Let’s talk erections!

After reading this article you will know Everything about erections.

WHAT ARE ERECTIONS?

Erections/boners or hard on’s, whatever you may call them, arise when the penis fills with blood and stretches in its shape and in size. They can last for a couple of minutes or longer. It all differs with different men.

DID YOU KNOW?

There are three kinds of erections – reflexogenic erections come from actual contact, like with a partner; psychogenic erections come from audiovisual stimulation or fantasy, so like porn; and nocturnal erections take place at night, like with a dirty dream.

SAFE SEX TIP:

YOU can get pregnant at any time of your menstrual cycle. Sperm can survive for a few days in the female reproductive tract, so thinking you’re safe because you’re on your period is definitely not as safe and effective as you might think.

Question: Dear Lolita Frikkadel, I’ve always wondered whether it’s possible to break a man’s penis…

I am a 26 year old gay guy. I’ve heard people talk about this but would like to know some facts around it. Hope you are able to help.

Big Black.

Lolita Frikkadel: Hello there Big Black, you ask a very interesting and important question, and I’m sure there are lots of people out there who have been wondering exactly the same thing, so there’s no need to feel shy about it.

And with a name such as Big Black I’m sure there aren’t many things you actually are shy about… nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

Okay, let’s get serious for a second – it is in fact possible to break, or as the professionals say fracture, an erect penis.

How does it work you ask?

Well there’s two cylindrical type tubes inside your penis and when you get an erection these get pumped up and full of blood – causing it to become hard and ready for penetration. Think of these two tubes like balloons that are being blown up.

Now if an erect penis gets hit or bent, the tissue inside might not be able to stand up against the force.
This basically means the surrounding tissue that’s holding the pressure inside can’t withstand it anymore, and this is where and when a break can occur.

So how exactly does it happen?

Well Big Black, say you and your partner are busy getting sexy and you thrust hard and miss your partner’s orifice (whether this is mouth, anal or even vaginal), or if your partner accidentally sits on your erect penis.

It can happen to any guy and there are even times when it has happened during masturbation.

Sounds terrible right? And I believe it feels even worse! And you’ll hear it! Apparently it will sound like a pop or a crack.

Now it should come as no surprise that you may lose your erection right away Big Black, and you will even see dark bruises appear on your penis.

Ok what on earth is “jj”??? #thong #mensunderwear #erection #gift #gifts #giftsforgrandad

Now I know how this sounds, but sadly it gets even worse!

If the break affects your urethra — the tube through which urine and semen leaves your body — you could even see blood in your pee. If this is the case, act fast! You’ll probably need an operation to repair the broken tissue.

The sooner the better hey Big Black, ideally within three days of the fracture. A penile fracture is not the same as breaking an arm or leg. A penis cannot be placed in a caste. A penile fracture is a surgical emergency, so don’t wait, get immediate medical treatment. Penile fractures can lead to scarring, deformity, and even erectile dysfunction so it’s no laughing matter.

Luckily penile fractures are quite uncommon, so you don’t stress now every time you and your lover get busy.
So how can you prevent a penile fracture Big Black?

Make sure you’re fully erect before penetrating your partner. If you’re not, there’s a chance that your penis could torque or twist, which could heighten the risk factor.
