There Are Four Types Of Penises In The World, According To Science

Penises! They’re so great, but they’re all so different.

Which is why Dr. David Shusterman, a urologic surgeon at New York Urology, to get the lowdown on exactly how different penises can be.

First things first, says Dr. Penis Shusterman: Penises are going to look different whether they’re erect or not. There are 4 distinct types of penises, not talking about length, or even girth here, but shape.

In some penises around 20% of the ones he’s seen, the head of the penis appears to be thicker and bigger than the body of the penis.

But in other penises, the head of the penis is actually smaller, and the penis ends in something of a point.

Some men around 10-20% have a slight upward curve to their penis. “There’s a suspensory ligament that holds your penis to your pelvis and it suspends your penis a little upward.” In most penises, says Dr. Shusterman, “the north-facing bend is about 5 to 10 degrees.”

And then there’s The Bender. Where men should be concerned, says Shusterman, is if they have an extreme curvature to their penis—something in the range of 30 to 60 degrees of curvature. That’s usually a sign of Peyronie’s disease.
