What makes an exceptionally good dick? To find out, I asked 20 women to share their preferences for the perfect penis. Some foreskin appears a bit saggy and sad. Girth is more important than length — about the thickness of a deodorant can.
When you become sexually aroused, blood flows into spongelike spaces inside your penis, expanding and stiffening it. A bent penis generally occurs when these spaces don't expand evenly. Most often, this is due to normal differences in penis anatomy, but sometimes scar tissue or another problem causes a bent penis and painful erections. Causes shown here are commonly associated with this symptom. Work with your doctor or other health care professional for an accurate diagnosis.
The cause is not yet understood fully, but it sometimes occurs after an injury to the penis when erect or it may run in families. If you do get pain, it may get better over time. However, in severe cases, the curve in the penis can make having sex difficult, painful or even impossible. Medicines and steroid injections are available but there is limited evidence of their effectiveness. But the NHS says doctors recommend waiting at least 12 months before considering surgery, as the condition can improve in some men without treatment.
The plaque builds up inside the penis, in the thick elastic membrane called the tunica albuginea. The tunica albuginea helps keep the penis stiff during an erection. The plaque can develop anywhere along the penis. As it develops, the plaque pulls on the surrounding tissues and causes the penis to curve or bend, usually during an erection.
