Penis Facts
Things You May Not Have Known

Men have the advantage of getting pretty familiar with their 'friend' as their genitals are right out in the open. Unlike women who need a mirror and a yoga position, the penis is a very accessible organ to men. You might not think so from looking, but the male and female sex organs actually have a lot in common. Did you know that in the womb, we all start out as female?

This is because we all start as the X chromosome. If another X is added we remain female, if a Y is added, our development changes to male and our female organs are transformed into male.

Penis Enlargement Terms

On the backside of a penis are the remnants of a man's 'vagina' when his 'male sex' was not yet determined and had female organs in early gestation. In addition, the highly sensitive spot on the back of a man's penis, where the foreskin attaches… was the female clitoris. Let's find out more about the beautiful penis-

The Corona

The ridge of flesh demarcating where the head of the penis and the shaft join.

The Frenum

Frenulum A thin strip of flesh on the underside of the penis that connects the shaft to the head.

The Foreskin

Prepuce A roll of skin which covers the head of the penis in uncircumcised men.

The Urethra

Meatus Opening at the tip of the penis to allow the passage of both urine and semen. The Shaft Area from the corona to the scrotum.

The Scrotum

A sac that hangs behind and below the penis, and contains the testes, the male sexual glands. The scrotum's primary function is to maintain the testes at approximately 93.2 degrees Fahrenheit (34 C), the temperature at which the testes most effectively produce sperm.

The Prostate

Produces a fluid that makes up the semen. The prostate gland also squeezes shut the urethra duct to the bladder, thus preventing urine from mixing with the semen.
