The human penis is an external male intromittent organ that additionally serves as the urinal duct. The main parts are the root radix ; the body corpus ; and the epithelium of the penis including the shaft skin and the foreskin prepuce covering the glans penis. The body of the penis is made up of three columns of tissue : two corpora cavernosa on the dorsal side and corpus spongiosum between them on the ventral side.
Congenital and acquired conditions that affect the male genitalia; some may require emergency evaluation and treatment. Diagnosis based on clinical findings identified in a wide variety of age groups from newborn to adult. Localised occurrences of inflammation and infection are amenable to medical treatment; surgery with varying degrees of reconstruction may be required.
Anonymous, age and sex unspecified Dear Carole, Why are women so obsessed with the size of a man's cock — wanting ones 6 inches and over and kicking others aside when they really should be concentrating on the emotional connection and love being shared, putting the size of the man's cock right out of her mind? Carole replies: The origins of the primate sex drive go back more than 60m years to the late Mesozoic era when the first primate evolved. A lot of sex has taken place since then, and a significant proportion has been motivated by female choice between rival males.
The bag of skin that holds and helps to protect the testicles. The testicles make sperm and, to do this, the temperature of the testicles needs to be cooler than the inside of the body. This is why the scrotum is located outside of the body.

For those who didn't catch last night's hot and steamy love scene between Sloan played by actor Eric Dane and "intern" Lexie Grey Chyler Leighbe advised: it ended painfully—very painfully. At least for Sloan, who suffered a severe injury to his manhoodwhich prompted a slew of rumors among hospital staff about which woman "broke Sloan's penis," according to ABC's online recap of the episode. Given that there are no bones in the penis, can it really break?
The penis forms part of the male external genitalia and is the common outlet for urine and semen. It consists of an internal root, and the externally visible body and glans. The root of the penis is composed of three erectile tissues: the bulb, and the right and left crura.
Penisthe copulatory organ of the male of higher vertebrates that in mammals usually also provides the channel by which urine leaves the body. The corresponding structure in lower invertebrates is often called the cirrus. The human penis is anatomically divided into two continuous areas—the body, or external portion, and the root. The root of the penis begins directly below the bulbourethral glands with a long cylindrical body of tissue known as the corpus spongiosum or corpus cavernosum urethrae.
In this article, we will look at the functions and structure of the penis and how these give rise to certain clinical conditions. Note: In the anatomical position the penis is erect, so the dorsal side is that closest to the abdomen and the ventral side is closest to the testes. The root and body of the penis are spanned by three masses of erectile tissue.
