Happy to not suffer from a shrinking penis

David Brook’s book The Social Animal makes reference to a mental condition known as koro.

Koro is a culture-specific syndrome from Southeast Asia in which the person has an overpowering belief that his penis is shrinking and will shortly disappear. Also known as shrinking penis, the syndrome is listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

The world is such a strange and frightening place.
