Biohacker Bryan Johnson is getting his penis injected as part of his $2 million-a-year mission to look younger, with the entrepreneur dubbing this part of the process ‘rejuvenating Johnson’s Johnson’.
The 46-year-old claims to have the biological age of an 18-year-old, and believes in his anti-aging and longevity methods so much that he has made a career out of it with what he’s dubbed ‘Project Blueprint’.
Johnson who sold his payment processing tech business, Braintree Venmo, to PayPal for $800 million (then £492 million) a decade ago – has a team of 30 doctors headed by Cambridge-based anti-ageing expert Dr Oliver Zolman. Zolamn closely monitors his blood, heart, liver, kidneys, brain, blood vessels and sexual health.
His strict regime involves downing 80 vitamins and mineral supplements every day, alongside a very precise 1,977-calorie diet – consisting of 70lbs of mushed veggies a month as well as almond milk, walnuts, flaxseed and berries.
Johnson also exercises for at least half an hour a day, hits the sack at precisely 8.30pm every night, lasers away any skin sun damage, zaps his pelvic floor muscles with electromagnets, and even ‘placates’ the vagus nerve (which controls stress) with a clip-on gadget
In his latest move, he’s turning his attention to his penis, which he’s apparently getting ‘injected’ to help him achieve a ‘prolonged erection’, among other things.
“I’m getting my penis injected Friday which is an arousing topic,” he said on Twitter, adding that he was ‘Rejuvenating Johnson’s Johnson’.
Johnson went on to explain the steps to the process and what they’d be focusing on, which are:
– penis injection w/Alprostadil (prolonged erection), measuring penile artery (L+R) peak/min blood flow
– ejaculation vol
– max urination speed
– sperm motility
‘Penis plaque check’ is a phrase I never, ever, ever want to hear again.
When someone asked about his ‘baseline for ejaculation volume’ – as if this was a remotely rational conversation to have – Johnson replied: “Baseline ejaculate volume is 3.0 mL, >1.4 mL is normal.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “Is this where we are as a society?”
Another added: “I think none of this is normal.”
