Man claims COVID-19 made his penis shrink

An unidentified man in his 30s who was hospitalized after contracting COVID-19 last July now claims that the illness left him with penile shrinkage and erectile dysfunction.

“How to do it,” the man wrote in a letter to Slate’s podcast.

“Before I got sick, I was above average, not bulky, but definitely larger than usual. Now I’ve lost about an inch and a half and am decidedly below average.”

Dr. Ashley Winter, an Oregon-based urologist, assured podcast hosts that “COVID d— is a real thing.”
