Rabbits get new penises
November 11, 2009

SCIENTISTS in the US have engineered artificial penises in rabbits using cells from the animals to grow tailor-made organs, with some rabbits hopping to it and fathering baby rabbits within months.

Reported online in the current Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers say the findings represent one of the most complete replacements of functional penile erectile tissue to date.

Within six weeks of having the lab-grown penises grafted on, the male bunnies were using their new organ to breed like the proverbial, with four of 12 female rabbits falling pregnant.

Co-author of the study Anthony Atala said the findings could one day enable surgeons to reconstruct and restore function to damaged or diseased penile tissue in men. But David Leavesley, a cell biologist from the Queensland University of Technology, said that could still be decades off.

Now if they could figure out how to grow a pair of balls, they could fix all the problems in Congress.
