Soft Glans Syndrome: Overview

Content Written By: Irwin Goldstein, MD

Soft glans syndrome may be defined as a sexual arousal disorder in which the corpora cavernosa of the penis are fully erect but the corpus cavernosum and the glans penis remain soft and cold, thus adversely affecting both the appearance of the erect penis and the ability to achieve penetration during sexual activity. There are no epidemiologic studies concerning the prevalence of the soft glans condition. Few physicians make inquiries to patients with sexual dysfunction whether the glans penis engorges and gets firm during sexual arousal. Specifically, the most commonly utilized psychometrically-valid measure of male sexual arousal does not address glans engorgement or glans firmness.
