    Let's say you are an organ donor so that when you die, doctors can use your kidneys, heart, eyes, hands, ... or whatever organ to help somebody else. Would you donate your penis to a man whose penis got damaged?

    Yes. Don't know why anyone would want it, having hypospadias and all, but ok.

    I am a registered organ donor. I will not know what they cut off of me our out of me to give to another. Why not? I know that my penis has given me a lot of pleasure, hopefully it would do the same for someone else.

    If I was ever in that situation (although I am a donor by my driver's license), it really won't matter to me since I wouldn't be using it anymore.

    Transplants of appendages are still experimental and quite rare, so it's a non-issue at the moment.

    It would seem to me that a penile transplant would be technically difficult, requiring an insane amount of microsurgery to attach nerves and vessels and get them to work right. Even then, there may be problems with scarring and poor nerve function that could make erectile function difficult. As with all transplants, there would also be the disadvantage of lifelong immunosuppression.

    A quick google search shows that such a procedure has been done in China, but the man subsequently requested the donated organ to be removed for psychological reasons. Man rejects first penis transplant | Science | The Guardian

    I voted "depends on" because when you're an organ donor, and when you die, you don't really have much of a say in which organs are use.

    Besides, the penis isn't an organ technically, but if science advances to the point where I'm dead and mine can be used to help somebody else, then more power to 'em.

    Not like I'm going to be needing it much after that point anyways.

    I just hope they don't circumcise me.

    I have a handful of allergies that make me a suspect organ donor (allergic to beans, for one), so I doubt anyone could use me.

    I'd donate my penis. I ain't going to have sex after I'm dead, so I won't need it. Besides, I'd like to know that I can bring joy and pleasure to somebody else.

    Once I'm done with it, they can have it.

    Until then, you can still use it, so long as it's still attached to me and what we're doing with it is OK with me.
