25 Interesting Penis Facts

Guys, how many of you know more about the pipes in your house than your own plumbing?
Ladies, how well do you know his little friend?

For as often as we have sex or want to have better sex, isn’t it about time that you knew and understood the penis?

 

Valuable info about Penis Facts1. Think of Masturbation as a Healthy Workout

You need to have erections regularly to keep your penis in shape. To maintain a healthy tone, the smooth muscle of the penis must be periodically enriched with oxygen by the rush of blood that engorges the penis and makes it erect. Without regular erections, penile tissue can become less elastic and shrink, making the penis 1-2 centimeters shorter.

2. Smoking Can Stunt Your Growth

Smoking can shorten your penis by as much as a centimeter. Erections are all about good blood flow, and lighting up calcifies blood vessels, stifling erectile circulation.

3. A Penis Can Be a Grower or a Show-er

There is no consistent relationship between the size of the flaccid penis and its full erect length. In one study of 80 men, researchers found that increases from flaccid to erect lengths ranged widely, from less than a quarter-inch to 3.5 inches longer. On average, a limp penis will increase in volume 300% when it is erect.

4. Sweet Dreams

On average, men get nine erections during the REM phase of sleep. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hot sex dream or a zombie apocalypse nightmare — the penis just gets hard during that period of the sleep cycle.

5. Want to Appeal to a Man’s Most Sensitive Side? It’s Likely Not in His Head.

The head of his penis, that is. In a study published in the British Journal of Urology International in 2009, the underside of the glans and underside of the shaft had the highest sensitivity rating for a significant majority of men, followed by the upper side of the glans, left and right sides of the glans, sides of the penis, upper side of the shaft, and foreskin (for uncircumcised men).

6. Every Penis Was Once a Clitoris

Every penis in the womb starts as a clitoris before hormones ‘sex’ the brain of a to-be male. The penis retains the mark of its female heritage with the dark underskin and the thin ridge or seam, known as the raphe, which runs from scrotum to anus, which is a fusion of the vaginal lips.

7. Sensitivity Declines with Age

Sensitivity in the penis starts to decline at about age 25. The sharpest decline in sensitivity is seen between ages of 65 and 75.

8. Vibrators Work on the Penis, Too

Vibrators aren’t just for women. They work on the penis, too. In fact, vibration is so effective on the penis that often men with spinal cord injuries can ejaculate with the aid of a special medical vibrator. For this kind of treatment, the vibrator is usually held against the underside of the head of the penis.

9. It’s Bigger Than You Think

Most guys would be proud to know that their penis is twice as long as they think it is. That’s because half the length of the penis is inside the body. Just like you don’t see all of a big oak tree above ground, you don’t see the root of a penis tucked up inside the pelvis and attached to the pubic bone.

10. Most Men Aren’t Circumcised

Worldwide, approximately 30% of males aged 15 and older are circumcised, according to a 2007 report from the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNAIDS. According to the report, rates vary greatly depending upon religion and nationality. Almost all Jewish and Muslim males in the world have circumcised penises, and together they account for almost 70% of all circumcised males globally. About 80% of American men are circumcised.

11. A Healthy Sex Life

Having sex at least once a week can lower a man’s risk of heart disease by 30%, stroke by 50%, and diabetes by 40%. Men with an active sex life are also more likely to live past 80 years

12. Women Usually Win Out

Sorry, guys. The average male orgasm lasts six seconds. A woman’s typically lasts 23 seconds.

13. Suck My Dick?

Only one man in 400 is flexible enough to give himself a blow job. It’s a safe bet that all 400 have given it their best shot at some point.

14. Yes, a Penis Can Rupture

The most common cause of penile rupture is vigorous masturbation.

15. Once you go Black?

The Kinsey Report verified the longstanding rumor that black men have larger penises than white guys, but not by much. The average black male’s hard-on measures 6.3 inches, leaving the white man in a close second with a mean of 6.2 inches.

16. The Way to a Man’s Heart is Through His Nose

The smells of licorice, pumpkin pie, lavender, donuts and chocolate are reputed to increase penile blood flow. (Note that beer and bacon didn’t make the cut.)

17. Funky Spunk

Asparagus, red meat and dairy are reported to produce the least pleasant tasting jizz. Guys just might want to rethink Steak and Blow Job Day (March 14).

18. Where do You Put That Thing?

The largest medically verified erect penis is 13.5 inches long and 6.25 inches in circumference. Just to put that in perspective, the average vagina is three to four inches deep.

19. Guys, You’re All Hung Line a Horse

Most mammals have a bone called the baculumor ospenis in the penis, but it is absent in humans and horses.

20. Men Will Go Limp if They Drink Too Much
How much is too much? About 3½ drinks for a 150-pound man.

21. Geographically Desirable Penises

Men in the Republic of Congo have the average largest erect penises of 7.1 inches. The U.S. ranks 18th in terms of average erect human male penis length at 5.1 inches. North and South Korea rank last at 3.8 inches,

22. Juicy Penises

In 1954, a man ejaculated 0.50721 ounces of seminal fluid. The average releases about 0.1082049 ounces.

23. Blood Lust

It takes around 130 ml of blood for a penis to stiffen. The circulation rate must be very high at 2 ml per second. The small arteries, with a diameter of around 0.5 mm when the penis is resting, will double their diameter to convey the blood.

24. What’s Officially Considered Small?

A micropenis refers to penises that are shorter than 2.8 inches in length when stretched. The condition affects only six in 1,000 men. It’s caused by inadequate testosterone at a late stage of fetal development.

25. Blue Balls are for Real

Men actually do get blue balls, which is technically called prostatic congestion. It’s caused by trapped blood. A warm shower, aspirin, or an orgasm usually will relieve the achiness.
