Channel 4 viewers were left cringing after a man showed off his erect penis to his mother via FaceTime in The Man With A Penis On His Arm.
The insightful documentary titled followed three men with new or replacement penises telling their stories.
In the first few minutes, viewers were introduced to Anick who explained that the ‘doctors couldn’t tell whether he was a boy or a girl.’
He said: ‘I’ve had so many different diagnoses over the years. First, they said it was a buried penis or a micro-penis and it hadn’t changed much since I was a child.’
During the episode, Anick talked about his impending phalloplasty procedure- which is an artificial modification of the penis by surgery.
As the programme progressed, viewers saw Anick (post-surgery) attempting to connect with his member.
However, to the audience’s horror, he quickly FaceTimed his mum and said: ‘I just pumped it up.’
‘Oh my gosh it looks so real,’ his mother replied as Anick hovered his phone down south.
While viewers praised the bond shared between the two, others were a little confused and shared their thoughts on Twitter.
‘I don’t care how rare it is, who FaceTimes their Mother to tell her how their masturbation is getting on and how much they’ve been pumping it?’ one person wrote.
‘I love that this guy’s mum is so supportive, but did he really need to video call her to show her his erection!!!!’ another added.
Elsewhere, 47-year-old Malcolm MacDonald talked about how a past serious infection caused his penis to turn black and fall off in the toilet back in 2010.
The £50,000 NHS-funded creation was due to be placed on his groin in 2015 but a lack of oxygen meant it was instead grafted on his arm.
The dad said he was living a ‘nightmare’ as he had to cover it up with long sleeves when the Covid pandemic and hospital delays meant his surgery was pushed back.
Speaking about the placement disadvantages, he said the worst thing about it was cooking.’
‘It burns when I use the back hob,’ he said.
