Really? Stretch marks can appear on the member? Yep, it’s not just for pregnant ladies; men are just as likely to see those tiny trails on their favorite appendage to. But how do they get there and should a man be worried about seeing them? Thankfully, stretch marks are a very normal part of life, most people have them somewhere, and there is nothing medically worrisome about them. Let’s talk about where stretch marks come from, how to reduce their appearance, and how to keep them away as much as possible.
What Do Stretch Marks on the Male Organ Look Like?
Member stretch marks look like long, thin silvery trails that run along the member and in the reproductive area. They are rarely straight lines and have a slight raised texture when touched.
Stretch Marks on the Male Organ: Where They Come From
Stretch marks develop when the skin stretches past its normal elasticity. This happens in common situations like pregnancy, muscle building, and weight gain or loss. Stretch marks can happen to anyone, at any age, and at any time. They are an equal opportunity body modification.
So, since men can’t get pregnant and it’s unlikely he is squeezing out reps with his joint, how do member stretch marks happen? Well, it’s as easy as popping a boner. When a man gets hard, the male organ skin stretches to accommodate a newly throbbing member. That stretch can leave these tiny tears in the dermis. As more hard-ons pop up and go down, those tiny tears transform into the wispy male organ memories of good times had.
As less fun way to get stretch marks on the male organ is if a man produces more of the stress hormone, cortisol, than he needs. Using certain medications like steroids and Prednisone to treat the issue can lead to stretch marks.
Stretch Marks on the Male Organ: Treatment Options
Most men aren’t bothered by stretch marks on the male organ (if they even notice them). In fact, now you can wear them as a badge of honor for all the time your soldier came to battle and won. Most partners won’t notice either unless they are urologist or really spend a lot of time down there in very bright light.
All of that considered, member stretch marks can make some men self-conscious or unhappy with the aesthetic. It may even lead to performance anxiety or less confidence in the boudoir. Those men can see a dermatologist for microdermabrasion or fancy fractal CO2 laser therapy. These procedures can smooth out stretch mark or exfoliate off the top layer of skin to make them less noticeable (Note: DO NOT exfoliate your member at home or ever; leave that to the professionals!). Sadly science has not yet figured a way to totally get rid of stretch marks, but again, they aren’t medically dangerous.
Stretch Marks on the Male Organ: Preventing Silvery Streaks on Your Johnson
The best way to prevent those little “memory lanes” to trail down your member is by moisturizing daily or twice daily. Choose a male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) that is specially formulated for use on a man’s member. Crèmes such as these not only hydrate the skin but contain vitamins like B and C to promote collagen production, keep skin elastic, and encourage healthy cell turnover to keep the skin bouncy and supple. A good crème should include Shea butter and vitamin E to not only deliver softness and ample moisture, but also lock that hydration in so the member stays soft, supple, and elastic.
