Virgin Gets Bionic Penis After Childhood Tragedy
Life has been hard for Mohammed Abad.
The 43-year-old virgin from Edinburgh, Scotland, “lost all of my genitals” when he was hit by a car and dragged 600 feet at just 6 years old, The Sun reports.
Thirty-seven years later, he got a new lease on life — and sex — after surgeons at University College London gave him an 8-inch bionic penis. Using a button in his scrotum, Abad can now inflate his new manhood with fluids from an implant in his belly.
“When you want a bit of action you press the ‘on’ button, and when you are finished you press another button. It takes seconds,” he told The Sun.
It took doctors three years and dozens of operations to craft and attach a new member, molded using skin grafts from his arm. The final operation last month took 11 hours.
Now he’s looking for love.
“Some ladies might want to try it out,” he said.
In 2013, Abad appeared on a news segment called “Embarrassing Bodies,” where he said that the “penis” he had after accident — which was a little over 2 inches — was completely numb, according to The Daily Mail.
Of course, Abad’s not the first person to get a new sense of pride.
An unidentified South African man received the world’s first penis transplant last year is doing well and expecting a child, Reuters reported.
