A curved down penis often causes more problems than any other type of bent or curved penis.

The reason is: It is usually more difficult to have sex with this kind of bending. Especially if the bending is severe.

It seems that the only position possible is doggie style and even that may not work out too well simply because of the way the vagina is shaped.

It’s Easy To Fix A Curved Down Penis

Do not despair!

A curved down penis is just as easy to correct as any other type of bent or curved penis.

And, as with any penile bend, you don’t have to make it 100% straight to have it working 100% comfortably again.

Is A Curved Down Penis A Disease?

First, penile bending of any kind is rarely from a disease.

A bent or curved erection usually develops later in life, generally after 40. But, it can happen at any time.

It is almost always classified as “Peyronies Disease”.

Just calling it this makes a man panic and fear for his entire future sex life.

Here’s the really good news:

Peyronies is not a “disease”.

It’s a simple condition which I will explain to you in detail.

So, if this is the first page you’ve read on this site, you can relax.

A curved down penis is rarely a serious problem.

This Is What Is Happening

Peyronies is just a simple (though personally horrifying) bend caused by a scar and or fibrous plaque formation inside your shaft that will not stretch during erection like the rest of the shaft.

That’s ALL it is.

You’ll notice your cock looks perfectly normal when flaccid (limp). Right?

That’s because nothing has to stretch. It all just hangs there evenly.

But, when you get an erection, this scar and/or plaque makes your penis bend in the direction of the scar/plaque because it is not stretching like the rest of your shaft.

If there are numerous scars inside, your erection can bend in a number of ways at once.

Usually it is just one.

With a curved down penis the scarring is on the underside of the shaft and it makes your cock bend down when erect.


That is ALL there is to it.

That is why
Peyronies is NOT a “disease”

This Peyronies "disease" condition was given it’s name over 250 years ago. Only because it was a man by the name of Francois De La Peyronie who discovered what was causing all this penile bending in mature men.

Originally it was called Peyronie’s Disease.

See what happened?

Are you getting the picture?

OK... Let’s go on....

But, How Did I Get A Scar In There?

This is a really good question, and the most important question in understanding why “disease” is an incorrect label here.

Most men never realize how they hurt themselves in there.

That is what leads to the false notion that Peyronies Disease is a “mystery”. “We don’t really know where it comes from.”


We know.

Everything has a cause and this is such a basic simple cause that it is almost always overlooked.

So here is the answer:

Sometime in your life, while you were having sex or maybe even masturbating too hard, you bent your erection too much. (It was never designed to bend at all when hard.)

Most often this happens when a man slips out of the vagina and, in the heat of the moment, tries to enter too hard and too fast and misses!

Ouch! You felt your cock bend a bit, or just hurt, and then, unless you broke it, you went right back about your sexual activity.

Sound familiar?

The “Ouch”!
Is Where It Began

Well, that “ouch” was your erectile chamber (the parts inside that fill with blood to make your cock hard) over stretching and tearing a bit. But, you may never have even seen a bruise.

That may have been 20 or more years ago, also.

So why did you get the curved down penis now?

Because the tear and subsequent scar (that healed it) were pretty soft at first.

For most men the scar stays soft and softens even further as time goes by and stretches enough for a normal erection.

HOWEVER: In some of us men (about 5-9%) our scars harden and sometimes add stiff fibrous plaques later in life. Sometimes 20 or more years later.

This hardening process is due to genetics and/or diet. It’s that simple. There’s no mystery.

When the scar(s) starts to harden, it will not stretch as much during erection. So our shaft starts to bend when we get erect.

At first we don’t even notice it. Or, we tell ourselves (as I did): “I didn’t realize my penis was curved.”

Over time it can bend a lot more.

The more the scar hardens, and the bigger the scar is, the worse the bend becomes.

You can watch it change over 1, 2, or even 3 years.

Like I said, at first most of us really don’t notice it. Or, think anything about it.

Then one day we look and..... “What the hell happened???!!”

Why It Is So Scary

That’s when we usually go see a doctor or two because we are never taught about a curved down penis or any other kind of penile bend, or Peyronies “disease”, when we are young.


When you were talking to your friends and saying something like:  “...Yeah, me too. We going at it like wild monkeys. I slipped out and when I was going back in I missed and it hurt like hell!”

Did any of your friends ever say: “Oh, then you probably tore something in there and you may get Peyronies disease later in life.”



And, we never heard about it in sex education class either.

So how are we supposed to know?

Then, when it happens, seemingly out of nowhere, it really scares us!

There Is No Need To Worry

There is really no need to worry about your curved down penis if you are like 99.99% of us. You’re in the right place here.

Soon you’ll know enough to understand the entire situation. And, you’ll be able to straighten out your curved down penis simply and easily, without surgery, if you are like 99.99% of us who have been where you are right now.

"This condition
 is actually
one of the easiest
physical abnormalities to correct."

Let me explain:

Straightening A Curved Down Penis

A curved down penis, just like any other penile curvature, just needs some correct stretching of the hard scar/plaque inside.

You don’t have to have it surgically removed.

You only need to stretch it out.

And, that is what so many men do not understand.

You Can Hurt Yourself
You Do It Wrong

How do you do stretch it?

Well, first: You don’t want to just randomly pull on your cock because you could wind up stretching the wrong part and make it worse.

You could tear something inside that way and have another even worse bend later.

Or, you could wind up breaking the blood vessels inside and get a cock that it now has a permanently purple tip.

Or, you could pull too hard and damage the nerves and lose sensation......

You have to stretch it safely. And, that is easy to do.

The Safest Most Effective Method

The best method for straightening your curved down penis is called correct penis traction.

Correct traction
 has been clinically proven to be
far safer than surgery.

Correct traction is so good that it is medically endorsed and recommended in 29 countries worldwide. Including the USA.

And, the best traction devices in the world cost only about $400. So, any man can afford to use one.

Compare that to a highly risky $16,000 penile straightening surgery.

Nice huh?

And, you risk none of the possible horrible surgical side effects.
