Diphallus is a rare condition in which a man’s penis is duplicated.

You read that right…Diphallus condition can be defined as a congenital anomaly in which one’s penis is partially or completely doubled. It is caused by fetal mesodermal bands in the embryo which fail to fuse properly. Diphallus disorder is usually accompanied by other congenital abnormalities, such as

anorectal, renal, vertebral duplication.

The first known case of this condition was reported in 1609. Typically only one of the organs is fully formed, but there have been occurrences in which both penises are fully functional! This strange disorder affects an estimated 1 in 5.5 million men.

It’s very uncommon for both penises in diphallus to be fully functional. Usually one of them only has rudimentary functionality. While it might sound awesome, most people would rather not have it. In 2006, for instance, an Indian man in Uttar Pradesh had his second penis surgically removed.
