6 Incredible Things You Didn’t Know About Your Penis
1. Use It or Lose It
Well, it won’t just fall off, but the more erections you have, the better. You can actually get smaller from not getting hard enough.
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, Kohler says.
Don’t worry if you forget to make your dick hard. Your body has an automatic function to get hard. That could explain your raging morning wood.
2. Smoking Cigarettes Will Make Your Penis Smaller
Smoking can shorten your penis by as much as a centimeter. Erections are all about good blood flow, and lighting up calcifies blood vessels, stifling erectile circulation. So even if you don’t care all that much about your lungs or dying young, spare the lil guy.
3. Foreskin Could Save Your Life One Day
Doctors can now grow skin for burn victims using the foreskins of circumcised infants. One foreskin can produce 23,000 square meters, which would be enough to tarp every Major League infield with human flesh.
4. About 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it. In fact, more than 2.5 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today.
5. The Average Male Orgasm Lasts 6 Seconds
Women get 23 seconds on average. That means that if women really loved us, then they would make sure they give us 4 orgasms for every 1 we give them.
5. The Average Penis Size is 5.6 Inches
According to the Huffington Post, the average penis size for adult males is 5.6 inches. Does size really matter, though?
Let’s be honest, no one would deny a bigger package.
