Scientists Successfully Grow Penises for Injured Rabbits
18 years in the making, Dr Antony Atala’s mission to produce healthy functioning penises for patients suffering from penile cancer, major penile injuries and erectile dysfunction has successfully been achieved. Although still early in his studies, Dr Atala and his team of researchers have successfully managed to grow penises for injured rabbits using smooth muscle cells (which help penis tissues to relax during an erection) and endothelial cells (which line blood vessels) extracted from tissue samples.
Performed at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, Dr Atala designed a 3 dimensional penis shaped scaffold to help mould the growth of these tissues to ensure that when they were attached to their male hosts, they would help them to mate, ejaculate and ultimately procreate. And according to popular medical journal ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences’, this endeavour has proven to be every bit of a success!
Growing these rabbit penises over a 3-4 week period, once these 12 rabbits had been given enough time to recover from having their penises replaced with their engineered counterparts, their mating habits were observed one month, three months and six months after the surgery. However, within their first encounter with these female rabbits, all 12 attempted to mate with them – 8 of whom managed to ejaculate and 4 of whom successfully managed to impregnate the females.
Although it will be a long time before this research is safe enough to be implemented on people, Dr Atala’s published findings definitely suggest that it is possible to help men strengthen the health of their penises.
Are there any other penile medical products out there?
Search the web and you’ll quickly find that the penile market is saturated with a variety of different medical products that claim to help men enlarge, strengthen and improve their penile health. Of all the methods out there, the ones that can offer you the safest route are jelqing exercises, traction devices and medication.
Used for centuries to help men attain boosted penile increases and harder erections, Jelqing involves a 20-30 minute exercise routine consisting of 300 different exercises. Unfortunately jelqing is only a temporary solution, and despite being proven to help lengthen your penis by 1-1.5inches, to maintain these results requires constant training.
There are many penile pills/herbal supplements on the market that claim to treat erectile dysfunction; however only through the utilisation of legitimate medications such as Viagra, can you expect to experience credible results in terms of penile strengthening, support and harder erections.
Designed to promote increased smooth muscle relaxation, increase blood flow and harder erections through the release of nitric oxide; Viagra has recreationally earned itself a reputation for helping men to:
- increase their libido
- improve their sexual performance
- permanently increase their penis size
However, similar to Jelqing the results of Viagra are only temporary and can last for up to a few hours depending on the dosage you take.
