The head of the penis contains many nerve endings that make it very sensitive. However, it is possible for a penis to be too sensitive, which can impact sexual and everyday activities. Some level of penile sensitivity is necessary for arousal and obtaining an erection. But a hypersensitive penis may lead to discomfort and distress.

Phimosis is a condition that occurs when the foreskin cannot pull back from around the tip of the penis completely.
Numb penis: Causes, symptoms, and how to regain sensitivity
Subrina Jesmin, Chishimba N. Body tissues are traditionally classified as estrogen targets based on both the response to the hormone and the presence of estrogen receptors ERs. In the adult, both ERs were concentrated largely to the urethral epithelia and vascular and neuronal structures. The present study provides the first evidence for ER expression in the penis. Thus, our data add the penis to the list of estrogen-responsive tissues in males and provide a base and insight for future studies aimed at investigating a functional role of estrogen in the penis, especially in development.
