Just about close enough to fifty percent of the worlds population have one. Of course we are talking about a penis. But have you ever heard of a man having two penises? Probably not, until just recently that is because a man revealed his remarkable condition of being endowed with two penises on social networking site Reddit recently.
The man from the US recently revealed his condition on the AMA (ask me anything) topic on Reddit. He revealed not only that he has two penises, but they are also fully functioning, being able to urinate, gain and maintain an erection and ejaculate. Not only that, but he has used both at the same time during sex. The man got about 12,000 questions about his double wangs.
How common is it for a man to have two penises?
You may be thinking that it is a hoax, but he posted pictures online of his appendages. Although posting pictures doesn’t guarantee that it hasn’t been photoshopped. So what makes the unique condition real? The condition is called Diphallia, and believe it or not, it occurs in about 1 in every 5.5 million births in the US alone. The first reported case in history was by Johannes Jacob Wecker in 1609.
If you’re a dude you’re probably thinking how cool it would be to have two penises, but it comes with conditions, some pretty harsh ones at that. When a male is born with diphallia it is usually accompanied with renal, vertebral, hindgut, anorectal or other congenital anomalies, not to mention embarrassment and awkward conversations with future partners. There is also a higher risk of spina bifida. Males born with this two penis condition also have a higher mortality from various infections caused by the more complex renal or colorectal systems.
Here are just a few of the questions and answers from the Reddit thread:
