It is not uncommon to find men undergoing penile modifications. Each person who experiences the modifications has different justifications for the acts. Some do it for personal gratifications and sexual pleasure, others modify their penis for religious and cultural reasons, and others carry out extreme modifications due to mental illness. Whatever the reason, this compilation doesn’t condemn but instead informs those who aren’t aware of the different types of penis modifications. Here is a description of some of the craziest forms of genital modification.
The process involves splitting the penis into two halves during a surgical operation. Splitting of the penis occurs in different ways as described here.
An inverted procedure involves cutting of the penis from the middle down while leaving the head intact.
The process entails a split of the penis into two halves from the head all the way down the shaft. Ideally, anyone who has undergone the modification experiences a curled penis during an erection. Complete shaft splitting can result in hard penetrative sex. However, if done correctly, such an individual can enjoy sex with intense stimulations.
For head-splitting, only the head of the penis is cut into two leaving the shaft intact. If a male has a very thin meatus, then a meatotomy is done first. Meatus is the small hole on the head of the penis and through which males urinate. Meatotomy is then the process of expanding the meatus before the splitting procedure takes place.
Sounding is whereby a male decides to put a sound device into their urethra. A sound is a therapeutic tool meant for the pleasure of stretching and expansion of a urethra. An example of a sound is the prince wand which is long and extends through the shaft of the penis. A sound often has beads protruding to the outside of a penis.
Re-route of the urethra
Weird as it sounds, some people have found ways to modify their bodies such that they don’t urinate through the tip of their penis. The practice is common amongst the male gender because the location of their urethra is close to the skin and located just between the scrotum and the anus. The process involves piercing a small hole between the anus and the scrotum while remaining careful about the depth of the incision. This process is medically safe because it does not interfere with the bladder.
Insertion of beads underneath the skin of the penis is the latest trend across the world. The idea is mainly aimed at maximizing pleasure for women during sex. Some men even go to the extent of sticking beads on their foreskin just before penetrative sex. The beads give the feeling like the one realized when using a studded condom.
For the penis pearling, doctors keep advising against home done procedures because they could lead to injuries, infections, body rejection of the pearls, and worse still tetanus. Eventually, it could lead to the amputation of the penis. However, if done by a professional who has vast knowledge about the anatomy of the penis, the process is harmless.
The practice originates from Greece and the Arabic world, where the slave trade was prevalent. Ideally, the penises of male slaves were infibulated to prevent them from fornicating or masturbating instead of working. During infibulation, the foreskin of the penis was pulled above the head and stitched together as a punishment. The punishment was considered worse than a death sentence.
However, currently, men carry out the infibulation of their penises at will. Some do it during acts of BDSM while others have a fetish. Some male theatre artists infibulate their penises so that they don’t dangle during live performances. Apparently, the artists consider floppy penises as an embarrassment during a performance.
Penis modification has become a trend in the 21st century. Some men do it for sexual stimulation, while others have religious and cultural affiliations that advocate for such practices. Whatever the reason for a genital modification, it should be safe and observed by a medical practitioner to avoid adverse effects. Examples of penis modifications are penis infibulation, penis bisection, urethra re-route, penis pearling, and sounding.
