I want to ask, why the skin on the penis is darker than skin complexion of the whole body? And do women like to look at penis?

It is probably because the penis is least exposed to light. This part isn’t exposed and remains close almost at every time, except when you bath or remain naked for some time. In addition with the use of undergarments there tends to be least passage of air to the penis making it look dark. Moreover skin complexion has nothing to do with the penis skin. It usually is dark in our part of the world.

If you observe, men from other nations say US, Europe have fairer penises as their body is designed that way, while Africans posses a very dark penis since they are made that way. As for women lining to see it, of course they would love to see a penis no matter what colour it is if it is clean. Women do love a clean cock, so make sure you keep it clean.

The skin around the groin or the pubic region is normally darker than the rest of the body. This is due to pigmentation in this area. Some amount of darkening is normal. However if the skin is dark, patchy or thick, it may require medical advice.

Dark skin in this area is normally due to increased insulin levels, due to obesity, diabetes or could be the side effects of some medication. You have not told us your weight?

What do you mean - do women like to look at the penis? Unless you are in a relationship with a woman do not ever think of showing your penis to a woman. You will surely get in trouble with the law if the woman screams.

Thats more of an anthropological issue, Yasir. 

There are mainly three races, Caucasoid, Negroid, and Mongoloid. Later on Australoid was treated as the fourth one. India is surrounded by countries as well as being explored by different countries in different time. Its a multi race country where the major population falls under Australoid. For this race, the skin color is darkish, and genital color is deeper. 

If you have seen Caucasoid or negroid, they have almost the same color. Most mongoloids has the same color too. But rest of the Australoid and a big part of Mongoloids have deeper genital area.

Do women like to look at penis, it varies person to person. most cases I can sense, they want to feel in vagina, hand and mouth in dark, means they dont like the visual effect. But a lot loves to see in light or broad day light.

I saw a documentary on vagina museum, a guy makes plastered vagina on real woman, and he has a collection of 400 plus. All are in the wall. Unfortunately there is no penis museum anyone has made. Else girls would love to visit there to see the diversity. Anyway, my hunch is, woman love to see penis, but they dont want to say openly.
