Whichever Route


Good morning.

Some very good answers to yesterday's question about implants. I had forgotten about the issues with the inflatable version that several readers mentioned. I did a teensy bit of research and found that great strides have been made over the years (as Faithful reader Jean pointed out) and the failure rate is about 11%. Some of that is due to fluid leakage - which does require additional surgery to repair. The semirigid has no reported failure incidents; none that I could find, anyway.

I had a step-brother who had the semirigid implant many years ago after being in a rollover car accident that left him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. 

He was quite happy with it - it was always there when he wanted it. "No muss, no fuss" as he used to say.

Whichever route the questioner takes, I hope that his choice serves him well.

When you think about it it's rather amazing what they can do these days. I know when you think about all the working parts of a penis and how they can get it working again is short of a miracle.

And I see you included a picture of Matty Gilbert. Boy does he get me hot on his Twitter.

You can also use a pump that had a rubber cock ring that fits over the end. Once the external pump has the penis expanded, one slips the rubber cock ring off the end and onto the base of the penis. It holds the blood in place. I think you need to remove the ring after 20-30 minutes. Some insurances will cover the cost. Ask your doctor about this option.

All my condolences for your step brother regarding his disabilities.

Hugs and bisous, my darlings Jean and Pat.

@ MFP - Thank you, mon ami. He died several years ago now. I can say he was a real character.

Something to think about, count your blessings. Sometimes the ONLY thing positive going on can be having your sexual equipment in good working order. A true blessing. Hugs and bisous.

There is a website called which was set up for guys with ED problems. A lot of the guys there have had implants. You can find a lot of information there from the guys. The really big one is to go to a surgeon who does them all the time and find out his success rate. I have an 84 year old friend who had an implant years go. He still gives demos from time to time for guys who are considering an implant. There are guys on Frank Talk who are willing to demo as well.
