A tech billionaire who spends $3.1 million a year in a bid to live forever has now started “penis rejuvenation therapy” to stay erect for longer.
Bryan Johnson gets shockwave treatment three times a week in the hope of improving his love life.
The 45-year-old — who made his fortune by selling the online payment system Braintree Payment Solutions to eBay for $800 million — posted on X (formerly Twitter): “Started first penis rejuvenation therapy: Focused shockwave therapy 6 treatments, 3x/wk Cost $1-2k.
“Evidence: multiple randomised controlled trials showed that shockwave therapy improves erectile dysfunction.
“We are testing whether it improves total time night-time erections, subjective sexual performance, sexual satisfaction, and medical imaging-based penile markers.”
In another post, Johnson detailed the “baseline measurements” and “goals” of his penis rejuvenation plan — including his ultimate target of achieving three hours and 30 minutes worth of night-time erections.
The American follows a strict regime in his attempt to turn back the clock — taking 111 pills a day, drinking 88ml of alcohol every morning, following a plant-based diet packed with “super veggies”, not eating after 11am and always being in bed by 8.30pm.
He has in the past also injected himself with his 17-year-old son’s plasma to try to stay young.
Speaking on the podcast Dairy of a CEO, Johnson revealed that he was single, admitting that his extreme lifestyle made romance complicated.
“In circumstances where I’ve tried to date, the first thing I do is give them a list of 10 things, like, ‘Here’s all the things you’re going to hate about me and (all the things that are) going to make me an impossible partner for you’. It’s a big deal,” he said.
Johnson has achieved viral fame for his quest to restore his organs and bodily functions to those of an 18-year-old through his bizarre health regimen.
Branded Project Blueprint, Johnson has said it had given him the heart of a 37-year-old, the skin of a 28-year-old and the lung capacity and fitness of an 18-year-old.
