  : I think his shyness has alot to do with Urology. First off he posted before
  : about being born with 1 testical, and i think as a person this is realy playing on his mind.
  : I have the exact same problem as he has and the shyness Is the same to a T
  : He as me are going through a rough time and tend to shy away from people,
  : and even more so females. Its hard becouse you want to but "cant" have a sexual
  : live because your scared to expose your self and what other might think of you.
  : Your scared of females and cant think of things to say because you might think they'll
  : like you and posibly want to date you. And for you having to turn down some one would be
  : hurtful. You might also shy away because your scared if some one got to know you
  : they might not like you as a person because your always finding ways or thinking of
  : the problem you have. maby even having to lie to people.
  : Im not sure if this is the reason way.. But im going through the same thing as you
  : and this is the only thing i can come up with.. and it ends up just being
  : a bunch of run arounds..
  : I quit high school for 2 years because i was feeling so shy and wanting to
  : shy away from people so much.. I got some not bad acne and thats what did it..
  : not only was i shy and never could speak but now a had a apearence problem that
  : ended up me staying in my room for 2 years.. my face got better and and i went back to school
  : and now i desided i realy need some help..
  : My problem with my testical plays more on my mind then i think..
  : My problem is i cant find much information on the subject..
  : And im to "SHY" to go to a doctor like i should..
  : Im sorry if this seemed off topic but i think it relates.
  : If you could get your testical problem dealt with it would be alot easyer to
  : deal with your shyness. For one you wouldnt have to hide anything from any one.
  : And you could have a normal dating life.
  : Im realy hoping all this is true because its my only hope in life to having a normal
  : life.. I need help and im looking for in now..
  : Thanks.
  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.

Dear Matt,
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..
Good luck!
