Why do men get erections in the morning? When men are awake they release a hormone named noradrenaline into their body which prevents erections.  Noradrenaline is released less when you are in REM sleep, so you are more likely to have erections when you are asleep and in the morning when you wake up.

How does alcohol impact men during sex? It is the common assumption that alcohol provides people with Dutch courage and bravery which is often the case in social interactions. Alcohol is a depressant and has some negative side effects for men that can include lower levels of arousal. It can make erections and orgasms more difficult to achieve, sometimes giving people temporary erectile dysfunction. The McKinley Health Center at the University of Illinois say that it is most common in men who have a blood alcohol concentration above .08.

Is blue balls a real thing? Blue balls is also known as prostatic congestion, it often happens after a man has been in a state of arousal for a long period of time without the relief of ejaculation. It can cause pain within and around the testicles due to uneven blood flow which can trap blood in the genitals. His penis and testicles may appear to be enlarged during his experience with Blue Balls. Not everyone man experiences blue balls and some people consider blue balls a myth. To help with blue balls it is recommended that men regularly masturbate, eat healthy and go on walks. Ejaculation can almost immediately get rid of blue balls.

How do condoms impact sex? Condoms provide a thin layer of latex to cover an erect penis that is used prevent the transmission of sexual infections and pregnancy. Although the layer of latex is thin, condoms take away from some of the pleasurable sensations of sexual penetration. This means men may enjoy larger amounts of foreplay to make the experience as pleasurable as possible.

What happens to a man after he ejaculates? After a man has orgasmed a mixture of chemicals are released into their body including oxytocin, vasopressin and prolactin. Lower levels of prolactin dictate that the man is able to recover quicker. Higher levels of prolactin mean they will have to go through a recovery time before they are able to ejaculate again which will make them feel sleepy. Oxytocin and vasopressin are another two chemicals that make people sleepy. Oxytocin can also provide people with lower levels of stress which aids in deep relaxation.

Why does a man’s penis and testicles shrink when it’s cold? The human body is made to reserve heart and energy supplies. If a man is cold, the penis and testicles will raise themselves closer to the body in an effort to remain warm. Your body also directs more blood flow from external body parts like the fingers and toes to help with regular function of your organs. When the weather becomes warmer, a man’s body will readjust back to normal size due to increased blood flow.

If the hormones change enough the baby will turn into a boy and a penis develops, but if the hormones remain the same, it will stay a girl.  Under the penis deep under the skin remains a slender edge or crease, known as the gooch. The gooch runs from scrotum to rear-end, are leftovers of the combination of the vaginal lips. So at the very beginning everyone typically starts off as being a girl in the womb.

Around the 1900’s specialists began exploring different avenues regarding monkey-ball transplants. With a specific end goal to cure penile dysfunction and impotence, specialists started exploring different avenues regarding xenotransplantation: surgically transplanting testicles from goats, chimpanzees and primates into male people.

Unusual Things That Get Stuffed Up A Cock!

The urethral canal serves  a bodily purpose which is releasing urine from the bladder out of the body.  It is longer in men than in women and curiosity obviously got the cat when both sexes worked out that when objects are inserted into it it can cause orgasm and sexual joy.  Medical sounds used to unblock the urethra had an side effect or causing sexual stimulation.

This discovery caused the creation of sex toys that are made to stimulate the urethra.  Penis plugs, cock wands, cock stuffers and all manner of devices some made from metal, others from silicone all to allow urethral joy.  However, this also brought about a dangerous practice of placing other objects inside the urethra – screws, nails, knitting needles, toothpicks, tooth brushes, forks and all manner of paraphernalia.   As this cock stuffing gained in popularity some began to go to extremes with urethral dilation, widening the opening with all manner of things.

What The Doctor’s Found Stuffed In His Cock

In August of 2013 a 70 year old Australian man probably took the cake in the department of unusual things stuffed up a cock. He told doctors he had inserted the 10cm dining fork into his urethra almost 12 hours earlier in an attempt to achieve sexual gratification.  However the fork became lodged inside as he had pushed it so that the actual forks had passed his pee-hole.  The fork was  not visible to the human eye but X-rays revealed it and its position.  After much deliberation the doctors put the man under local anesthetic and removed it manually by dilating the pee hole.

The team of three doctors published the case in the The International Journal of Surgery in September of 2013 in an article titled “An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body”.

Armed with these facts we urge those that wish to try urethral play to purchase them from a reputable retailer or from a reputed brand like Hell’s Couture.  That way you can use these sex toys confident of your safety.

Some people that enjoy urethral play may experience a small amount of pain, especially at original insertion.  The is often described as

Pleasurable Pain

To experience a cold piece of steel slowly up your urethral channel can be joyous and as it warms up relaxing and comfortable. There are so many men’s sex toys out on the market which fulfill the same purpose like the urethral medical apparatus, called the “sound,”. The sound is a longer version of the penis plug which is used by doctors to reduce scarring in the urethra, typically due to past contamination, which prompts narrowing of the canal causing problems with urination. Using these sounds from the smallest to largest the create a progression of unbending smooth medical equipment that are inserted into the urethra to continuously dilate it allowing for the unblocking or the urethral channel.  Often multiple treatments are required and often men and women experience orgasms during this process.

It wasn’t long before these urethral sounds came onto the sex toy market and have increasingly become more and more popular as the years go on. Companies like Hell’s Couture in Australia import and export a vast array of these types of urethral toys across the world.

In a paper from the University of California, 17 patients were treated in hospitals with various items requiring removal from their urethra’s. Items included

“speaker wire, an AAA battery, clothing pegs, a plastic container, straws, a marble, and a cotton-tipped swab.”

Other things have included wires for attaching to a battery to convey low-voltage electro-stim for the urethra.   It seems there are some strange things that people stick up their urethras.

Now in the 21st century, we must say—whatever you need to do in your own time, its fine. However, to avoid self injury If you are going to insert objects into your urethra use quality medical grade surgical steel devices from reputable sellers. Anything less is just plain dangerous and you are playing Russian Roulette with your health (and penis). It is especially important to avoid inserting anything organic such as woods or plants (one guy inserted a rose stem down his urethra). It is difficult to ensure that the company you are dealing with is a reputable supplier but unfortunately the only way you will know is when you obtain the items you have ordered and inspected them.
