One of the more popular medical websites recently revealed 5 little-known facts about the male organ it reckons people were afraid to ask. It makes for interesting reading – with facts that both men and women will find interesting – and surprising.
Fact 1: It has a mind of its own – how else do you explain that an erection is possible at inappropriate times? And try commanding it to do otherwise – chances are you will be unsuccessful. The explanation lies in the influence of the autonomic nervous system which is at the subconscious level. This also explains why stress is one of the main causes of a flaccid penis.
Fact 2: Grower or show_er – there is no consistent relationship between the size of the flaccid penis and its full erect length. You can’t assume that a big limp penis gets much bigger with an erection. Conversely,a penis that looks tiny could surprise with a big erection.
Fact 3: A boomerang shape – MRI scans confirm that the penis is shaped like a boomerang because it curves to attach to the pubic bone underneath the skin.
Fact 4: It is possible to break it – while the penis has no bones, it is possible to fracture it. When penile fracture occurs, you can hear an audible snap.
Fact 5: Most men are not circumcised – worldwide, it is estimated that only 30% of men have had circumcision, of which 70% had it for religious reasons.
