3 things you didn’t know about the penis

14 January 2014, 10:05

Abuja - After an anonymous Reddit user posted images of his two penises and answered hundreds of questions about his condition we’ve decided to explore some more crazy penis facts.

A Tale of Two
Diphallus is when you’re born with 2 penises – a condition that affects one in 5-6 million men.

It’s very rare for both penises to be functional, but a Reddit user has recently shared his tale with the world.

Go read it, it’s fascinating. Beware, the images are very graphic, but you have to click on them to pop up.

Ladies first
All penises started out as clitorises in the womb. That’s because all babies start out as girls.

That is why a penis has a dark line on the underside: it’s called the perinea raphe or seam and it’s where the labia closed and the scrotum formed.

Smoking guns
Smoking can cause you to lose up to 1cm in penis length. Smokers also have more trouble with erectile dysfunction and experience less intense orgasms.

Use it or lose it
Regular (safe) sex and/ or masturbation is important for penile health. Think of the penis as a muscle (it’s not) that needs to be exercised for it to remain in prime condition.

Sex and masturbation keeps men and women healthy, so go for it. Just be safe.
