For the last two days, articles about “anal Botox” have been blowing up my Facebook and Twitter feeds, with most of the headlines (like this one from Cosmo) saying something along the lines of “Anal Botox Is A Thing, And Costs Up to $25,000.” To me, the surprising thing about these headlines wasn’t that people were putting Botox in their butts, but what they were supposedly paying for it.

The number of men seeking to enhance the size of their penises is on the rise, with guys lining up to buy everything from pills to pumps to stretching devices to fat injections, all designed to give them extra inches in length and/or girth. My guess is that most of you reading this probably already knew that; however, what you might not have known is that men's interest in genital enhancement actually goes well beyond the penis.

I read a fascinating Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Reddit the other day entitled: “I am the guy with two penises.” It was written by a very sexually active man who claims to have been born with two “100% functional” penises (of which he posted some NSFW photos for the curious among us). After reading about his sexual exploits (including a seven-person orgy involving some acrobatic feats of coordination), relationship history (he's currently in a committed relationship with a man and woman), and what it was like for him to grow up with an extra penis, I couldn’t help but ask one question: “Is this for real, or just a clever story crafted by someone who is very good with Photoshop?” So, I did a bit digging into the medical literature to find out. Although my research cannot directly speak to the authenticity of this particular Reddit author and his life story, what I discovered is that having two functional penises is indeed possible and this would not be the first documented case.Read More
A new study looking at the link between men’s testicular size and their parenting qualities has been making the rounds in the media lately, with provocative headlines ranging from “Choose Dads with Smaller ‘Nads” to “Dudes with Smaller Balls are Better Parents” to “Big Testicles Indicate Rubbish Dads.” The message is pretty clear: if you’re looking for a baby daddy who’s going to stick around and take care of your kids, look for the guy with the smallest testicles you can find. However, before you go and dig out the measuring tape, it's worth taking a closer look at the details of this study.
