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...
 
The plural of penis is freakboy.

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.

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:

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??
