TLC documentary on man without penis will shed light on this rare condition


Andrew Wardle was born without a penis. And yet somehow, inexplicably, he has still managed to be with 100 women sexually. Quite a feat. A new documentary will explore his life, and now, his plan to actually have a penis made from skin grafts from his arm. Crazy.

The 40-year-old British man was born with a rare defect called penile agenesis. Apparently 1 in every 5 to 6 million births has this condition. What it means in layman’s terms is he has no penis. Can you even imagine? In the new documentary set to air on TLC, Wardle and his girlfriend both discuss what it has meant to them and their relationship to have him lack a penis.

Out of all his sexual conquests, Wardle claims to have only told 20 percent of them about his condition. According to him, one woman punched him in the face.

Though I can’t quite imagine that reaction (and it is still a mystery as to how he managed to fool them with penetration), I can imagine the pain of being with a man who can’t fully penetrate during sex. At least not in that way.

On the other hand, what about lesbians? See a bit more about the documentary below:

The fact is, sexual intercourse isn’t the only way to show affection and to be sexual. If it were, no lesbian relationships would work out. There are strap-ons and dildoes and fingers and tongues and my guess is that a man without penis would have to become pretty adept at using those parts.

Sexual intercourse is wonderful, but it’s not the only game in town. I hope people are able to be creative and I hope this poor man is able to reclaim his masculinity and feel good about himself. It’s hard to imagine a life without a penis. But it’s not just a penis that makes a man.
