So, apparently, having two genitals is the in-thing nowadays as a guy with two penises and a woman with two vaginas are both making headlines around the world.
Yes, one chap has two fully formed and functional penises and goes by the name ‘Diphallic Dude’ (or ‘Double Dick Dude’). His identity is secret but he has revealed he is an American man in his mid-twenties.
He did an AMA on Reddit last year, which turned out to be one of the most popular ever, and even released a book on Christmas Day called ‘Double Header: My Life With Two Penises’.
In an interview with BBC Newsbeat, he explained that his parents told him he was “special and unique”, and said:
Initially I didn’t want people in school to know because I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
I didn’t want others guys to be jealous or feel bad that they didn’t have two. It was never put into my head they might hate me because I had two or they might think I was weird.
It didn’t get out until a girl I’d been seeing had been interested in going all the way. I hadn’t thought about it and I was trying to avoid it. It wasn’t until then that I thought she might not be able to handle this – it might freak her.
The man claims to have had over 1,000 sexual partners and says he has considered entering the porn industry.
I wanted to do whatever I wanted to do with whoever I wanted to do it with – whoever would do it with me.
It was owning it, it was being me and accepting it and putting them to use. There were situations where people would freak out.
I can urinate and ejaculate through both at the same time. Entering into the porn industry has crossed my mind. I knew people who worked in the sex industry and some of them knew what I had, some had heard what I had.
Nobody had seen it. I remember thinking about it but I don’t want to become a novelty. My dignity is priceless.

Not to be outdone, earlier this week, Youtube star and model Cassandra Bankson revealed that she has two vaginas.
When visiting the doctor because of kidney pain, the 22-year-old found out she has a rare condition called ‘uterus didelphys’, which means she has two vaginas and two wombs.
In an interview with Barcroft media, Bankson said:
When she (the doctor) got the papers back she was looked at me and she said ‘ah-ha’. I was like ‘what, do I have one kidney, do I have two? She was like ‘yes, and you have two vaginas, as I suspected.’
It’s probably like a nose, if you could imagine it upside down. Everything looks the same so I never really noticed a difference but on the inside most vaginas have this opening and then everything is one large cavity. For me there’s almost this split right down the middle, just like a septum in a nose.
I wonder what would happen if these two ever met…
