A California tech mogul who has spent millions on bizarre anti-aging treatments has revealed he now wears a device on his penis to measure nighttime erections.
Bryan Johnson, 46, has made headlines for his ambitious goal to live forever, which includes exchanging blood with his father and teenage son, taking in 80 vitamins and minerals a day, and eating 70 pounds of pureed vegetables a month. .
The regimen, which costs about $2 million a year, also includes wearing a small device on his penis that looks like an Apple AirPods case with a turquoise strap around it to bring his sex drive as close as possible to that of an 18-year-old. .
This measure of sexual function, he says, could help predict other health outcomes such as cardiovascular fitness.
Bryan Johnson, 46, had made headlines for his ambitious goal to live forever, which includes exchanging blood with his father and teenage son, taking in 80 vitamins and minerals a day, and eating 70 pounds of pureed vegetables a month. . He also wears a device on his penis every night that measures erections.
Last month, Johnson tweeted this graphic as an update on his progress since he started wearing a small device on his penis and doing shock wave therapy. His goal is to have a penis at 18 years old.
“I get, on average, two hours and 12 minutes a night of erection of some quality,” Johnson said. time magazine.
“For an 18-year-old, it would be three hours and 30 minutes.”
Last month, Johnson tweeted an update on his “penis rejuvenation” project, stating that his current erection age is 49 years old. He also measured his erection hardness score (EHS), a self-rated measure approved by the American Urological Association that helps patients gauge erectile stiffness. Scores range from 1 to 4, with 4 being completely difficult. Johnson gave himself a 4.
He also gave himself a score of 25 on the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF), indicating that he does not have erectile dysfunction.
He has previously said that he receives shock wave therapy on his penis to achieve more erections that resemble those of a teenager. He believes this improves pelvic floor function, leading to more erections.
Johnson made millions with his online payments platform Braintree, which, in a span of just three years, earned nearly $5 million in revenue. In 2012, profits soared with Braintree’s $26 million acquisition of Venmo, and the following year, PayPal bought it for $800 million.
Since then, he has built a company aimed at improving the quality and access of high-tech brain scans aimed at detecting impending diseases early, generating a mountain of revenue for his health efforts, such as a blood plasma exchange with his little son.
In a now-ruled blood exchange, Johnson’s 17-year-old son, Talmage (left), donated his youthful blood to his father (right), who in turn donated plasma to his 70-year-old father, Richard.
Johnson has a team of more than 30 doctors who routinely measure his blood, heart, liver, kidneys, brain, blood vessels and sexual health (pictured with father and son).
Johnson’s name has become synonymous with the biohacking movement that has taken root among business titans like him who have adopted unconventional health techniques based on biology and technology that aim to improve physical health.
Some common biohacking methods include wearable devices that monitor vital points, such as a smartwatch, nootropics or other medications that improve cognitive function, and red light therapy to improve skin health.
Biohacking can also mean experimenting with meditation and mindfulness practices and optimizing nutrition and exercise routines.
Johnson said anything that accelerates aging, such as eating a cookie or sleeping less than eight hours, is an “act of violence.”
In addition to consuming 80 vitamins and minerals a day, eating 70 pounds of pureed vegetables a month, exercising for an hour with 25 different exercises, Johnson follows a strict 1,977-calorie diet and has taken more than 33,000 pictures of the inside of his gut. .
A team of more than 30 doctors regularly measures your blood, heart, liver, kidneys, brain, blood vessels and sexual health. He claims that he now has the heart of a 37-year-old, the skin of a 28-year-old, and the physical condition of an 18-year-old.
“I currently have no plans to die,” he previously told DailyMail.com.
Johnson’s quest for eternal youth began after a messy divorce with the mother of his three children. He found himself 60 pounds overweight, depressed to the point of suicidal thoughts, and suffering from violent mood swings.
‘There was another Bryan, who I call ‘Evening Bryan’, and he would show up at 7pm sharp. He’d say, ‘Hey, you’ve had a great day…why don’t you celebrate tonight and have pizza and cookies, and tomorrow we’ll work really hard?'” Johnson said.
“Then I would wake up fat, without having slept well, depressed.
‘It took me years to eliminate that inner demon. I learned to recognize it and I would say, “Thank you, good afternoon Bryan, but that’s not going to happen. We know what happens when we eat too much and don’t feel good… so no.”
Johnson did not specify exactly how the device increases the number of erections you have or how much it costs.
Shockwave therapy, on the other hand, involves applying low-frequency vibrations to the genital area, which increases blood flow to the penis and produces more erections.
Johnson has not said how long he plans to continue using the device at night and when he expects to see the results he seeks.
