Is there a “sex toy or tool” to prevent additonal injury to my Peyronie’s penis?

Good day! 

Doctor,

Is there any "sex toy or tool" that can help not to get more injured when masturbating?

Thanks for being available to us  PD Warriors.

Greetings,

You are welcome, and thanks for being a Warrior.   It is my pleasure and my obligation to tell people about how to help themselves recover from Peyronie's disease without drugs or surgery.

For years I have listed a nice size group of such "Peyronies sex toy' items on the PDI website because they can indeed protect and support the shaft during intercourse and help prevent further injury when you already have Peyronies.   When the shaft is bent, curved, dented  or narrowed due to the underlying scar material it is extremely vulnerable to injury by collapsing or folding over during the rigors of intercourse and masturbation.  Any man with such a penile deformity should look at these devices to see what appeals to him – and use it to prevent additional harm.   Go to PDI store front and scroll down until you see the penis support devices to be used during intercourse.  

Of course, it is always best to slow down, use a reasonable and cautious technique while masturbating, and use plenty of sexual lubricant to avoid additional injury while masturbating.   Vibrators are always a safe tool to use since little friction or force is used.   TRH

Pictures of Peyronie’s Disease – Curved Penis

What does Peyronie’s disease look like?  Pictures of Peyronie’s disease

Pictures of Peyronie’s disease and the classic curved penis appear at the bottom of this page.  They will educate anyone interested in this terrible problem. Peyronie’s pictures are graphic full male nudity, presented for educational purposes.

Few men ever learn about problem before developing it. Even fewer know the full details of it. Men do not understand the full consequences of PD and degree of penis curvature possible, until it is too late. Thus, there is a tendency to underestimate Peyronie’s disease. Seeing pictures of Peyronie’s disease will clarify the problem.

Without fully understanding Peyronie’s disease, it is easy enough to avoid the image of their bent penis. The uninformed quickly accept the standard medical treatment to do absolutely nothing for PD in its early stages. It is easy to do nothing. They falsely assume non-treatment means Peyronie’s disease is a minor health problem.  Consequently, they do not take Peyronie’s disease seriously enough. Unfortunately, this avoidance allows the PD to worsen.

Importance of pictures of Peyronie’s disease

Most cases of Peyronie’s disease start with a small penis curvature.  It is easy to assume a small problem will stay “just a little curve, hardly noticeable.”  For a lucky few, the distortion starts small and stays small. However, for most the curve starts small and slowly worsens, perhaps more painful, and a bigger problem in life.  For 10-20% of men with PD, the curve or distortion eventually results in total loss of sexual function. At this point, most men resort to surgical correction.  For a discussion, click Peyronie’s disease surgery.

Peyronie’s Pictures: an Education and Wake-Up Call

It is important to understand and verify the nature of the Peyronie’s disease problem.  Men are shocked to see actual pictures of Peyronie’s disease for the first time.  It can be a real wake-up call.

Do not use these Peyronie’s pictures to make a self-diagnosis. PD is more than a curved penis.  Moreover, pictures cannot guide Peyronie’s disease treatment. These pictures of Peyronie’s disease should encourage prompt medical attention about any recent penis changes that might be PD.  Bear in mind, every man is a unique individual with unique physical characteristics.  These differences even extend to the appearance of the penis in health and disease. For this reason, do not think your penis must look like any of these to qualify for Peyronie’s disease.

Sometimes a normal penis has a curve.  Not all curved penises indicate Peyronie’s disease.  Therefore, only a physician can accurately diagnose this problem.

Understand what you will see

Before viewing these pictures of Peyronie’s disease, please review what causes these dramatic penile curves and distortions.

Peyronie’s disease is an exaggeration of the wound healing process.  Thus, in PD it is common to find one or more flat benign (non-cancerous) fibrous plaques or scars anywhere along the shaft of the penis. Usually there are only one or two scars, but multiple scars do occur.

These scars stop full expansion of the penis during erection.  Consequently, various degrees and patterns of bending and distortion result. Depending on the number, size and location of scar tissue, the penis responds in different ways.As a result, the penis can be curved, distorted, shortened, twisted, and painful, or combinations of any or all of these.

Pictures of Peyronie’s disease showing the erect penis from 5°- 45° are common and sometimes 90º or more. Sexual difficulty and impotency also range from mild to severe, depending on the degree of curved penis deformity.

Sure, the bent penis of Peyronie’s disease gets your attention.  However, PD is really all about the scar below the surface. Without that scar, there is no Peyronie’s disease.  For this reason, PDI puts so much attention on knowing the size, shape, density and surface features of the PD scar.  It is far more important to know about your PD scar, than to take pictures of your curved penis.

Peyronie’s Penis

What causes curved penis?

Before I discuss what can be called a “Peyronie’s penis,” it would be good to mention the normal penile curvature of many men.  Many men look for answers to “Why is my penis curved?” and eventually come to think they have Peyronie’s disease, when that is not the case.  They think that just because they have curvature of the penis, that it must be a Peyronie’s penis, when it is not.

Normal penile curvature

A small degree of curvature of the penis is common among men and can be considered normal, as many men are born with this benign condition, commonly referred to as congenital curvature. Probably the single best and easiest way to determine is a curved penis normal, is to answer the question “Have you had this curved penis problem all of your life?  When you were a small boy, was your erection bent?”  If the answer is “yes,” then it is most likely your current problem is not a Peyronie’s penis.

It is most common for the curvature of Peyronie’s disease to cause a bend or distortion that is angular or abrupt, like a sudden bend in the road, while a congenital curvature is usually gradual and milder in degree, like a banana.  Some cases of Peyronie’s disease will cause a gradual, mild, banana-like curvature, however.  Because no case of Peyronie’s disease can be diagnosed on the basis of the appearance of the curved penis, a doctor must evaluate the condition for other signs and symptoms.

When a man has Peyronie’s disease the condition is characterized by an internal scar or plaque, or hard lump that forms within the substance of the penis. Congenital penile curvature will not exhibit this internal scar material.  If the cause of the penile curvature is Peyronies, it will often appear rather suddenly, be accompanied by pain, be accompanied by some degree of lost penile length or girth, and cause a certain degree of erectile problem that has not been experienced before.   Not all of these factors must be present for a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease; the presence of the internal scar or lump is most valuable to make the decision.

Peyronie’s disease can cause pain, penile distortion and reduced sexual ability due to the presence of flat or cord-like internal lesions (scar tissue known as “plaques”) located on the top, bottom or sides of the penis within a thin but tough membrane known as the tunica albuginea.  Although it is a popular notion that Peyronie’s Disease always involves curvature of the penis, the scar tissue sometimes causes other distortions like a bottle neck deformity, an hour-glass deformity, or divots or indentations or nicks, rather than the classic curvature.

How to fix penile curvature

Once it has been determined that a man has only a normal congenital curvature of the penis, it is still possible to help him using a few parts of the standard Peyronie’s disease treatment approach.  He can use topical DMSO, Callisto topical vitamin E oil, Super CP Serum, and the gentle manual penis stretching technique developed by the Peyronie’s Disease Institute to make positive improvement safely and effectively once he knows he does not have a Peyronie’s penis.
