As many have assumed throughout history, German Holocaust perpetrator Adolf Hitler was blowing up Europe, perhaps, because he needed to compensate for something. According to the Telegraph, the leader of the Third Reich who brutally murdered 6 million Jews had a micropenis and only one ball.
It was reported a few months ago by German professor Peter Fleischmann of Erlangen-Nuremberg University that Hitler had only one testicle, but Hitler’s micro-penis is the latest after years of speculation. Hitler suffered from hypospadias according to historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie. The condition gave him very small genitals.
Their book Hitler’s Last Day: Minute by Minute walks through the medical obstacle explaining, “Hitler himself is believed to have had two forms of genital abnormality: an undescended testicle and a rare condition called penile Hypospadius in which the urethra opens on the underside of the penis.”
Hitler’s doctor Theodor Morell left detailed secret diaries that likely aided Mayo and Craigie in their understanding of Hitler’s conditions. According to Morell’s notes, he would sometimes prescribe anything from cocaine to amphetamines with hormones to help aid in sexual activity. “These were timed for Eva Braun’s visits,” novelist Martin Amis outlined in an interview. It was meant to be what he called a modern-day Viagra to aid in the Führer’s libido.
British historian Ian Kershaw’s extensive research on Hitler revealed a complicated sex life in his 2008 biography. He wrote that Hitler found sexual activity disgusting and even had an irrational fear of sexually transmitted diseases.
“By no means would I describe Adolf Hitler as sexually normal in his relationships with women,” Nazi architect Albert Speer once explained after World War II had ended. “In the case of Eva Braun in particular, it seems clear to me that aside from occasional passionate episodes there was no sexual activity at all for long periods of time.”
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), those who suffer from the condition “could have problems with abnormal spraying of urine and might have to sit to urinate.” It’s typically attributed to the testicle not fully descending into the scrotum. “If hypospadias is not treated it can lead to problems later in life, such as difficulty performing sexual intercourse or difficulty urinating while standing.”
If the theoretical condition “Napoleon Complex” was named for Napoleon’s small stature, perhaps hypospadias can be renamed for one of its most famous sufferers.
