Maybe this will explain Adolf Hitler’s well-known Napoleon complex and his special salute, which is symbolically phallic by many accounts.
Historians have shown that Hitler had a condition that may explain his anger issues and his lack of a sex life. The Daily Star reports that medical records after his 1923 arrest show that Hitler had “right-side cryptorchidism,” the medical term for an undescended testicle.
More detailed records suggest that his deformity may have been even more severe.These new records indicate that the Nazi leader also suffered from hypospadias, which can leave a man with a “micro-penis.”
Someone with hypospadias may need to urinate from a small hole at the base of the penis.In historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craig’s new book, Hitler’s Last Day: Minute by Minute (Short Books, 2015), they suggest that Hitler kept this secret close to himself.
Hitler’s fear of being seen naked is well documented. And even though he pushed Germans to have more Aryan children, he never had any children himself.
His personal doctor, Theodor Morell, prescribed lots of drugs for Hitler’s romps with Eva Braun, in order to boost his libido. This was because the German dictator could not have normal sexual relations with a female and he needed medication if he wanted to do so. This in part would explain Hitler’s dependence on Morell, a quack doctor, something that baffled even senior Nazis.
Albert Speer, the man responsible for the massive buildings designed for the Third Reich, said, “By no means would I describe Adolf Hitler as sexually normal in his relationships with women. In the case of Eva Braun in particular, it seems clear to me that aside from occasional passionate episodes there was no sexual activity at all for long periods of time.”
There are rumors that a piece of shrapnel hit Hitler in the testicles during the Battle of the Somme in World War I.
Many Brits loved these stories about their arch-enemy. As seen in the playground chant to the tune of the Colonel Bogey March that was written for the British Council in 1939 to raise morale: “Hitler has only got one ball, Goring has two but very small, Himmler as something similar but poor old Goebbels has no balls at all.”
In spite of Hitler’s low libido, he still managed to be quite the ladies’ man. A department in his government was set up specifically to deal with all the fan mail sent from obsessed female fans.
