We at Room Privée borrowed some very insightful facts about the penis from the NHS in the UK. Something everyone must know 😊
1. You can break your penis
If the penis is violently twisted when erect, it can break. There are no bones in the penis, but the tubes that fill with blood during an erection can burst. Reported cases of penile fracture are rare, but it's thought that some men are too embarrassed to report it to their doctor. Damage during sex, where their partner is on top, is responsible for about one-third of all cases.
2. Men have several night-time erections
On average, a healthy man has 3 to 5 erections during a full night's sleep, with each erection lasting 25 to 35 minutes.
3. Penis length is not linked to foot size
The idea that the size of a penis is in proportion to the shoe size is a myth, according to a study published in the British Journal of Urology International. Researchers at University College London measured the penises of 104 men, and found that the average penis length in this group was 13cm when soft and gently stretched, and the average British shoe size was 9, with no link between shoe size and penis length.
4. Small penises make big erections
Shorter penises increase more in length than longer ones when they become erect. Research based on the penis measurements of 2,770 men found that shorter penises increased by 86% when erect, nearly twice that of longer penises (47%).
5. The penis is not a muscle
Contrary to popular belief, the so-called love muscle does not contain any muscles. That's why you cannot move it very much when it's erect. The penis is a kind of sponge that fills with blood when a man is sexually excited. Blood builds up inside 2 cylinder-shaped chambers, causing the penis to swell and stiffen.
So... now you know!
