Many people are ignorant of the important fact that the plural of penis is penes. This situation must be rectified, and fortunately, I just found the following pdf-file presenting a penetrating analysis of this problem, examining it in its full length and girth.

Sorry, but :rofl:
Many people who deal with penises professionally use the Latin-style
plural penes instead.
So that's why you're all worked up about this...

I'd rather say his penile plurality would make him into a grand attraction, but have it your way, then.

I tend to work with just one at a time, so don't need to be too concerned about the plural. Though, penises works just fine.

Definitely, we need to straighten out stuff. Selflessly, I'm working towards that end every day.

No, no, no, you just wouldn't be nearly as much fun if we turned you straight! :uhh: Wait a minute...it might have some benefits. :biggrin:

Using a penis isn't boring. Reading an essay about the grammatical properties of the word "penis," on the other hand . . .

Well, I didn't know before today about the different declinations in Latin, so I found the essay worthwhile.

Okay, well, I suppose noun declension can be pretty fascinating. German has them; I take it Norwegian does not? My first exposure to them personally was through Greek.

I had made up penii, but after reading arildno's link I am convinced that the correct plural form is penes. Sort of like "hypothesis : hypotheses." I stand corrected.

Right. If it were "penii" then it would be spelled singularly as "penus" or "penius." :uhh:

Colloquially I've also heard it plurally as a "sausage fest."

Anyone else posting here feel kind of awkward? :rolleyes:

A man can't have two. The plural form does not exist.

Oh wait a minute, that's "Parent" magazine, but I'm sure it would still support this.

This is some very faulty logic.

You mean that a sentence like "I played with fourscore penes last night" is without meaning??
