Don’t think I’m going to use this as an excuse make a lot of dick jokes (just a few) but believe it or not, about 100 men a month are getting their penis whitened at Lelux Hospital in Bangkok. It’s apparently very popular with gay men.
The majority of patients are LGBT people between the ages of 22 and 55 and according to Bunthita Wattanasiri, the manager of the Skin and Laser Department at Lelux,
“These days a lot of people are asking about it. We get around 100 clients a month, three to four clients a day. We have to be careful because it’s a sensitive part of the body.”
(Hey, if you’re a penis owner, like myself, you might already know this.)
Doctors use “a very small laser” to do the whitening (insert dick size joke here) and it costs $650 for five sessions. But there ARE potential negative side effects of getting your penis whitened. They are…
• pain & inflammation
• possible difficulty with reproducing
OK, so tell me…
Why isn’t Barbie pregnant?
Because Ken came in another box.
Lelux Hospital’s marketing manager, Popol Tansakul, said patients started to ask about penis whitening after the hospital introduced vagina whitening a few months ago.
“A man walked into the doctor’s. He said, ‘I’ve hurt my arm in several places.’ The doctor said, ‘Well, don’t go there any more.‘”
Thailand’s Public Health Minister, Dr. Thongchai Keeratihuttayakorn has spoken out against the procedure saying,
“Penis laser whitening is not necessary, wastes money and may give more negative effects than positive ones.”
But hey, if you’re a big fan of White Snake, this just might be your thing. No? Let me try again…
What do you call a cheap circumcision?
A rip off.
OK, just one more that I ripped off…
