from www.nydailynews.com – John Wayne Bobbitt claims that losing his penis sent his sex life into overdrive.
The 46-year-old and one-time porn star says he bedded scores of women after his member was reattached, musing that “some women get a kick out of saying they slept with John Wayne Bobbitt.”
Bobbitt says he has had more than 70 lovers in the two decades since the attack, and he famously appeared in two porno films. He is now a devout Christian.
“The doctors told me I would never be able to have sex again because my injuries were so bad,” Bobbitt told Britain’s The Sun newspaper. “But I’ve proved them wrong time and time again. I believe I’ve slept with 70 women since the incident.
“Being the most famous man to have his penis chopped off does have its advantages. It definitely has not hurt my love life – in fact it improved it,” he said.
Bobbitt has been back in the news because Sunday was the 20th anniversary of his ex-wife Lorena’s infamous snip in 1993.
The former Marine said he still has nightmares about the kitchen knife attack and the buckets of blood he spilled in the sheets of his Virginia bedroom.
“People think it’s all a big joke but I almost bled to death,” he told The Sun. “After the knife sliced through, I lost a huge amount of blood.”
After police found the tip of his penis in a field -Lorena had thrown it out the window of a moving car – Bobbitt underwent surgery for 10 hours to have it reattached.
“I woke up covered in bandages,” he recalled. “They’d inserted a catheter tube, and for two months that was the only way I could go to the bathroom.
“The doctors warned me there could be all sorts of complications,” he said. “The worst-case scenario was if an infection set in, they said it would go black and drop off.”
Before long, though, he was mostly healed.
His first tumble in the hay came just a few months after his surgery when a woman who recognized him approached him at a bar, he told The Sun.
“We went back to her place and did what comes naturally,” he said. “I was frightened it wouldn’t work and my penis wasn’t 100 per cent, but we did okay.”
Bobbitt famously went on to star in a pair of porn movies, “John Wayne Bobbitt Uncut” and “Frankenpenis,” and continued to have relationship trouble until a few years ago, when he said he found God and moved home to Niagara Falls, N.Y., to settle down.
He now lives a quiet life as a limo driver and a carpenter and is planning a fourth trip to the altar.
But he’s not quite through trying to make a buck of his famous name; an autobiography is in the works.
The book will include accounts of penis-chopping attacks that occurred more than a century before his own, as well as “copycat attacks” that took place after Bobbitt’s ordeal, he told The Sun.
“Obviously, I would have preferred not to go through all that pain and suffering,” Bobbitt said. “But being famous for my penis has given me opportunities I could not have ever imagined.”
