More than a few women have discovered that the world of men’s penises can hold quite a few surprises. For example, many women have been with a man and surprised to discover that when he unveiled his manhood, what presented itself was a bent penis. This can be disconcerting to many women, raising questions about whether this is a penis health issue, how the member got that way in the first place, whether this will affect their ability to have sex, etc. This article will hopefully answer a few of the common questions about a man’s bent penis.

Not so unusual

First, it’s important to know that some curvature of the penis is not unusual - and, in fact, many women find a little bit of a curve to be aesthetically very pleasing. It is actually the rare erect penis that is perfectly straight. While there are no statistics kept on this, many doctors agree that the most common curvature is a slight curve upward, giving the penis a shape that is a bit more "banana" like. However, many erect penises also curve downward, to the left or to the right. It’s also not unusual for there to be some combination, such as a penis that curves both upward and to the left.

In cases in which the curvature is minimal, there is no cause for concern. However, if a man possesses a bent penis in which the degree of curvature is significant, he is said to have Peyronie’s disease and there may be some sexual issues to consider.

Peyronie’s disease

Named after the doctor who first wrote about it in the medical literature, Peyronie’s disease generally occurs due to trauma to the penis. The word "trauma" tends to bring to mind images of excruciating pain, and sometimes this is the case; for example, the trauma may have been caused by being punched very hard in the penis.

However, trauma can also refer to any event that causes tearing of tissue in the penis. This occurs more often than one might think. A man might couple with a woman without sufficient lubrication, for example, or might engage in an over-lengthy masturbation session; the rawness of these acts in some cases can cause slight tearing in penile tissue.

In the case of a blunt force blow trauma, a significant degree of tissue damage may occur. In the case of the aggressive or rough sex, the degree may be much smaller; however, if the trauma occurs repeatedly over time, the amount of tissue damaged can be substantial.

In either case, when the tissue heals, interior scarring occurs. In some cases, this scarring may prevent the repaired tissue from having the flexibility it once had. Thus when the penis becomes erect, the scarred area cannot expand as fully as the rest of the penis does, thus pulling the erect penis up, down or to the side, creating the bent penis.


Most men with a bent penis can still perform sexually with no problem. As a matter of fact, some women report that a bent penis - especially one that curves upward - is better at stimulating the clitoris.

However, in some cases the degree of curvature can be so extreme that intercourse is negatively affected. In such cases, some men may choose surgery as an option to straighten the penis.

Fortunately, a bent penis only rarely affects a man’s sexual congress with women. And whether bent or straight, the manhood needs to be healthy, so be sure he uses a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Look for a crème with vitamin C, a key component of collagen, which gives penis skin its tone and elasticity. The crème should also include L-carnitine, an amino acid that has been shown to protect against peripheral nerve damage from rough and aggressive sex.
