The first time I saw a man’s real life genitals I wondered: how does it grow so fast? No, I wasn’t a minor. I was just sheltered. The only thing I learned in sex education was that STD’s burn and that having a baby as a teenager will ruin your life.
Mami didn’t help matters. The first time I menstruated she lay me down like an invalid, showed me where she kept the maxi pads, and gave me a list of what not to do while on my period. The subject of sex – how you do it, when to do it, and the private parts involved – never came up.
So, you see, I believe it is my duty to uncloak the penis and reveal all of its mysteries. Here are five things you may not about his pickle.
Average Size: Under 6 Inches
Specifically 5.2 inches. An article in the British Journal of Urology International reviewed 20 different studies on penis size and found that most men are about 5.2 inches long when erect. It may not seem that big but it’s what most of of have!
9 Minutes to Orgasm
On average, a man can ejaculate in 9 minutes, at least that’s what a European study revealed. They surveyed 1,100 couples from 44 European countries. Each couple had sex twice a week for eight weeks and timed how long it took the man to cum. And that was usually about 9 minutes. So kudos to the guys who can last longer than 15! Apparently, it’s no easy feat.
Lasts Longer If Exercises
If you want your man to last more than 9 minutes, he needs to work out. A new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine discovered that men who exercise about 18 hours a week have more stamina during sex. So for his birthday you can get him a gym membership.
Tall Man, Long Penis
Although the size of a man’s hands has nothing to do with penis size, his height does. On average, the taller the guy, the longer he will be. But what about girth?!
Bald guys have higher libidos.
Wait, what? Yes! Men who are bald have more testosterone in their body, which causes hair loss and a stronger sex drive. Testosterone is also the chemical that controls the male libido. The more testosterone a man has, the more he wants to have sex. Point for the baldies.
So there you have it, ladies: penis facts revealed! Now go give your man and his pickle some love. He (and his average-sized friend) may just need it.
