Sanitary pads for men are disposable in a storage mode in which they are flat and non-overlapping for easy carrying in pockets. The sanitary pads may be folded in order to form generally semi-cylindrical portions which envelop the wearer's penis and prevent embarrassment to incontinent men. In the storage or carrying mode, the pad may alternately be T-shaped or constructed in a generally rectangular shape. Adhesive means, such as double sided tape, or fabric loop and hook fasteners may be used to secure the pads in proper position. The pads are a layered structure including an inner relatively thick layer of absorbent material, a water barrier layer made of plastic, and an outer relatively thin absorbent layer.
