Most men hold their penis in high regard. It makes so much possible. Not only does it perform magnificently in its capacity as a fountain for urine, but it also brings a man his greatest pleasure. In form and function, it is a mighty thing. However, thanks to the "normalizing" of the penis in society, many men think there is something wrong with their third arm if it doesn’t look aesthetically perfect. Things like pigment, spots, bumps, veins, shrinkage, and skin elasticity, among others, can plague a man and make him insecure. Let’s talk about so-called penis imperfections - what penis oddities to worry about, and what’s normal.

Penis Imperfections That Are Quite Normal

There’s no real gold standard for a penis. They are all different. What’s important is that they’re healthy. When a man’s perception of a healthy penis is challenged by something he may consider a penis oddity, he can get anxious and jump to conclusions. Here is a list of 10 different kinds of penis "imperfections" that are totally normal, to help men everywhere put their penis in perspective.

1) The Lean - It’s extremely rare for a flaccid penis to hang perfectly centered, like a painting in the Louvre. Generally, the penis will favor one side or the other and will just hang out there.

2) The Minor Curve - Most penises have a slight curve to them. They can bend right or left, up or down.

If that curve is exaggerated between 20 to 30 degrees, a man may have Peyronie’s disease which can cause erectile dysfunction or painful erections as a result of scar tissue. This is a serious condition, and treatment should be sought immediately.

3) One Ball Hangs Low - Interesting fact, one testicle is bigger than the other, so it makes sense that the bigger, heavier one rests a little lower than its buddy.

4) Hyperpigmentation - Having darker genital skin is a very normal occurrence, especially when it affects the underside of the penis into the reproductive region. It’s merely the result of the sex hormones on melanocytes. Also, the circumcision line on the penis is often profoundly pigmented, as well.

5) Freckles, et cetera - Just like skin on the rest of the body, penile skin is subject to skin tags, moles, and freckles. However, if a man finds a growth that begins to change in size, color, or texture, he should get that checked out ASAP. If you can’t tell the difference between all the above, play it safe and make a doctor’s appointment for an exam.

6) Penis Bumps and Lumps - Noticing some little pearls around the head of the penis? It’s probably penile papules. They usually occur in 1 or 2 rows and are fleshy and transparent. If a man doesn’t like them, he can get them frozen or lasered off.

7) Purplish Skin Growths - Angiokeratomas (say that fast 5 times) are nonthreatening purplish skin growths that have a scaly surface and can appear on the scrotum. They are dilated thin-walled blood vessels with overlying skin thickening. They can sometimes bleed and nearly always cause panic since they resemble melanoma. If in doubt, get it checked out.

8) Loose Skin - Penile skin has a lot of hang to it unlike other parts of the body where skin is tight. This is completely normal because it needs to expand for erections. The other side of this is that it is a kind of deflated, droopy skin when not at attention. The good news is, it only sags more with age. Embrace it.

9) Very Veiny - Kind of like a spider’s web, every man has a unique venous pattern on his pecker. Some veins are slight, while others are prominent. Some are twisty, and others are pretty straight. It’s all good.

10) Shrink-a-Dink - Ever heard a guy say it was cold, and so penis size is inaccurate? Well, he’s right; size appraisal is all based on blood flow. When it’s cold, it’s harder for blood to pump through the body, making it harder for the penis to swell and show its shape. It’s natural and happens to every man.

Now that you know your penis is perfect, just the way it is, treat it to a daily treat. Massage a specially formulated penis health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) onto the penis every day to keep it smooth and soft. These types of oils also deliver penis health extras like L-arginine, alpha lipoic acids, and essential vitamins to make the penis strong and healthy for years to come.
