    Seriously. My penis is a dark chocolate. I am spanish with light brown to medium brown skin. My cock is deep chocolate. IMO, it kind of looks funny in comparison to the rest of my body. Is this normal?

    You must have the disease called "Eggplantius Dickosa." I hear that it's very common among Mediterranian men.

    It means your dick never needs to get a tan.

    This is perfectly normal. It just means that the skin on your penis has the melatonin producing cells more active than in the rest of your body, hence the darker colour. It also gives your penis better protection against the sun.

    Because of your genetics. Look at the Japanese guys: they have light skin color but their penises are dark.

    The reason the skin on your penis is so dark is because the skin is thinner there and the melanin more apparent. This is true on other parts of your body as well.

    Relax. It's normal for your penis to be darker than the rest of your body:cool:

    One of the "good" results of having the internet is that it provides opportunities to see others :wink: (via photos) with similar (ahem) "body characteristics".

    Hence, it can be very reassuring to see those who resemble ourselves without our having to go anywhere !

    From what I've seen on the net, skin pigment variations are apparently VERY common.

    The colour of the penis, especially the glans, becomes darker the more sex experience you have.

    About 2/3rds of my penis is significantly darker than the upper part. Don't know where this comes from, as I'm not sexually experienced. I do masturbate alot though. I've noticed this pigmentation in alot of porn actors.

    This statement tilts the Official Ludicrous Scale at about the same level as: "Masturbation will make your palms hairy, and eventually cause you to go blind"

    Skin pigmentation varies greatly among individuals. If the skin on your penis is dark, then perhaps you have ancestors who were that color. You may feel self-conscious about it but it is normal. Many people share this characteristic.

    Mine has a couple of different shades of color. Really never thought about why. But is an interesting thought.

    Thanks Simcha.

    There was a good answer earlier; its because of melanin.

    Do you tan easily? I do, because of my Italian heritage. Which means I have more melanin than most (I think?). Therefore my penis is dark.

    Similar to the colour I tan.

    I tan well if I just think about getting in the sun. I agree with your answer. Part Native American and part European so that is why I think mine is darker than the rest of me.

    It is common amongst latinos (and other groups as well) and perfectly normal...
