A banana penis is a simple curved penis.
It’s not a slight bend. It’s not a severe bend like Peyronies disease can often cause.
But, it may be driving you crazy. And, if it is, it’s very easy to straighten out. Without surgery injections or drugs.
A banana penis is a middle of the road bend. By that I mean it’s not so slight that it’s not really noticed. And, it’s not so bad that it interferes with sexual intercourse.
But, with a banana penis, the shaft is bent enough that any time you get an erection it will be noticed. And, this bothers some men a lot.
Most commonly the bend is upward. But, it can be bending down or to either side also.
The most important thing to remember is this: If your banana penis is not causing any problems with sexual intercourse, you really don’t need to do anything about it.
If it bothers you a lot, you can fix it. Easily and Safely.
That’s a good question.
If a banana penis is making you really upset, then safe straightening is very easy to do. And, it won’t take very long.
The Safest and Most Effective method is called penis traction therapy.
If you are just noticing this, or, it has only been around for a few months, you may be developing Peyronies disease.
Peyronies is NOT really a “disease”.
It’s just some scar tissue hardening inside your shaft (that you may not know you have). It’s causing your erections to bend.
The condition got the name “disease” way back in 1743 when it was named after the man who discovered what was causing this type of bending. His name was Francios Gigot De La Peyronie.
Keep an eye on the bending. If you see your banana penis getting more severe as time goes on, it probably is Peyronies.
The earlier you start with penis traction therapy (PTT), the easier it will be to correct developing Peyronies disease.
Penis traction therapy is medically recommended and FDA approved. It is also the Safest and Least Expensive of all the medically recommended treatments. It's so simple to use, it can feel like magic!
PTT is totally non-invasive. It comes with NONE of the possible surgical or injectable side effects. Side effects that include impotence and inability to orgasm.
PTT is done with a very simple easy to use device.
What this device does is pull your flaccid (soft) shaft in a straight line. Gently, but, firmly. And, unlike jelqing or penis “exercises” it will never pull too hard.
The straight even pull stretches the shorter less stretchable parts of your erection before it stretches the normal parts.
This causes the shorter parts to stretch out and actually grow some new tissue also.
The banana penis shape becomes less and less. It normally straightens decently after 3 - 4 months. The time it takes depends on how severe the bend is and how much discipline you have to wear the device daily.
The best part of penis traction therapy is that you don’t suffer any of the possible horrible side effects that can come with a surgery.
The second best part is, you can get one of the highest quality traction devices in the world for under $300. And, it’s guaranteed to work.*
* Not all traction devices give this guarantee. The ones we found and reviewed as best do. Please see our “Penis Traction” section in the navigation bar at the top of this page.
Compare that to a $9,000 surgery or injections that cost between $3,000 and $30,000.
PTT is extremely simple and easy.
You wear a high quality penis traction device daily for about 4 - 6 hours.
I know. That sounds like a lot. But, it’s super easy because you don’t devote that much time to using it and doing nothing else.
You wear the device under your clothes while you go to work and do your normal daily activities. Once you put it on, you can pretty much forget about it. It does it’s job all by itself.
See how inconspicuous it is?
It takes under a minute to attach and less that 15 seconds to take off.
If you have a congenital bend, or bend causes by an autoimmune disease or a medication, injections will do no good. They are designed to dissolve plaque and calcium deposits in a Peyronies lesion (hard scar tissue). Your only options in these cases is surgery and PTT.
Now, you may be one of the rare cases that requires a surgery.
However, 99.99% of men can straighten a bent penis without a surgery.
So, my one question to you is this: Doesn’t is make sense to try penis traction therapy first?
Take a look at what the doctors are saying about the wonderful new method of penis straightening:
“More and more,
the medical community is turning to correct penis traction
as the first line of treatment

A banana penis is usually more of a personal embarrassment than a sexual intercourse problem.
If a banana penis is making you very unhappy, however, it’s very easy to straighten with simple correct penis traction therapy.
