Man, there’s just no way to write this OP without it sounding like a joke, is there?
World’s first penis transplant ends in amputation.
Not because of any rejection but because the recipient apparently couldn’t handle it. Psychologically couldn’t handle it, that is.

That’s got to be the worst case of penis envy I’ve ever seen!
