6 things you didn’t know about your dong

At Hisential Men’s Health Clinic, we believe that knowledge is power, especially when it comes to understanding your own body. Here are seven surprising facts about your body downstairs that you might not be aware of.

No. 1: The head and shaft is the most sensitive part

The penis is a hub of sensitivity, with various zones responding differently to stimulation. A study reported in the British Journal of Urology International revealed that the underside of the glans (head) and the shaft emerged as the most sensitive for a majority of the participants. Other areas like the scrotum, anus, nipples, and neck also played a role in sexual arousal, showcasing the diverse nature of male pleasure.

No. 2: Morning Wood’s are Healthy

Waking up with a hard on, often referred to as “morning wood,” is a sign of good health. It’s an indication that your blood circulation is in top shape and that your testosterone levels are at their peak in the morning.

No. 3: Sensitivity Decreases with Age

As with many aspects of our bodies, the penis isn’t immune to the effects of time. Research indicates a gradual decline in penile sensitivity as men age. From the age of 25 onwards, this sensitivity begins to wane, with the most noticeable drop occurring between 65 and 75. However, it’s worth noting that many men might not consciously recognize this decline

No. 4: Medications Can Interfere with your Hard Ons

Certain medications, including antidepressants, antihistamines, and high blood pressure drugs, can affect your ability to achieve or maintain an erection. Always consult with a healthcare professional if you suspect your medication is affecting your sexual health.

No. 5: An Erection is like a Reflex

Contrary to some beliefs, you can’t will an erection into existence. It’s more of a reflexive response to arousing stimuli, be it touch, sight, or sound. Just as your leg involuntarily jerks in response to a tap, your penis reacts to arousal cues. This reflex is governed by the parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS), which springs into action, signalingyou to prepare for action.

No. 6: You could be a ‘Grower’ or a ‘Show-er’

In a recent study containing 80 participants, researchers found that increases from flaccid to erect lengths ranged widely from less than a quarter-inch to 3.5 inches longer.

The significance is considerable.
