The penis is the male sex organ, reaching its full size during puberty. In addition to its sexual function, the penis acts as a conduit for urine to leave the body.
While the penis seemed to be one of the most interesting part of the male's body, there are quite a number of things we still don't know about this little guy.
Let's check them out
1. Use it or lose it.
You need to have erections regularly to keep your penis in shape. "It has to be essentially exercised.
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.
If a guy is physically able to get erect, but never has erections during the day -- maybe he finds himself in very un-erotic circumstances for a long time -- he needn't worry. The brain has an automatic penis maintenance function built in.
If a guy doesn't do anything to maintain normal erections, they will get shortening of the penis,". Without regular erections, penile tissue can become less elastic and shrink, making the penis 1-2 centimeters shorter.
2. Your penis may be a grower or a show-er
A penis that doesn't gain much length with an erection has become known as a "show-er," and a penis that gains a lot is said to be a "grower." More inform
All penises get bigger when they’re erect but there is some evidence of “showers” and “growers.”
“Showers” are people whose penises are the same length when they’re soft (flaccid) or hard (erect).
“Growers” are people whose penises get significantly longer and sometimes wider when they’re erect.
3. Sensitivity declines with age
The nerves in your penis get less sensitive as you age. This can lead to trouble with arousal and having an orgasm. As testosterone levels drop, erectile dysfunction becomes more likely. You may lose rigidity, but not necessarily your ability to have intercourse.
4. Vibrators work on penis too
The first thing to know about sex toys for men is that, yes, they exist. A lot of people are surprised that there can be products for men,” People often think vibrators, for instance, are very gendered and designed for women, but the reality is that our bodies are all pretty similar. We all have nerve endings that respond to vibration, or touch, or stimulation.”
5. The penis is a habitat.
The skin of your penis is home to a diverse community of bacteria.
There are 42 unique kinds of bacteria inhabiting the skin of the penis.
But uncircumcised and circumcised penises do not have the same variety and abundance of bacteria.
