Penis point up, almost vertically when erect

My penis is curved so much up.

When I get a really hard erection, the whole dic sort of POINT UP to the SKY, close to vertically, like lying against my stomach.
But if I want to masturbate I can push it around 80 degrees down, so becomes only slightly pointing up. But once I let go, it sort of bouncesgoes back to vertically.

I have heard of penis pointing down, but never heard of a situation like mine that points so much up? Would this affect my sex life? Would I have difficulties to have sex?

What causes my penis to point up, close to vertically?

Re: Penis point up, almost vertically when erect

A ligament holds your penis at that angle. That is perfectly normal. While there are other normal variations, the angle you describe is what the majority of men have.

Re: Penis point up, almost vertically when erect

From your description, you sound pretty normal for a teen. Generally, the more excited you are, the higher it will point. Of course, as you age, the angle will decrease.

I really wouldn't worry too much. Are you circumsized? This happened to my ex-husband. He wasn't like that until he was circumsized. He was an adult when he had the surgery.
Some say this is determined by the way doctor cuts and lays the penis down for healing.
This never caused a problem for him sexually. We have two beautiful children from the marriage.

Yeah, that is normal. Mine was like that until I was about 23 or 24. Now I am 29 and it sticks out more--not as vertical.

Re: Penis point up, almost vertically when erect

Like the others have said, all is well. My BF is 26, when he is erect I have to practically pry his penis from his bellybutton to have sex. Don't worry, when you have sex it won't be a problem.

Re: Penis point up, almost vertically when erect

My penis goes straight up when erect - im 22.
It DOES interfere slightly with my sex life. It makes some positions absolutely impossible, and there is no flexibility. Its kind of missionary or nothing.
I've always had this problem as long as I've been having erections and it shows no signs of abating.
But hopefully as some of the other posters have attested to, it settles with age.
