In brief: Penile papules
Pearly penile papules are more popular in uncircumcised men, ages 13-30, and often go away with age.
These bumps cannot be spread by sexual contact, and are completely normal. It is estimated that about 25% of all men develop a case of pearly penile papules sometime during their lifetime. It is commonly said, but not medically proven, that masturbation, sex, or any friction or irritation can cause.
