Hitler probably had a deformed penis, according to historians

In the new book Hitler’s Last Day: Minute by Minute, Emma Craigle and Jonathan Mayo do a deep dive into the last hours of Adolf Hitler's life, reconstructing a compelling narrative by referencing super interesting texts about the homicidal monster…like his medical records.

In addition to having an undescended testicle, Hitler is said to have suffered from a not-all that rare condition known as hypospadias that can result in an odd-placement of the urethra.

"Hitler himself is believed to have had two forms of genital abnormality: an undescended testicle and a rare condition called penile hypospadias in which the urethra opens on the under side of the penis," Craigle and Mayo explain matter of factly.


According to the CDC boys born with hypospadias are sometimes known to "have problems with abnormal spraying of urine and might have to sit to urinate" and "If hypospadias is not treated it can lead to problems later in life, such as difficulty performing sexual intercourse or difficulty urinating while standing."

Craigle and Mayo also allege that Theodor Morell, Hitler's physician, prescribed his patient a potent cocktail of supplementary testosterone and amphetamines to assist the Fuhrer with his rumored low sex drive.

While Craigle and Mayo's findings should be taken with a healthy grain of salt, it's worth pointing out that this discovery jibes with the lyrics to a popular anti-Hitler song from the late 1930s called "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball." It's about Hitler only having one ball.
