Docs Perform First Successful Penis Transplant

A 21-year-old man who lost his penis after circumcision regains all function within four months of surgery.

Doctors and nurses who performed the surgery.

Doctors have performed the world’s first successful penis transplant.

The nine-hour operation by surgeons in Cape Town offers hope to high numbers of South African men who lose their penises due to complications with traditional circumcision.

Experts thought the unnamed 21-year-old patient – who had to have his penis amputated three years ago after circumcision – would take two years to regain all function.

However, it has taken just four months for this to occur – resulting in December’s operation being declared a success.

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

It was led by Professor Andre van der Merwe, who said: “We are very surprised by his rapid recovery.

“It’s a massive breakthrough. We’ve proved that it can be done – we can give someone an organ that is just as good as the one that he had.

“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.”

The surgery has been attempted once before – but this is the first example of a successful long-term result.

Experts estimate as many as 250 penis amputations take place every year across South Africa.

“This is a very serious situation,” said Prof van der Merwe. “For a young man of 18 or 19 years, the loss of his penis can be deeply traumatic.

“He doesn’t necessarily have the psychological capability to process this. There are even reports of suicide among these young men.

“The heroes in all of this for me are the donor, and his family. They saved the lives of many people because they donated the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, skin, corneas, and then the penis.”

The transplant followed the path laid by the first facial transplant.

“We used the same type of microscopic surgery to connect small blood vessels and nerves, and the psychological evaluation of patients was also similar,” said Prof van der Merwe.

The procedure could eventually be extended to men who have lost their penises from penile cancer or as a last-resort treatment for severe erectile dysfunction.

“Sex Selfie Stick” Lets You Take Vagina Selfies, Just Like You’ve Always Wanted

When it comes to sexting, people with penises have it all too easy — as anyone who’s ever tried to hold a mirror up to their vagina in order to insert a tampon (or check for STIs, or whatever) can tell you, it’s incredibly difficult to maneuver visual devices down there, so I’d imagine getting a good picture of your undercarriage would be near impossible. But not anymore: the invention of the Svakom Gaga Camera Vibrator allows you to Facetime from inside your vagina, for when topless pics simply won’t cut it. Now you can get all up in your own business without having to contort your body into weird positions, or squat over the toilet with a hand mirror, because neither of those things are particularly fun or sexy.

The device basically looks like any other vibrator you might have, with the only differences being it has a camera attached to the end with lights surrounding it so you can take high-quality (and extremely intimate) photo fodder for sexts. You can take either pictures or videos, which can then be uploaded to your computer or smartphone. The vibrator also syncs with Facetime in case you want more face-to-face — er, vag — sexy times.

I’m going to go ahead and say that syncing pics of your privates to your phone or laptop sounds like a sex scandal waiting to happen, but hey, maybe I’m just paranoid. Although, admittedly, now I’m kind of curious to know how my vagina looks from the inside, so pros and cons, maybe?

And, I mean this could be a handy way for people to learn about their bodies in a safe and private way. As online vendor Lovehoney puts it:

Orgasms are an amazing display of passion and satisfaction, from muscle spasms and curling toes to clenched hands and heavy breathing, but have you ever wondered what happens inside the body during climax? The Svakom Gaga provides all the answers…

Yep, they got me, I officially want to know.

If the Svakom Gaga Camera Vibrator sounds like your next bedroom must-have, you can buy it online at Lovehoney for the low (?) price of £119.99 (approximately $184). It’s actually out of stock on their site until March 16, so it just goes to show you that there really is a market for vibrator/camera hybrids. Until then, I guess you’ll just have to settle for a flashlight and a self-timer? A regular selfie stick? Long and flexible arms? Whatever works for you, I guess.
