What is the Curve? The Emotional Impact of Peyronie’s Disease

Shame, Embarrassment, and Low Self-Esteem

As we mentioned earlier, some men with Peyronie’s disease feel that their manhood or virility has been lost or damaged. They may feel like less of a person and ashamed if they can’t perform the way they used to. They may also feel embarrassed by the appearance of their bent penis, especially if they are starting a new relationship and worry that their partner will be turned off.

Gay men may be especially vulnerable, as they might feel even more self-conscious about a curved penis when a partner has no problems with Peyronie’s disease.
