    saw this article the other day~ may not be so "fresh" for some of you, but still, this is the text icon_wink.gif:




    Sex is something most people are familiar with, but there are many things that remain unknown. With myths and gossip constantly surrounding sex and different sexual activities, it can be difficult to sort out the truth from the bunk. Perhaps one of the most misunderstood things about sex is the penis – due to the numerous jokes gossip about it, there’s a lot of things that women just don’t know about it – but should.


    The Penis CAN Break



    Believe it or not, even though the penis isn’t a bone, it can break. A “break” is most often called a “penile fracture” and can happen during rough sex or even vigorous masturbation. A penile fracture happens when the tough, fibrous tissue around the penis experiences sudden trauma, and a cracking sound is often heard – along with immediately losing the erection and a large bruise appearing very quickly. This condition requires immediate medical treatment.



    Erections Can Be Random




    Most of the time, an erection happens when the penis is either physically stimulated or a man becomes psychologically aroused. However, erections can be completely random and can happen when a man is being neither physically or psychologically stimulated sexually. As embarrassing as it is, a man can have an erection at the most inopportune times, such as at a funeral. The next time your man pops a boner, it may not be because the hot girl you thought he was looking at – it might be “just because!”



    The Average Penis Size Is Actually Quite Small




    Men are obsessed with their penis size – they usually think that theirs is too small, or much smaller than the general populations. The truth is, the average size is just 5-6″ in length! While many men may think that they can’t please a woman with a 5″ penis, the reality is that they can – and the majority of men do! Large penises are actually fairly rare, and size really isn’t that big a deal to a woman. The man who holds the record for the largest penis (over 13″) lives at home with his mother – so really, size doesn’t matter.





    The Way It Looks Is Not Genetic




    A man may think that he passes on the size of his penis and the way it looks to his sons, but the way it looks and even how long or wide it is has nothing to do with the way his father’s looks. A man’s penis is formed within the womb, when the body begins turning an androgynous fetus into either a boy or girl. Similarly, the way a woman’s vagina looks has nothing to do with the way her mother’s looked either.




    Most Men Do Not Need Large Sized Condoms




    Because the average penis size is about 5 to 6 inches, most men do not need large or “Magnum” sized condoms. However, many men buy large condoms because they either want to think they have a bigger one or they want their partner to believe that they do because they brought extra large condoms to bed. The truth is, the far majority of men can fit just fine in a regular sized condom and if they do, they should use it. Using a condom that is too large can cause it to slip off, increasing the risk of unwanted pregnancy or the transmission of STD’s.





    He’s Not Lying About “Blue Balls”





    Most women think that the excuse men give about having “blue balls” if she doesn’t have sex with him is false – he’s just trying to get a piece, right? Wrong. However, during foreplay and increased arousal, the prostate gland and the testicles become swollen with fluid. This causes anywhere from mild discomfort to acute pain. The release of these fluids during an orgasm will relieve the discomfort. So should you sleep with him just because he has blue balls? Of course not – unless you want to. Blue balls can also be relieved with an aspirin or just good old fashioned masturbation.





    You Cannot Tell The Size Of A Man’s Penis By His Shoe – Or Hand – Size





    Many men and women believe that if a man has large feet or large hands with long fingers, that he will also have a very large or long penis. This is not true! However, you can predict the length of a man’s penis by looking at how tall he is. Men who are taller tend to have larger penises. Also, a study in 1999 proved that gay men actually have longer, thicker members than heterosexual men!





    “Liquor Dick” Exists





    If a man drinks too much, he may have trouble having an erection later that night. The same goes for illicit drug use. The more inebriated a man is, the more trouble he will have achieving an erection. If you’re planning a big date that you want to end in the bedroom with some really hot and wild sex, keep the drinks at a minimum.





    Erect Penis Size Is Not Indicated By How Big It Is When It Is Not Erect





    If a man has a small penis when he is not erect, many men and women think that this is an indicator that it won’t get a lot bigger when it becomes erect. Similarly, people also believe that if a man has a large member when it is flaccid that he will have a much larger penis when it is erect. The truth is, how large or small a man’s penis is when it is soft has absolutely no correlation on how big it will be when he has an erection. The average length of a flaccid one is about 3 inches, but some of these penises grow to be much larger when a man becomes sexually aroused. On the other hand, a member that is very large when it is flaccid may only gain a few centimeters when it becomes erect.





    Most Men Are Uncircumcised (But Not In The U.S.)





    Circumcision is still routinely practiced in the United States, where about 60% of boys are circumcised at birth due to religious and personal reasons. However, most men in the world remain uncircumcised - in fact, the rate of circumcision around the world is only 10-15%. If you meet a really hot foreign guy and end up in bed together, don’t be surprised if he’s uncut. American women think that being circumcised is the norm (and may even be a little unnerved about having sex with a man who hasn’t been circumcised), but in reality, the majority of men around the world haven’t been snipped or clipped.

    10 Things You Didn’t Know About Penises

    There's nothing I don't know about penises. icon_cool.gif And if anybody says something snarky like "Except how to please one" I'm gonna smack him! Some comments on the 10 things in the article:

    I'm not sure about the genetic relationship being invalid. My Dad had a big dick, and I have a big dick, and dick size has been shown to follow geographic patterns, and so likely along racial & ethnic lines, as well, which are genetic.

    I'm glad an article finally acknowledges the genuine existence of the blue balls condition, and the correct reason (fluid build-up & congestion during a period of extended sexual arousal). But I dispute whether masturbation will relieve the discomfort once you've got it, at least immediately. It didn't help me, I assume because distention soreness can linger even after the source has been removed. It usually took me about 12 hours, assisted by several JO sessions, to finally relieve the last of the ache.

    I've always worn a large condom. First, I was that big (before age and my cancer treatment took some size off me). Second, I like a little movement inside the condom. A really snug one takes away a lot of the sensation, and so I slightly lube the inside, too. And began to use the "light bulb-shaped" ones when they became available, with a tight base but a loose upper half, allowing motion inside the condom. They feel almost bareback.

    I thought the penis "fracture" was due to a rupture of one of the blood chambers in the penis responsible for an erection (corpus cavernosum - sounds like a spell Hermione Granger would say with a wave of her wand). The article says it's when "the tough, fibrous tissue around the penis experiences sudden trauma", but the corpus carvernosum (literally a cavelike body) is inside the penis, and is more typically at risk of bursting from severe bending during an erection, since having a hammer slammed on your dick during sex is a much less common event.

    The penis fracture was a bit unnerving thinking about it just made me wince but all but the last I didn't know thought being cut was the norm

    My straight friend from high school called me in a panic one night: "My dick is broken!!''
    icon_eek.gif

    Seems he and his girl were doing it reverse cowgirl style {she on top, facing away} and while she was banging away, riding his shaft like a pogo-stick, it popped out and the next down-stroke was 'off the mark', if you will.....bingo!
    Instant penile fracture!

    Since she was just a twat, she left him to suffer in pain. I took him to the ER that night about 2AM.

    Imagine having to explain to the Doctors & nurses how it happened! icon_redface.gif


    PS: before I took him to ER, I did get to see a LOT of him I never saw before!
    icon_wink.gif
    PPS: it still has a 'bend' in it, he says.

    Anyone who has ever met anyone who promised 7 inches and showed up with 4 knows that gay men either have never worked in construction or just don't know anything about measuring.

    This article is full of lies! My extensive internet research has shown me that that the average male penis size is 8-8.5" long and 5-6" around. For the 5-6" figure to be true, I either stumbled upon a group of men who won the genetic lottery, or was dealing with a bunch of liars. Knowing what I know about the internet, I will assume that the men I've talked to were being completely honest. I mean who lies on the internet?! Really?!!!icon_rolleyes.gif

    1st one just sounds painful.... note to self, dont jerk off to hard.

    So what size pleases a gay guy then? ;)

    That's typical. When one of the corpus cavernosum is damaged (the erectile structures inside the penis) that part can't erect as well as the undamaged part. Hence, the erect dick becomes asymmetrical, and curves, sometimes quite dramatically, like a sickle. So severe that some men can't perform penetration sex, whether of a vagina or an anus. Your hardon is brittle, guys, guard it carefully!

    The article forgot to mention that the gay penis is at least 8 inches in length when measured with a special retractable tape measure (see Manhunt, Bigmuscle, etc.).

    As a guy that works for drug testing for Family Court, I can attest to the "The Average Penis Size Is Actually Quite Small" and "Most Men Are Uncircumcised" statements.
    Not a lot of people I drug test are big (or seem that way) and a lot of them are uncircumcised (the ones I come across with at least...)
    Also, somewhat related fact, most men I drug test shave their pubes completely. Many trim. Heck, I even had one that shaped it like a "landing strip."

    Maybe I should keep statistical data so that I can keep track of all the dicks I see...

    Yeah, I had to do that job when I worked in Toxicology for a while. I hated having to look over the shoulder of a guy when he pees in a plastic cup. But remember, they are not so comfortable with you there either. Any stress like that would tend to reduce the size. He is not going to be erect during the test, unless he is some how excited by showing off.
