Oh the penis, what a strange little appendage.

It is the source of so much joy and so much drama.

And there is so much to know about it.

Penis knowledge often feels neglected.

Are you curious? Let's discuss...

Redditor Helpful_Jellyfish_69 wanted the men out there to speak about and shed some light on anatomy. They asked:

"Men of Reddit, what should women know about the penis?"

I hate anatomy. They should have taught us more in high school. No?

Sensitive

"It’s overwhelmingly sensitive mid and post orgasm."

Stuck...

"It sometimes sticks to our thighs and we have to take a big step to unstick them."

"Women have to rearrange the furniture sometimes too."

ZTwilight

"I’m going to be watching every single man walk now and when they take a big step I’m gonna know that it's is stuck to their thighs."

Cartilage

"A lot of penises naturally harden in a certain direction. I’ve had multiple partners that love to mess around and pull on it when hard. It's a very odd and uncomfortable sensation. Best thing I can compare it to is pushing the cartilage in your nose in the wrong direction, but a lot more sensitive. Guys may not react a lot, but at least ask if stuff feels weird."

Fragile

"That thin bit of stretched skin connecting the shaft and head from below… it's easy to rip, so please be careful down there."

Well that last one is terrifying. Even I didn't know that.

"It floats in water."

"I mostly use the shower and don’t use the bathtub but a few years ago I did and found that it was floating lmao. It was hella funny when I discovered it."

Bad Mix

"It doesn't always get along with antidepressants. It's not you, the medication can cause lower libido or none at all, with or without various erectile dysfunctions, at random times for some, all the time for others."

SquizzleSE

"Penis-bearer with ADHD on Vyvanse (dexamphetamine) - correct. It skyrockets the libido but makes it harder to maintain/achieve an erection."

"Cialis/viagra counters that by enabling easier blood flow though so there's definitely solutions to most problems that are results of other medications unwanted side effects except perhaps anorgasmia somewhat commonly caused by antidepressants."

SquizzleSE

SURPRISE!!

"I've seen women say 'don't mess with me if your stick doesn't extend past your testicles when flaccid.' This is a misunderstanding of growers and show-ers. A show-er is obviously as big as he shows with a relative few cm difference. A grower can really surprise you, starting as a button and ending as a bratwurst."

“not ready”

"He has own mind. We can’t control the erection. He can increase in size up to 3 times from 'not ready' position. So when u see it’s 'not ready' and it looks small, just wait, there is still good chances."

Okkaaaaaey

"The 'multiplier' is different. Some are a shower, where they are big flaccid, and don't increase a lot when getting hard. Some are growers, but can be like 3 times as big erect as flaccid."

"Anxiety erections are a thing; I’m terrified of this exam tomorrow, I’m not horny."

Erections. It's always about the erections.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
