Ever since the formation of the fetus, the penis is growing and developing but, by and large, the most notable stage is around the age of thirteen. We can say that after the age of eighteen, the penis will have acquired its final form, i.e. Neither size nor shape will vary much …… although every body is unique and in some people this development may continue for a few more years (or even stop developing earlier).

Waking up with an erection is a curious but often uncomfortable phenomenon that much of the world’s population has to deal with quite regularly. What is the scientific explanation behind this “Morning Power”?
Nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT), using the correct terminology, refers to spontaneous erections that occur during sleep or when waking up. All men, without erectile dysfunction, normally have these erections around three to five times during sleep.
NPT actually begins in the womb (yes, seriously, in the womb!) and continues throughout life. Women also experience arousal in their clitoris during sleep, as is also the case in many non-human mammals.
Although some different theories have been proposed in recent years to explain NPT, its cause remains 100% uncertain. As in clitoral erections, they… Leer más »
At long last, a study to do away with much of the controversy about penis size and perhaps at the same time ease the problems shared by many people throughout the Western world, starting of course with Spain.
According to new research, the average length of the erect penis in Europe and around the North Western Hemisphere is little more than “13 centimetres”, or about 5 inches. Moreover, the same study highlights that there is no decisive association between foot size and length of the penis, so women can stop judging men by the size of their shoes.
You can read the full study in BJU International.
Although many men claim to be within an average size of penis, this can be a bit misleading,… Leer más »

1.- congenital penile curvature (CPC) is caused by an asymmetric embryonic development of the corpora cavernosa. This curve of the penis during erection is usually ventral, and can be so severe (even more than 90 degrees) that sex can be very difficult or even impossible.
2. It is a relatively common disease in the Andrology office. According to some authors, a certain degree of penile curvature can be observed in up to 4 out of 10 men. In more severe cases, it can seriously affect sex and can cause psychological concern. It will require special handling by the specialist and a sensitive approach.
3. Two main types of congenital curvature of the phallus can be found, depending on the development of the corpus spongiosum: those… Leer más »

Vasectomy is carried out on the channels through which sperm move from the testes to the structures leading to the urethra. The operation therefore interrupts the passage of sperm through this channel, a muscular tube which propels sperm outwards.
With this treatment, the sexual function is maintained and ejaculation continues to occur in the same way, with only a reduction of 10% in the flow containing sperm.
There are several myths regarding vasectomy:
– the myth that it can have a negative effect on sexuality
– the myth that it is irreversible.
Ninguno de ellos se ajusta a la realidad. En palabras del propio jefe de urología de la Clínica Andromedi de Sevilla, el Dr. Natalio Cruz, “hay que destacar que desde hace mucho tiempo… Leer más »
