Rediscover Your Penis

Rediscover Your Penis

10 things you didn’t know about your penis….

The penis (plural penises, penes) is an external sexual organ of certain biologically male organisms, in both vertebrates and invertebrates. The penis is a reproductive organ, technically an intromittent organ, and for placental mammals, additionally serves as the external organ of urination. The penis is generally found on mammals and reptiles. Guess what you or someone you know has one, so get ready to learn more about the penis than you have before.

1. Your Penis Has a Mind of Its Own

All men have been in a situation when the penis seemingly has a mind of its own. This is because the penis is controlled by the autonomic nerves system, not the thoughts in our minds.

The autonomic nerves system is responsible for regulating heart rate and blood pressure, therefore the penis is not always under conscious control, talk about sex being a primal instinct.

In addition, impulses from the brain in the REM stage of sleep can cause erections, whether you’re dreaming about sex or driving your new car. Heavy lifting or straining during bowl movements can also produce an erection.

Just like the penis can grow without consent, it can also shrink. “The flaccid penis varies in size considerably within a given man,” says Drogo Montague, MD, a urologist at the Cleveland Clinic.

Exposure to cold water or air makes your penis shrink, this is due to the function of our sympathetic nervous system. Psychological stress also involves the sympathetic nervous system, and stress has the same effect as a cold shower.

When you’re relaxed and feeling well, your flaccid penis looks bigger than when you’re stressed out.

The penis is “kind of a barometer of the sympathetic nervous system,” Montague says. So the greeting, “How’s it hanging?” is more apt than you might have realized.

2. Your Penis May Be a ‘Grower’ or a ‘Show-er’

It is estimates that 79 percent of men have growers and the remaining 21 percent have show-ers. A penis that doesn’t gain much length with an erection is known as a show-er, and a penis that gains a lot if known as a grower. These are not medical terms, and there is current threshold to categorize the two.

One study showed that the size increase from flaccid to an erect penis ranges widely, from less than one inch up to 3 and a half inches longer.

An analysis of more than thousand measurements taken by sex researcher Alfred Kinsey shows that shorter flaccid penises tend to gain about twice as much length as longer flaccid penises

3. Your Penis Is Shaped Like a Boomerang

The appearance and curvature of the penis differs greatly, however, the overall shape is something all men have in common – the penis is shaped like a boomerang.

Because the root of the penis is tucked away inside the pelvis and attached to pubic bone, it is not apparent that the penis is in fact, shaped in similar way to boomerang.

One method of surgical “penis enlargement” is to cut the suspensory ligament that holds the root of the penis up inside the pelvis. The operation may add length to the penis, but because the suspensory ligament is responsible for making an erection sturdy, the penis may lose its upward angle, and become loose at the base. This lack of sturdiness can lead to injury.

4. You Can Break Your Penis

There is no “penis bone,” but it is still possible to break your penis, this is known as a penile fracture.

Common causes of penile fracture include the man thrusting too hard during sex, or the woman moving too wildly while on top.

When it happens, there is “an audible pop or snap”, followed by intense pain and bruising of the penis.

Penile fracture is rare and typically occurs in younger men because their erections tend to be quite rigid.

Another fairly common injury is a penile rupture. The most common cause of this injury is due to vigorous masturbation.

5. Curved Shape May Become More Prominent With Age

Peyronie’s syndrome is a related condition that tends to show up more in older men, Montague says. An older man’s erection may not be as rigid, but still is hard enough for sex. Over time, if the penis bends too much a certain way during sex, small tears in the tissue can form scars, and the accumulated scar tissue gives the penis an abnormally curved shape.

Not all penis curvature is a problem, however. “There is a lot of variability in what normal is,” Cummings says.

6. Most Penises in the World Are Uncircumcised.

According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), an estimated 30 percent of males aged 15 and up are circumcised.

Number vary greatly depending upon religion and nationality. Almost all Jewish and Muslim males are circumcised, and together that account for around 70 percent of all circumcised men in the world.

The United States has the highest proportion of males circumcised for non-religious reasons. Around 75 percent of non-Jewish, non-Muslim American men are circumcised, compared to Canada, where only 30% are, or the the UK where only 20 percent of males circumcised for non-religious reasons,

While the practice of circumcising baby boys for medical and cosmetic reasons has become controversial in the U.S., the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UUNAIDS still recommended circumcision for adult men, based upon evidence that men with circumcised penises have a lower risk of being infected with HIV.

Circumcised foreskin can also be reconstructed. In the procedure, which may take years until complete coverage is reached, the skin on the shaft of the penis is pulled toward the tip and set in place with tape. Later doctors apply plastic rings, caps, and weights to aid the stretching of the skin.

7. Smoking Can Effect Your Erection

Strong erections are all about good blood flow. We all know smoking kills, but did you know that the damage inflicted on your blood flow can shorten your penis by up to a centimeter? Time to quit?

8. Size Does Matter

Turns out size does matter: The longer your penis, the better “semen displacement” you’ll achieve when having sex with a woman flush with competing sperm. That’s according to researchers at the State University of New York, who used artificial phalluses (ahem) to test the “scooping” mechanism of the penis’s coronal ridge. Next up: curing cancer.

9. Enlarged Prostate Gland Effect Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation

An enlarged prostate gland can cause both erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. If you are suffering from either of these symptoms you should visit the doctor.

10. Better Looking Men Have Stronger Sperm

According to a recent study, better-looking men may have stronger sperm. Spanish researchers showed women photos of guys who had good, average, and lousy sperm and told them to pick the handsomest men, in most cases the women picked men with higher sperm counts.
