A man claiming to be suffering from the condition known as diphallia – or, double penis - recently posted pictures of them online to Reddit, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
The condition affects around one in every six million boys in the US. However, most choose to have one removed at an early age. Amazingly, the two penises are fully-functioning and each is capable of operating independently from the other
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 question was whether he had ever considered having one penis removed.
He replied: 'In my mid-teens, yeah. Now, hell no. Besides the ego boost it really makes a person feel special knowing there is likely no one else like you alive right now.'
The man further explained that he has one pair of testicles which split into two fully-formed penises that are individually able to achieve erection and climax.
It appears that he also has an unusual lifestyle when it comes to relationships. He says that he met his now boyfriend and girlfriend when they were in a monogamous relationship and the three have been together, exclusively, ever since.
He claims to be able to us both penises at the same time with different people. He said that his most memorable sexual encounter involved six other people - three women and three men.
A negative aspect of his condition is that his prostate gets so full of seminal fluid that it has to be released every few days. The man seems to be fortunate in that diphallia is often accompanied with other congenital abnormalities, which he appears to have escaped.
The first report of the condition was made by physician Johannes Jacob Wecker in 1609 after seeing a corpse with two penises.
