifi-dick of authenticity? Oh, speaking of famous phalli, Russian mystic Rasputin’s was supposedly a foot long. Click here for an NSFW pic of what is alleged to be his monster wang.

Via The Independent:

Poor Napoleon. Nearly two centuries after his death, it has been confirmed that the French military and political leader had a “very small” penis, measured at a modest one-and-a-half inches.

In what sounds like a very morbid, yet compelling, new Channel 4 series, Dead Famous DNA aims to find the remains of history’s most famous figures – from Hitler’s hair and Elvis’s DNA to Napoleon and his penis.
