The Internet Is a Race and You Won!

Posted by on Fri, Jan 3, 2014 at 10:00 AM

I was in the woods for the last few days... so I just got around to reading the Reddit AMA that devoured the Internet earlier this week. You probably already read it because you are amazing. But for other folks who may have missed it: DoubleDickDude has two fully functioning penises, the pics to prove it, a boyfriend and a girlfriend, a sense of humor about his superpowers, and... almost more amazing than his two dicks... he has a mom who refrained from having him "surgically corrected" as an infant, the fate of most babies born with ambiguous and/or complex genitalia. Enjoy.

If you don't have time to read the entire AMA, Deadspin has a great greatest hits.

Wasn't it great! Thanks for encouraging more people to read it. The AMA form has developed so beautifully. Have you done one yet?

Yes, I've already read it, but it's still good that you posted this. It was a real hoot.

And I agree with Tom that you should do one.

As one reddit commenter noted:
"Dominant cock" is not a phrase I've ever considered before.

I want to get a T shirt - or perhaps underwear - that has "Prepare yourself, mortal" emblazoned on it.

Why did he say it's not genetic? I thought genes are what give some blue eyes, some freckles, and some two penises.

And now for something completely different: "A man with three buttocks!"

I thought it was a joke and skipped it. Now I'm gobsmacked!

@7, my guess would be that he absorbed an identical twin as he was in uterus, and the penis is all that's left. That wouldn't be genetic.

@7 I have no actual idea if this is accurate in this case or not, but I assumed it would be not genetic because it's like a birth defect -- when some fetuses are developing in the womb, there's a mutation and it leads to a missing arm or an extra toe. It's not necessarily genetic, in that there's no "gene" for missing an arm. Like identical twins, it's just a random fluctuation (Okay, crazy thought -- what if this dude had a vanishing twin in the womb and he absorbed everything but his twin's penis...).

"... I did NOT absorb a twin. It's not genetic or inherited...."

If it was genetic, there'd be some mutation that causes it. Just as likely, something just went wrong during development for no particular reason, by pure chance.

PP @9, me too! When I first heard about this, I just assumed: FAKE!, and didn't even bother to click. I'm stunned.

Still, good on his parents for not lopping off the extra wang when he was born, I guess.

Well, lots of people get extra fingers and toes....

The moral of the story is that doctors should NOT be allowed to perform cosmetic surgery on children's genitals for any reason. I can't believe it's not yet banned. If a parent wanted their baby to have a nosejob it would be a scandal, but cosmetic surgery on baby genitals is an everyday occurrence.

Please ban ASAP.

@15: Does that mean that circumcision is off the menu?

16- Yes, absolutely.

Baby circumcision. Of course adults can do whatever they want with their bodies.

Thanks for this, Dan. I was wallowing in gloom because my genetic inheritance is screwing up my sex life, but when I read this it really cheered me up that some people are doing so well out of nature's lottery.

For once I agree with raku. Cosmetic or religious surgeons have no place near babies' genitals.

If circumcision is so important for a religion, why prevent the faithful from voluntarily doing it in adulthood ?

I have an extra spleen...
