RE-MEMBERED John Wayne Bobbitt reveals why he still feels like a lucky man 25 years after his wife famously chopped off his private part
Even though he had his member horrifically chopped off in 1993, John Wayne Bobbitt is happy with his lot
DESPITE infamously having his willy chopped off 25 years ago John Wayne Bobbitt is still happy with his lot.
After he had his private part reattached in 1993, Bobbit appeared in numerous adult films – such as John Wayne Bobbitt Uncut and Frankenprivate part.
To prepare for these x-rated films, he went under the knife again – this time to have private part enlargement surgery.
However, in an interview with the Daily Mail, Bobbitt revealed how he has recently had a reduction.
And the former porn star is delighted with the results of the operation.

He said: “I haven’t been able to make love properly for over 20 years, but now I can.
“I am fully functional – and it was so easy, I didn’t even have to stay in hospital overnight.”
Bobbitt, speaking 25 years on from the excruciating incident, seems to have overcome the trauma.
He says it’s all down to his training as a United States Marine.

He added: “If it was anybody else, some white-collar guy, some banker, some other guy not so well trained, it would have been a different story.
“It would have been a lot more tragic. They probably would have killed themselves, you know. But I am a survivor.”
He then joked: “I don’t know anyone who has been through so much with their sex organ as I have.”
Bobbitt currently rents a house in North Las Vegas, where he lives with a chihuahua. His new girlfriend, Joni, is a regular visitor.
Bobbitt has money in the bank but he lives mostly on disability benefits after breaking his neck in a car accident in 2014.
He also suffers from osteomyelitis, a bone infection that gives him ulcers and necessitates painful skin grafts.
John Wayne Bobbitt first made the news when his wife, Lorena, famously cut off his private part while he slept.
Lorena cut off John’s private part after, allegedly, he abused her.
Realising what she had done she drove away in her car with the severed appendage before throwing it into a field.
The private part was eventually reattached, after a police search for it, in an operation which took more than nine hours.
Bobbitt is taking part in an investigation about the case by ABC’s 20/20 news show.
Thanks to the renewed interest in the incident because of the 25th anniversary, Amazon have picked up a four-part documentary called Lorena, produced by Oscar-winning Jordan Peele.
