Here Are 10 Interesting Things You Must Know About the Male Erection

Most women and men know little or nothing about the p*nis and erections. This vital information will be helpful to you.
Dailystar has posted 10 interesting things you need to know about the male erection many people do not know about.
According to IFLS, here are some little-known hard facts about what happens when schlongs stand to attention and some of them are truly shocking.
1. You can get an erection in the womb
It turns out guys don’t even need to be born to get hard. Since the genitals start to develop while the baby is still in the womb, it’s possible for a foetus to get an erection at just 10 weeks old.
2. There are three different types of erection
If you start watching something sexy or start thinking about your wildest fantasies, you’ll get a psychogenic erection.
But if you get hard at night time it’s dubbed a nocturnal erection.
Last up is a reflexogenic erection which is what happens when you get physical.
3. Men have multiple erections per day
The average man has a staggering 11 erections throughout the day – and three to five as he sleeps.
4. You can get an erection after death
This bizarre phenomenon, dubbed “angel lust”, is actually just a trick of gravity and not real life after death.
If a man dies in a vertical position, gravity will cause the blood to pool in the legs but as they get filled up some will be pushed into the penis, giving a guy a post-mortem erection.
5. This is the average penis size
Penises come in all shapes and sizes and there really isn’t such thing as “normal” but here’s the average todger size according to science.
The mean length of the erect penis is about 5.2 inches (13.2cm) in length and 4.6 inches (11.7cm) in circumference.
And at normal temperatures a non-erect penis usually measures 3.6 inches (9.1cm) from tip to base and 3.7 (9.3cm) inches in circumference.
Most men fall into the normal range, however some men suffer from a micropenis condition. This is defined as 2.5 inches or less when fully erect.
6. Penises respond to certain scents
Different smells can cause the penis to stand to attention.
A study found that the scent of black liquorice and doughnuts increased the blood flow to the penis by 32%, while doughnuts mixed with pumpkin pie spiked blood flow by 20%.
But for the biggest increase, lads should whiff the combo of lavender and pumpkin pie to rev up their penile blood flow by a whopping 40%.
7. Never-ending erections exist
Priapism is a disorder in which men have to endure consistent and painful erections to the point where sex isn’t even pleasurable.
Priapism is a medical emergency, meaning you should rush to the hospital if it happens, because if it isn’t treated within 24 hours you may damage your schlong for life.
A prolonged erection can permanently damage the penile tissues making it difficult to get hard in the future.
8. Penises don’t actually contain a bone
Most mammals have a baculum (penis bone) but humans don’t. Interestingly other primates like gorillas and chimpanzees do have one.
9. Your penis is shaped like a boomerang
This shocking discovery was made a French researcher who studied couples having sex in an MRI machine.
It turns out the penis is boomerang-shaped but you’d never know it because the “root” is hidden by the pelvis.
10. You can be a grower or a shower
According to a study, penises that are smaller when flaccid actually get longer when erect, compared to larger flaccid schlongs.
