Question

Good day. What an excellent web site. It is very good. Wish I had had it when I was younger. My life would have been way easier. Dad told me nothing. I thought masturbation was sin or even having an erection in front of friends was sinful. I thought it meant I was gay. I recently found out I have mild hypospadias. Yes, it influenced my life. But I believe in Christ and now am set free. Thank you for your great web site. Sometimes advice does help.


Answer

Hypospadias is when the opening for the penis is not at the tip of the penis, but further down. It occurs in about 1 in 4,000 boys. In over half of these cases the opening is still in the glans, but angled slightly down from the tip. Such is considered mild and requires no intervention. More severe forms appear on the under side of the penis and requires surgery to relocate the opening.

The important point is not that you were mislead when you were younger, but that you now know what God has actually said about these matters.
