Question about penis appearance

Unread postby Smileywolf » Mon Jun 15, 2020 10:42 am

Hello everyone, I just have a couple of questions about the way my penis looks. I know it is normal for my penis to naturally tilt/bend to the left, which mine does. However, my penis is also rotated a little, so the opening is at an angle and not completely vertical. All of this is when I am not erect and does not cause any pain. Is this okay? Also, I don’t know for sure whether this developed over time or if I was born with it but just didn’t notice, but is either way okay. Basically, do I have anything to worry about, and what could have caused it? Thank you.

Hi Smileywolf,

Since this isn't causing you any pain or discomfort (and it doesn't sound like it's making it harder to pee or ejaculate), then it's unlikely to be cause for concern. As for what caused it, it's in all likelihood just a quirk of your body, the same way having a slight curve in your penis is.

Okay, thank you. So, even if this developed later on it might be just due to puberty then?

I don't think we could really guess when or why this happened, to be honest; it's very possible you were born with this slight variation to your penis anatomy but it didn't become apparent until puberty. Either way, as Sam said it doesn't sound like it's something to worry about.
