Well, at least you could easily keep your muscle tone balanced in *both* arms.

Nothing quite like two-fisting it. Killing 2 kittens with one fap session.

No, this thread doesn't need any visual examples. The thought is disturbing enough, thank you very much.

Might make for an entertaining example for discussing the effects of mutations and sexual selection.

If such a trait is caused by mutation, it may tend to contribute to a lower rate of conception per instance of intercourse, due to more complicated plumbing; but there may be an increase in the number of opportunities for intercourse among the venturesome young ladies of a curiousity-prone species. Depending on the net balance, the mutation may tend to fade out, become prevalent over time, or drift along neutrally. Additional factors in the spread include whether it's a dominant or recessive mutation, what other effects on survival (such as increased tendency to UTIs) may result, and the degree of certainty that a gene leads to such a trait.

Of course, it appears in actuality to simply be an environmental epigenetic or teratogenic "defect", not passed between generations. Might still get the college students in intro bio to stop sleeping through class... though probably with too much giggle factor to be of much use.

Although it's a rare phenomenon, it's estimated that in the United States, one in every five and a half million men have diphallia.

Assuming exactly 50% of the population of the US is male (which is close enough, really), that works out to about 30 people. You could have written "This is a rare phenomenon, with one in every five and a half million men having diphallia." Instead, you open up with the "although it's rare..." as though what you're going to say makes it seem scarier and more widespread than it is. Seriously, no matter how you try to frame it, 1/5,500,000 is rare. So maybe next time don't try to sensationalize something like this.

I was going to ask if it was over-under or side-by-side and if you could fire both "barrels" at the same time. The article answers all those questions and more.

sometimes
usually
urinating yes, but likely to have ED

FTFA:
Although the condition is extremely rare, doctors know exactly why it occurs.

Also FTFA:
If some special stress is put on the developing embryo on those days, the cells can form twice.

Wow. Not only is this an exact explanation of why it happens, it goes further, suggesting that I know exactly everything.

Why did we have the credit crunch - a special stress
Why did that dude shoot up that school - a special stress
Why does FSM allow suffering to persist - a special stress.

THIS.CHANGES.EVERYTHING.

It is an exact explanation for the reason for everything. EXACT, I tell you!!

It's comforting to know that points and giggles when one drops his pants are not limited to my experience alone.

No, that's even. Three would be odd.

According the article it is environmentally triggered, and there is no evidence it runs in families. It's extremely rare occurrence is far too rare for mendelian inheritance, even recessive. While it possible there is some genetic component, the environmental trigger would still be absolutely required.
