Penis curvature is one of those unpleasant problems plaguing men, filling them with anxiety and driving away peace of mind. A visible curve in the penis is bound to make any man less eager to take down his pants in front of a lady. What if she starts laughing? What if she recoils from it? Nobody likes to be seen as a freak or as something to be laughed about. Although the man in question is in no way responsible for this problem, others can’t help but see this as a failure or as a dubious physical feature.
On the other hand, some men are actually proud of their special look. A curved penis serves to underscore a rebellious or outré personality that refuses to bow to tradition. Moreover, a bent penis can be very desirable for women, too, because the curve allows the head of the penis to rub against areas not normally touched by a straight penis. Thus, it may be said that a special penis is not seen as a liability in certain circles. However, one should weigh carefully the pros and cons of a curved penis because most women still prefer a straight, normal-looking penis over a bent one.
Curvatures are caused either by the natural growth of the penis or by a condition knows as Peyronie’s disease. The natural curvature occurs when the two chambers of the penis develop at different rates through the years, thus bending the penis toward the slower developing chamber. There is no way that such a natural development tendency can be forecast and prevented, although it can be corrected whenever the user wants it. However, most men whose penises are bent refuse to seek the treatment that is within easy reach and would rather take their chances with the kindness of women.
Peyronie’s disease is a condition named after Francois de la Peyronie, surgeon to Louis XIV of France, who was the first man to describe a treatment in 1743. While the cause of this disease is not well understood, its mechanism is perfectly clear. The “tunica albuginea” is the tough layer of connective tissue that contains the sponge-like Corpora Cavernosa. For reasons unknown, scar tissue begins to form in the “tunica albuginea”, which prevents the normal expansion of the penis during erections and, in time, bends the penis to one side or the other.
The fully natural way of straightening the penis is to use penis exercises. Penis fitness programs, such as the excellent PenisHealth program, offer exercises that can break the scar tissue down and help reverse the curve. The Jelq is one such penis exercise that has been successfully used to address this problem. Another good way of dealing with a curved penis is to use a traction device. The constant pull of the traction device is bound to loosen up the “tunica albuginea” and straighten the penis.
Actually, your best bet is to try both of these two penis straightening techniques at the same time. This will speed up the healing process, although you have to realize that no miracle is going to happen over night. The scar tissue took a long time to form and is not going away fast. What you need is patience and persistence, the two tools that will take you to your goal. Exercise and wear the traction device everyday and you will see the bend disappearing little by little.
