Okay. So. Um.
There’s no creative way to package this so we’re just going to tell it like it is and know that you’ll keep reading because there is literally nobody who wouldn’t want to keep reading this:
A man in the US was born with two penises.
He went on Reddit and did an AMA session (‘Ask Me Anything’) and graciously answered everybody’s curious questions. And there were about 12, 000 questions. Literally.
Here’s a quick run-down:
He has a condition called Diphallia, a very rare occurrence in which a male is born with two penises. Both are functional – meaning both can pee and both can ejaculate. No, he is not ashamed. Yes, he uses them both during sex, sometimes in the same hole at the same time (he’s bisexual, and both men and women have been able to take both at once).
Here’s some of the other questions people asked “DoubleDickDude” (probably not his real name):
Have you ever had any special reaction from a doctor with this?
DDD: Yeah, one grabbed like five others in the building. That was the last time my mom let anyone examine me for any reason besides personal check-ups. She said “my son is not a freak show” and slapped one of them. lol
Do they both hang to one side of your pants, or do they split the seam?
DDD: when i go commando, which is almost always except in winter, they take their own sides. the seam can be a pain sometimes because the skin between them is a little delicate and sensitive.
Has having both ever landed you in a situation where you wish that you only had one normal penis?
DDD: Two words: High school.
Are there any medical complications?
DDD: My prostate gets inflamed if I dont ejaculate enough. I’m probably the only guy with a legit reason to orgasm at least once every day or two days. My prostate gets stimulation from both cocks and creates a lot of seminal fluid. So when i cum it has to be squeezed every few days to get all the excess out. otherwise it feels bloated and painful.
Are you a Ghostbusters fan? Have you ever crossed the streams?
DDD: HAHAHAHAHAHA. you can never cross the streams, it would be bad.
Do you shower at the Y or wait until you get home? How do you deal with the triple takes? I’m assuming you get stares and not just sneak-a-peaks.
DDD: I generally avoid public bathrooms and if I do use one i try to use the stall and not a wall urinal. There’ve been times where I’ve had to use the urinal and because i have one muscle that controls my piss, it lets the stream flow out both my dicks. so unless i pinch off one of them it comes out both and that doesnt feel good. So I have to take both out to pee. Yeah Ive gotten stares and even had a few guys at various times go HOLY SHIT.
Do you have a favorite?
DDD: Yes. the right one. The left one has a grudge against me for it too. lol
Was there a reason your parents didn’t consider having the ‘second’ one removed when you were a kid?
DDD: Yeah. Because I was born with it for a reason. My mom admitted recently she had no idea what that reason was, but it’s there so it stays there. Glad she did, after everything because I really am one in millions. besides the ego boost it really makes a person feel special knowing there is likely no one else like you alive right now.
It is so fantastic that he is comfortable with who he is and willing to answer everybody’s pretty personal questions about being a man with Diphallia. He’s so comfortable in fact, that he has provided pictures.
And because we know you want to see said pictures, we have provided links (all in the spirit of education of course).
It’s official: On the third day of January, the Internet reached its peak for 2014.
And just because this gallery always seems to entertain… Things that accidentally look like penises.
