An American man says he has already found a doctor willing to remove his penis. From there, he hopes to donate his former member to Iceland’s Phallological Museum.

Nútíminn reports that American Tom Mitchell has long dreamed of being able to visit his own penis in the museum, as he was featured in the 2012 documentary The Final Member, wherein he was competing with Icelander Páll Árason to be the first human donor to the museum (a competition which Páll won in 2011).

Undeterred, Tom kicked things up a notch by disclosing that he has found an Italian doctor willing to remove his penis, which he has named Elmo.

“I don’t know whether Tom Mitchell is his real name, but he’s been in contact with us several times,” museum curator Þórður Ólafur Þórðarson told reporters. “He has found an Italian doctor ready to perform the operation. We would be happy to receive his penis,” adding that Mitchell said he thought it would be “funny” to be able to visit his own penis in a museum.

Þorður says that while there are actually dozens of people on a waiting list to donate their penises, Mitchell is in a “special category” for being the only one willing to do this while still alive.

The Penis Museum, located in downtown Reykjavík, exhibits some 300 different types of penis from numerous species, including the aforementioned human specimen from Páll. When or if Tom goes through with his plans remains to be seen.
