Born This Way!

Sometimes it’s not too lucky to be one of a million…and even less lucky to be one in 6 million. This is especially true if you happen to be a man from England named Will Golden. Unfortunately, Mr. Golden was born with a birth defect known as Penile and testicular agenesis in which a male child is born without a penis.

As one would imagine there are a host of physical and mental issues that come when being born with such a condition. Males with testicular agenesis tend not to produce the reproductive hormone 5aDHT at any stage of their lives. As a result, they tend toward prepubescent appearance, with infantile skin texture, developing little body hair particularly in the crotch area, and without genitalia of either sex, the perineum is therefore left smooth – like a Ken Doll.

PENILE AGENESIS

A problem for people with penile agenesis is the absence of a urinary outlet. Before genital metamorphosis, the urethra runs down the anal wall, to be pulled away by the genital tubercle during male development.

HOW DOES HE PEE?

Without male development, this does not occur. However, the urethra can be surgically redirected to the rim of the anus immediately after birth. In other words, Will Golden urinates out of his butt.

NO SHAME!

Will has come to grips with his condition and is not ashamed of his physiology. In fact, he frequently poses for pictures with fans.

INPSIRATION!

Will is an inspiration for people who have overcome severe physical adversity. Recently medical advances in surgical procedures have given hope to men born with this condition, including creating an artificial penis from other body parts.
