El Chapo Had Penis Surgery Following Sean Penn Meeting
Sean Penn and Joaquín Guzmán Loera (Sean Penn for Rolling Stone)
It's believed that sometime after his interview with Sean Penn and meeting with actress Kate del Castillo, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman found time for a little bit of male-enhancement surgery.
The surgery—which is said to have taken place at a Tijuana hospital—improves the appearance, but also treats erectile dysfunction. He scheduled it despite being on the lam, and had it performed just a couple of months before his recapture.
The report comes from Reforma newspaper—a source told them, "During his six months as a fugitive (for a second time) El Chapo left his comfort zone on only one occasion and that was to go to Tijuana to fix his erectile dysfunction problem."
At the property where he was recaptured, authorities reportedly "recovered injectable testosterone, anti-inflammatories, prescribed sexual performance medication," $300 worth of sexual performance medication, and one book, "Swedish-made Penis Enlargers And Me: This Sort of Thing Is My Bag Baby," by El Chapo.
