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?

Hey man!: All guys have these. Some guys' are bigger than others. Some lucky guys even have a row of bumps along the corona ("pearly papules") -- they're a "plus" unless that special lady really doesn't like them. What have the women said?
