The Penis Files! / by Dr. Natalia P Zhikhareva

Welcome to the Penis Files!  A file created just for you in hopes of informing and enlightening!  So without further adieu, I present you with, …drum-roll…The Penis!

No Bones About It!

Now we all know, and occasionally use, the term “boner.”  But how many of us actually realize that it is a misnomer?  Contrary to the popular belief, there are no bones, not even an abundance of muscular tissue, inside the penis. 

Instead, the penis is made up of three spongy chambers of erectile tissue.  When a man gets sexually aroused, the nervous system pumps extra blood – eight to ten times the normal volume – into the spongy chambers.  This in turn, expand, compressing the walls of the veins that normally carry blood away from the penis and what do you have?  That’s right, a throbbing erection, caused by the pressure of the blood trapped inside.

Which Way Does It Point?

Did you know that a man may be unconsciously influencing the angle of his erection given the angle he places his penis in his underwear?  A guy’s daily undies routine, pointing his penis up, down, or off to the side, will eventually affect the aroused organ’s tendency to go that way on its own!

Ohh That Foreskin We Snip At Birth!

Sadly, some men don't know that the foreskin contains a richer variety and greater concentration of specialized sensory nerve receptors, called Meissner’s corpuscles, than any other part of the penis! This makes the foreskin the most erogenous area of the entire organ!  Unfortunately, given the frequency of circumcision, most men are clueless about their long-lost foreskins.

Women Are Not The Only Ones With One Breast Smaller Than The Other!

OK, so this is more about testicles than male breasts, but did you know that the percentage of men in which the left testicle hangs lower than the right is approximately 85%? 

Who Needs a Multivitamin?

According to scientific research, the nutritional value of a tablespoon of semen is equal to that of two pieces of New York steak, ten eggs, six oranges, and two lemons – combined.  Now that's a nutritional boost! The flavor of male ejaculate varies from person to person, and is highly influenced by the following factors:

o   BITTER: cigarette or marijuana intake, coffee, alcohol.  It can also be bitter due to urinary or prostate infections.

o   SHARP: red meats, asparagus, broccoli, spinach, dairy products, chocolate, garlic, greasy foods.

o   MILD: vegetarian, celery, fruit, parsley, spearmint, peppermint.

o   SWEET: diabetic or borderline diabetic; naturally fermented beverages.

The Male G - Spot!

Oh women, thinking we are the only ones with the magical G-Spot!  Men have been blessed with it too!  The perineum, is the hairless quarter-sized area below the scrotum and above the anus bordered on the sides of the thighs. 

Although this is not technically a part of the penis, it is widely regarded to be a sensitive erogenous zone, and sometimes referred to the male G-spot.  Massaging the area (commonly referred to as an “external prostate massage”) during sex play or intercourse, can intensify and heighten male orgasmic response!
