Q & A 1: Did Excessive Masturbation Damage My Penis? It’s Swollen And Bent!

I highly recommend seeing a urologist – which is a doctor that specializes in male genitals – as soon as you can. I am not a medical doctor and cannot diagnose you, but what you are describing warrants a medical exam.

Masturbation and partnered sex usually do not result in swelling of the penis or a change in its pointed direction. This is a rare occurrence. There is something called penile fracture that can happen during masturbation, partnered sex, or even rolling over onto an erect penis. What happens is that, when a penis is erect, the tube-like structures inside the penis called corpora cavernosa become firm, as they are filled with blood. If the erect penis hits against something – for example, accidentally hits against the outside of a partner’s body while thrusting in and out – then the lining around the tube may snap. Sometimes this may make a sound like a snap or a pop. From there, swelling and bruising may occur. Some people experience pain. It’s generally considered a medical emergency and can result in changes to the directional point of the penis and, sometimes, even to how the penis functions as with erections.

Again, I cannot tell you whether this is what happened to you or not, but what you do know is that something happened to you while masturbating that resulted in a swollen penis, a change in point, and changes to how your penis looks and feels that have lasted for months. As such, I want to strongly encourage you to see a urologist as soon as you can so that you can work together to care for your sexual and genital health.

Q & A 2: Suddenly I Have Hair Around My Ass! Is This Normal For Women?

Yes, some people get pubic hair that extends down the thighs quite a bit and some people have it grow quite close to the navel. And yes – many people grow some hairs around their anal opening. As a result, some waxing salons offer waxing of the genitals as well as the anal area. But it’s also okay to just keep your butt hairs as they are… there’s no need to remove hairs around the anal opening unless having them bothers you.
