U don't want 2: This is normal skin and anatomy. Leave it alone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Why would you want to? You will injury yourself if you do this or persist in attempting to do this. Talk with your pcp or with a urologist or dermatologist and see if there is something going on elsewise. Man, enjoy what you have for the reason you have it and leave the rest alone. It is what it is!
