I have a question for anyone who knows. my penis is two-tone. The half closest to my body is dark, then there is a distinct line of separation to the light colored second half. Is this really weird or is this kind of normal?
it's normal, are you cut?

It's common for the inside of the foreskin to be a different colour than the outside, which produces a two-tone effect when erect. Is this what you have?
Completely normal. The base of your shaft skin (closest to your body) is similar to the rest of your body skin, and is usually about the same color. Moving towards the tip, your inner foreskin is a different type of skin that has mucosal glands, and is also thinner and more sensitive. Since its a different kind of skin, its a different color - usually more pinkish or reddish, and has a different texture. If you're circumcised, your inner foreskin is the different colored skin just below the head, and above your circumcision scar (looks like a darker colored thin line going around your penis). If you're uncut or not circumcised, you can see your inner foreskin when you retract your foreskin.
The head or glans of the penis has another set of different skin cells, and thus is of another different color and texture. Its ususally darker, and when erect can look deep red, almost purple.
So if you're circumcised, you actually have 4 different types of skin and skin colors on your penis:
- Shaft skin; similar to body skin
- Circumcision scar; thin brown or darker line about half way up or more up the shaft
- Inner foreskin; pinkish or bright red, above the circ scar, but below the head
- Glans or head; dark red or purplish colored when erect
If you're uncut, you have three colors to your penis:
- Shaft skin and outer foreskin; same color as your body skin
- Inner foreskin; pinkish or bright red, visible only when you pull your foreskin all the way back
- Glans or head; dark red or almost puple when erect, visible only when you pull your foreskin all the way back.
Hope this helps. :smile:

The glans of my uncut penis used to be light pink or light red, but now it's almost purple
I like purple!!
