A guide to the Penis, Average Dick Size, Hard Ons, Foreskin, the Bell End and Frenulum.
This piece is taken from Sex Explained: A Real and Relevant Guide to Sex, Relationships and You.
Old Chap, Old Feller, Meat and Two Veg, John Thomas, Anthony are just some of the amusing names that men give to their penises. Here are a few facts below and actual pictures of erections which are purely for educational purposes and are properly legitimate… and not mine. Ok?
You probably don’t need me to tell you that penises have two main functions: peeing and cumming. A penis needs to be hard in order to cum and it is very very difficult to pee when the penis is really hard.
Erections can happen when a male is feeling really turned on (sexy) but can also happen at other times. In the morning when testosterone is at a high level (also known as morning glory: this has cock all to do with needing to pee, it’s just a coincidence ok?), or on a bus, or in a classroom, or at work. This can be embarrassing but there are ways that they can be hidden (hands in pockets, sitting down, pulling top down or even wearing two pairs of pants if it happens a lot).
Sometimes erections don’t happen when we really want them too. Even when males are feeling really turned on and wanting sex sometimes they can get the flop. This can happen for medical reasons: but usually it’s a temporary problem that is often caused by not being relaxed. This can be because of stress generally, worries about ‘performance’ (ironically worrying about staying hard can make it harder to stay hard), anxiety about being seen naked or about safer sex. Any kind of tension or anxiety can make an erection go away.
It’s also really important to remember that guys aren’t machines. It’s really important for guys to spend time getting turned on too (kissing, stroking, etc). In porn you only see guys with erections because if they lose their erection the director shouts ‘cut’, so please don’t compare yourself.
I’ve made a video about penis size which you can see here. Basically most penises are about the same size (around 5.5 inches) when erect but vary a lot more when they are soft. Guys who have a small looking penis when soft usually get a lot bigger when they get hard (grow-ers) and usually bigger looking soft penises don’t get much bigger, just harder (show-ers).
Penis size has nothing to do with how good sex can feel and there’s not a lot you can do about increasing penis size anyway. However, check the video out. There are a couple of cheats that can make guys feel a bit more confident about their penis size.
If foreskin doesn’t roll back easily then it could get damaged during sexual intercourse. If it is tight you can try some self-stretching exercises from NormUK. Try stretching the foreskin forward and then backwards as far as it will go, hold it for a few seconds and then let go and repeat. It might help to do this in the bath or shower as the warm water will help to stretch the skin. Little by little over a few weeks the hole (prepuce) will get bigger and so the foreskin should slide over the glans more easily.
Only do this if it is comfortable and be careful that it doesn’t get stuck (try and move it back straight away or go to a doctor). If in any doubt see your doctor, who may prescribe a steriod cream to loosen it or recommend circumcision: removal of the foreskin.
If you have foreskin it is important to clean under it regularly to stop dick cheese (also known as smegma) building up.
The glans and frenulum are very sensitive and so are protected by foreskin. Some guys are circumcised (a surgical procedure where part of the foreskin is removed) which means that over time their glans might become less sensitive.
Spots (or papules) are very common but unusual lumps and bumps should be checked out in case it’s a STI.
