Through childhood we don't talk about the penis, until in high school when we are told about its basic functionality. This leaves erectile dysfunction, dribbling and premature ejaculation in the dark. Do some research, meet a doctor if you feel abnormal in that department, discuss your problems with people and take appropriate action rather than shying away.
Let’s take a poll. Who knows more about the penis, men or women? With no evidence at all, I will go out on a limb here and say women simply because men know so little about their reproductive system.
Why is that the case? Think about this. If your childhood was anything like mine, you weren’t allowed to say “penis” at the dinner table, touching it was discouraged and any questions about it were usually met with a complicated and confusing explanation that typically started by my father saying to my mother. “You handle this one.”
Since Dad removed himself from the discussion at an early stage, it was up to Mom to handle the details. No wonder the male teenage years are so confusing. How do you talk to Mom about erections, why we get them and what to do with them? And masturbation? Forget about that topic. It is hidden, shamed and never discussed. No wonder teenage boys are so confused.
Frankly, the learning process doesn’t really improve as we get older. In high school, you’re not taught about the muscles that control the penis or how to care for them. College years are typically spent trying to operate the equipment, and by the time you are middle aged, most men have never even been to an urologist. Women are taught to listen to their bodies and spend a lot of time talking to each other about sexual health issues. Not only do men not listen as we are often accused of, but we also don’t talk about our bodies.
The fact is as a society we don’t talk enough about the male reproductive system. You can’t even say “penis” on TV! Seriously? This needs to change. We should be saying penis on TV a lot.
So, it should come as no surprise that men know virtually nothing about their penis and the complicated pelvic muscle system that controls it. Men are truly in the dark when it comes to “maintaining their manhood.” So, the real question is, how are you expected to take care of an organ and muscle system that you know almost nothing about?
Know Your Penis
Here is my advice. Start learning. Be proactive. Take control. Whether you are 18 or 80, it is never too late. There are three simple things you can do to get started on men organ:
1. Do Some Basic Research
Learn about your reproductive system, how it works and the problems that can develop with age. There are many good resources on the web. WebMD and The Mayo Clinic are two good starting points.
2. Once You Are Armed With The Facts, Start Talking!
If you are experiencing issues, whether it is premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, or dribbling after urinating, consider engaging your urologist, a sexual health expert or therapist, and/or your spouse or significant other. The point is, don’t keep the issues to yourself.
3. Take Action
Many people get advice but never follow through. It is important to actually address and correct the issues. In the case of premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, or incontinence, sometimes the simplest, all natural solutions maybe the best, before resorting to drugs or surgery.
Thank you for these amazing post. Very informative. :) I'm very excited to share these to my patients.
every girl who has been offended to men is either fooled by men or not even get a chance to get close to one... \U0001f602\U0001f602
That's it? This is nothing everyone has not heard already. With all the media info available about the topics this article barely touched on. Who hasn't seen a commercial about E.D. ?
Just another tirade about a subject not discussed, and neither was it this time ....just an advert....
Just a dumb ass bitching about men again, dear author of article sorry your mother turned you queer ,,,but the rest of us men didnt grow up brainwashed like you,
Many men think that losing their virility is normal as they age. It is NOT. It's common because of diet, lack of exercise and lack of knowledge about their own bodies. But it is not normal.
I have a client who's 88 and he routinely chases me around my massage table every time he comes in. God help me if he ever catches me because he's fully capable of carrying out all his plans, without the aid of any medication. He's also the scourge of his retirement home because he takes care of everyone's wives. Even if their husband isn't dead yet.
Because it can only do one thing at a time. It can't think and perform at the same time. LOL \U0001f602
I'm not one of those men. I love my penis and I do every thing possible to keep him potent \U0001f602\U0001f602
How many men\women know that sperm is stored in testes surrounded by the scrotum which helps control the temperature that makes it possible to produce sperm?
Psht! They don't even love themselves...What's with the little sausage \U0001f602\U0001f602\U0001f602\U0001f602
I think this is an EXCELLENT article. More should be done to get this message out to more men, and in all school health courses. In my anatomy\physiology text book male reproduction (& female) is discussed in the very last chapter. Male penis is never shown on TV when female breast and vaginia are often shown. The male organ is nothing to be ashamed of or to be kept in the dark. I hope this is a topic that should be widely discussed.....and now!! Great topic!! Enlightening Post.
