Diphallus is a rare condition in which a man's penis is duplicated.

The first known case of this condition was reported in 1609. Typically only one of the organs is fully formed, but there have been occurrences in which both penises are fully functional! This strange disorder affects an estimated 1 in 5.5 million men.

It's very uncommon for both penises in diphallus to be fully functional. Usually one of them only has rudimentary functionality.
