    I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me the answer to this complex question.
    What/how make's the shape of the penis meaning ones that curve sharply upwards or curve away from the body and up(Banana up) to ones that stick straight out in a perfect flat line to the ones that curve downwards(Banana down) some go slightly to the left or right i have seen some that when hard almost have a right angle shape.
    When a penis is flaccid it is impossible to tell what shape it will take once engorged with blood.
    Now remember guys this has nothing to do with size cut or uncut or race creed or colour.
    I am amazed with cocks that are huge and simply defy gravity then some that are huge and can not hold their head's up.
    Any doctors or physician's out there that have studied this are welcome to comment.

    actually sometimes it does have to do with cut. I have seen ones cut tight enough on one side that it pulls it that way.

    Except the first pic (pronounced bend to his right) and the last pic (pronounced bend to the his left) - both big dicks - are not circumcised/cut. Something else happening there?

    I've wondered that myself. I would prefer to have the upward curved (banana) type I have the outward and slightly down curved type.

    I was thinking that the way the penis is placed in the underwear from a puberty age can make the shape of an erection.
    Do we think that is a reason for shape.
    Or is it a ligament thing apparently there is a ligament attached somewhere on the pubic bone attached to the base of the penis that may have something to do with the pulling of the penis closer or away from the body ?.

    interesting question!
    you can thank the shape of your penis mainly to your genes. how you put your cock in your underwear does not have much to do with it.
    a lot of things can occur congenitally, that may result in a curved shape:

    1. if the tunica albuginea is shorter on one side (--> curvature in all directions is possible)
    2. if the corpus cavernosa (erectile tissue) is shorter on one side (--> curvature in all directions is possible)
    3. if the urethra is shorter (--> downward curve and urinary opening is not at the tip of the penis)
    4. tight frenulum (--> glans of the penis is forced downward)

    ...


    Some accidents, injuries can also change the shape of your penis.
    or peyronie's disease, where a plague on the erectile tissue may cause curvature in all directions.

    For the angle of your erection is manly the suspensory ligament responsible. a tight ligament can mean an erection towards your belly while a loose ligament may result in an erection pointing straight to the floor.
    deformities in this area can cause a rotation of the penis shaft.


    so as you can see, there are a lot of factors which are responsible for the shape of your penis. thats why all dicks are special :biggrin1:

    I've kinda wondered the same thing. I too have a curved penis (hence user name) and wondered why it curved. I've heard many reasons but really have few answers. The OP did not want certain factors to change the subject (circ, race etc) but I'm going to go a little down the race road. Looking at porn I've noticed that most men of color (black, cuban, dominican etc) tend to have very pronounced curves (meaning left or right not up or down) in their dicks and most white men have perfectly straight dicks. This makes me think that genetics has a strong correlation to the shape of the penis. Maybe the shape of the penis is decided at conception and nothing will change that. Saying that if you put your penis to the left in underwear will cause it to hang to the left. I think that if it naturally curve left it will be place to the left in underwear because it is simply more comfortable.

    The penis is a plant. Plants grow faster on the darker side causing the plant to bend towards the sun to get more light. If you wear underwear with a fly, there is light that enters the underwear on one side and causes the penis to grow unevenly and bend to one side.

    Another possibility is that the penis grows towards the hand that pleases it. So by looking at the penis, you can tell if the guy uses his right or left hand :)

    I have wondered if that was true as well to some degree. I wore briefs until around 15 or so and always had my cock pointing up. (it made it easier to hide a random erection in high school too) But it was always just more comfortable than having my dick stick to my nutsack all the time.

    My erection points up at a 20-30 degree angle from level w/the ground. Also curves up a bit.

    Genetics or "years of training"?

    Interesting thoughts and obsevations: genetics seems to be the main answer. But there are appreciable numbers of Europeans with left (and less frequently right) curves:

    I have always thought that it was the length and uniformity of the suspendory ligament.
    From Wikipedia.....In males, the suspensory ligament of the penis is attached to the pubic symphysis, which holds the penis close to the pubic bone and supports it when erect.
    Surgically cutting this ligament allows more of the penis to hang outside the body, thereby increasing its length. The ligament is then encouraged to heal in an extended state, promoting a longer penis overall. Until this ligament is properly healed, the penis cannot achieve a high angle of erection when engorged.

    Actually this is not always the case with left and right curves, at least in some men. You sometimes see flaccid cocks with a definite left or right orientation (I can think of a man in my swimming club whose cock is slightly but noticibly twisted to the left, though I've never seen him hard, but I can't imagine the curve being any less, and probably much more pronounced).

    In other cases you can't tell. My floppy is completely straight, but I curve even with a semi.
