Sometimes there are questions that are simply too embarrassing to ask. This is especially true when it comes to questions about your favorite body part — your penis. Sure, you may have friends you share some pretty personal stuff with, put sometimes even they can’t be of help. Following are five penis questions you may be too embarrassed to ask, but still were curious about anyway.
Question #1 – Is it Really Possible to Break Your Penis? And, How Do I Know if Mine is Broken?
Although the penis does not have a boney structure, it is still possible to break it. This usually happens in younger men, but most often occurs when the penis is thrust too hard into their partner’s pelvic bone or some other hard surface. When this happens, the tunica albuginea can become torn (broken) from the stress.
Trust me, you’ll know if you’ve broken your penis. Usually, there is a loud pop sound and you’ll lose your erection immediately. The penis will bruise, due to blood leaking into the surrounding tissue from the erectile tissue. A penis break is extremely painful, and you should seek medical care IMMEDIATELY, because of potential complications.
Question #2 – At What Age Does the Penis Stop Growing Naturally?
If you’ve perused the forums here on PEGym.com, you’ll know that there really is no age limit for penis growth. However, your penis will stop growing naturally when you finish puberty. Although this age varies from male to male, most men’s penises are pretty close to their full natural size by the time they’re 16.
Question #3 – There’s a Burning Sensation in My Penis When I Pee, is That Bad?
Well, it’s definitely not good if your penis burns when you urinate. This sensation could be caused by either a urinary tract infection or an STD. Additional symptoms you should watch for are: feeling like you need to pee, but little comes out; blood in your urine; a strong odor when you pee; and pain above your pubic bone. If you have one or more of these symptoms, please see your physician. Even a urinary tract infection can lead to future, serious health complications.
Question #4 – Are Circumcised Penises More Sensitive than Uncircumcised Penises?
No, circumcised penises are not more sensitive then their uncircumcised counterparts. Other than the removal of the foreskin, there is absolutely no difference between the two penises.
Question #5 – How Many Erections a Day is Normal?
The average number of erections a man has each day is dependent on a variety of factors. These include: your age, stress level, general health, medications you’re taking, and how stimulated you are. It’s normal for the number to range from zero erections to dozens, in just one day. In the evening, while asleep, a healthy man typically experiences between three and six erections, with some lasting more than 30 minutes.
