I’m Not Impotent: the Reality of Erectile Dysfunction

The word impotence has gone out of mode in the sexual health jargon. It is a bombastic word that implies that something has gone wrong beyond the erection, that there is some sort of malfunction in the manhood.

Women have just accepted this idea because by the time we develop any real knowledge of penises, the men have instilled in us an understanding of their noble wisdom – that bigger is superior. Men have prided and humbled themselves on this belief since time immemorial. Mostly, they have been humbled by false... read more

Finding Indicators of Penis Size

More accurately, the notion is that feet, hands or noses suggest the length of the penis, so the astute observer should be able to make the measure before actually diving in and testing the waters.

A Spoonful of Semen

There is a lot of confusion over the bonus value of semen in a person’s diet. Actually, that is a nice way of saying, “Give me a good reason why I should swallow and not spit!” Some sources say that semen is packed with calories or bad for you, and yet others claim it is the elixir of good health.
