Most men rate the underside of the shaft or the head of the penis to be the most sensitive area for sexual pleasure. Which for a matter of fact, is true. So ladies, now you know exactly where to go the next time you're both ready to get down and dirty. 

A penis can still break

Despite not having a muscle or a bone, men can break their penis during sex. If there is too much pressure on the penis during intercourse, the blood vessels inside can rupture which will lead to swelling, just like it does on our hands or feet. Immediate medical aid is recommended in such a case. 

Foot/palm size is NOT equal to the size of the penis

According to popular belief, men with a bigger foot size or big palms are most likely to have a bigger package. There is no scientific proof for this statement yet.

Sleep erections? Yes, It's a thing!

It is known that on an average, a man can have up to 5 erections in one night. Did you know this? In fact, it's common for a man in good health to wake up with an erection... No big deal about it! 

Most men don't have control over when they will ejaculate

This is mostly because the signal to ejaculate does not come from the brain. It comes from the spinal ejaculation generator. This region is in the spinal cord and coordinates the ejaculation. However, your brain can still delay the process by say, thinking about something non-sexual. 

Penis shrinkage

A man's penis can shrink up to 1 centimetre due to various external factors. Smoking plays a big role in causing the penis to shrink. It happens due to calcified blood vessels that reduce the erectile circulation of blood. Apart from this, the penile tissue becomes less elastic if a guy does not get enough erections. Simply put, not using the penis enough can cause it to shrink over time.
