World of Wonder: It’s not just drag queens, party monsters, and cut-throat real estate agents!
Three WOW cult classics – Chopped Off: The Man Who Lost His Penis, The Perfect Penis, and The World’s Biggest Penis – have been repeating on UK C4 and doing very well, and winning over a whole new generation of viewers.
Knob, dick, tool, John Thomas, spam javelin, schlong, the sergeant with the one blue stripe who loves to stand to attention: You’d be surprised how little you know about the skin chimney. Although many men may brag, people rarely talk about the little chap. In this unique trilogy of frank documentaries we examine the myths, the realities and the stories behind the last taboo.
Watch clips from the shows below.
Chopped Off: Then Man Who Lost His Penis – What happened to John Wayne Bobbitt after he got sliced and diced? It’s been a long road for John Wayne since 1993, when his Ecuadorian wife, Lorena, took a Ginsa knife to his manhood in the middle of the night, driving off with his severed penis and chucking it in a field. Police managed to retrieve the thing and surgeons re-attached little John to big John. And then John Wayne ‘Frankenpenis’ Bobbitt’s story really began. This is a tale with many twists: from porn career (‘Frankenpenis’) to failed stand up comedian); a brief stint as a minister in a Las Vegas church; limo driver for a brothel; a prison sentence and a botched penis enlargement. This documentary hangs out with man with the world’s most talked about penis and discovers that even now, as a simple furniture removal man, his life is as dramatic as ever.
The Perfect Penis – In search of perfection, by any means necessary. For some men, bigger – whether by mechanical, herbal or surgical means – will always be better. This film meets the men desperate for extreme surgery to give them what nature hasn’t, and those for whom the unregulated world of penis enlargement surgery has produced agonising results. In Moscow a pioneering Russian surgeon shows us an enlargement operation that sees the penis grafted on to the human arm, and which he hopes to market as the new “cure” for small men everywhere. And, just when you thought it was safe to unzip your trousers, meet the man with a truly enormous penis for whom bigger can never be big enough.
The World’s Biggest Penis – the bittersweet gift of having what every man wants! No doubt about it, society celebrates the big penis. Seen as a sign of adequacy, virility and manliness, those lucky enough to be well endowed are heralded by both sexes and all sexualities. As women have always maintained, and men have always thought, size matters, but not in the way that most of us imagine. Sometimes having a Big Johnson is a bigger problem than you’d guess. The World’s Biggest Penis reveals there is a bittersweet side to nature’s gift, lifting the veil on a taboo subject and showing the reality of what it’s like to have what all men dream of.
