Question:

Sir,

I just want to know if it is advisable to wear loose clothing or even no underwear while sleeping at night? The thing is I have just noticed my penis is bending at an angle now (I haven't measured the bend) and I have a scar on the underside of my penis. Is the scar causing this bend or the underwear? I  have recently got married and I haven't had difficulty while having sex before. I have not had sex for the last three months as I am working in the gulf and, therefore, am far away from my wife.

Answer:

The shape your penis takes when you are erect is determined by the chambers within your penis. There are three of them, two on top and one on the bottom in a triangle layout. If damage occurs or even just a small thing like cholesterol building up in one part, a slight bend may occur. The change may have occurred a while ago and you just had not noticed since you were able to have sex with your wife. Now that you are temporarily going without sex, small things that you would have overlooked suddenly becomes important.

External clothing doesn't make a difference to the shape of your penis. Many men find loose clothing or no clothing at night more comfortable because of the erections that occur at night. But it is all a matter of personal preference. Lightweight clothing or no clothing at night also helps your skin to stay less moist and can be useful if you are prone to jock itch.

All men have what appears to be a scar-ridge on the underside of their penis. It is most pronounced on the scrotum and just below the glans at the end of the penis. It has been there from before you were born and is caused by the way the penis and scrotum are formed in the womb.

Now if you are saying that you injured your penis and the wound healed over with a scar, then yes, this can cause a bend in the penis. Scar tissue is not as flexible as the original tissue. If the scar is the cause, then the bend will be toward the side with the scar. If the bend is slight, then there is nothing to be concerned about. If the bend is greater than, say 20 degrees, then you might need to see a doctor. I would recommend starting with a urologist.
