Male body

There's no such thing as a 'typical man' - everyone's body looks a bit different. But in this section we look at the things men have in common, like the changes that occur during puberty and the personal care that a healthy body needs.


Men's hygiene

When you kiss or have sex, its nice if you’re clean and smell nice. Brush your teeth, shower regularly and wear clean clothes.

What is Circumcision?

Men are born with a foreskin – a skin that covers and protects the penis head. When a boy or a man is circumcised, his foreskin is removed and the head of the penis is exposed.

All about penis sizes and shapes

Does size matter? Well, when it comes to penis, not really! It's all in your mind. Most often, men assume that the length of their penis is directly proportional to the pleasure of a female. But female pleasure does not solely depend on the length of the penis. There are a number of ways to pleasure a woman!

His anus

The anus is the opening of your bowel – where the stool comes out. There are little hairs around the anus, often spreading between the buttocks.

Puberty in boys

Most boys notice that their bodies start to change anywhere between the ages of 9 and 15. Some boys start and end puberty earlier than others.

What is ejaculation?

If you get really aroused, you have an orgasm or ‘come’. You then ejaculate - semen comes out of your penis.

What is a Penis?

The penis is able to get bigger and smaller because it’s made of erectile tissue – inside it’s like a sponge that can fill up with blood.
