We know what they look like, what they feel like, you may own one or have a personal relationship with someone who does but it doesn’t mean you know everything about penises. Here are 8 things you may not know about penises.
If we have your consent, come closer let’s put these amazing facts in you.
Shrinkage is real
If unused, your penis can shrink. You actually need to have erections to keep your penis in shape.
Without regular erections, penile tissue can become less elastic and shrink, making the penis 1-2 centimetres shorter.
There are two types of penises
We have the show-ers and the grow-ers. Show-er penises are those that are big when flaccid but when erect do not show any significant growth. Grow-er penises are the ones that gain a lot of length with an erection.
They are twice as long
Yes! Half of the entire length of a penis is actually inside the body. It is inside the pelvis attached to the pubic bone.
The underside of the penis is the most sensitive.
For many men, the underside of the head of the penis and its shaft is the most sensitive to sexual pleasure.
The penis can break
Though there’s no bone in your penis, vigorous sex can break your penis. A penile fracture is the rapture of the tissue that becomes erect when filled with blood. The moment your penis breaks, there will be a popping or cracking sound, intense pain and swelling and of course, you will lose your erection.
Death erections also called terminal erections can happen moments after death. Usually, men who died from hanging have been recorded to experience death erections. However, death from damage to a major blood vessel or poisoning can also cause it.
Your penis is someone’s home
The skin of your penis is home to a diverse number of bacteria. Studies show there are a total of 42 unique kinds of bacteria in the skin of a penis.
Semen is more than sperms
Semen is made up of 96% water, 2% sperm, fructose, vitamin C, sodium bicarbonate, various proteins and minerals like magnesium, potassium and zinc.
