Cancer Survivor Travels The World Looking For A New Penis In New Documentary

Cancer Survivor Travels The World Looking For A New Penis In New Documentary

A new Channel 5 documentary follows a man travelling the world in search of a new penis after losing his to cancer.

The show, called Shopping For A New Penis, follows 54-year-old Richard Stamp as he looks at the ways his penis can be rebuilt and reconstructed.

Richard - who works in the entertainment industry - suffered in silence for months, enduring a lot of pain before he was finally diagnosed with cancer in 2018.

Unfortunately, because they didn't discover it quick enough, he ended up losing most of the organ, but now he's setting off to get it back.

His journey sees him investigate plastic penises, prosthetic penises, and even ones grown in laboratories. Eventually, he decided to have reconstruction.

That's gonna take a lot of surgery, but he's willing to go through it to feel like he's whole again.

Speaking about the reconstruction, he told the Mirror: "It's weird. I want it to feel like me, not an object. I'm a bit scared, it's like something off Doctor Who from the 70s."

Richard now speaks for men's cancer charity Orchid and wants people to learn from his past and get themselves checked early.

He said: "It's such a taboo thing to talk about and to experience, and when I found I had penile cancer, I had no idea it even existed.

"So the message to every man watching this documentary is if there's something up, get it checked."

During the show, Richard even discusses his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Angie, and how it broke down after his diagnosis.

He explains how sex became painful and something he came to avoid.

Richard continued: "It built up over time. Why I wasn't having penetration was because it really hurt, so I started feeling more vulnerable."

Richard said: "I met this frightening doctor who, very starkly, said, 'Your c**k's going to come off.'

"He showed me a model of a c**k, like I was some sort of a farm animal.

"It was so cold. All that went through my mind was panic.

He flew back to London, and received surgery on his penis to amputate much of it.

He said: "I remember before the operation, thinking, 'I'm going to run away.'

"Then the realisation is where am I going to run to? If I don't do this, I'm going to die.

"Maybe it sounds crazy if you're not a bloke, but living without a penis makes you question who you are.

"I'm really angry I let it get that far. I feel a complete fool. I could kick myself because I could have saved it."

It's not all bad news though, as he can still orgasm, although being intimate does still present challenges.

He added: "I was grateful I could still orgasm, but then I had to work out how to do that with a partner, how to share my new body with someone.

"But some women don't mind."

Shopping For A New Penis airs on Channel 5 at 10pm tonight (27 August).
