Seven Types of Penis Shapes  

1. The Pencil: Darren revealed pencil penis as having long and thin uniform girth with a narrow gland. He added: “The length can range enormously but it is very long and usually thinner than the average.”

2. The Pepper: It is unusually short (3 to 4 inches) but exceptionally thick along the entire length.

3. The Cone: This shape gets narrower towards the tip of the penis. Sometimes this is linked to phimosis or tightening of the foreskin that is so restrictive it cannot be retracted at all. This could be problematic, and you should visit your GP.

4. The Banana: If your penis tilts towards left or right then you have the Banana. It can either be natural or caused by an injury. He told Daily Mail: “This can be a congenital curve - so they are born with it or it is acquired and called peyronie’s disease. It is when a scar tissue causes the penis to bend and can lead to erectile dysfunction or pain during sex.

5. The Hammer: Looking like a mushroom, it has a narrow base and a wide head. Gravity makes it more difficult for this type of erect penis to lift skyward on erection.

6. The Sausage: This is most common penis shape. It is of average thickness and length with a uniform girth along the length.

7. The Cucumber: This shape is thick all the way long. It is thicker than the usual penis and usually falls in the 5 to 8-inch bracket.
