A man who claims to suffer from an extremely rare medical condition in which he was born with two penises has posted a picture online, attracting thousands of questions.
The anonymous man – who goes by the moniker ‘DoubleD*ckDude’ – spent more than six hours answering questions online after uploading the pictures to Reddit.
He claimed to suffer from a condition known as diphallia – where a boy is born with two fully-functioning penises, each capable of operating independently from the other – and included two pictures with the time and date.
The condition affects around one in every six million boys in the U.S. but most have one removed at an early age.
When he was asked how people react to his condition, he replied: ‘It varies from girl to girl.
‘Some have been like “wow”. Some have been like “that’s fake!” Some have freaked out like, called me names.
‘Most are pretty curious but I don’t have casual sex anymore, I stopped a few years back.’
Another asked whether he had ever considered having one penis removed.
He replied: ‘In my mid-teens, yeah. Now, hell no.’
The man, believed to be American, revealed in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ thread that he has one pair of testicles which split into two fully-formed penises that are individually able to achieve erection and climax.
He claimed he was in a bisexual relationship with a man and a woman.
BORN WITH TWO PENISES: THE RARE CONDITION THAT AFFECTS ONE IN SIX MILLION BOYS
-Diphallia is a rare medical condition where a boy is born with two penises.
-It often accompanies other congenital abnormalities such as vertebral or anorectal (structure of the anus and rectum) duplication.
-An estimated one in every six million boys in America are born with the condition.
-There is also a higher risk of spina bifida (pictured), a developmental congenital condition which causes some vertebrate protecting the spinal cord not fully form and remain open.
-In most cases the penises are the same size and sit side by side. In some men, the smaller penis will sit above the larger.
-A man with two penises can urinate from one or both.
-The first reported case was made by physician Johannes Jacob Wecker in 1609. He said that he observed a male corpse in Bologna, Italy with the condition.
