Folks consider the size of their penis a great deal. We additionally invest a considerable amount of energy contemplating the size of penis of different folks. We don’t have any science to back this up, however it’s genuinely plainly obvious that folks ponder about their penis a lot.
In any case, how well do you know your penis?
Here’s some penis-related realities you may discover helpful in a bar test or in case you’re running out of evening gathering discussion.
What are the bits and pieces that make up the penis?
There’s three key parts that you should be acquainted with – Radix, Corpus, and Epithelium.
The base of the penis
This is alluded to as the radix. The radix is the appended part, comprising of the bulb of penis in the center and the crus of the penis. One on one or the other side of the bulb. It exists in the shallow perineal pocket.
The body of the penis
This is known as the corpus. The corpus has two surfaces: dorsal - posterosuperior in the erect penis, and ventral or urethral - facing downwards and in reverse in the flabby penis. The ventral surface is set apart by a score a horizontal way.
The epithelium of the penis
This comprises of the shaft skin, the prepuce, and the preputial mucosa within the prepuce and covering the glans penis. The epithelium isn’t joined to the basic shaft so it’s allowed to skim forward and backward.
What’s the structure of the penis?
A man’s penis is made up of three columns of tissue. Two corpora cavernosa lie next to each other on the dorsal side and one corpus spongiosum lies between them on the ventral side.
The enlarged and bulbous-shaped end of the corpus spongiosum forms the glans penis. That supports the foreskin, or prepuce, a loose fold of skin that in adults can retract to expose the glans. The area on the underside of the penis, where the foreskin is attached, is called the frenum, or frenulum. The rounded base of the glans is called the corona. The perineal raphe is the noticeable line along the underside of the penis.
The urethra, which is the last part of the urinary tract, traverses the corpus spongiosum. Its opening, known as the meatus, lies on the tip of the glans penis. It’s a passage both for urine and for the ejaculation of semen.
The raphe is the visible ridge between the lateral halves of the penis. Found on the ventral or underside of the penis, running from the meatus – the opening of the urethra - across the scrotum to the perineum, which is the area between the scrotum and the anus.
The human penis differs from those of most other mammals, as it has no baculum, or erectile bone. It instead relies entirely on engorgement with blood to reach its erect state. It can’t be withdrawn into the groin. It’s larger than average in the animal kingdom – in proportion to body mass.
How big should a guy’s penis be?
Measurements vary. Studies that rely on self-measurement reporting are significantly higher average than those with a health professional measuring. A 2015 review of 15,521 men – measured by health professionals – concluded that the average length of an erect human penis is 13.12 cm (5.17 inches) long. The average circumference of an erect human penis is 11.66 cm (4.59 inches).
On entering puberty, the penis, scrotum and testicles will enlarge toward maturity. During the process, pubic hair grows above and around the penis. A large-scale study concluded that penile growth is typically complete not later than age 17. And possibly earlier.
Penis size difference is most likely caused by genetics. However, there are some studies that suggest that environmental factors such as fertility medications, diet, or exposure to chemical pollution could have an impact.
Which country has the biggest penises in the world?
This is another classic question. And very often a starter of huge arguments.
This is a question that scientists have been working hard to get to the bottom of – seriously. Sometimes the data can be misleading. We must be looking at measurements taken by health professionals. Self-measuring and self-reporting studies are always returning false results.
The global average penis size is 5.5 inches – when erect. It is measured from the tip of the penis to the bottom of the pubic bone.
There’s also lots of variation of size within a country. Just because we live in the country.
With all those caveats, the data indicates that the Democratic Republic of Congo boasts the men with the biggest penises – they’re clocking in at an average of 7.1 inches.
The guys in the UK? It’s 5.5 inches – which is average. Very average. I am sure that Aussies are much bigger. Just a guess of course. Unbiased… Yeah…
Can I make my penis bigger?
The short answer is no – you’re pretty much stuck with what you’ve got. Eh, how disappointing! Then again, if you look how well “enlargement techniques” are sold, not many people believe that.
Researchers from King’s College hospital in London, publishing their findings in the journal Sexual Medicine Reviews. They concluded that procedures to make penises larger do not work, are ineffective and risky. And even leave many men physically or psychologically scarred.
According to the researchers, there is scant evidence that the range of procedures men undergo in a bid to enlarge their penis actually produce that result. The treatments carry a high risk of complications, including permanent numbness. Most men who undergo penile extension are dissatisfied with the results afterwards. However, the new ones keep trying. That is how size is important for so many guys.
Penis fillers – designed to increase the girth of your dick – seem to be growing in popularity. A penis filler is a liquid – usually hyaluronic acid – which is injected into the soft tissue under the skin of the shaft. It is designed to increase your flaccid girth. Usually by one or two centimeters in circumference - depending on the amount injected.
Apparently it lasts for around 18 months. However, this type of procedure doesn’t increase the length of your penis at all. There’s lots of risks and potential complications. You’re better off working on your self-esteem in other ways. And, this brings us to another question about our dick
Does it matter how big my penis is?
The more sexual encounters you have, and the more penises that you get to experience, the more you realize that there’s really not much correlation between size and pleasure. Eh, size queens will definitely disagree with this one!
No matter what size you are, and no matter what size the other guy is, what matters is the sexual connection between you and not how big you are.
If you want to give your sexual partners and yourself some different experiences, try a sheath extension. There’s a number of different products out there, but essentially the sheath goes over the erect penis and adds length and girth. I don’t personally believe that many will try that.
Sounds as a very thick condom. We are in post-condom world now well and truly. Courtesy of very effective prevention of PrEP. What really matter is – can you get it up and hard? Many men suffer from variety of conditions that result in a lack of erection.
How do erections work?
An erection is the stiffening and rising of the penis, which occurs during sexual arousal. It can also happen in non-sexual situations. Spontaneous erections frequently occur during adolescence due to friction with clothing, a full bladder or large intestine, hormone fluctuations, nervousness, and undressing in a non-sexual situation. It’s also normal for erections to occur during sleep and upon waking.
The primary physiological mechanism that brings about erection is the autonomic dilation of arteries supplying blood to the penis. That allows more blood to fill the three spongy erectile tissue chambers in the penis. That is causing it to lengthen and stiffen. The now-engorged erectile tissue presses against and constricts the veins that carry blood away from the penis.
More blood enters than leaves the penis until an equilibrium is reached where an equal volume of blood flows into the dilated arteries and out of the constricted veins. A constant erectile size is achieved at this equilibrium. The scrotum will usually tighten during erection.
How does an ejaculation work?
Ejaculation is the ejecting of semen from the penis. It is usually accompanied by orgasm. A series of muscular contractions delivers semen, containing male gametes known as sperm cells or spermatozoa, from the penis. It’s usually the result of sexual stimulation, which may include prostate stimulation. Ejaculation may occur spontaneously during sleep. This is known as a nocturnal emission or wet dream.
Ejaculation has two phases – emission, and ejaculation proper. The emission phase of the ejaculatory reflex is under control of the sympathetic nervous system. The ejaculatory phase is under control of a spinal reflex at the level of the spinal nerves. A refractory period succeeds the ejaculation, and sexual stimulation precedes it.
Have we answered all that important questions about penis? Don’t be afraid to ask… OK, I can hear you. Here we go – the next one is
How can I make my semen taste better?
The science on this is a bit hazy. There is a general rule that what you put into your body will have an effect on what you produce. However, whether or not eating or drinking specific things can change the taste of your cum seems up for debate.
Sperm is naturally alkaline, so everyone’s cum has a slightly bitter taste. As many readers already know.
Everyone will tell you that drinking pineapple juice will supposedly make your cum taste sweeter. It’s a nice idea, and there’s no harm in downing some pineapple juice every day, but the impact on the flavour of your cum will be marginal, at best.
If having better tasting cum is a motivator for you, use that as your reason to eat antioxidants such as blueberries, and pumping up the amount of fresh vegetables in your diet.
Your body will thank you, and so will whoever is getting to taste your cum. As you can see – it is possible to have health and pleasure at the same time.
Surely, there are endlessly many more questions about penis size. However, I believe that the most common ones are covered by this article.
