Fijian penis marbles: an example of artificial penile nodules.

Author information

  • 1Department of Medicine, Tripler Army Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii 96859.


Artificial penile nodules are inert objects inserted beneath the skin of the penis to enhance the pleasure of female sexual partners during intercourse. The practice is most common among men from southeast Asia. This report describes a Fijian man who had an artificial penile nodule made from a whittled-down plastic toothbrush handle. Although some authors believe that the use of artificial penile nodules arose after World War II, the practice was discussed in the Kama Sutra, the classic Indian treatise on love.
