Is penis curvature normal?

It's extremely common for a penis to be something other than straight. The average penis may point slightly to the left or right. During an erection, a man's penis may point straight up or tilt downward, either because of individual differences or age. A crooked or bent penis isn't usually cause for concern, unless a man notices a sudden change in the shape of the penis, experiences pain during or after an erection, or isn't able to have intercourse at all.
