Have you ever wondered…

“Does anyone really care if I have pearly penile papules?”
“Do people find them weird or disgusting?”
“Does having them affect your sex life?”
“What do women/men think of PPP when they first see them?”
“Should I get rid of them or just learn to accept them?”
“Shouldn’t reassuring my partner ease their concerns?”

Until now, the most common medical advice given to anyone asking these questions would have been to “simply accept your papules” and to “reassure your partner that they are harmless.”

We now know for a fact that this is really bad advice
because it sets you up for disappointment, misjudgment, prejudice and ridicule.


Research has confirmed that having pearly penile papules can have a huge negative impact on your life and simply accepting them or reassuring someone rarely makes things better.


Here are the results of one of the biggest PPP surveys ever conducted and you can clearly see what women/men really think of pearly penile papules…

The Global Pearly Penile Papule Awareness Survey

*This survey was conducted on over 20,000 people. You can even take the survey here yourself.

There were three major goals of this massive survey:

  • To find out how aware the general public is about pearly penile papules
  • To reveal if the average person has any negative bias against them
  • To see if reassuring someone really helps them accept your papules

Most of all, the study wanted to answer the question once and for all...

Are the doctors right?

Should you just learn to ignore your papules and simply reassure your partner that they are harmless?

OR

Are the PPP sufferers right?

People really do find them repulsive and getting rid of them can significantly improve your life.

Here’s what the study found…

A

When asked: Do you know what pearly penile papules are?

91%

Responded NO

9%

Responded Yes

What this means: Most people are ignorant about pearly penile papules.

B

When asked: What do you think causes them?

76%

thought they were related to an STD

12%

thought they were related to poor hygiene

7%

thought they were related to an acute (non sexual) skin condition (such as acne)

5%

thought they were a natural variation of penile skin (which they actually are)

What this means: Most people mistake them for an STD or poor hygiene.

C

When asked: How would you rate the appearance of pearly penile papules?

81%

found them highly unattractive

10%

found them unattractive

7%

were neutral about them

2%

found them attractive

0%

found them highly attractive

What this means: Most people are turned off by them.

D

When asked: How likely would you be to initiate sexual contact with a PPP sufferer?

81%

said they would be highly reluctant

8%

said they would be somewhat reluctant

6%

said they would be neutral

5%

said they would be somewhat open

0%

said they would be very willing

What this means: Most people are reluctant to get intimate with a PPP sufferer.

Now here’s where it gets interesting…

Did you note that many people mistakenly thought pearly penile papules were related to a disease? The survey decided to put commonly given medical advice to test…

The researchers took these misinformed subjects that had very negative views about PPP and educated them (as doctors suggest) by showing them slides like this:

sample slide

sample slide

Did you know?

  • Pearly penile papules are very common and are a natural part of penile skin
  • They are not related to any disease or poor hygiene
  • They do not interfere with normal intercourse and should not be a cause of any health concerns
And then the misinformed group was asked once again: (keep in mind these are all people that first said they would be very reluctant to have sex with a PPP sufferer)

How likely would you be to initiate sexual contact with a PPP sufferer knowing that it is a natural part of the penile anatomy and is harmless?

75%

said they would be highly reluctant

5%

said they would be somewhat reluctant

12%

said they would be neutral

8%

said they would be somewhat open

0%

said they would be very willing

What this means:Reassurance doesn't work.Most people make up their minds and stick to their initial instincts no matter how wrong they are. It’s truly surprising that even in these hypothetical scenarios, the survey subjects just couldn’t see themselves getting over their original impulses to judge the sufferer and reject them as a potential partner.

Here’s another interesting fact that the researchers stumbled upon during their study…

About 410 of the subjects that took part in the survey were in active relationships with someone that had pearly penile papules. In other words, these were people that didn't reject pearly penile papule sufferers as potential mates.

When asked: Which variation of penile skin do you find more attractive?

70%

said they found a papule-free penis more attractive

20%

said they found both equally attractive

10%

said they found a penis with papules more attractive

What this means: During anonymous surveys, even partners of PPP sufferers respond that they find a papule-free penis more attractive than one with papules.

What does all this mean?

This remarkable survey revealed 5 surprising facts about PPP:

  • Most people have no idea what they are
  • Most people immediately have negative views of pearly penile papules when they see them
  • Simply accepting your papules doesn’t protect you from being judged by others
  • Trying to reassure someone that they are harmless almost never works
  • Even if your partner accepts them, they may still find a non-papular penis more attractive
The PPP sufferers were right all along.

Having pearly penile papules does put you at a huge disadvantage in sexual and social settings and it is far better to treat your papules than to ignore them.
