The Man With No Penis, Andrew Wardle, Managed To Avoid Telling His Girlfriend For A Year

A man who was born without a penis has revealed that he managed to keep his condition a secret from his girlfriend for an entire year.

Andrew Wardle, from Manchester, was born with a condition called bladder exstrophy, which resulted in his bladder being on the outside of his body, and him having no genitalia.

He met his girlfriend, Fedra Fabian, while she was working at a summer camp in the UK. When she returned to her native Budapest they remained in contact via Skype for months, before she decided to move to England to be with him.

Wardle opened up to TLC in his upcoming documentary, 'The Man With No Penis,' saying: "I told her I had kidney infections and stuff, so she wouldn't touch my kidneys, or touch me anywhere. It kind of kept her away."

He happily accepted a sexless relationship, but eventually had to come clean when he started undergoing surgery to rectify the problem.

Fedra said: "I didn't feel betrayed. Even though I'm his girlfriend, it's his personal business."

'The Man With No Penis' airs on 11 June on TLC at 9pm.
