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.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
