What's Up With Curvature of the Penis?

What's Up With Curvature of the Penis?

Just as all women's breasts look different, men's private parts can differ too. Some are longer, shorter, thicker, or thinner. Some even curve. Since the penis is made of muscles, if certain ones are stronger than the others, it will cause a slight bend known as congenital curvature. A slight curve is normal and fairly common, and there's really nothing wrong or anything the guy should do, unless he feels pain during an erection or sexual activity. Actually some women prefer the curve, especially if it's bent upward since it can stimulate her G-spot better.

What if the bend is more severe, or the angle makes it difficult for the guy to enter his partner without it hurting? To find out


If the curve makes sex a discomforting challenge, then the guy may have a condition known as Peyronie’s disease. An extreme curve in the penis can be painful, and can cause hardened, cord-like lesions to form on the skin. This disease usually develops in males between the ages of 40 and 60, but can happen at any time. The symptoms may appear suddenly or slowly, and vary in severity. Peyronie’s occurs in about one to four percent of the male population, and doctors aren't yet sure what causes this condition, though possibilities include injury, infection, or a vitamin E deficiency. If this sounds familiar, even though it may be embarrassing to address, it's best for the guy to see a urologist. They can help diagnose the problem and offer treatment so the man can get back to enjoying sex again.

According to Dr. Terri Hamilton, author of "Skin Flutes & Velvet Gloves", the curvature of a man's erect penis is largely DICKtated by his dressing habits over the years (i.e., how he tucks himself away in his undershorts). A left tucker's erect penis will tend to curve to the left, a right tucker's to the right, etc. The author then goes on to say that it "Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the word 'jockey.'" Hah!

Wondering if guys are reading this.. There are guys very sensitive about one's past history and when commenting on their private parts, they get their feelings bruised easily. Not sure what the big deal is, women don't get their bruised when they are told that they are "flat." I am very weary of guys like that but there are plenty of them around. So I will seal my lips. Read the comments listed in - Asian girls and you will be a believer.

My ex had a curved penis. That was a bit strange. It curved to the side and that hurt sometimes.

there's so much that i don't know about or never even thought about. i guess it makes sense. i would hate to have that disease - cause i could only imagine how painful it could be. just having a slight curve wouldn't bother me, but to think that there could be more to it than that - i wouldn't know what to do if i were a guy.

It could also be a Hypospadia. That condition can cause curvature of the penis.
