I am in my twenties and still a virgin. The reason is because I too am very shy. Part of the reason is because I have a downward curve to my penis and am ashamed to become intimate with a girl.
Perhaps when the resources become available I will see about the possibility of correcting this defect. But until then, it's going to be a major hang-up with me. Shyness related to urology? You bet.
I understand your focus on your genitals but I think that their is a more generalized problem with which you are dealing. You need an emotional evaluation and probably some assistance in this area. I do think that with strong motivation you can make great strides. Your first step has been coming forward and stating that a problem exists. Now to move forward!
I suggest that you seek such at a department of psychiatry/psychology at an academic center in your vicinity..
