Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

For starters, it causes no pain or discomfort, it's more of a cosmetic issue (I hope, anyways)

Wondering if anyone can tell me what this is....on the underside of my penis, there is a fairly narrow line of darker skin that runs along the raphe (I beleive it's called) and widens out a bit just before it fades into the scrotum. It almost looks like the darker skin on my scrotum has continued up along that line.

I'm in my late 20's now and I think I was around 13-14 when I really noticed this. Like I mentioned earlier, it was never a source of pain so I never went to a doctor about it, I even forget it's there sometimes. Now and then though I think about it and wonder. I guess I just assumed it was natural, but I've never heard of this before in others.

thanks for any help/info..

Sounds like it's quite common.
I've never looked for mine.

By the way, what is a "raphe"? Is this term in common use?

Never mind. I found this definition on wikipedia.org: "Raphe: I ridge of skin.
The perineal raphe extends from the anus, through the mid-line of the scrotum (scrotal raphe) and upwards through the posterior mid-line aspect of the penis (penile raphe). "

Every male has it. It is there because of embryological reasons. Basically before our penises and scrotums were formed when we were in our mothers' wombs, there was a slit right in the middle... for girls, the slit remains there and for guys, it joined and formed this line.

Just to put peoples fear at rest but all men have a raphe. It varies in how noticeable it is. The reason you don't see it in porn is due to make-up, lighting and camera angles. There really is nothing to worry about.

it freaks me out as well and i would like to know more about it since it wasn't there last year and the color distortion looks bad, almost like my penis's been in the dirt. from what ive read so far its just cosmetic and isnt an std or anything like that but i still am not sure because i havent seen a doctor

I was curious about this because my boyfriend has it, but it didn't freak me out. No worries guys, we're not looking that closely, and if we are we probably love you anyway.
