Here are some embarrassing questions the uk has listed in the event of a horrific attack on the phallus. Severing the penis without removing the testicles is said to cause intense sexual frustration, since all urges and sex drive come from the testicles and, short of a penis, the unfortunate chap in question has no way to satisfy them.
Besides the obvious, the acute pain that occurs at the time, there are other more lasting issues.
A Chinese study of 50 men who underwent reattachment surgery found that all but one achieved full functionality again. In some cases reattachment is not an option and a new penis, made from tissue grafted from another part of the body, must be made.
While most certainly a scientific breakthrough, the reconstructed penis is not a popular option with patients with problems reported with both appearance and functionality. Obviously a pretty important issue - in the Chinese study all but one of the patients recovered full functionality with some reportedly going on to father children after the removal. While other issues may be more prevalent, how a person can go to the toilet is still one of the most important post-penis removal.
