Great Lagomorph Lingams! That Rabbit's Got a Brand New Penis!

Bunny_chicken If my e-mail spam folder is any indication, humans are obsessed with the length, girth, and efficacy (see also: the ability to "subdue se7ven w0men w 1 blow") of the male penis. Medications, manual pumps, visual stimuli, and animals driven to endangerment in the name of longer, harder, faster can try as they might, but all the tadalafil in the world can't fix what's truly broke, which is why science has taken it one step further and created artificial rabbit penises.

The difficult search for a successful process of penis reconstruction is complicated by the "...complex structure and the intricate cellular interactions needed to make it work properly," and, until recently, natural erectile function was not restored when damaged or diseased penises were treated with a variety of experimental restorative surgeries. Researcher Anthony Atala, director of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center's Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., whose team has already created lab-grown human bladders and implanted them in seven men, may have recently changed all that.

Rather than using transplanted tissue, in Atala's process:

...cells are taken from an organ and sprayed onto a frame made of collagen, the primary structural protein in animal tissue. The structure is then bathed with growth-stimulating compounds and kept in an oven that duplicates the body’s temperature and chemical composition.

Given these starting conditions, natural biology does the rest. The cells divide and arrange themselves in natural, working configurations.

Apparently, the test rabbits took quite well to their bioengineered neocorpora, because every single one of them popped a working bunny boner within one minute of being introduced to female rabbits and then tried to copulate. This means that they were actually more lustful than the control rabbits who hadn't received artificial penises. Even more promising is that eight of the twelve couplings showed evidence of sperm, and four of the female rabbits became pregnant and produced healthy offspring.

This treatment has the potential to be used not only to repair damaged penises but also to enhance the penises of men who would prefer a slightly larger endowment. All those ridiculous promises delivered to my e-mail's spam folder like "Gr8ter schl0ngs 4 Everone" might prove to be not so outlandish after all.
