Posted on Tue, 12 May 2015
Question: I just gave a guy a blow job and had sex with him. We had always used condoms but this time we didn't. He has this spot that looks like it was a rip a long time ago but it is whiter than the rest of his penis and it tasted metallic. He said he ripped his skin the first time he had sex 7 years ago and it bleed a lot where he had to go to the hospital. I understand the ripped look but should it be white and metallic tasting?

Brief Answer:
Scar tissue

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting HCM with your health care questions

You have recently performed oral sex on your boy friend and you noticed that he has a large scar on his penis. This scar tissue appears very white and was a distinct taste difference than the rest of the penis. The color difference is due to scar tissue that is thick and irregular skin. This also will taste different because the chemical make-up and the number of blood vessels in the scar is different than the surround tissue. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact me again with your health care questions and concerns
