It's hard to believe that a urologist with a firm grasp of his specialty could fail at simple arithmetic, but that's how it seems in the first paragraph of Judith Moore's interview with Dr. Moseley ("Health: It's Not Easy Being Hard," April 8). Although the image of a collective penis is even further out than Craig Carlson's photo of an inflatable prosthesis, let's get it straight: what the boys are fascinated with, what they know get erect when they touch them, and what they play with in the bathtub in addition to their duckies are their penes or penises. Shame!
