Since time immemorial man has organized himself into relationships with others. From the basic man and woman relationship to the more infrequently seen transgender relationships, we all have a strong desire to partner-up. But in all history there is one relationship that stands out as probably the most unusual (and believe me, there have been a lot of extremely bizarre relationships). For a relationship like this to happen, extreme coincidences have to come into play â€“ and as you will see, they did, just once, in nineteenth century Paris.The PlayersJuan Baptista dos Santos
Juan Baptista dos Santos was born in Portugal around 1843 in the town of Faro and was examined for the first time when he was only six months old. His parents and two siblings were well formed and it was said that his gestation and birth were uneventful. As a child, Juan was considered quite handsome, fit and well proportioned â€“ except for the two distinct penises and third leg he possessed. Santosâ€™ third leg was actually two legs which were fused together and while it lacked motor control, it could be moved freely by hand. Both penises functioned perfectly. An 1865 report stated that Santos used both penises during intercourse and, after finishing with one he would continue with the other. It also stated that he had a ravenous sexual appetite.Blanche Dumas
It is believed that Blanche Dumas was born on the island of Martinique in 1860 to a French father and a mother was a quadroon (one quarter black). She had a very broad pelvis, two imperfectly developed legs and a third leg attached to her coccygeus and, in addition to normal well developed breasts, she also had two smaller rudimentary breasts â€“ complete with nipples â€“ close together above her pubic area. Furthermore Blanche also had two vaginas and two well-developed vulvas and, allegedly, both had equally developed sensitivity. Her sexual appetite was said to be very pronounced. She was know to have many male admirers and was know to â€˜entertainâ€™ men with both her vaginas. Due to her obviously suitability to the role, she moved to Paris and became a courtesan.The Disorder
Diphallia (also known as Penile Duplication) is a condition in which a male is born with two penises. It is a rare disorder with only 1,000 cases recorded. Sufferers are also at a higher risk of spina bifida than men with one penis. A person with diphallia can urinate from one or both of his penises. In most cases, both penises are side by side and the same size, but occasionally one smaller penis will sit atop another larger one. One in 5.5 million men in the United States have two penises. Characteristics of diphallia are:
Those in possession of a diphallus tend to be sterile, due to either congenital defects or difficulties in application.
Urine may be passed by both penises, by only one, or through some other aperture in the perineum.
A range of duplication types have been seen, ranging from organs that fissure into two, to the presence of two distinct penises positioned at some distance from each other.
Most diphalluses lie side by side and are of equal size, but they can be seated atop one another, with one distinctly larger than the other.
Now that you have met the two main players and the disorder, I am sure you can see where this is heading.The Relationship
They say that fact is stranger than fiction and this relationship certainly proves that adage. Dumas and Santos met in Paris and had a torrid (and rather well publicized) relationship. Both had found the only living human at the time who had the capacity to satisfy their appetite and their bodies. History has given us some odd mixes but there can be no doubt that the love affair of these two human marvels is unparalleled and, frankly, I canâ€™t even begin to imagine that something more bizarre will occur again. So remember in future if you think you will never find a mate; nature has a way of providing for all of us â€“ no matter how unusual we are.http://cogitz.com/
