Historians have long debated Hitler’s genitalia, but a recent discovery suggests his penis was probably abnormally small.
In their book Hitler’s Last Day: Minute by Minute, historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie, point to medical records they uncovered suggesting Hitler suffered from a hypospadias, The Telegraph reports.
“Hitler himself is believed to have had two forms of genital abnormality: an undescended testicle and a rare condition called penile hypospadias in which the urethra opens on the under side of the penis,” Mayo and Craigie wrote.
The condition would have left Hitler with a tiny penis and possibly urinating from the base of his shaft, instead of the tip. Historians debate if he was sexually active, but there is some evidence to support the theory he took early version of Viagra, that included the semen and prostate glands of young bulls.
Another myth circulating Hitler’s genitalia is the story he only had one testicle, and there is an old song to go with it.
Hitler Has Only Got One Ball,
The bawdy 1939 song in full:
Hitler has only got one ball
The other is in the Albert Hall
His mother, the dirty b*****,
Cut it off when he was small
Hitler has only got one ball,
Göring has two but very small,
Himmler has something sim’lar,
But poor old Goebbels has no balls at all.
There is no evidence to suggest Hitler’s mother actually cut it off, and Hitler’s child hood doctor testified to interrogators that his genitalia was completely normal. One story suggests Hitler lost it during a battle, but another recently discovered doctors report supports the idea Hitler suffered from an undescended testicle, something that can develop after childhood in rare cases. Reports from when Russian forces discovered his body, which his followers attempted to burn, show they found one testicle missing.
This new information about Hitlers missing ball and penis size is believed to help explain why Hitler was allegedly afraid of being seen naked and the cause of his famed fits of rage.
