    I am 71 and considering penile implant. I lost my wife a few years ago and would probably used it mostly for masturbation. I can't find any material addressing that. Is it safe? Anything special things I need to do or ,not to do. Is the feeling the same after implant? And anything else you care to share with me. Thanks

    A penile implant is a traumatic surgical procedure.There is no information posted about your question because every implant is different because of the wide variety of implant types, skill of the surgeon, and reaction of your body to the implant procedure.

    If at all avoidable, you should not have an implant. Instead you can learn many self-stimulation methods you will find pleasurable regardless of how erect your penis is.

    That is great information and I want to thank you much. Can you tell me where on the web I can locate self-stimulation methods? Thanks again.

    I'm sorry, I don't have a list of resources for self-pleasure, but there are sure to be thousands of places where it is discussed. Take any with some skepticism and see what works for you, without being harmful.
