A man who claims to have two penises has unveiled them – where else - on internet forum Reddit.
Having chosen the apt moniker DoubleDickDude (let’s call him DDD), the man claims to have been born with the rare congenital condition Diphallia and on Wednesday revealed dated (obviously NSFW) photographs of his what he says are his two appendages.
He added he is bisexual and in a committed relationship with a man and a woman.
Under an ‘Ask Me Anything’ header, DDD’s post: “I am the guy with two penises” attracted almost 12,000 comments in a matter of hours.
Amid the flurry of questions, DDD said he had considered having one of his penises removed as a teenager, but was now happy with his condition.
He also revealed he urinates from both organs and that both are capable of intercourse, though the right one is “a little more sensitive”.
Of the reaction of his lovers, he wrote: “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 for the most part, girls were nervous and some changed their mind at the last minute. Dudes NEVER change they mind, they always want it even if they’re freaked out a little.”
There’s little chance of verifying whether DDD’s tale of two penises (peni?) is true, though Diphallia is a true medical condition where a male infant is born with two organs (although one is usually removed within the patient's first year of life.)
The first known case was reported in 1609 and it occurs around once in every 5.5 million men in the United States.
According to the National Library of Medicine, associated "anomalies" including intestinal complications are "to be expected" in cases of Diphallia - though DDD reports no issues other than minor surgery in his teens to remedy tension issues where his urethra splits in two.
Two years ago we brought you the tale of Hazel Jones, a woman with two wombs and two vaginas – also known as uterus didelphys.
If DDD is the real deal we simply must introduce these two…
