Different parts of your skin absorb medications differently. Applying Androgel to your penis or scrotum may result in unpredictable absorption of the drug (too much, or too less).
Also, strict application guidelines are recommended to prevent transfer of the drug to others. Androgel has the potential to cause serious harm to women & children.
Finally, Androgel would like dry out your genitals.

I would not recommend applying any gel to the genitals... as an alcohol based gel, it would most likely BURN... and that in itself is enough to make you want to avoid doing it. Also, another person has pointed out the dosage and regulation problem. Although it make seem like a logical question, don't try it.
