Genital bisection is a body modification practice seen at least in 21st-century developed cultures. The practice involves splitting the penis (and occasionally the scrotum as well). This still allows for erection, though often the two halves curve into each other, making insertion more difficult but not preventing it.
Genital bisection is an extension of a subincision, which is an extension of a meatotomy. As the urethra is exposed, some pleasure can be derived, due to the great abundance of nerves. This is one of many potential reasons why those who undergo previous procedures may choose to take it further, though in some cases the bisection might be done all at once.
Variations include keeping the glans intact so that only the penile shaft is bisected.
