Jack Yount Silicone Genital Enhancement Session One

Dr. John Ronald Brown (July 14, 1922 – May 16, 2010) was known as the “World’s Worst Sex Change Surgeon” in some circles. To others he was the Modification Doctor; a surgeon willing to do procedures that others weren’t. From his private offices in San Francisco and his clinic in Mexico he became a beacon of hope for transsexuals who didn’t meet the criteria for sexual reassignment surgery candidacy through established programs by offering his services to anyone who could afford them regardless of their clinical diagnosis. For early surgical modification devotees, Dr. Brown would offer his services out of the clinic, hotel rooms or living rooms depending on the complexity of the operation.

The State of California revoked his license to practice medicine along with Hawaii, Alaska and the Island of Saint Lucia, which ironically freed him from questions of medical ethics though not of legality. In 1990 Doctor Brown served nineteen months in prison for practicing medicine without a license, and in 1999 was convicted of second degree homicide after amputating the leg of a 77 year old client suffering from apotemnophilia.

Despite being well known for his gender reassignment surgeries, Dr. Brown had a successful sideline in extreme aesthetic surgeries performed on men interested in body modification. In meeting Jack Yount he was reintroduced to a community of men who wanted procedures outside of the thresholds of AMA and legal allowances. Brown had previously performed an operation on Fakir Musafar, cutting his suspensory ligament, but Jack and his peers went for more extreme modifications.

One of which was silicone injections directly into the penis and scrotum, often to gigantic proportions. Brown would occasionally travel to Jack’s Zephyrhills, Florida home to do ‘modification parties’ to add more and more silicone to a list of happy clients. This video, recorded in direct address after his first round of injections, was sent to others considering getting the silicone procedure done. Before his death in 1995, Jack would have Dr. Brown inject 100s of CCs (possibly thousands) into his penis, scrotum, chest and eyebrows, radically reshaping his anatomy.

Due to his procedures being done primarily underground using techniques and materials not endorsed by the AMA, the safety of Brown’s procedures is as best, questionable. Anecdotally the men with direct silicone injections that I met through Jack/Brown had no unexpected problems, with some of the older clients sitting at 20+ years since initial injection, but I would seriously question the long term potential side-effects of silicone enhancement.

Brown is a controversial figure who’s technique is said to have earned him the nickname of ‘Butcher Brown’ in the transexual community, but he remained an affable fellow to a great number of those who sought him out for modifications. He died in prison on 16th May 2010. My attempts to visit him were turned down.

This video was previously published on SPCONLINE and BMENEWS.

Shawn Porter has spent the majority of his life in the modification world. As a body modification archivist and documentarian, he has one of the most extensive collections of documents relating to the early American body modification community in existence. He edited the SPC website from 1995 to 2005, co-founded ModCon, was the host of ModCons 3.5 and 4, and created and hosted The Scarwars Project from 2004-2007. In 2011 Shawn launched Occult Vibrations, a blog devoted to traditional American tattoos with a focus on the occult and esoteric. He currently resides in Philadelphia with his wife Julia and their creepy pets Mr. Bailey Papers and L. RonBenet Ramsey.


  1. Always great to hear Jack’s voice again! Thanks for uploading this version of him sharing his impressions of one of his experiences. This is an excellent example of some of what was so significant to me about him. He showed a gregarious kindness in his nature mixed with an eagerness to discuss and explain ideas and encourage us to think for ourselves while instilling the importance of community.

  2. Great to see this stuff Shawn. I can wait to see and read so much more. I know how massive your collection and experiences are going back much longer than most of us have gone around; and having actually been there your writing provides a great amount of context. keep on brother!

  3. My browser doesn’t like the video (it’s giving an error about the format) but I’ve always found Dr. Brown to be a really fascinating character. The line between acceptable medical treatment and illicit backroom modification procedures is so blurry, especially in aesthetic procedures. Why should it be okay to use silicone to give a woman gigantic obviously-enhanced breasts… but not to give a man gigantic obviously-enhanced genitals?

    The settings of Dr. Brown’s surgeries always creeped me out. I was never sure how much of this was due to being forced underground by the nature of his procedures… or simply lax standards of sterilization and hygiene. (And obviously, most reports were written by biased sources condemning his work, so I don’t really know how much to believe.) I had similar feelings about Todd Bertrang’s genital modification work – controversies about his procedures aside, seeing his willingness to do genital surgery in a sketchy hotel room (oh sweet mercy, that video) was really disconcerting.

    I found it really interesting that there’s still a substantial backroom silicone injection scene in SoCal – in some regards, it really doesn’t sound much different than these Zephyrhills parties a couple of decades ago.

  4. Some folks are reporting that on their browsers the video stops after 9 seconds. I’ve checked it on two computers and it seems fine, but I’ll have someone who’s more techy look at it.

  5. Curious, was Dr. Brown the guy who worked on Stalking Cat on the operations they had to go to Mexico to? If so, curious if they also did any sort of work down there on them…

  6. I’ve really got the bug to get my cock and scrotum enhanced. I also want some enhancement to my nips. I like the freaky cock and ball look and planning to go super huge there. My pecs are already big, I just want to give my nips a “boost” to take another set or two of rings. I’ve got Dr Esperanza’s contact information in Tijuana, which would be expensive for multiple trips. I’m clearly not asking the right people here in Houston in my search for a local silicone infuser.
