Sir, I have indulged in masturbation since I was 14 now I have a bent penis that leans towards the left. I am still a virgin. I want to know whether there will be a problem for me during intercourse or not. Also I want to know if there is any cure/operation for this problem, please advise. Thank you.

Probably the majority of penises bend - up, down, to the right or to the left. This curvature is natural and happens with or without a history of masturbation. In other words, your masturbation had nothing at all to do with the shape of your erection or the direction it heads in. This should not cause any problem at all with intercourse, unless the bend is extreme. The typical curvature of an erect penis is gradual. Some men do, however, have a condition that causes a severe bend, almost at a right angle. This is very unusual, often follows a traumatic injury to the penis, and requires medical attention. My guess, however, is that you are quite normal and should stop worrying about you penis (and don't ever feel guilty about your masturbation).
