Porn star ... John Wayne Bobbitt

 

THE fear normally hits him during the dead of night.

He dreams of the knife carving through his flesh — the cold steel causing unimaginable pain and unleashing torrents of blood.

It was 20 years ago this week that wife Lorena chopped off John Wayne Bobbitt’s willy, but for the former US marine the night terrors continue.

Life for the 46-year-old took a very different path after his put-upon wife snapped and carried out an attack that still makes men wince the world over.

He became a porn star, married twice more and was arrested a number of times for assaulting women before he found God and changed his ways.

Bobbitt — who has seen his name become a byword for vicious sexual assault — says: “People think it’s all a big joke but I almost bled to death.

 

"Can you imagine something like that happening to you? I was in shock.

"After the knife sliced through, I lost a huge amount of blood.

"At some point I passed out cold. When I came round I was being prepared for surgery.

"The operation lasted ten hours. My wife had sliced off the top two-and-a-half inches and the doctors had to re-attach all the nerve endings and tissue. It was a very delicate operation.

"I woke up covered in bandages. They’d inserted a catheter tube — and for two months that was the only way I could go to the bathroom.

"The doctors warned me there could be all sorts of complications.

"The worst-case scenario was if an infection set in — they said it would go black and drop off.”

Bobbitt’s notoriety began the night he stumbled back to his Virginia home following an evening’s drinking and started arguing with his wife. It was June 23, 1993.

She later claimed he raped her that night, but he was acquitted of this.

 

When Bobbitt was asleep she went downstairs, grabbed an eight-inch kitchen knife and attacked him.

She then drove off and hurled his severed penis into a nearby field before realising what she had done and calling the emergency services.

Bobbitt was taken to hospital and, after a painstaking search by emergency teams, the missing part was found and put on ice ready to be reattached.

Lorena said in court that her husband had been sexually, physically and emotionally abusive during their four-year marriage and was found not guilty of malicious wounding on the grounds of temporary insanity.

Bobbitt feared he would never be able to have sex again. But he says: “About three weeks after the operation, after the nurses were changing my bandages, I suddenly felt a tingly feeling. It wasn’t perfect but it was there.

"I was so excited I phoned my mother. Bless her, she was so embarrassed! She said, ‘Don’t tell me — talk to your father about it’.

"Three months later I was out one night in a bar and I met a girl. She knew who I was — at that point everyone knew who I was.

"We went back to her place and did what comes naturally.

"I was frightened it wouldn’t work and my penis wasn’t 100 per cent, but we did OK.”

Bobbitt says it took two years for his manhood to fully heal. And once it did he set about making full use of it.

 

He says: “The doctors told me I would never be able to have sex again because my injuries were so bad. But I’ve proved them wrong time and time again. I believe I’ve slept with 70 women since the incident.

"Being the most famous man to have his penis chopped off does have its advantages. It definitely has not hurt my love life — in fact it improved it.

"I guess some women got a kick out of saying they slept with John Wayne Bobbitt.”

John became a global celebrity — with television and radio shows queueing to interview him. He recalls: “One of my favourites was the Howard Stern Radio Show. He offered to pay for a penis enlargement and I jumped at the chance. I still had not fully regained my confidence in that department and I thought it would help get back my self-esteem.

"The three-hour operation added just under two inches to the length. The plastic surgeon also made it thicker.

"I was lucky — everything went back to good working order.

 

"I joke it’s all ‘souped up’ now — like an ordinary car with a bigger engine. I can honestly say it’s never been better.”

Bobbitt soon began to take advantage of his notoriety.

He started a band called The Severed Parts and moved to Las Vegas, where he made a couple of adult films, including one titled Frankenpenis.

But he found himself on a dark path that shames him to this day.

In 1994 Bobbitt was jailed for 15 days for beating fiancée Kristina Elliott. There was no wedding.

His 2001 marriage to a businesswoman lasted just 23 days.

A third marriage in 2002 lasted two years — during which time he was arrested for assaulting his wife.

Now Bobbitt insists his hard-living days and the violent attacks are things of the past. He has discovered God and two years ago moved back to his native Niagara Falls in New York, where he is a regular churchgoer and makes a living as a carpenter and limo driver.

He has also settled down with the woman he says is the love of his life.

Marie Basile, 43, has known Bobbitt since childhood and they are planning to get married.

Bobbitt, who is now writing his autobiography, says: “For my book I’ve done a lot of research on men who had their penises cut off by women.

"From 1836 until my case in 1993, records show 19 men had their penises cut off. After my case to the present there have been another 121. A lot of them were copycat attacks.”

Bobbitt and Lorena, 44, who runs lorenasredwagon.com — a website helping victims of domestic violence — were reunited for the first time since the attack on a recent US TV show.

And while Bobbitt admits the two will never be friends, he does take some positives from what happened.

He says: “Obviously, I would have preferred not to go through all that pain and suffering. But being famous for my penis has given me opportunities I could not have ever imagined.”
