Hi, I'm 16 and I'm worried about my penis, it has a light curve towards the left, i'd say about 15 degree angle from straight when it is erect.. is this bad and even if it isn't, how can I get it to go straight? p.s. it isn't curved when it isn't erect.

My ex-boyfriend had a curved penis and it gave me multiple g-spot orgasms every time. It was amazing. I wish all men had curved penises!
