Andrew Wardle, 40, from Manchester has no penis, but hid the fact from his girlfriend until one year after they began dating exclusively. Mr Wardle, who is halfway through four operations to rebuild his penis, avoided intimacy by telling his girlfriend he had a series of kidney infections.
Andrew says he's been with several women but didn't tell most of them about his condition. Of those he told, many weren't at all understanding, he says one girlfriend even punched him in the face when he revealed the truth.
'I have been to bed with over 100 women and I was proud of it. But now I look back and I'm not proud at all because that means I've told over 100 women lies. I knew my way around a woman's body and I knew my way around a woman's mind. I was very confident in bed and about what I could do to them so they wouldn't come near me. So they was finished and I was fine.'
His current girlfriend says she has forgiven him for keeping the truth about his body secret from her. Fashion student Fedra Fabian, 25, from Budapest, has been in a relationship with Andrew since 2012.
Speaking to the Sun newspaper, she said:
'I didn't feel betrayed. Even though I'm his girlfriend, it's his personal business. Sometimes it is hard for women to tell their boyfriends they are unable to have children. Imagine how difficult it was for Andrew.'
Now Mr Wardle is undergoing specialist treatment that will give him a fully-functioning set of genitals and is to star in a new documentary that will be screened next week on TLC.
