Just in case you still had some faith left in the human race, here is some breaking news — penis whitening is a thing. You read that correctly, penis whitening is a thing that many men are doing in several Asian countries in order to get their junk look more…white? I guess?
A Bangkok clinic that specializes in the procedure has seen over 100 men a month come in to get their penises brightened. The Lelux Hospital has been performing skin bleaching operations for a while now and they’ve seen an uptick in the new penis whitening fad. It all started around six months ago when a man came in complaining about his junk being too dark. Since then, the strange fad has taken off.
Bunthita Wattanasiri, a manager for the Skin and Laser department at Lelax Hospital said, “These days a lot of people are asking about it. We get around 100 clients a month, three to four clients a day.”
Some people are very concerned about the health risks associated with the whitening procedure. Even Bunthita expressed her concerns, but assures her clients that everything is completely safe, and the utmost care is being taken. “We have to be careful because it’s a sensitive part of the body,” she said.
Understandably, people on social media are having a field day with this news. Some people are cracking jokes, while others are finding the news to be horribly depressing coming from a country that seems to be obsessed with lighter-skin tones and will stop at nothing to make their skin more white.
Other people just find the mere fact that anyone would do this to their private parts to be utterly insane.
The whitening costs around $650 for five sessions in case you wanted to hop on a plane to Thailand and make your penis whiter. Seems like a silly proposition, but if it’ll make you happy, who is to stop you?
