Penis: What You Need To Know
Despite its deceptively simple appearance, the penis is as complex as any other part of the human body. Furthermore, because both men and women are familiar with the two functions of the penis, there is a tendency to believe that everyone knows everything there is to know about it.
However, there are always a few unanswered questions or some obscure piece of information that no one remembers but might be useful in a certain context. So, here’s a general description of the penis with the goal of giving you a complete picture of this organ.
The human penis is divided into two sections:
the shaft and the glans (also known as the head). The shaft is not a muscle, contrary to popular belief. It is composed of three tissue columns, one of which extends forward to form the glans. Corpus Spongiosus, which forms the underside of the penis and the glans, and Corpora Cavernosa, which are two tissue sections located next to each other on the upper side of the penis, are the three columns.
The shaft of the penis is covered in skin, and the glans supports the foreskin, a loosely attached fold of skin. In an area known as the frenum, the foreskin is attached to the underside of the penis.
Finally, the urethra passes through the penis from one end to the other. The urine produced in the bladder and the sperm produced in the testicles both pass through this canal.
The two Corpora Cavernosa are filled with blood to achieve an erection. Humans, unlike other mammals, lack an erectile bone and must rely on blood engorgement to achieve an erection. When sexual stimulation causes an erection, the arteries supplying blood to the penis dilate to increase blood flow.
Blood fills the sponge-like Corpora Cavernosa, causing the penis to stiffen. To keep the erection, the stiffer tissues compress the veins that carry blood away from the penis.
Male babies are born with a complete set of reproductive organs. These organs, however, are not fully developed until the kid reaches puberty. The pituitary gland begins secreting chemicals that cause the testicles to create testosterone when a person reaches puberty, which normally occurs between the ages of 10 and 14. Testosterone is the hormone that regulates all of a man’s physical and psychological characteristics.
Its presence guarantees that men have larger bones and more muscle mass. It is also responsible for the enlargement of the penis and testicles, the appearance of pubic hair, and the male voice taking on a deeper tone. At the end of puberty, around the age of 18, the penis stops developing.
However, there are a variety of environmental factors that might delay or hasten puberty’s onset or end. As a result, some men may experience penis growth after they reach the age of 18.
The idea that penis size is tied to the size of another body part is a prevalent urban myth that almost everyone has heard of. To determine the size, the most popular variations of this myth use the size of the hands, feet, nose, or total height.
In reality, there is no such connection. Although the same genes control the development of the penis in the embryo as the limbs, penile growth throughout puberty is solely controlled by testosterone and has nothing to do with the rest of the body.
Some males are born with disproportionately large size. This is an undeniable fact of existence, the causes of which are still unknown to science. As previously established, there is no link between penis and body size. Bat studies have revealed that the development of the sexual organs and the brain requires a lot of energy.
Finally, a word on workouts. The activities promoted by PenisHealth are designed to force the tissue columns to increase in length and girth. This is accomplished by applying pressure to the shaft and assisting the tissue’s cells in multiplying.
Obviously, the goal of these workouts is to expand the size of the erect penis by making the Corpora Cavernosa store more blood. Consult your doctor for your health challenges.
