See a doctor: There really isn't anything that you can "bend" in your penis. You can have fractures of the soft tissues of the erectile portion of the penis (corpus cavernous), but this would cause severe pain requiring immediate evaluation. If you're concerned about possibly damaging your penis, you need to be evaluated by a physician.

? Penile fracture: Most likely explanation if this happened during rough sex, or with partner on top. Would likely have been very painful. Mechanism is a tear in the wall of one of penile rods (corpora cavernosa) with blood escaping. This results in a hematoma causing penis to bend. Unfortunately edges of rod wall remain apart with healing & penis remains bent. Suggest u see an experienced reconstructive urologist.
