Question: Straighten slightly curved penis

 anonymous9 - Fri Nov 13, 2009 10:43 am


I'm lucky to have a wonderful boyfriend whom I love very much. Unfortunately, his penis has a slight curve. I do not think it is severe enough to be considered Peyronies disease, but it certainly interferes with our sex life. I really wish it were straight and I'm fairly sure he feels the same (not a fun topic). I've been looking online and I've seen ads for penis straightening devices, and I was wondering what medical professionals think of this. Is it safe? Does it work? Will it hurt him?

Thank you so much!

User avatar Hi,
Slight penile curvature should not generally interfere with sexual intercourse.If you still strongly feel that you can't overcome this inconvenience on your own(by trial and error), have your boyfriend examined by a urologist who will be able to guide you as to the next course of action.
As for penis straightening devices,none has been tested on a statistically significant scale to enable one to answer you with certainty.
Best wishes!
