Your penis is not just a banana-shaped organ, it has many not-so-known facts hidden and as it turns out that most men actually know very little about their penises. Following are 15 facts to keep your penis healthy for a long time.
The average male orgasm lasts 6 seconds. Women get 23 seconds. Which means if women were really interested in equality, they’d make sure we have four orgasms for every one of theirs.
Only one man in 400 is flexible enough to give himself oral pleasure. It’s estimated, however, that all 400 have given it their best shot at some point.
The penis that’s been enjoyed by the most women could be that of King Fatefehi of Tonga, who supposedly deflowered 37,800 women between the years 1770 and 1784—that’s about seven virgins a day.
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.
The oldest known species with a penis is a hard-shelled sea creature called Colymbosathon ecplecticos. That’s Greek for “amazing swimmer with large penis.” Which officially supplants Buck Naked as the best porn name, ever.
The most common cause of penile rupture: vigorous masturbation. Some risks are just worth taking.
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 most handsome men. The women chose the best sperm producers most often.
An enlarged prostate gland can cause both erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. If you have an unexplained case of either, your doctor’s looking forward to checking your prostate. Even if you’re not.
There are two types of penises. One kind expands and lengthens when becoming erect (a grower). The other appears big most of the time but doesn’t get much bigger after achieving an erection (a shower).
No brain is necessary for ejaculation. That order comes from the spinal cord. Finding a living vessel for said ejaculation, however, takes hours of careful thought and, often, considerable amounts of alcohol.
Doctors can now grow skin for burn victims using the foreskins of circumcised infants. One foreskin can produce 23,000 square meters, which would be enough to tarp every Major League infield with human flesh.
Circumcised foreskin can be reconstructed. The movable 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. Years can pass until complete coverage is attained.
An international survey reports that 79 percent of men have growers, 21 percent have showers.
This is one of the most controversial facts but it turns out that size does matter: The longer your penis, the better “semen displacement” you’ll achieve when having sex with a woman flush with competing sperms. That’s according to researchers at the State University of New York, who used artificial phalluses to test the “scooping” mechanism of the penis’s coronal ridge.
German researchers say the average intercourse lasts 2 minutes, 50 seconds, yet women perceive it as lasting 5 minutes, 30 seconds.
