I am sure you have some questions about your penis that might be too awkward for you to ask. After all the penis is a sexual organ and in Nigeria, sexuality is not openly discussed in public.
Here are five questions about the penis that you may want to know the answer to but might be too shy to ask about:
#1 – Can The Penis Break?
Even though the penis contains no bone, you can still break your penis. Basically if you are thrusting your erect penis too hard into your woman’s vagina and it hits her pelvic bone or any other hard body part it can break the penile tissue (tunica albuginea). Any form of stress can tear the penile tissues.
When you break your penis, you would immediately know it. This is because you would hear an audible pop sound and your erect penis would become flaccid (soft) instantly. Then you are going to see a bruise at the area where the penis broke because blood would start leaking into the surrounding tissue from the erectile chamber tissues.
A break in the penis is very painful. If it happens to you go to a hospital QUICKLY to prevent any possible complications that could occur.
#2 – Can The Penis Still Grow After Puberty?
During puberty you penis grows naturally but after puberty (by the age of 18 years) it stops growing naturally.
However you can still induce penis growth by the use of penis exercises, penile extenders or water-assisted penis pumps. With these tested and tried methods of penis enlargement there is no age limit for penis growth.
#3 – Is It Bad If I Feel A Burning Sensation When I Urinate?
Yes… this is a bad thing! It is a symptom of either a sexual transmitted disease (STD) or a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Once you begin experiencing pain or a burning sensation when you are urinating, you need to rush to see a doctor.
Other warning signs that you should be on the lookout for are:
- The constant urge to urinate but when you go to the toilet, you release very little urine
- Urine that looks reddish i.e. blood in your urine
- A strong odour when you urinate
- Pain around your pelvis and pubic area
If you notice any of these symptoms, please quickly go and see a doctor. Even though urinary tract infection and almost all sexual transmitted diseases (STDs) are easy to treat, if you ignore them it can cause serious health complications in future.
#4 – Is An Uncircumcised Penis Less Sensitive than A Circumcised Penis?
Whether a penis is circumcised or uncircumcised – there is no difference when it comes to sensitivity.
The only difference is that circumcised penises have already had their foreskin removed either for religious reasons or for medical reasons (a circumcised penis abhors fewer bacteria than an uncircumcised one).
#5 – How Many Times Does The Penis Get Erect In A Day?
The number of times that men get an erection depends on different factors such as: stress level, age, medications that you are using, general health and sex drive. So, the number of times you can get erect ranges from zero to as much as 20 erections in a day.
When you are sleeping at night, you can experience as much as 6 erections and some of the erections can last more than 25 minutes.
Engaging in penis exercises regularly can give you stronger erections as well as a larger penis. In fact you can add as much as 3 inches in penile length and girth after 4 – 7 months of dedicated penis exercising.
