When Brenda heard the news, truth about the botched circumcision she cut her hair and changed her name to David. In order to undo the changes David’s body had gone through as Brenda with estrogen therapy, he had a double mastectomy as well as surgeries to construct male genitals, and began receiving testosterone injections.

A Tale of Sex Science and Abuse

The Boy Who Was Raised as A Girl

On 22 August 1965 Janet Reimer was granted her dearest wish: she gave birth to twins. The two boys, Brian and Bruce, were healthy babies, but they would lead tragic lives, blighted by one scientist’s radical theory. Bruce would later rename himself David.

David Reimer was one of the most famous patients in the annals of medicine. The story of David is a terribly sad one. He had also been both a boy and a girl, thanks to one of the darker episodes in the history of pseudoscientific hubris. David was born as a boy named Bruce. He had an identical twin, Brian. David had to undergo a transformation that he had no say in when he was just a baby.

David, and his brother each had a minor medical problem involving his penis, and a doctor decided to treat the problem with circumcision. The doctor botched the circumcision on David, using an inappropriate method and accidentally burning off virtually David?s entire penis.?A malfunction in the doctor?s equipment (electrocautery needle) caused the needle to burn Reimer?s penis from tip to base.

The Reimers were left with a dilemma: a son with no penis. They visited several medical experts who assured them that penile reconstruction would prove worthless. The Reimers were at a loss as to how to help David.?Most of his penis was burned off, and reconstructive surgery was too primitive at the time to restore it. Dr. John Money, a sexologist at Johns Hopkins University, persuaded Reimer’s parents to have their son completely castrated and raised as a girl that they renamed Brenda.

David’s parents (farm adolescents barely out of their teens) were referred to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, home of the world’s leading expert in gender identity, psychologist Dr. John Money, who recommended a surgical sex change, from male to female. David’s parents eventually agreed to the radical procedure, believing Dr. Money’s claims that this was their sole hope for raising a child who could have heterosexual intercourse?albeit as a sterile woman with a synthetic vagina and a body feminized with estrogen supplements.

I knew it! Two new studies prove what we have always known

Another couple?to add to the list of totally useless studies.

So, if you have a nagging spouse it can be a bit depressing and it’s harder to get in the mood for something positive…stop the clock, who knew or could have seen that result. Ground breaking.

Being married can make people more prone to depression, a study reveals.

Constant nagging and domestic spats are significant triggers of long-term stress that cannot be outweighed by the positive aspects of wedlock, scientists found.

It can?also make husbands and wives far less responsive to positive experiences.

Previous research has shown married people are, in general, happier and healthier than singletons.

But an 11-year study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison poses a question mark over the decades of research linking single life to long-lasting social stress.

The researchers assessed a group of?married adults for depression, and gave them questionnaires to rate their stress on a six-point scale.

Nine years later, the questionnaire and depression assessments were repeated.

In year 11, the participants took part in ’emotional response testing’, measuring how quickly they can recover from a negative experience.

The test, commonly used to assess depression, monitors the frowning muscle – or, the corrugator supercilii.

Chop, chop, man not feeling cocky no more

A Chinese bloke who hacked off his own penis isn’t feeling so cocky anymore.

A Chinese man frustrated at being single cut off his own penis then, in agony, decided to cycle to a hospital for treatment.

When he arrived doctors told him they couldn’t help save his manhood and ordered him to cycle back home to get the penis before he could be treated.

When Yang Hu, 26, eventually arrived back at the hospital with the severed member, doctors told him that it had been without blood for too long, and it was impossible to reattach it.

Yang’s friends said that he had been increasingly depressed about the fact that since moving to the city he could not find a girlfriend. ? Read more »

Half an inch when fully reared, when lying down it disappeared

Tiny O’Toole aka Andrew Wardle is a dick-less wonder…really…he has no penis:

WITH his good looks and charming patter, it?s easy to see why Andrew Wardle is a hit with the ladies.

But while he has slept with more than 100 women, there is a secret he has kept from all his admiring pals ? he was born without a penis.

Andrew?s birth defect has caused him mental anguish, even driving him to the brink of suicide.

But now he is preparing for ground-breaking surgery which will see him become one of the first men in the world to have an entirely new penis built from his own arm.

Not a babies arm holding an apple then?

Andrew, from Stalybridge, Gtr Manchester, was born with an ectopic bladder, which meant it formed on the outside of his body.

Although he has testicles, he did not have a penis at all.

He had a successful op on his bladder but his birth defect remained.

His mum, who was just 17, was unable to cope and made the painful decision to give him up for adoption. Fortunately, Andrew was taken in by a loving couple from Wales.

Growing up he had countless kidney problems and infections and underwent 15 operations to build a tube from his bladder so he could pass water normally. Because he was in and out of hospital, he was bullied at school ? although, as he has done all his life, he managed to keep his big secret from his friends and classmates.

No penis? I think the word he is looking for is clitoris.

Andrew said: ?I could use the tube to use urinals and I could play football and rugby and ride my family?s horses

?I got used to hiding it. Apart from the operations, I could live like a normal lad my age.

?It was when I got into my teens and started getting interested in girls that it became a problem.?

Andrew started to become sexually attracted to girls but the only physical sensation he felt was butterflies in his stomach.

He had his first girlfriend at 17 and, as their relationship developed, he explained his situation to her.

She was understanding and they dated for four years, having a sexual relationship where Andrew was able to make sure she was satisfied.

I bet he needs a tongue transplant as well.

At 21 Andrew got a job at Butlins in Minehead, Somerset, and during that time he experimented with drugs such as ecstasy and LSD as a way of dealing with the psychological effects of being born without his manhood.

He said: ?By taking drugs I gave myself the perfect cover.

?I?d bed girls but said things could only go so far because the drugs meant I couldn?t rise to the occasion.

?I?ve been to bed with over 100 women. Some were one-night stands, some long-term relationships. I?ve told 20 per cent of them the truth.

?The fact I didn?t just want to get my leg over made me more attractive to women. I had charm and patter because it wasn?t all about sex.?

But Andrew, whose work as a bartender, chef and security guard meant he moved around Spain and Eastern Europe, faced some negative reactions when he revealed he could not have sex.

He said: ?One girl actually punched me in the face! Another girl I lived with for a year cheated on me. Whenever I told them it was a bit of a passion killer. It was horrible, I took more drugs to block out my feelings and they made me more depressed.

?I never went to the doctor, I didn?t think they could do anything.?

Punched in the face for having no dick, well I never. Obviously all those chick have never heard about Cactus’ tried and true toilet test and bar grab.

Andrew saw a specialist at University College London who carried out tests to see if he was suitable for surgery.

He said: ?Thankfully I was and they agreed to operate.

?I didn?t realise quite how rare being born with no penis was until doing my own research and discovering it affects only one in 20 million men.?

It’s not that rare being born without a penis, 50% of the population are born without a penis and they seem to cope quite well…except for the bunny boilers.

Does Gerry pass? Parekura? David?

Apparently a third of men are so fat they can’t see their cocks:

A shocking 33 per cent of 35 to 60-year-olds are so overweight that their manhood is hidden from sight when they stand upright and look downwards.

The figures show more than 5.6million men in Britain are potentially dangerously overweight and risk knocking up to nine years off their lifespan through strokes, diabetes and heart disease.

Meanwhile a staggering 44 per cent of those aged between 51 and 60 fail the ?spot the penis? test, says the research.

Obese men who are unable see their penises are said to be five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes and three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon.

Website WeLoveOurHealth.co.uk commissioned the survey of 1,000 men and has now launched the ?Big Check? Campaign, backed by leading medical professionals.

The DIY health measurement encourages men to check if they can see their penis beyond their bulbous bellies.
