So are they left/right or upper/lower? I imagine that in either case, using a urinal might be a bit complicated.

Should you be visually oriented, here's a diphallus picture. NSFW, obviously.

I remember being 11 years old and playing Trivial Pursuit with my mother and her friends and the question "What does a man with diphallus have" came to me. And I knew the answer but wasn't sure it was OK for me to say it.

Not so sure this is a "blessing" as the thread title suggest.

Earwigs, snakes, lizards, and crustaceans aren't the only ones with paired sexual appendages. Some men have been reported to "sport" one or several extra penises and penises that naturally split in two. Duplication of the penis is an extremely rare anomaly with only about a hundres cases being reported since the first case reported by Wecker in 1609.

Can't help being amused by the name of the man who first reported this.

This link has an astonishing photo of this, obviously NSFW.

Realised my picture is different, even though our words were similar.

Reminds me of an old joke... My tailor asks if I dress left or dress right...I told him I was ambidexterous.

Notice he's cut twice. Wonder what the rabbi/doctor thought about that? Did he get a bulk discount?

The trivial pursuit question was about polyorchid in my memory... a similar concept.

"Ever heard of diphallus?

Yes. Probably one of many clinical terms taught to be by my sister.

nickyskye, I had a friend who used to joke that one of his legs was longer than the other two, but that's just ridiculous!

There are people who are born with the standard equipment and, uh, bifurcate themselves as adults.

And then put pictures of that on the internet.

I wish they wouldn't.

redteam writes "Diphallic porn."

I'm pretty sure I don't want to see this, but the name of the file alone makes me laugh...

From sergeant sandwich's link:
"What It Feels Like... To Have Two Vaginas

By Anonymous, 41, record-company executive "

Record company executive? Based on that I'd rather expect that she'd have two anuses...

Do you think he'll cry when he wakes up and finds they've taken the bigger one off?

I also remember the polyorchid question.

Sorry, should have been "and three buttocks."
