Sex

If you are a woman who enjoys sex with men, the chances are fairly high that when it comes time to talk about the penis, you have seen your fair share. And you probably know that a man's penis is his pride and joy.

No matter how much time you've spent considering the glory of his penis, he's definitely spent roughly 1,000 percent more time thinking about it.

But you see it from a different vantage point, and as such you might be the first one to notice when something is not right down below. That's especially true if you notice he has a curved or crooked penis.

While it's completely normal for a penis to be curved, as some men are familiar with, sometimes this shape is indicative of a medical issue.

Men should be concerned if they experience pain when holding an erection or pain during sex, an increase in the curve, having a significant curvature in the penis, or feeling nodules in the penile tissue.

For men experiencing these issues, in many cases, they are signs of Peyronie’s Disease, a condition that results from fibrous scar tissue on the penis causing curvature and pain.

If you notice that a man has a crooked or curved penis, or at least bent more than what you would deem normal, here are 6 things you need to know.

1. Every penis has a different shape.

If you look at a flaccid penis and notice a little bit of curvature, that's totally normal. In fact, it will change with gravity, because that's what gravity does.

Human beings are all made a little bit differently. This goes double for the penis. They are each special snowflakes. A penis that lists slightly to the left when flaccid is 100 percent normal.

2. An erect penis normally bends.

It's normal for an erect penis to curve slightly to the left or the right or, uhh, north or south. That's because of what happens to the body during an erection.

The blood vessels of the penis flood, causing it to stiffen and straighten. But for most men those blood vessels are not identical in makeup to the penis that houses them. The external penis moves around its internal parts, which can cause a normal amount of curvature.

3. A bent penis can make certain sex positions feel great.

It sounds silly, but it's true! You know how some vibrators are shaped oddly, like, differently than a penis? That's so they can do stuff like better access your G-Spot.

If his curved penis bends to the south, you should try the doggy style sex position. It has the potential to change your sex life forever.

4. If his penis is very bent when he's erect, there's a name for that.

If his penis is straight while flaccid but bends when he's erect, he could have Peyronie's disease.

Peyronie's disease is caused by plaque that can surround the tubes which make the penis become erect. They form scar tissue that gradually bends the erect penis.

It's common in men over 40 and is highly treatable if caught early on.

5. Masturbation can cause a penis to bend.

The penis might not look like it (especially during an erection), but it's a pretty sensitive little guy.

Masturbating with too much force or without lubrication can cause damage that leads to scar tissue which, as we've covered, leads to a bend or a curve in the penis that wasn't there to begin with.

6. A curved penis could be something serious.

If his penis suddenly has a slight curve to it, and he's complaining of abdominal pain or he has to go the bathroom a lot more than usual, a urethral obstruction could be to blamed.

These are caused by blockages to the urethra. If he has these symptoms, it would be best that your guy sees a doctor right away to play it safe.
