Annie Fox for Teens... Hey, Terra!

Annie (AKA Hey Terra!) has been around long enough to have experienced a lot of what Life can dish out. But, it hasn’t been so long that she's forgotten what it's like to be your age. Check out some of the thousands of email questions teens from around the world have sent to Terra. You may learn something useful from her answers:

Health:
“My penis leans to the right.”

Hey Terra,

This may sound weird but it's true, my penis leans towards the right a bit. Will this affect me any way, or is there any way to change this? I think it may be because of masturbation but I'm not sure. Why didn't I have this before?

Worried

Dear Worried,

The angle of your penis is genetic. (In the same way that the shape of your toes and ears, etc. are pre-determined by genes.) A normal penis can "lean" and it's not a problem. You probably didn't notice it before because, like other parts of your body, your penis has grown as you've gotten older. This has nothing to do with masturbation and it will in no way affect your ability to perform or to father a child.

I hope this helps relieve your worries.

In friendship,

Terra
