Yes, it’s a medical term that refers to the prepuce – the sheath of skin around an erect penis that typically has hair on the end.
The word “wenis” was coined by FOX in its series “American Dad!”, and is not a real medical term. There is no such thing as a medical condition or diagnosis called wenis or penile foreskin disorder.
News outlets were fooled into reporting it as such when first introduced in November 2006. They’re still making headlines, using quotes from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair about his son’s experience with “penile foreskin disorders”.
It is not. “Vagina” and “penis” are medical terms whereas, because wenis doesn’t exist as a body part, it cannot be a proper medical term to describe one. It’s always difficult to know what has given rise to this question but we suspect that the individual asking the question may have seen an anatomical diagram which highlighted all the structures of the reproductive system. In this case, they probably saw external genitals like labia/testicles labeled with their corresponding medical term followed by an internal organ such as ovaries/anus labeled with its name followed by other words and phrases defining more about it or describing it (e.g., meta-laparotomy).
Wenis is the word for mons pubis, which usually refers to a woman’s pubic hair and in more scientific terms, it can be short hand for the “pubic mound”. The Wenis term also gives way to some childhood humour about the outer labia or vagina called “taint” or veejay-jee-jay.
If you’re a future parent wondering how much hair down there they should encourage their teen progeny to remove when that time comes – don’t worry about it. Let them make up their own mind when they want to wean off of puberty blockers and feel ready for something like that without worrying what you would think!
“Wenis” is an obsolete medical term for a disease called peyronie’s disease, which is a condition that causes painful bending of the penis in some men. The word wenis has not been used since 1959. Some say that the word was taken from a combination of wen (a benign lump) and cyst (a growth with no way out). Wenis then means “having many lumps.” This etymology makes sense because Peyronie’s Disease is thought to be caused by scar tissue buildup within the penis due to repeated trauma, such as after an accident or surgery.
Wenis is a common medical term, yes. Dr. Benjamin Spock first coined the word to describe a fungus on the penis.
I have often heard people use this term when describing an ingrown hair or other rash around that area (although not specifically on the “penis”).
Wenis can be very painful and uncomfortable, and it’s important to see your doctor for treatment options like using antifungal creams or medication to combat against it. Without treatment, wenist can potentially become infected with Staphylococcus bacteria which becomes quite dangerous because these infections are resistant to many antibiotics.
The term Wenis is often credited as being coined by Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live–but given its usage, it would be more likely that Thompson was commenting on someone else’s very real term for the medical region. If they were trying to use an invented word when coining this…that seems like a lot of time and effort for something that only a handful of people will ever hear.
It is important as any good nerd to know what one talks about before assigning themselves a made-up or misspelled medical terminology. This is why I propose that Theobald invented wenis when she cannot recall the correct spelling of ‘weinie’
Wenis is not a real medical term. It was created by the writers of South Park as a misconception in an episode that aired on November 13, 2013 called “Tweek x Craig.”
The word Wenis is actually a medical term coined within in the past decade that means “genitalia on one’s arm.” Just as women use their bikini line as a reference point for referring to their pubic region, so too can men use their Wenis and proceed from there. Women, however, do not have this anatomical structure- so once again things get unequal! It’s time we all shrug off these gender norms and stop putting people into boxes- what ever happened to fluidity?
Wenis is a medical term first coined in episode 6 of the TV show Rescue Me.
It’s also informally known as “pancake butt,” so that’s some additional medical slang for you, come to think of it. It refers to when someone has excess weight gain in the abdominal region which pushes their rear up and out. It can get more cumbersome when they bend over, giving a pancake appearance from behind – hence wenis!
Yes, and it’s used correctly. Wenis is a made-up medical term that has been shown to be appropriate in the context of removing benign cysts from a woman’s labia minora. Apart from this usage, wenis is not considered an accurate or preferred medical term to describe any anatomy because it lacks specificity and does not have distinct boundaries providing a clear demarcation of where one area terminates and another begins.
