A malleable penile implant is completely hidden within the body. There are no external parts. This is the good news. They are great for men whose dexterity is not what it was. You simply bend up the penis when you want an erection and bend it down again when you have finished having sex.
The issue for some with this malleable penile implant is that you essentially always have an erection. Your penis will be hard even when you are not having sex. This can take a bit of getting used to. For anyone who has had an erection when you don’t want one, you will know how difficult it can be to hide it, not to mention embarrassing.
Tight trousers, for example, may be off limits because the erection might be visible.
The big issue, of course, is when you first meet your lady. In the bedroom, you could discreetly raise your penis to erection when isn’t looking. This should be carefully planned. Spontaneous sex, on the other hand, could be more tricky. Remember, your penis is bent downwards, not upwards. You are going to have to get that implant up before she feels your erection in the downward position. This might not be a problem in itself, but at some point, the penis is going to have to move position in order that you will be able to penetrate the vagina.
It’s probably fair to say that most men who have penile implants do tell their partner. If you are in a long-term relationship already then the chances are that your partner has been there to support you through the whole process.
If on the other hand, you are single, then you are going to be meeting new sexual partners going forward and maybe you are already thinking about how you should approach the subject. You could just tell your new partners of course. Be upfront and let them know. If you can do this then it might take the stress away from the whole situation. After all, sex is supposed to be enjoyable and if you have gone through the expense and discomfort of having that implant put in, then you want to enjoy the benefits.
If you really can’t bring yourself to tell your partners then you will have to be discreet about how you handle the sexual encounter, full stop.
How natural the penis looks in the erect state when pointing downwards is open to debate.
On the other hand, if you are still deciding which penile implant to have either malleable penile implant or there is always the inflatable penile implant. It’s more expensive but does give the penis the most natural appearance in the flaccid state.
If you are in two minds then arrange an appointment to see a Urologist and get all the facts before you take the plunge. Penile implants are expensive, malleable or inflatable and you want to be sure that you have made the best choice for you.
