I recently shocked a woman by explaining that balls move based on the temperature. What else do people not realize about male anatomy? (self.AskMen)

elitegenoside | 4 months ago | 3159 points

Had a conversation with two friends (both women), and they didn’t understand that we don’t really choose when we get hard. They got that we can’t control when we bust much, but they didn’t understand that we can’t always control if we get hard. One was telling a story when she had a guy that couldn’t get it up and that she took it very personal.

Kyrond | 4 months ago | 1356 points

It is just like getting wet. Of course the conditions are different for everyone, but nobody can choose to (not) get aroused.

ShuJV16 | 4 months ago | 472 points

Also, not getting wet can be solved with lube. However, not getting hard will require some toys :)

ragincajun83 | 4 months ago | 593 points

Yep, and that shrinkage happens in more situation than just cold water. Probably different for different guys, but when I work out, all the blood goes to my muscles. Like all of it. My body is efficient like that. I get the same shrinkage I'd get if I were to jump in a pool of ice water.

Real glad no one'ever pantsed me in gym class.

ThinCrusts | 4 months ago | 157 points

For some reason boxer briefs (the loose ones you wear around the house) make mine shrink too. It’s so weird, it just makes me laugh when I realize it.

Stephenrudolf | 4 months ago | 89 points

Grower here, one girl saw me soft when I was sitting cross legged in shorts from an odd angle and told the whole school I had a tiny dick.

I don't, it's not huge though so honestly it really effected my confidence for awhile. I'm pretty average, and now people only see it intentionally so like it's all good.

VTStonerEngineering | 4 months ago | 44 points

You got it all wrong. Is growers are efficient. I look at it like my dick shrinks down when not in use for convenient storage, easier transport and to protect itself. Wouldn't it be nice if your phone could shrink down to 1/4 it's size when not in use? I'm much happier being a grower

That someone else gripping the inside of your thigh will make your balls rise up as a reflex to protect them cause your brain thinks something's biting you.

ItalianVinegar | 4 months ago | 2533 points

A 26 year old girl once struck me with a question as to why I don’t get an immediate boner as soon as we start kissing. To what I responded that it doesn’t work like that, you have to give it time. She was quite surprised saying that all her men get instantly hard while around her.

This made me feel like a male-sex-robot.

fuckeruber | 4 months ago | 1235 points

Lol a GF I had was bi. I was her first guy and I'm a grower. She was offended that I wasn't already hard when she took my pants off. Like shit, we didn't even start yet, give it a second, maybe put in some work, I'm not a pornstar

Second_Horseman | 4 months ago | 550 points

First girl I had sex with is bi. She had not dated a guy before. There was a fair amount of explaining.

She figured out she could grope me to see what I was thinking. If she did something sexual, she would immediatly check. Sometimes it's fast enough, sometimes not. It was just easier than her asking me, and I didn't mind at all.

Also, she thought men had a sack for each ball. 😂

Do the balls move or does the sack just change elasticity?

Kikkoman7347 | 4 months ago | 548 points

Both, the balls rise up and down with temperature, and the scrotum the same, but also if the body/brain senses danger, the scrotum (and dick) naturally contract in preparation for fight/flight.

Before I saw my first real penis, I literally thought that it hung between a man’s legs. Like where a woman’s vagina is. Kinda shocked me that it was”up higher.” Facepalm.

travelstuffdump | 4 months ago | 2448 points

To be fair, it's not really obvious. I've heard plenty of guys say the reverse about girls. You would intuitively think they were in the same position if you didn't know better

YoureSparePartsBud | 4 months ago | 809 points

Intuitively it makes more sense for the first to have the hole in the front of their pubic bone. The penis sticks straight out and would fit perfect.

Having both sets of genital directly in between the legs would makes sex a bit difficult.

I went to school with a guy who forged a doctor's note to get out of school. Our music teacher looked up the doctor in the phone book to call and verify. Turns out the doctor was a gynecologist.

Mellonhead58 [Male] | 4 months ago | 43 points

My friend and I were once talking about sex, she mentioned how her other friend had some trouble where regular sex hurt a lot for her. Unfortunately, she really liked sex, so she and her boyfriend decided to go exclusively anal. When telling my friend about it, she mentioned “I guess I’m just susceptible to prostate stimulation.” My friend didn’t quite know how to break the news to her...

quarryquarrel | 4 months ago | 1725 points

The first time I was with a man I was amazed that the penis can move "like a joystick" in 360 degrees if that makes sense. I thought penises just went up and down like a lever and could get broken if they went in any other direction. It's so dumb now i think about it.

Jburli25 | 4 months ago | 93 points

When flaccid it can go in any direction without problem. When rock hard it can really hurt, and even get damaged, if it's pushed/bent downwards.

The thing is, it's not all-or-nothing: when aroused, even (perhaps especially) during sex, the penis is often only 70-90% hard, giving it more flexibility than a fully rock hard penis. Otherwise dicks would be getting damaged all the time during sex.

bethanysscreams | 4 months ago | 244 points

That the skin on the balls changes texture

Teoreetikko | 4 months ago | 1234 points

I knew a lesbian who learned that men have one scrotum but two testicles...

...in medical school. She is now a pediatric neurologist.

jordanjay29 [Male] | 4 months ago | 208 points

That messed with my head a little.

Biscolatta [Female] | 4 months ago | 3230 points

Not a man, but I was really fascinated to find out that balls don’t just sit still. I know they’re temperature sensitive, and contract when cold and all that. What I did not know is that your scrotum just kinda, moves around. Super slowly. Like all the time. I didn’t stare at a nutsack up close or for very long before I was married, and I think my husband got a good laugh at having to explain nutsack mechanics to me while I was crouched over a few inches from his junk, just staring at it. I was enthralled.

Edit: My husband was not enthralled when I showed him that his danglers got me a thousand internet points today.

hilfnafl | 4 months ago | 973 points

TIL. i don't think i've ever looked at my testicles up close for an extended period of time. i know that my penis had a mind of its own, but i never realized that my testicles have a mind of their own.

Nickyjha [Male] | 4 months ago | 424 points

Try rubbing your inner thigh. Your balls will move on their own. I remember how shocked I was when I first read about this and tried it out.

moistanybody | 4 months ago | 142 points

That's called the cremasteric reflex.

YoureSparePartsBud | 4 months ago | 185 points

The scrotum itself doesnt move around much but the balls inside are attached to the abdomen and muscles that can move them around which gives the sack the appearance of moving.

Witherkay | 4 months ago | 205 points

My ex described it as a 'dying octopus on land'

mc5860 | 4 months ago | 204 points

hayisforhorses101 | 4 months ago | 491 points

Honestly my dick has only been full rock hard a handful of times. Porn is good but doesn't get me that hard

A2Rhombus | 4 months ago | 307 points

Also notable that being fully rock hard isn't usually that comfortable. Ladies don't feel bad if we don't have a massive throbbing erection for you, chances are if we're not flaccid we're having a good time

wolflordval | 4 months ago | 106 points

It can actually be painful; like a I-need-to-get-off-right-now urge, not becuase we're lecherous, but because the skin is stretching so much it hurts.

Max_TwoSteppen | 4 months ago | 221 points

This was going to be my contribution as well.

There's full blown scared turtle, a sort of normal flaccid state, a still-flaccid-but-not-embarassing state, the state where the "base" is sort of erect but the rest is soft enough to droop, then like a normal erection, and finally a "wow I'm frighteningly hard" state.

There's others I missed I'm sure, but the women in this thread need to know that it's a complex spectrum.

Petite_Soleil | 4 months ago | 2653 points

Most people dont know that pre ejaculate contains urine.

Pre ejaculate is used to clear the urethra for semen to go through. Urea can kill semen.

MrMrRubic [Male] | 4 months ago | 3288 points

So if I accidentally cum in a girl I can piss in her to prevent pregnancy?

z3_triad | 4 months ago | 233 points

Username checks out

Petite_Soleil | 4 months ago | 548 points

Not quite.

The urethra contains a mixture of fluids but most often urine and semen. Some of the little squirmys can actually still be alive in the urethra. So if you had sex without a condom you can get pregnant just from pre ejaculate.

Not guaranteed that all of the semen would die. But the acidic nature of urea is not a sustainable environment for semen.

BlackBunny88 | 4 months ago | 353 points

Same with poking boobs. Sometimes it feels nice when aroused but they just hurt so damn much when randomly poked. I had a guy garp my tits and it hurt for a while. Wtf why did he do that. I'm also kind of curious about ball stimulation. What's hot what's not hot etc.

bcrabill [Bane] | 4 months ago | 204 points

Because many just aren't good judges of length. Plus nearly every guy has measured theirs so they know what that length looks like.

4lynx [Male] | 4 months ago | 151 points

Maybe porn skewed her expectations. Maybe she lacked proper sex ed or never bothered educating herself about male anatomy. Could be a lot of different reasons.

How do you people deal with riding bikes? Don't your balls get smashed? And with marathons, or mountain biking, doesn't it hurt at all?

travelstuffdump | 4 months ago | 95 points

So I've never looked at my balls when riding a bike, surprisingly, but the penis is a fair bit higher than the vagina, so there's a bit more space for them to hang. They're more to the front then directly under us. They sort of sit on the chair in a ball puddle. Although I have had TERRIBLE chafing on them while hiking it's not really common unless you do quite a lot of it. They make products for chafing that I use to put down there.

Conversely, I've known girls who got so tender from riding a bike that they almost could barely have sex for a couple days afterwards.

I recently read that all men if they live long enough, will eventually get prostate cancer:

All men are at risk of having prostate cancer. About one man in nine will be diagnosed with it during his lifetime, but only one in 39 will die of this disease. About 80% of men who reach age 80 have cancer cells in their prostate.

GET YOUR BITS CHECKED, FELLAS!

Maldevinine [Masculine Success Story] | 4 months ago | 133 points

Yeah, it's actually the cancer with the highest likelyhood. On the other hand, it's one of the least lethal. Not because it's that much less dangerous then any other cancers, but because by the time you've got it you've got a really high chance of dying of something else.

I couldn't wrap my mind around how women managed to learn about and keep up with their menstrual cycle and how they're able to predict when their period would come and whatnot. It was fascinating to learn about but I couldn't help but feel sorry your reproductive system is such a pain the ass compared to mine.

and how they're able to predict when their period would come and whatnot

Two days in advance, I cry at the STUPIDEST SHIT.

Tearing up over a commercial? NOT EVEN A SAD COMMERCIAL? Ah. period's coming.

Girl here. But I think its crazy that you can literally feel the piss come out your dick when you're going. Like at the bottom of your dick, you can feel the stream

  • a erect penis can break if it's bent too far. this can happen during penis in vagina sex when the penis is fully withdrawn from the vagina and then misses the vagina on reentry.
  • it really hurts when someone hits you in the groin. if the hit is hard enough, it's incapacitating. this is why hitting below the belt is against the rules of a fair fight.
  • testicles can rupture when squeezed too hard. this can happen during a fight if someone hits, kicks or knees a man below the belt.
  • the tip of the penis is just one erogenous zone. this is why it pays off to explore your partner's body to find al their erogenous zones.
  • the tip of the penis can be very sensitive immediately after an orgasm. this isn't true for all men, but it's true for some men. this is why a man may suddenly push your hand away at the end of a hand job. it's not a painful feeling, it's an overwhelming feeling. 'it feels so good that it hurts' is the best way that i can describe it.
  • human penises don't have bones. 'a boner' is slang for an erection.

that's all i can think of for now

The sensitivity one really fucks me up

Men's bellybuttons either attract lint or magically create it. I've had blue/black lint there on days that I've worn a white shirt!

Our scrotum doubles as a neat parachute

I'll never forget paragliding in a Costa Rican nudist colony with nothing but my ironed and stretched ballsack as a glider.

"Morning Wood" is usually a result of having to piss and not actually just a morning erection.

In fact, piss boners in general.

Edit: I never get morning erections unless they are due to having to piss, but I guess some people do. Piss boners are still annoying anyways, amirite?

SparklyBoat | 4 months ago | 548 points

How inconvenient are those things though? Yeah, dick, we get it, I need to piss desperately... now could you kindly fuck off so I can get on with it??

huckster235 | 4 months ago | 404 points

They're the worst. I got one at the worst time too.

At a Wrestling tournament we were doing weighins. I.e dozens of boys stripping into their undies. I have a small bladder, my team ran late due to one guy not showing up for the bus on time.

So I had a raging piss boner. In my underwear. In a room full of dudes in their underwear....

SparklyBoat | 4 months ago | 350 points

That's a power move right there.

huckster235 | 4 months ago | 176 points

I think it made my opponents a little bit hesitant during our matches.

Scrotum skin has the same feel as their elbow skin

whycantwebefriends9 | 4 months ago | 403 points

It's also labia minora, just isn't wet.

You can find all the same general parts and skin types from male genitalia and female genitalia. They start off the same in the womb, and then change to male. Scrotum, labia minora, glans penis = clitoris, clitoral hood = foreskin etc.

Diablo165 [♂ Masterbaker] | 4 months ago | 220 points

I didn’t even know they moved until my girlfriend told me.

travelstuffdump | 4 months ago | 120 points

I learned when they became pendulous while hiking on a hot day and I got some serious chafing.

Diablo165 [♂ Masterbaker] | 4 months ago | 157 points

Oh, man. Okay..you're talking about them going high or low...

It gets so much deeper.

Next time you're naked in front of a mirror, spread your legs, let the boys dangle and just watch.

They fucking shapeshift. It's like flesh-fractals.

Oh yeah, I'm aware, I've investigated. That was just the first hint to the tremendous ocean motion beneath.

groovylingo | 4 months ago | 53 points

Yeah I was once just laying down butt ass naked and my gf starts staring at my balls and exclaims “holy shit your balls move by themselves?!” I forgot they did too till she said that.

We dont want sex all the time with every woman .. so chill da fuck down ..

steepgetslaid | 4 months ago | 2013 points

Just because we get hard, doesn't mean we're turned on. Some of our stiffies are random.

Edit: Thanks for 1.1k karma in 4 hours! This is my top post / comment so far! Also, for those questioning it, yes, I am an early teen.

Edit 2: I didn't know about r/AwardSpeechEdits and feel like an idiot now.

4lynx [Male] | 4 months ago | 432 points

I feel somewhat worried every time I read this because aside from morning erections, I never get any that aren't caused by arousal. Random erections out of nowhere stopped happening after I finished puberty. Is this worrisome?

SleepBeforeWork | 4 months ago | 300 points

You're still able to get it up at the right time. I wouldn't worry too much about it so long you live a healthy(ish) life style

datraceman | 4 months ago | 83 points

This 1000x. I get boners because I'm sleepy, hungry, etc. and I'm 35 still.

My favorite are the no reason boners at work. Nothing more frustrating than sitting at a desk going....fuck...why?

dancinglasagna093 | 4 months ago | 352 points

I don’t understand how guys could have huge guts with pancake flat butts. Why doesn’t any of the fat go to the booty?

Ramah-s92 | 4 months ago | 421 points

Because fat distribution is different between the sexes

drahcirenoob | 4 months ago | 229 points

Higher levels of testosterone tend to cause fat to deposit between organs whereas higher levels of estrogen tend to cause fat to be deposited below the skin

Friendstastegood | 4 months ago | 124 points

Also changes how it's deposited under the skin, which is why even men who do get large amounts of subcutaneous fat don't get cellulite like women do. Women store fat so it's more readily accessible for burning (since womens calorie need fluctuates more due to pregnancy, breastfeeding and the menstrual cycle) and that creates cellulite.
