OMG: Girls, how could I explain to you that I have penile papules without you thinking I am trying to cover up Herpes? They are non-contagious, not a STD, basically a very small skin-tag.

  1. I just made the mistake of looking up google images of this. I am sure your issue isn't nearly as horrific as what I just saw...but maybe see a doctor. I am sure they can do something.

    Otherwise, simply tell her. "Oh, what is that on your dick?" "Oh those? They are just a skin tag...weird eh? I am trying to find out if I can get it removed."

    Done.

  2. They look very different from herpes. I'm sure most adults with a rudimentary understanding of STIs would know the difference.

    As far as I know, they're completely normal and there's no reason to have them removed as 1 is suggesting.

    1. Exactly this. I probably wouldn't say anything unless I was specifically asked by a partner, at which point I would probably just show them the Wikipedia article ('Hirsuties coronae glandis' - the article is nsfw, heads up)l

    2. "Hirsuties coronae glandis are sometimes described as vestigial remnants of penile spines, sensitive features found in the same location in other primates. In species which retain the full expression of penile spines, the spines contribute to sexual pleasure and quicker orgasms"

      Hey girls, you need to hook up with me more, I'm ribbed for pleasure ;)

  3. I agree with the suggestions. It doesn't look like an STD and google should help clear things up. As a girl I'd be very understanding if my guy has it as I have skin conditions of my own.

  4. I get cysts in that area. Imagine how much fun I have explaining those.

  5. Assuming they're small enough, women won't notice. I think I have them as well, but they're small enough that I don't think anyone has ever commented/are covered up by foreskin anyways.

  6. They don't look the same as herpes.

    Besides, if you're wearing a condom it shouldn't matter.

    1. You're aware that condoms don't fully protect against herpes, right?

      Delete
    2. Condoms can also break/slip off if not sized/applied correctly

  7. I have them too. For some reason they are more likely to occur if you were not circumcised. Mine are small and for the most part would go unnoticed, but these people above seem to have the right genital..opps I mean general idea. most....people are reasonable and rational.

  11. OP: Are you uncut? If you're having a hard time finding girls, I'm sure there are some guys out there who can overlook your bumps.

    1. I'm uncut, and I have recently started seeing someone. We are taking it a bit slower so we don't ruin anything by jumping in bed too soon because we want an actual relationship. I'm just worried that they might scare her off or something.

    2. Yeah me too.. anyway, I'm seeing someone too. Lol. An actual relationship? Uve already scared her off.

      Delete
    3. Wow. It seems like everyone at UW is uncut. Girls are going to start thinking cut ones are weird.

  12. If I just met a guy and he was explaining bumps away, I'd be ready to bail. If it was coming from someone I trusted (my boyfriend has a couple tiny ones), not a problem. If it was me, I'd just say what was up ahead of time and offer to get tested to put them at ease.
