Some men have small veins related to the skin and some have large ones. Their prominence varies from individual to individual and will change with an erection. Your description sounds to be that of a normal penis.
Vigorous sexual activity, be it masturbation, vaginal, anal or oral, may abrade the skin and be uncomfortable and is not related to the underlying veins. The skin will recover fairly quickly from the trauma.

I have the same problem. It's not normal because I didn't use to have it before. It's dark blue/purple veins in the shape of a pentagon that looks like it has arms and legs on the right side of my penis. There is bruising around the area which varies in discoloration from day to day but never completely goes away. I've seen other people post similar problems and the doctor's just say it's normal. My penis tends to bend to the left slightly now whether hard or soft. When I'm hard, the right side of the head of my penis is very noticably deflated while the left side is normal. On the shaft, the side where my bruise is bows out and seems thicker than normal. The weirdest thing is the seam underneath the center of my penis (or at least used to be) has shifted about 45 degrees to the left. I've had this since november, it doesn't really seem to be getting worse, but I am very self-concious about it and have not been with anyone since. I'm thinking they are varicose veins which would explain the deflated head and inflated shaft, but I think tiny busted cappilaries coming off the v.v.'s are causing the bruising. I wish there was something I could do but I've pretty much accepted the fact that I'm screwed for life, which really, really sucks.
