If you encountered a nice guy with a package that was discolored like this but otherwise normal (large-ish, hard, functional etc.), would you care? (These pics aren't of me-- I'm not ready for that step yet.) http://dermatlas.med.jhmi.edu/derm/IndexDisplay.cfm?ImageID=806284068 http://bp3.blogger.com/_lKq1w4vpMes/RfqceoLJmSI/AAAAAAAAA-M/xfRQ3iL6-MQ/s400/DSC00107.JPG http://www.drdicksexadvice.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/vitiligo_032904.jpg The condition is called vitiligo. It has no effects other than the discoloration itself and psychological upset that goes with it. Most people who have heard of it have heard of it because of Michael Jackson (his skin color change started as Vitiligo, in patches, and then he had himself bleached when it got out of control). It is very noticeable, because my skin is dark. It is not contagious, though.
