This is embarrassing.. but I have admit that I have a 30-40 degrees left-curved banana shaped penis. It is literally shaped like a banana. Maybe because of unequal growth of penis chamber. My right side seems to be more developed and "stuffed" compare to the left side.. so maybe it curved to the left. Though the base of my penis is straight, it starts to curve left about 1/2 inch from the base. I masturbate about 4x a week using my right hand for 7 years now. Ever since I was a kid, I notice that my penis deviates to the left side of my underwear. But is is not curved like that during my teen (just a bit pointed to the left)..
My question is.. Is this kind of penis a normal variation? Why is it curved like that? What is your opinion?

Having a penis that curves is nothing out of the ordinary, honestly. Having some sort of curvature is probably more common, actually, than having a penis that's perfectly straight, and as long as it isn't causing you any pain, then it's completely fine.
As for why, that's difficult to say, really, except that the human body tends to be a bit asymmetrical in a lot of ways. Lots of people have one thumb that's a bit longer than the other, or one foot that's a bit bigger, and a penis that curves to the right or left a bit is in the same category.
(By the way, I noticed you posted this in another part of the boards as well. Please don't double post; we get to questions as quickly as possible and posting them more than once isn't necessary. Thanks!)
