15 Penis Facts Urologists Want You To Know

    Straight from the mouths of people who know penises best.

    If you have a penis, then chances are you've had some ~questions~ about it from time to time.

    1. If you're uncircumcised, then you're going to have to put a little more effort into creating a ~hygienic environment~.

    2. Some STIs might show up with symptoms, but many of them do not — so protect yourself and get tested

    3. Masturbating is good for you, so go for it, you wanker.

    4. But also remember: moderation is key, even when it comes to masturbation.

    5. You can actually fracture the penis, but probably not in the way you think.

    6. And FYI: You also shouldn't try to get rid of an erection by hitting your penis on anything or with anything.

    7. In addition to ED, a fractured penis can also cause something called Peyronie's disease.

    8. ED can happen for lots of reasons, including poor heart health and diabetes.

    9. But one of the biggest reasons for ED is simply stressing too damn much.

    10. Porn and other media have completely distorted what the average penis actually looks like.

    11. Trying to make your penis longer is a losing battle.

    12. And trying to make your penis ~stronger~ might only make it weaker.

    13. Taking testosterone can also backfire.

    14. And all those penis pills you might find at the gas station or grocery store are probably bunk, too.

    15. Finally, the way your penis works will gradually change as you get older.

    And on that note, hooray for healthy penises!
