Like our brains, the human penis hasn’t evolved in tens of thousands of years — and that’s a real shame. Our favorite male body part is capable of so much more. In consideration of pending advances in science and technology, here’s what to expect with penis 2.0.
Before we get started it’s important to point out that much of what I describe below is pure speculation; think of this post as a “wish list” of features we’d like to see in a future version of the human penis. Indeed, many of the proposed enhancements and augmentations are nowhere near prime time, and many have never even been considered by the scientific and medical communities. With all that said, I did my best to describe how we might actually make some of this happen.
First and foremost, the penis of the future must be resistant to sexually transmitted diseases. According to the Center for Disease Control, there are about 20 million new infections of STDs in the U.S. each year, burdening the American healthcare system to the tune of $16 billion in direct medical costs. STDs are transmitted a number of ways, including through the blood, vaginal fluids, and semen. They can also be spread via infected skin or mucous membranes, such as sores in the mouth. Exposure typically occurs through vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
