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.

"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."

I hated science classes.

As soon as I could I ran.

But it follows me.

Because science can be downright disturbing.
