Penis: top five facts

Penises come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes: straight, curved, long, thin, thick, circumcised, uncircumcised... But what's normal penis size? This and more in the first edition of our Top Five Facts series.
  1. Sizes around the world Let's talk about penis size. When soft, a penis is usually between 6 and 13 centimeters long. An erect one gets somewhere between 7 and 17 centimeters. Is this normal penis size? Compared to large penises, smaller ones often grow more in size when they become erect. The size of your penis will also depend on your ethnic background. Men of African descent have slightly longer and wider penises compared to European men, who have medium-sized penises. If you come from an Asian background, you are likely to have a slightly more narrower and shorter penis, the World Health Organization says.
  2. Like nose, like penis? So, can you really tell how big a man's penis is by looking at his nose? Or his feet? If you are curious about a man's normal penis size, it’s actually his hands you should sneak a peek at. The longer a man's ring finger compared to his index finger, the longer his penis is likely to be, South Korean researchers say. The more testosterone the man was exposed to when he was still just a baby growing in his mother’s womb, the longer his ring finger will be. But it’s not just the length of his ring finger it affects, but also the length of his penis.
  3. But... does size actually matter? So now you may be looking down at your fingers wondering if size really matters. Do I have normal penis size? It turns out that girth (the thickness of a penis) is actually more important to satisfy your partner because that's what stimulates large areas of the vagina. And penis size aside, women also find a stable relationship and their partner's other physical features, like hair, very important factors for a satisfying sex life!
  4. Erections When you are sexually aroused, your penis becomes hard and gets bigger – you have an erection. It's pretty common for a man to have spontaneous, unwanted erections. While they may be embarrassing, they are perfectly normal. This can also happen at night, usually three to five times every night!
  5. Sperm and ejaculation When you get really aroused, you can have an orgasm and ejaculate. This means that a sticky, whitish fluid comes out of your penis. This happens when you masturbate or have sex. But also in your sleep, which is called a 'wet dreams’, ‘night fall’ or ‘nocturnal emission’. Like masturbation, wet dreams are completely natural and harmless – except that you wake up feeling a bit sticky! The older you get, the more sperm you produce. So the first semen you ejaculate contains very little sperm. A couple of years later though, there'll be 900 million or more sperm per ejaculation.

So as you know there is no Formula for this!! You may want to make an impression by first being very smart, clean, hygienic, well dressed, ( not expensive, but neat and smart) and Most Importantly, a nice, sweet , interesting person, who respects women. Try and find out what the girl likes, ask her about herself.. Show interest in her life and dreams, share yours.. NEVER be a ""stalker""...chasing her everywhere, FB / wassap/ e-mail/ phone - terrible habits!! So Make Friends First and everything else, Later. Ok?

Not a lot of men want to hear that there are behavior choices which are the causes of ED. The reason they do not want to hear that behavior choices can lead to erectile dysfunction because reversing the issue of ED requires making changes in how they live. Many do not want to do this and such an attitude will not only make it tough to reverse the problem of erectile dysfunction. Not improving lifestyle choices can lead to serious illnesses over time. The common lifestyle issues which can cause erectile dysfunction include drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco and obesity. Basically, such unhealthy practices will have a huge negative effect on the human body. Among those effects would be the onset of erectile dysfunction.
