Could stem-cell research create genitalia?
 
If someone lost their testicles, ovaries, or other sexual organs and wanted to recover them; or in case of sex-changes they wanted to be able to reproduce naturally (womb, sperm and eggs production, etc). Could stem cells achieve all that, in theory?

no they will have to make a lot of changes for them to have working sex organs. well i think dude one will be more easy to make work but female will probably will never happen.

I honestly don't think so.

The hard part would be getting the complex muscles and nerves to link up again... But I think they've done genital reconstruction before, so growing them would seem to be easier
