The penis as well as the female intimate organs always cause interest. No one can have both, at least in their entirety, and know what they are. The virile member, above all, generates many questions, because there is a belief that it depends a lot on the sexuality of the partner, not only of the man.
Sometimes we wonder whether size matters, why erectile dysfunction occurs, whether the penis thinks for itself, how much pressure it can withstand, or whether it is possible to hurt it.
To clear up some of these doubts, this article present you some characteristics of the penis that you surely didn’t know and that will surprise you. Take a look!
Characteristics of Penis
1: How long has it existed?
The oldest known species to have a penis-like organ is the hard-shelled sea creature called Colymbosathon ecplecticos. Its name comes from the Greek and etymologically means “the amazing swimmer with a large penis”.
2: There are two types of penises
Yes, just as you hear it, apart from the shape, there are two kinds of penises, the ones that expand and grow when they reach erection; these are called crescent, 79% of men have this type. 21% of guys have what is known as the exhibitionist penis, meaning they barely grow when they reach erection, the rest of the time, what you see or feel is what you get.
3: Really? Two minutes?
Scientific studies carried out by a group of German researchers have pointed out that the average length of intercourse is two minutes. Yes, I know you’ve probably felt like penetration is longer, but in reality, continuously, it’s only this long, as the penis can’t tolerate more minutes.
4: Short orgasms
The penis orgasms for only 6 seconds, while a woman orgasms for 23, almost 4 times longer. During climax, a man’s heart can reach up to 180 beats per minute. The erection itself lasts between 30 and 40 minutes.
5: A big prostate equals problems
A large prostate gland can cause erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. If your guy suffers from either of these problems, this may be the cause. Remember, taking care of the prostate is vital, as prostate cancer is one of the biggest killers of men.
6: The penis really does think for itself.
Science has shown that this statement may be true. Having erections in inauspicious situations, which cause more discomfort than satisfaction, is due to the fact that it is an organ that functions in a certain way, independently.
The penis responds to the sympathetic nervous system which is not always under conscious control. And just as erections can arise unintentionally, so can one be diminished, for example with cold water. Ejaculation is the same, not really a sensation you can’t stop.
7: Smoking is lousy for the penis
Erections depend 100% on blood flow to the area, a recent study in the British Journal of Urology points out that smoking calcifies blood vessels and hinders erectile circulation, meaning erections are smaller by at least a centimetre.
8: Handsome man’s penis work’s better
According to a group of scientists, the penis of a man with better attractiveness, yes, more handsome, works better. At least in fertilisation, because they have stronger sperm, one of better quality.
9: What is an active penis?
If you’ve ever thought that one of your partners was actually very active, this fact is sure to blow your mind. The penis that is believed to have engaged in the most intercourse is that of the King of Fatefehi of Tonga, who reportedly took the virginity of more than 37,800 women between 1770 and 1784, roughly seven a day.
10: So, size does it matter?
The length of an erect penis is 13.12 centimetres, the length of a flaccid penis is 9.16 cm. Size matters when it comes to fertilisation, because the larger a penis is, the more semen is released. Therefore, when it is practised for reproductive purposes, it does matter. When it comes to intimate pleasure, 6 cm is enough to make it work and give the woman pleasure she desires.
