Kenya: Three Weird Ways Men Are Decorating Their Penis

So women are "vajazzling," blinging-out their vaginas for their own pleasures as we have discovered. Well, men are also keeping things interesting down there.

Here are 3 popular trends men are exploring these days...would you do it? Would you want your boyfriend to do it?

Scrotum bleaching

Just like how the women are turning to bleaching creams to keep their intimate areas looking young, pink and fresh; men are also doing the same thing.

Men are using lightening creams on their scrotum and even penis. Lightening your intimate areas stops any embarrassing feelings toward any discoloration one may have.

Some products, like Pink Privates, promises results in 8 weeks!


Yes, men also engage in piercing their sexual members. Apparently, the power of steel rubbing against a woman or man, is very exciting. If you're worried about not being able to use condoms, since the piercings are done with polished jewellery, with no sharp edges, there is minimal chance that the latex will tear. According to AskMen, there are quite a few piecing varieties available for men:

Ampallang: Consists of a Titanium barbell stud (size varies depending on preference) placed horizontally through the glans (head of your penis). Results in the head remaining extremely firm during sex, and because the barbells hit the vaginal walls during sex, it enhances her pleasure. Unfortunately, it takes approximately 12 months to heal completely.

Dydoe: Usually done in pairs, it consists of Titanium barbell studs being pierced through the Corona (ridge of the penis head). Believed to enhance sexual pleasure for both you and your partner. Takes approximately 2 months to heal.

Frenum: Piercing occurs along the length of the penis rather than side to side. The loose skin is pierced, thus not causing intense pain as with the other two. Takes approximately 2 months to heal.

Prince Albert: Most popular piercing out there to date. Consists of a bead ring (circular barbell) being pierced into the urethra. Takes about 2 months to heal.

Guiche: Consists of having the base of the scrotum pierced through the perineum with a circular barbell. Prone to infection because most men tend to sweat in this particular area, which aggravates infection. Healing time depends on the individual.


Some men have their partner's names or initials tattooed on their penis to show a sense of visible form of ownership.

Perhaps you remember the story of a 21-year-old Iranian man that has a permanent erection after tattooing his girlfriend's initial on his penis? The man has now been diagnosed with nonischemic priapism - the inability of blood to exit the penis.

If you're about to tattoo your penis, perhaps it would be important to consult a tattoo artist who's well-versed in the male anatomy...just in case.
