Remember John Bobbitt? You’ll Never Guess What He’s Doing Today…
The nineties had plenty of court cases that will live on in infamy -- the revenge of Tonya Harding, the high-profile trial of OJ Simpson, the love triangle that surrounded Joey Buttafuoco, and more. But one of them seems to, ahem, stick out farther than the rest in our minds. That's the case of John and Lorena Bobbitt, whose marriage came to a tumultuous close when Lorena cut off John's penis while he was sleeping.
That isn't to say that John didn't deserve it. He was abusive and manipulating, and the courts eventually decided that Lorena had rightfully had enough of his bulls**t. But it's what happened after the trial that gets really, really interesting -- particularly when it comes to the decisions John made after his penis became one of the most famous in America. Find out what John Bobbitt did with his post-castration fame below -- it involves porn, wrestling, and a man that just won't seem to quit (even if his penis might every once in awhile).
Do these faces look familiar to you?
The guy on the right is John Wayne Bobbitt. On the left, we have his wife Lorena. If the details are still escaping you, don't worry, we've got a refresher for you.

Here's how the story went: On June 23, 1993, Lorena Bobbitt took an eight-inch carving knife from the kitchen, crept up on her sleeping husband, and cut his penis off right at the base.
Then, she took his penis, drove it down the road, and threw it in a field. Yeah, it was pretty brutal.

But Lorena was only human, so she felt guilty and called 911.
After an extensive search, Bobbitt's penis was recovered. He then had emergency surgery to reattach it. It took nearly ten hours.
It was one of the most talked-about cases of the year.
For obvious reasons.
Her trial took place over the course of 1993 to 1994.
And the evidence was just as disgusting as you might think.
