A bent penis is almost always the result of a mechanical injury of some kind, as opposed to a pathological disease.
The injury is often so subtle that you didn't even know it was happening. But, it can cause quite a severe turning!
A mechanical injury is an injury like a bruise, a broken bone, a cut that scars. It is caused by some form of trauma (injury). It is the result of an impact or pull (tear).
A pathological disease is caused by virus, bacteria, or parasite (like a common cold, mumps, tuberculosis, etc). Or degeneration (like cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc...) "Pathology" in it's most basic sense means "deviating from normal health". It is what we call "sickness".
Bent penis, however, is virtually always caused by some type of physical trauma or stretching: like a kick, a strong twist, rough sex, tight clothing, aggressive mastrubation...
There is virtually always some type of physical trauma or pulling involved. I can not think of a case where this was not true. And for that reason, it is almost always very easy to fix.
Bent penis will form in some men, from these things, and not in other men because: not every body is as strong as the next or heals the same way. Some men are stronger than others. They are healthier. They have better recuperative powers. And genetics plays a big role too.
Some men can get whacked pretty hard and not even get a bruise. Other men barely get touched and they get bruised and break bones.
Along the same line, some men get cut badly and you really don't see a scar. Other men get a deep scratch and get a scar that is big thick and obvious.
In between those two ends we have the rest of us.
Part of that is genetic. A bigger part of that is nutritional.
The bending often appears to have no cause for just this reason. But there is always a cause! When man has a penile structure that was injured sufficiently and then scarred, he found himself with a bent penis. It's no mystery!
Bent penis, however, is most frequent caused by scarring.
Bent penis condition apparently exists in about 4% - 5% of the male population. That's a lot! That's millions of men! You're not alone.
The primary reason for the penile curvature is scar tissue. An impact, strain, or pull occurs in the or the tissue under the skin, or in the corpus cavernosum (the tubes that fill with blood during erection). As the body mends this injury, scar tissue is formed.
The other reason is over stretching of one side of the shaft from tight clothing, pulling regularly to one side during masturbation, etc. That is the most baffling bent penis to doctors because there is usually no scar tissue at all.
Scar tissue is not nearly as elastic as regular or normal tissue (skin, muscle, fascia, etc...). So, when a man with scarring in his penile tissue gets an erection, the scar tissue does not stretch as far as the normal skin or internal tissue. That make the erection curve in the direction of the scar(s). It's that simple!
And that is why you don't see the curving when it is
flaccid (soft and limp).
This was first discovered by Francois de la Peyronie in the year 1743. And that is how bent penis became referred to as Peyronie's Disease.
Peyronies Disease is not, however, a true "disease". It is a condition.
Bent Penis is not an STD (sexually transmitted disease), you can not catch it from sexual intercourse. But you can develop it from rough sex in strange positions that cause the erect shaft to be turning unnaturally.
The reason there are so many bending erections from scar tissue is that most people scar too easily. And, scar tissue lacks the elasticity (strechability) of normal tissue.
These are two of the vital nutrients necessary for soft flexible (yet strong) body tissue. These nutrients can also soften existing scars and are used by some better doctors to help relieve the problem.
Saturated fat is also instrumental in proper healing. With the "low fat diet" insanity that is so prevalent today, it's no wonder there are so many men with this erection arcing problem as well as a number of other problems that come from lack of healthy fat in the diet.
A "low fat diet" is totally unhealthy and unnatural! It will also actually increase your risk of both heart attack and stroke. That's a statistical fact! Don't believe the hype. The veins and arteries become weak and brittle when there is not enough saturated fat (meat fat or butter) in the diet.
Almost everyone likes to experiment with different sexual positions. Those that don't, fantasize about it. Let's be real! Sex should be fun. It is healthy and good for you!
The thing is, if you start doing sexual things that cause your
erection to make severe and painful bends, your are begging for some
scarring or even what is known as a
In either case, you'll be heading toward a bent penis. Maybe even a severely crooked one!
So be careful and cautious with the acrobatics!
Masturbation is responsible for a lot penile curvature. The reason is, a man usually masturbates with the same hand and is regularly pulling his erection to one side or the other. The tissue under the skin and corpus cavernosum (tubes inside the shaft that cause erection) on the side being pulled, can stretch significantly over time. The shaft starts to curve in the unstretched direction on erection.
That is usually just called a curved erection because it usually is not too radical. Usually.
Here's another one of the great mistakes: Men taking direct penile injections for erectile dysfunction. They're whipping a tired horse instead of feeding it properly and giving it rest. You want a quick fix, you pay for it dearly!!
The horse eventually drops dead. The man eventually becomes totally impotent. But, in the process, all that injecting keeps making lots of tiny scars. They become a scar mass when repeated in the same place. Then the erection starts to arc off in the direction of that scar mass.
Some men with a bent penis (Peyronie's disease) experience hardened
tissues in other areas of their bodies, like the hands or the feet.
That is usually a condition called
Dupuytren's Contracture is a cord-like thickening across the palm. It causes the fingers to pull inward. Dupuytren's Contracture is not common, but it is also associated with Peyronie's disease.
"....Thank you William for making this problem so easy to understand...."
"....I didn't realize the solution could be so simple...."
"....The surgery scared me. So I tried the traction.
Now I am happy to tell you I no longer have to have the surgery...."
"....that little device is one of the best investments I ever made...."
Straightening out the arcing, bowing, or even a zig zag (multiple
scars/plaque formations in different areas) is almost always very
simple. Yes, really! Almost always. It doesn't matter what caused it. It
just takes some time and
the proper equipment.
So don't despair! Your bent penis does not have to be a permanent source of pain and embarrassment any longer.
