Sorry seems to be the hardest word: John Wayne Bobbitt appears on ABC's The View this morning
It's clearly what left a lasting scar: that she never said she was sorry.
John Wayne Bobbitt, the man who became a household name in 1993 when his wife Lorena cut off his unmentionable, appeared on The View this morning to talk about his life 17 years on.
Trusting women is still hard, he said. But as for the one question that everyone wanted to know, he had good news: Yes, everything works fine.
'We got some good doctors today,' he said with a smile.
In fact, the penis now works so well that Mr Bobbitt went on to star in two pornographic films.
He was invited on the ABC show as part of a running Where Are They Now? series.
He was generous towards his ex-wife, saying that he never had any ill will towards her after she lopped his penis off and threw it into a field on June 23, 1993.
Doctors recovered the organ and miraculously managed to sew it back on.
Mr Bobbitt said his ex had clearly done it because she was 'heartbroken'.
Everything's in working order: Mr Bobbitt told the ladies of The View that he has suffered no lasting effects from the incident
'You take things really seriously': Bobbitt was reunited with his former
wife Lorena on U.S. tabloid show Insider in 2009
Insanity: Lorena Bobbitt during her 1994 trial
The attack took place in their Manassas, Virginia apartment after he returned home drunk one night and allegedly raped her.
But the one thing that leaves a mark, he said today, is the fact that there was 'no apology' after the attack - ever.
The Bobbitts were reunited for the first time after the attack in 2009 when they appeared on The Insider together.
At the time, Mr Bobbitt told his ex - who has since reverted to her maiden name of Gallo - that he had not realised how sensitive she was.
'You take things really seriously,' he told her.
Then, he also admitted harbouring tender feelings towards her. Miss Gallo said he even sends her Valentine's Day cards and roses.
On The Insider, Mr Bobbitt recalled his terror at waking to find his manhood missing. Miss Gallo recounted her own decision to throw the member into a field. 'You drove me to that,' she told him.
Mr Bobbitt was charged with marital sexual assault in November 1993 and later acquitted.
His ex-wife was charged with malicious wounding, but found not guilty by reason of insanity in a January 1994 trial.
She now runs a website for abused women.
