Man With Bionic Penis Rushed To Hospital 'After Having Sex For The First Time'

A man who was born without a penis has been rushed to hospital 'just weeks after having sex for the first time'.

Andrew Wardle, from Manchester, was born with a rare condition which meant he didn't have a penis and has spent most of his life a virgin.

But earlier this year he underwent a £50,000 procedure at University College Hospital London to surgically implant a 'bionic penis' onto his body.

Andrew, 45, uses a button in his groin to inflate the organ with saline fluid through a valve, which allows him to have intercourse.

At the time he told the press he was over the moon with his new appendage and couldn't wait to finally do the deed with his 28-year-old girlfriend, Fedra Fabian.

Andrew told the Sun: "I'm so pleased with it. It's fantastic.

"After what Fedra and I have been through, it's the cherry on the cake."

Following the successful operation, the couple had even said they were planning to now have children and start a family together.

But just a couple of weeks since he popped his cherry, it has been announced that Andrew has been rushed to hospital after collapsing, with concerns his manhood may be at fault.

Andrew was in a coma for five days and surgeons will now remove his gall bladder when he undergoes surgery.

His publicist Barry Tomes told the MailOnline that his partner was 'terrified'.

He said: "He had a fever for days and was vomiting.

"Fedra rang to say she had found him unconscious. She was terrified. She has no family here to rely on.

"It's been quite terrifying. Their biggest worry was that the damage had been caused by having sex."

Andrew was born with a rare condition called bladder exstrophy, which affects one in 40,000 and means the organ that usually sits inside the pelvis, is exposed.

Though he was born with testicles, the condition means he has no penis and underwent a number of operations over several years to build his appendage.

But Andrew isn't the only man to have had to go through this kind of surgery.

A man who was badly injured in a car crash as a child has discussed how he lost his virginity to a sex worker almost 40 years later.

Mohammad Abad was lucky to be alive after he had to be dragged around 600 yards under a car as a six-year-old.

He was given a fleshy tube in place of his penis in the wake of the incident, although later in life it became apparent that this made it impossible for him to have sex.

But after undergoing extensive surgery, the 44-year-old announced earlier this month that he had finally been able to have sex for the first time, with sex worker Charlotte Rose.
