    My groin area is somewhat pale, because it doesn't recieve much sun, but my cock is like it's been tanning for days, and it is a very dark brown. The area on my innerthighs that touch my cock also is this color. This happen to any of you other guys, and do you know why? Thanks!

    Well, one reason for the scrotum at least is to protect the sperm from UV radiation.

    Hunh ? Could you elaborate please? This seems counterintuitive to me as darker colors absorb UV rays, while lighter colors reflect? If it's for protection, why don't we all have this coloring?

    Melanin absorbs UV rays. Everyone knows this.

    I posted a similar query at the "old" LPSG...
    it is interesting, huh?

    My penis is darker than the rest of me (which
    is pretty pale), but
    still what would be considered a lighter flesh tone.

    I've seen some guys who are very dark,
    and sometimes, if they are circumcised
    you can see a "line"....where it is light up by
    the glans and darker on the shaft.

    I'm circumcised, but my penis is all the same
    color, pretty much

    HornyVeteranSJ: The different color variations cocks come in are awesome!!! It's almost like a fingerprint, everyone is different. Some are monotone, probably like yours txquis. Others can look like neopolitan ice cream minus the vanilla. Some show the color of the blood vessels and veins, while others don't. They can have moles, birthmarks, cut scar, inner skin, etc. Some guys have very transparent-like skin where you can actually see it turn hot pink, beet red, purple, even blueish tones on the cock and ballsack. And then some stay the same color flaccid or erect.

    OK, it was a legitimate question. You're a condescending pretender and you try to cover it up by not answering the question. Why would women need this protection if they produce no sperm and ovaries aren't anywhere near their vagina? Why, after nearly 50,000 years of wearing clothing would this still be a genetic necessity for some and not others? Why?

    Please, blow more smoke. Or better yet, blow me.

    It hasn't had any reason to disappear.

    Yup, thanks for confirming that you have no clue whatsoever. Geez, and to think I could've just coasted all these years by making up things.

    I thought that there was a post on one of the earlier incarnations of the board--it may have been the board just previous to this one--in which someone discussed that the skin coloration differences had to do with the fact that genital skin was of a different makeup than the skin on our bodies. The skin on our genitals is thinner and somehow that had some effect with the coloring. I don't really remember the whole gist of the post, but someone else might.

    As for mine, my penis and scrotum aren't any darker than the rest of my body...they are the same color until I get tan, and then they are lighter than the rest of my body. I have a very light circ scar ring. I've seen guys at the gym who had really dark looking dicks. It looked like they were dirty compared to the rest of their body. I guess there's no rhyme or reason as to how our melanin gets deposited in our penis....just luck of the genetic lottery.

    I like my darkened penis and ball color, for some reason it turns me on to see it a differetn color. above my circ. scar its a pale white though, and this color jump from dark tan to a pale white i like, its just neat to see different colors there.

    what happened to 'use it or lose it'??
    after 50 billion years of not using it, wouldnt it be lost :lol:

    Im waiting to be enlightened as well.
    i really do not like the darker color of myself down there, but alas its here to stay, with seemingly no reason!

    50 billion? The universe is only 10 billion years old.

    No, that only works for an individual; on a population scale, the mutation back to the "norm" has to occur again and be favored by certain conditions. You're thinking in Lamarckian terms. (Those damn giraffes stretching their necks continuously over generations!)

    In more modern terms, basically most traits have a hereditary influence, this inheritance changes randomly in certain generations, and because organisms with trait X have fewer offspring than those with slightly different trait X', those with trait X eventually go extinct simply because it affects the hereditary factor. (This isn't as simple as it sounds: Certain monkeys will alert the rest of the troop to the presence of predators. This of course alerts the predators to that individual monkey's presence, but it also gives the other monkeys, that monkey's brothers, sisters, sons and daughters, a chance to escape. And in turn, some of these monkeys have the gene to alert the rest of the troop to the presence of predators.)
