Who Wants to Ask Their Rabbi?

I know some pretty free and easy rabbis, but I came across a question that even I might squirm before posing to a rabbinic authority.

Anyone know the answer to this: So apparently docs are getting really good at skin grafts using pig skin derivatives called Strattice. There’s a chance they will start using this for bottom surgeries soon. Is it kosher though if someone, well, sticks the resulting phallus in their mouth?

My immediate reaction, which you can read as a comment, is that halakhah prohibits deriving any benefit from non-kosher animals, barring life-saving circumstances. Assuming putting the phallus in one’s mouth counts as a benefit, I have to imagine it’s prohibited.

Anyone else have any ideas?
