Art Penis

Selasa, 01 Juli 2008

This was first seen on the famous Nobscan web site. Which now unfortunately seems to have been hacked and neglected.
It used to feature a huge and bizarre range, of willie's artistically arranged on flat bed scanners.

Most people would settle for photocopying their arse at the office Christmas party. This is much more artistic and bizarre.

Condoms - One size fits all - a rant

For years I truly hated the damn things.
They really were uncomfortable and an incredible turn-off.
They were a necessary evil.
Whoops! I'm not being very politically correct here, am I? The official line is that they are wonderful in every way and anybody who has a problem, is obviously some sort of wimp.

The biggest (and smallest) problem is that one size does not fit all. So why on earth don't they make them in all shapes and sizes? It was only after years of cursing Durex, that I discovered that there were alternatives. So after trying a few, I discovered the Joy of the Trojan Ultra Pleasure.

I think I am right in saying, that to meet the British Standard, all UK condoms must be 52mm wide. Yes they do stretch, but so do bras, so why don't they make them all in size 36B. That's the average.

So all I had to do was import them from the States. And there were all sorts of others to try. Some were good and others less so, but it was fun and exciting to try.
Yes! Suddenly condoms were fun and sexy.

Rolled up comdom
Currently there is no reason for us to use condoms, but sometimes I see a new type and can't resist seeing how it feels. Damn it! They get better all the time.
And now I've just noticed that one company has actually started making condoms in 55 sizes. And it's the same company were I discovered the huge range, several years ago.

I wasn't going to put any commercial links on this site, but here's one, because they are doing important work: Condomania (the one in the USA)

A few words of advice:
Polyurethane Condoms : These are bigger than your average latex model. This is because the forces required to stretch them are enormous. If you are Mr. Average, then these condoms will probably suit you. If you are thin, they will fall off. If you are thick, you'll never get one on.

Natural Condoms : They're made from sheep innards. Which I could come to terms with, if they didn't smell of roast lamb. Maybe they should come with a mint sauce lubricant.

Plain ended condom on penisPlain Ended : Why don't they make more like that? I think it looks good. On condoms, the dangley bit isn't very esthetically pleasing, especially for oral sex.
(The rubber at the tip is loose, so there is room for the come.)

New Book Slams Caveman Myth

The notion that a man's sexual promiscuity and physical aggression can be traced to his stone-age ancestors is a myth, argues author Martha McCaughey in her new book that dissects what she calls caveman mystique. "For all these things that men are criticized for doing, evolution claims that they are just cavemen inside and that it's something their male ancestors did. We need to get rid of those justifications and get men to take responsibility for their behavior instead of relying on these cultural narratives," she said.

McCaughey's book, The Caveman Mystique: Pop-Darwinism and the Debates Over Sex, Violence, and Science, tackles the notion that we are modern-day people with cave-day brains. "I dispute a lot of that and caution my students and others not to unquestioningly accept what they read about evolution, and to recognize that these are speculative claims without hard scientific evidence."

McCaughey, from Appalachian State University, admits that it's a hard task, as popular writers put their own interpretation on these theories and readers often accept as scientific fact that the differences between men and women are solely rooted in evolutionary heritage. She also finds that her students — both male and female — think male aggression is rooted in evolution and therefore natural.

To truly understand men and their behavior, suggests McCaughey, it's important to understand the emotional, economic, political and sociological changes that have occurred over time, and to also recognize how magazines, commercials, television programs and other forms of popular media often contribute to a skewed understanding of men and male behavior. "Without a critical, historical view of how scientific stories have emerged to answer questions about men's sexual behaviors and feelings, evolution has become the paradigm through which many people understand men," she writes in the book.

She also dismisses the dogma that a man's reluctance to commit to a monogamous relationship is solely based on his ancient ancestors' desires for many partners as a way of ensuring the continuation of his genes. Instead, she theorizes that the nation's changing economy, wage stagnation and other factors contributed to a shift away from men marrying in their early 20s to marrying later in life.

"In the 1950s, men had jobs that allowed them to be successful breadwinners for their family," McCaughey says. "A man in his 20s today can't economically support a wife and children as the sole breadwinner the way many more men in the 1950s could. As a result, men are marrying later in life. This reluctance to commit to marriage is not because of the caveman brain or a man's promiscuity. It's tied to the economic and political changes that have occurred during the past decades."

"Evolutionary psychology paints a picture making us think all men are one way and all women another when there are considerable variations over time," she continues. "The caveman mystique crushes men's potential by defining them as moral and physical drifters." She adds that when men and women better understand the social origins of ideas and the effects those ideas have on society and individuals' feelings and behaviors, they will view masculinity differently and dismiss the caveman stereotype.

George Atkinson: Bikinis Trigger Gimme, Gimme, Gimme Response

Writing in the Journal of Consumer Research, researchers have observed that watching a sexy video or handling lingerie will cause men to seek immediate gratification - even when it involves non-sexy things such as money, soda or candy.

The researchers found that the desire for immediate rewards increased in men who touched bras, looked at pictures of beautiful women, or watched video clips of young women in bikinis running through a park. "It seems that sexual appetite causes a greater urgency to consume anything rewarding," they suggest. "Thus, the activation of sexual desire appears to spill over into other brain systems involved in reward-seeking behaviors, even the cognitive desire for money."

The researchers believe that sexy stimuli bring men's minds to the present, as opposed to the future. "The study demonstrates that bikinis cause a shift in time preference: Men live in the here and now when they glance at pictures featuring women in lingerie. That is, men will choose the immediately available rewards and seek immediate gratification after sex cue exposure," they contend in their article.

Do all straight men respond the same? No, say the researchers, noting that some men are highly responsive to rewards while others are not so sensitive, and the more reward-sensitive men are the impatient ones. In fact, doing a task designed to inspire financial satisfaction reduced the bikini-inspired impatience, just as feeling full reduces food cravings. The researchers drolly suggest that men may want to be aware of bikinis' effects on their bank accounts and waistlines.

Twisting of head in relation to penis shaft

Rabu, 18 Juni 2008

1. Erect
The twist of the shaft on erection is a common anomaly. Estimates suggest between 3 and 5% of men have some degree of twisting.

2. Flaccid
The twist illustrated below is associated with hypospadias, though such an anomaly may occur without hypospadias being present. In this penis, the raphe runs at an angle down the length of the penile shaft, representing the true midline of the shaft. The urethral meatus is apparently displaced to one side.
