This writer's question wasn't about getting his partner pregnant. The only thing you seem to be an expert at Diane, is missing the point completely and spending 4 out of 6 sentences on a subject having nothing to do with what the person was asking. You must be sexist to think answering a question from a guy about his penis must be met with a lecture on pregnancy, abstinence, birth control, and marriage. You've got your head up your own *** so much you don't even know what people are talking to you about. Start LISTENING, and project your own agenda when it isn't at someone else's expense.

Diane W, your answer is pathetic. You're not a medical doctor so you cannot diagnose but you think you can give moral advice that is not even requested? Is marriage a cure for STDs? What a ridiculous comment! What were you doing, watching pics of penises online and you stumbled across this one? Here's a guy who's seeking medical advice not a lecture for pete's sake! Keep your sermon for you congregation, lady.

that wasnt mush of an awnser. he wanted to find out whats wrong with him, not you telling him he shouldnt have sex! also you went off about how there is no 100% garauntee for pregnencies? what was the point in that? that was random and off topic. in the future learn to give more valid awnsers, instead of your opinions.

It a Yeast Infection.  Use some Vagisil in the woman isle at the grocery store.  And make sure to wash your wang after sex to prevent this in the future.  Especially being you are not circumsized.  Your peepee just sat overnight with those juices and grew funk!  Good luck!

Wow. They answer you received was very bias and has nothing to do with your question. I actually have a similar condition, and upon researching, I discovered that this IS NOT a sexually transmitted disease. IT IS, however, a irritation of the skin caused by sexual activity. It is most common in uncircumcised men like ourselves, and is common. The name most commonly connected with this condition is Balanitis. In the most severe cases, it can cause inflammation of the head of the penis, and may prevent retraction of the foreskin. The rash you are experiencing can be cleared up in about 5-7 days by using an OTC anti-fungal cream. If you still are having issues, consult a dermatologist or urologist. Wearing a condom may help from obtaining this rash in the future. Also make sure to clean your penis daily, and thoroughly with a mild soap, and warm water. It may also be beneficial in telling your sexual partner to clean down there as well before sex (although this can come across as offensive, so be careful)

Diane offered a terrible response with no actual information. She sounds like a right winged nutjob pushing her agenda on you.

These bumps may just be from the friction caused during sex while not having enough lubricant. It should go away on its own.
