In brief: 8-40 % have them

Pearly penile papules are a common skin variation and are estimated to be present in roughly a quarter of adult males.
They are not caused by sexual activity or lack of hygiene and they are not infectious or contagious, unlike genital warts. They are not malignant or pre-malignant.
