World’s First Penis Transplant Is A Success!

Good news everyone, the world’s first successful penis transplant was performed in South Africa in December. But I guess it took them that long to see if this was the real deal and … it was!

The surgery was performed on a 21-year-old man who lost his penis after a botched circumcision (something that the boys of the indigenous Xhosa tribe undergo during their coming of age rituals).

The unnamed man has regained all reproductive and urinary properties in his penis. Yay science! [People]
