Sex

This poor dude getting a bionic penis must endure a TWO WEEK long boner first

No pain, no, er... pleasure?

Andrew Wardle.

Talk about having a hard time. Er, sorry.

A UK man who was born without a penis is finally getting a bionic replacement... but not without some hard-ship. (Sorry, we know.)

Andrew Wardle was born without a penis due to a rare condition called bladder exstrophy, where his bladder formed on the outside of his body. After having this corrected, Andrew went through 40 years of his life without a leg to stand on... so to speak. But, after reading about a British man who was grafted a bionic penis in 2012 using experimental technology, Wardle began his journey to getting himself one.

Now, more than 100 surgeries later, Andrew's robo-penis is finally ready for take-off. With one small caveat.

Andrew's new penis is made from skin, muscle and nerves from his own arm and, whilst it's technically ready to use, the doctors need to give it a little jump-start first. The penis, which is 'turned on' (wink face) by pressing a small pump in Andrew's ball sac, needs to be, er, 'activated' first. This activation process will cost Wardle a three day-long hospital stay and a two week-long boner.

Let us repeat: a TWO. WEEK. LONG. BONER.

Unfortunately, Andrew's experience will be a little hard-core (forgive us. Please), but, ultimately, worth it. After 40 years, Andrew will finally get to have sex with his long-term girlfriend — who, by the way, didn't know about her boyfriend's condition (or lack thereof) until they had dated for nine months.

Best of luck to them (they're gonna neeeeddd ittttt).
