Question Strange problem with penis rigidity

I'm 21 and this is a problem I've had for as long as I can remember:

When I get an erection, my penis stands straight up and will not point in any other direction - i.e. its really rigid and inflexible. This can make sex awkward and limits the number of positions I can use.

> Erect penis will only move maybe 45 degrees away from my abdomen
> Explanation might be to do with one of the muscles near the base of my penis, as if I relax and breath deeply for a while, it is possible to lower it, but when I stop, it returns to an upright position.
> This is not to do with penile bending - it's almost straight. The problem seems to be with something near the base.

Weird problem I know and I've had no luck finding out what could be causing this, so this is a shot in the dark really.

Re: Strange problem with penis rigidity

it's a tight tendon, genetically inherited. mine is pretty much that way as well. it's not a sign of damage or anything.

That's a relief - but how do you deal with it? It can be frustrating during sex

Re: Strange problem with penis rigidity

I was wondering if you have tried pushing your erect penis down toward the horizontal position to try to stretch the ligament at the base of the penis. It seems that if you did this several times a day it might eventually allow the penis to move more. At any rate as you age the angle of erection will go more toward the horizontal. Good luck with possible stretching.
