The incident occurred on June 23, 1993, in Manassas, Virginia, and the legal case surrounding the incident subsequently took place during 1993 and 1994.

Lorena stated in a court hearing that, after coming home at night on June 23, 1993, her husband raped her. After her husband had gone to sleep, Lorena grabbed a 12-inch knife from the kitchen, entered their bedroom, and cut her husband’s penis at its base.

After this, Lorena left the apartment with the severed appendage and drove away in her car. After a while, she threw it into a field. She eventually stopped and called 9-1-1. John’s penis was found after an exhaustive search, and it was reattached in the hospital where he was treated. The operation took nine and a half hours.┬áThe Jury eventually found her not guilty by reason of insanity.

John went on to star in a series of pornographic films in the 1990s, and now claims his penis is “back to normal”.
