Curved - Bent Penis | Peyronie's Disease



Crooked shape of the penis - is masturbation a cause? What can be done to correct it?


Masturbation does not cause any physical deformity of the penis and is in no way harmful to health. Masturbation is normal and generally beneficial. There should be no worries or feelings of guilt on this aspect.


A curved penis is caused either by natural factors during the growth through adolescence to manhood or by a condition knows as Peyronie’s disease.

  • The natural curvature occurs when the two chambers of the penis (corpora cavernosa) develop at different rates through the years, thus bending the penis toward the slower developing chamber. The reasons for this uneven development are not known and this tendency cannot be forecast or prevented. However, there are treatments available for correcting the problem once it occurs.

  • 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.

    Although the disease is somewhat painful at first, the pain eventually goes away on its own. The only remaining effects of this disease are the curvature, which is visible when the penis is erect, and possibly a shortening of the penis in the flaccid state.

How to Straighten a Bent Penis


Various treatment options have been tried over the years. These include Vitamin E therapy, potassium aminobenzoate (a Vitamin B-complex) therapy and injections of calcium channel blockers, such as verapamil, directly into the penis. None of these treatments has a proven record of complete success, and the injections have been known to cause harmful side effects.


Surgery has been used a treatment option in the past. However, surgery on the penis carries a level of risk that we consider unacceptable.


Currently, the recommended treatment is application of a traction force applied to the penis to straighten the curvature - this has been proven effective and safe.


This procedure involves the use of a penis traction device. The constant pull of the traction force loosens up the “tunica albuginea” and then straightens the penis. In clinical trials at the international level, high levels of success have been recorded in treating curved penis / Peyronie's Disease with penis traction, with no harmful side effects.
