SATURDAY DINING OUT

Published April 10, 2013 by Tony

SATURDAY NIGHT IN NAPLES and NEW YORK

Standard of living and lifestyle have influenced and still influence the way how people spend their weekend. If we take as a reference two medium families, one from Naples and another from New York, both formed by working parents, with one or more adult children, probably in a month the Neapolitan parents spend one Saturday or Sunday to dine out, while the New Yorker parents spend three. For New Yorkers the Saturday “evening dining out” was, until recently, an obligation, especially for couples with both engaged in work. Due to the popular demand, in order to go to a restaurant or pizzeria in New York, a Saturday evening reservation even was necessary. Where the New Yorker didn’t go out to dinner, as an alternative there always was a dinner party hosted by some friends at their home or in a pub. A lifestyle difficult to eradicate, even in view of the fact that wives were not inclined to spend weekend at home, between cooking and dishes.
Aside from this substantial cultural difference, there was another of economic nature, because an average Neapolitan family certainly did not have the same economic opportunity of the overseas peers.
Although a normal dinner in a normal restaurant in the Neapolitan hinterland costs less than the one in a similar restaurant in New York, the average Neapolitan family culturally is more “conservative” and traditionalist, with wives, who, although involved in work, have not lost their  “housewives” identity, preferring to stay at home during the weekend.  In Naples, there has never been a “dining party” culture, and instead of Saturday dining out, if anything, the custom of a Sunday lunch away from home has always been more in vogue. But occasionally and not as a weekly habit. The Neapolitan wife has always been very attached to the house and the children and  weekend is just a chance to spend more time at home with family, and attend to all those household chores that she has not been able to do during the week.
Our habits have not changed much over the years. The economic situation has led, if anything, to renounce to some Sunday lunch at the restaurant and be thriftier in foodstuffs purchase.

Americans, instead, after a hard week spent at work, look forward to weekends, planning in advance for them.  For many weekend means going out with friends or relatives, outdoor activities or watching a game in a stadium.
In the past, one of the largest changes in American eating habits was the increasing reliance on food eaten away from home (FAFH). FAFH increased from 33% of total food expenditures in 1970 to 47% by 2003. Most of this is at table service and fast food restaurants.
Much of the growth is attributed to the rising value of household time, especially as induced by more female labor force participation, and rising household incomes.
As a 2009 Zagat Survey showed, eating out was a way of life for many Americans, with 50% of all meals prepared outside the home. In short, restaurants became the family kitchen for the busy two-career families. According to Zagat Survey CEO Tim Zagat, “Americans are still eating out in restaurants, they are just making smarter choices.”

Recently, the economic downturn, occasional jobs and financial turmoil in America have made it difficult for people to find enough money to afford their “dining out” habit.
Lately, Americans are making family dinner more often than dine out, a trend that slowly took root before the recession. Mostly, they’re cooking with and eating a narrow range of foods — and relying, to some extent, on prepared, frozen, and canned items to feed their families quickly and economically. “It’s very boring. That’s the sad truth,” says Harry Balzer, chief food industry analyst for the NPD Group, a national market research company. “For the most part, we’re looking for what’s the eaesiest way out of this, what’s the cheapest way out of this.” Balzer said, the number of restaurant meals an American family eats — dine-in or takeout — has been flat, at just under 200 a year, correlating to plateaus of both women in the workforce and household incomes.

Even the New York Times supported the thesis of the “end of the dinner party” because people do not have more money, time and wish to do so.  Someone else says that beyond the crisis there is a lack of good manners and savoir faire, with people no longer able to have a conversation and that’s why lately “finger food” and “standing up” are preferred to dinner party.

AVERAGE SEX DURATION

Published October 11, 2012 by Tony

HOW LONG SHOULD SEXUAL INTERCOURSE LAST FOR


It is  said that in our bedroom we can do what we wants. What happens in bed is something strictly private, especially if we refer to sex.  But, although we are not all the same, I think that what happens in bed not differentiate each other so much. Perhaps we are more different at the table or in dressing.  Apart from some special cases, most men do the same things when in bed with a partner, during a sexual intercourse. Beside, the average sex time is not as long as you’d think.
Tenderness, hugging, foreplay and then… the coitus, without or with some short break if he wants a longer intercourse.
Since the variables are different, it is not easy to establish an average in duration, although some statistics tell us that we are in a range between 15-30 minutes. But if we take into consideration only the duration of the copulation, excluding any other variable, even foreplay, then the statistics and polls become more precise and reliable.
According to a new study called “Canadian and American Sex Therapists’ Perceptions of Normal and Abnormal Ejaculatory Latencies“, a coitus lasts anywhere from three to seven minutes. This is as a physiological factor.
This data corresponds closely to other studies, which put the average of the pure intercourse at five to seven minutes. Few people have intercourse that goes longer than 10 minutes.
Differently from popular fantasy about the need for hours of sexual activity…or about some men pretending pretentiously to be as a train’s long-ride with no stop.
Men who are able to have a double ejaculation with no “recovery time” or  physiological pause, so that they can carry on the sexual act without stopping, can be counted on fingertips. After ejaculation, the recovery time after which every man is again able to excite and have a new erection, varies from person to person and can range from a few minutes to many… many hours.

Unfortunately, today’s popular culture has reinforced stereotypes about sexual activity. Many men and women seem to believe the fantasy model of large penises, rock-hard erections and all-night-long intercourse… absurd.
Luckily, if a guy is concerned about how long intercourse should last, these data reassure him and avert the thought of some physical disorders.
On Wikipedia, under the voice “Sexual intercourse”, we can read “Intercourse ends when the man has ejaculated…. Masters and Johnson found that men took about 4 minutes to reach orgasm with their partners while women took about 10–20 minutes to reach orgasm…. In 1991 the Kinsey Institute stated, “The truth is that the appropriate length for intercourse is the length of time it takes for both partners to be mutually satisfied”.
This means that it is useless, if not even annoying, if sexual intercourse lasts much longer than woman’s needs to be satisfied. Many studious consider a time of 20 min. the most appropriate for most women. It is supposed that you know your partner’s needs and you should try to adapt yourself to her.
Those who want to reach a long ‘screw’, beyond foreplay or various break, must understand that sex is done with the head before it by their body. Therefore they must control their behavior and emotions. A simple way to do this is to divert the mind when they feel that “their time” is about to expire… before the ejaculation arrives. Although quite unromantic, they need to think about things that are so important to overpower and take precedence over the sweet and pleasant sensations that sex is giving them on that moment. I do not know now, but think about bills, bickering with the boss or to the poor state of health of a family member, for example. It requires only a minute, the right time to “cool the ardor” without losing  the erection or the wish to go on. If you are able you can repeat, after some time, this gimmick. Someone also finds useful slowing down through very small-pauses, switching positions and varying the speed and pattern of his thrusts. By these simple gimmicks and adding 10 min. (as average) for prior foreplay, most guys can get a satisfying intercourse lasting 30 minutes even.

I forgot to say that the “time” or “duration” of which we are speaking about, also depends on the age of the person. In general, the stimulus, the sensitivity of the penis, as the reaction times decrease with age, and this involves a small increase in the time required to achieve ejaculation. As a middle-aged person, I now can confirm that this statement is true and made me happy because I have never liked foreplay and my partner had to make do with my “to-and-fro” never higher than 15 min. From long, with no ploy, I can reach the half-hour.
About glans, those who suffer from premature ejaculation, since youth and who are not circumcised, could receive a benefit accustoming themselves to keep the penis constantly “open” (with the foreskin pulled up) in their briefs. Over time, the glans slowly will lose in sensitivity.

Brainstorm came when some years ago I began to answer some question on “Yahoo!Answers” web-page and realized how many doubts about sex and sexuality boys (but men and women too) have, while some question was so repetitive to become intolerable. Though sex is a topic very diffused, illiteracy and fallacy aren’t unusual. It’s not my intent to rise on a chair as a professor, having – on the other side – neither qualifications nor titles for that, but I only want to put at other’s disposal my knowledge and experience, hoping it can be useful for someone then, giving the input to delve into.

COMMON TEENS QUESTIONS ABOUT SEX

(First part)

At what age the male sexual development starts?
When does male puberty begin?

Same question and similar answer: from 12 to 14
At what age the sexual development ends?

Usually at 14 – 16
At what age the growth ends?

Till what age can I grow (height)?
Usually 18 – 20
What is Wet Dream?

Spontaneous and normal nocturnal erections
How avoid nocturnal erections?

By a costant sexual activity

Please consider these ages as indicative. Height and sexual development are connected because they have their spurt during a particular time in human life called PUBERTY. From the birth and till the start of the puberty the development is slow but continuous, becoming faster just during the puberty and lasting 2-4 years long. Then it decreases till to and stop definitively. During this time any child becomes a man physically. For male subjects puberty starts later compared to female and stats say that for male the average ranges among 12 – 14 years. But no worry if it may start a little sooner or later. Anyway, if at 15 years old you note no sign of sexual development yet, it’s the case to talk with a doctor. Most evident signs of puberty in progress are the increase of the tallness (in some case it’s so fast to be called “spurt of growth”), of the sexual organs, the growth of hair on the body (but on pubic area and on lip mainly), and the change of voice tone (by lowest pitch). Usually, not longer than 16-18 years the bones growth slows down, until to stop at 19-20 inexorably! There is no way to know in advance the definitive height. It’s a genetic issue and teenagers can do a rough expectation only looking at their progenitor height, considering that he can’t hope to be 6.23 ft. if his dad, grandfather and great grandparents were not more than 5.57 ft. While the growth is going on also the body shape changes, due to the increasing muscular mass, but the great number of hormones bring some psychological and mental changes too. This particular advanced time of puberty is called ADOLESCENCE when most boys can feel depressed irascible discouraged insecure listless or negligent. For someone it becomes time to evade, break with tradition, protest or becomes introvert. Both parental and social relationships become difficult and unstable. Nothing to worry however, it will subside! Adolescence is time when sexual development is thriving and so erection and sexual excitement increase. Very common are the “wet dreams” and nocturnal erections (or spontaneous erections) due to the high testosterone flowing in the blood during the night mainly. Whether they are a concern for someone, you could come out starting masturbation or having a more constant sexual life. For somebody is useful carrying out masturbation before going to bed. About masturbation, in general more mature and up-and-coming boy starts by himself this new experience while somebody else postpone it until the comparison with friends and further knowledge bringing him to try later.

Can I become taller?
How can I become taller?

Yes if the medical treatment begins during prepuberal age
What is the average (American) height?

Doctors can intervene for helping someone to increase the tallness only if his development isn’t in the end yet and better if during the infancy. Specific hormonal treatments together some sport (swimming, basketball, volleyball, etc.) can be useful for this purpose. Useless asking to get taller at 18 or 20 years old! It’s too late! Somebody – verging on the stupidity – even asks for getting longer arms only! Probably, in the future by genetic engineering & robotic this will be possible. Anyway, some American poll, comparing age and height, says:

10 years 55.67 in.
11 years 58.54 in.
12 years 60.94 in.
13 years 63.03 in.
14 years 66.34 in.
15 years 68.43 in.
16 years 69.02 in.
17 years 69.02 in.
18 years 69.37 in.
19 years 69.49 in.
20 years 62.99 – 70.87 in. (average)

§ Anatomy & Penis size

First, these are the principal external parts of the penis you must know:
Glanspractically is the head of the penis, often the biggest part where the urethra ends by the orifice where pee and sperm come out.

[ http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cc/Foreskin2.jpg , A PIC ]

Frenulum –is the the strip of skin joining foreskin with the penis. It is alike the thread connecting tongue to the palate.

What is the average penis (cock) size?

How long a normal penis is or should be?

Nearly 5 – 7
Till what age penis grow?

15-17 more or less
How long my penis will grow?

How long my penis will be?

It’s a genetic issue, no one can know it in advance
What is depending penis size on?

Above I told that during puberty the sexual development starts and at 12-13 years, when most toddlers notice that penis is growing.

[here for penis in pre-pubescence time: http://img.medscape.com/fullsize/migrated/541/801/un541801.fig1.jpg , http://img.springerimages.com/Images/Springer/PUB=Springer-Verlag-Berlin-Heidelberg/JOU=00431/VOL=2007.166/ISU=1/ART=2006_202/MediaObjects/WATER_431_2006_202_Fig3_HTML.jpg , http://www.cirp.org/library/normal/702607.jpg ] [here for puberty start: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2490/6/28/figure/F1 , http://www.mef.hr/Jurak/SliSem/2008/Case4sl01.jpg , http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/sexualorgangsBoy2.jpg]

Till sexual development isn’t ended you can’t be sure how long your penis will be. Wait and don’t be worried about size. As many other physic characteristics the penis shape and size are depending on genetic issues. As for the height, expecting to become well-hung whereas our progenitors aren’t, gets no sense. Unluckily, many men get the “locker-room syndromes”! A lot of guys fell ashamed to undress in front of other dudes afraid to have a little penis and to be judged for that. It’s ignorance and bad culture because penis size gets no meaning while most of us just have equal penis length when in flaccid state (flabby or slack).

About penis size, we can find around many polls carried out on different times and concerning age and race. The following table is a Canadian poll carried out online, so by internet whoever could take part everywhere. More than 3000 persons – affirming to be old from 18 to 55 – were engaged, but there was no way to verify the single entered information. However, the final data more or less is similar to the average coming out from the prior and well-known poll carried out from the Kinsey Institute. The single values put in the columns correspond to the most recurring datum entered by contributors, then giving back to the average.
[men erected penis in the mid-average: http://www.gaydemon.com/blogs/pictures/2006/08/chaosmen-ulrich.jpg , http://www.scallylad.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/gay_scally_lad.jpg , http://asian-dick.hornyfatties.com/average-penis-length.jpg , [above average: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_3EAPTZv3OuM/Sdo9GxY2GGI/AAAAAAAAANY/Bc3Qd8ua4p0/s400/1.bmp , http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/big.jpg , http://www.imagespenis.com/enter/subaug2%20(45)_small.jpg]

Erected Penis MINIMUM — MEDIUM — MAXIMUM
Length……………….  5.57 in………….. 6.35 in……….. 7.13 in
Circumference…….  4.67 in………….  5.01 in……….. 5.43 in
Summarizing we can affirm that penis size in the population ranges within
5.57 – 7.13 in.(as average).
I realize if yours is below average you could feel uncomfortable but, know that operationally and physiologically also a penis long 4 in. will do the same things that a longer penis does. Whether it becomes an angst for you then, when possible talk with a surgeon.
[two guys in comparison: http://www.smartbest.eu/dimensione-del-pene-3.jpg , some below average: http://www.the-penis-website.com/banners/6uy3a03prpn6_small.jpg , http://fetishclips.com/showimage.php?cid=166603 , http://twinks.eu/image/ut8_you-want-suck-it-sweet.jpg ]
How long should penis be when flaccid?
What is the average size for flabby penis?
0.8 – 4 in. and 3 as average
Average size of not-erect penis is 3 in. while size can range from 0.8 to 4 in. These are variable values and not-indicative of the erect size, fixed for every body. It means, if the own erect penis size is 6 in. – this size will be kept during erection – independently from the size when penis is slack. Vice versa, erect size isn’t linked with flaccid one, at all! For example, the 6 in. penis could be 4 in. long in the flaccid state or somebody else could have it 2 in. long but – the same –if the fixed erect size is 6, then both the penises will become 6 in. long during the erection. Ok? The only advantage having a longer flaccid penis concerns the (external) appearance. Thanks to the illiteracy, many persons consider lucky the guy and he will feel at ease when naked. Besides, take in account that the flaccid size is continuously depending on some factors like temperature, stress, health, drugs, etc. Cold brings sexual organs (scrotum mainly) to huddle up while hot to sprawl.
[Here for boy penis in the flaccid state: http://www.blogdelpene.com/micropene.jpg , Here about a man: http://fotos.fotosprivadas.com/2007_chicas/MATR23077/imagenes/mipene4.jpg ]
Penis size by race?
What is the average penis size for other populations?
RACE LENGTH
African/black
6.74 in.
Native American 6.49 in.
Middle Eastern 6.28 in.
European/white 6.26 in.
Hispanic 6.03 in.
Asian/Pacific
5.50 in.
Can I have sex by a little (below average) penis?
Can I have children with a small (below average) penis?
What about too short or too long penis?
Is penis size important?
Medically and evolutionary there is no problem because until the penetration and internal ejaculation is possible (fecundation by sexual act) any penis is good and able! On the other hand, he who has short (out average) penis will feel discomfort and psychologically aggrieved, aware that bigger penis could give more satisfaction during the intercourse. It’s told that women have different kinds of stimulations, the clitoral and the vaginal one. A bigger penis gives both of them enough to fulfil widely the woman. I add that aside from the length the circumference should be more important considering vagina conformation, at last. Thus, better a penis thicker than longer! Though, longer & thicker should be the best, of course! Anyway, independent from your penis size you are or will become a man able to have sex and children, so don’t worry.
Manhood or being male isn’t estimate by penis size!

How long should penis be during the development?
How long penis is by age?

Values by age can’t be an actual average for teens because puberty has no exact or fixed time to start and its course isn’t constant or equal for any boy.
However, here’s the most common average penis size by age:

Age ….  range
12…. 3,3 – 4,1 in.
13…. 4,9 – 5,3 in.
14…. 5,4 – 5.7 in.
15…. 5,9 – 6,1 in.
16…. 6,0 – 6,3 in.
17…. 6,1 – 6,5 in.
18…. 6,2 – 6,4 in.
The only consideration I can do here concerns the expectation any boy could foresee considering these value. I mean, whereas sexual development already is in progress, a 14-years- old boy with a penis 5 in. long then shouldn’t expect to get a penis above the average in the end of the development.
[sexual development in progress: http://www.usc.edu/student-affairs/Health_Center/adolhealth/largeimages/template_clip_image008.jpg , fast or precocious one: http://www.boypreview.com/naked_boys_pics/showfull.php?photo=35556 , just in the end: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_-7dqsX-Ijec/R_DI2avhUlI/AAAAAAAADU0/9ypc3qJfphg/s1600/VOL1308_03_27_08_128.jpg ]
How can I measure my penis?
How is penis measured, commonly?
Since flabby penis size is unimportant, it could be more interesting to measure it when hard. You need a measuring tape (better if with rigid blade) and putting its tip (the zero) on the pubis – where penis starts – then reel off the blade on the trunk until the glans (head). The orifice will show you the limit and the size indicated on the tape. Measuring it underneath is wrong and will give different values depending how much the tape will move the scrotum (balls) back.
[ http://www.penishints.com/assets/images/penis-length.gif , http://www.afraidtoask.com/images/measuretape.gif , http://www.thegrip.com/grip/measure.gif ]
Is the fertility depending on the penis size?
Can I have baby by a short penis?
Fertility has nothing to do with genital size but only with the semen discharged during the ejaculation. Usually, men get a simple “semen analysis” before marrying. Examples of parameters measured in a semen analysis are: sperm count, motility, morphology, volume, fructose level and pH. A low count or mobility can encumber the male fertility but there are some medical treatments for that! Vice versa, sometimes motility and vitality of sperms is so high that drops of sperm put near the vagina even can be risk for an unwanted pregnancy! For scientist, any penis ejaculating inside vagina is appropriate for fecundation!
What is the best penis size?
Do women like big penises?
Aside from the vaginal excitement coming from the penis rubbing inside the vagina duct, during sex the greatest pleasure comes from the clitoral excitement. Take in consideration that clitoris just is at the beginning of the vagina and so any short penises can rub it. “Pleasure” and “satisfaction” are very personal matters, so there is no fixed or exact penis size that can be considered as best. A penis 5.5 in. long can fulfil a woman while another could remain unsatisfied by a penis 7.8 in. long! As audience says, important is being able to “use” it better. I realize you are convinced that “longer” is better, but to certain extend only. Vagina isn’t a pothole endless! Very long penises (more than 8 in.) begin to be a problem and to hit against female cervix and uterus. Again, the average values look natural and more appropriate (from 5 to 7 in.) without leaving out the bigger “girth” that, as mentioned, is preferable. At last, apart any hypocrisy, one of the advantage of long penis is the possibility to carry out any Kama-Sutra positions and give self-determination/confidence to the subject.
Anyway, be yourself independently from your penis length!After this long talk, somebody even couldn’t be satisfied yet and still asking what the best size is! Whether I must specify a size at any cost, in my opinion the best could be – 7.5 x 5,4 in. –
Is there any medicine or device useful to lengthen penis?
Is possible enlarge penis?
As other formidable organs, penis is a very particular one. It is not a muscle and so no exercise can prolong it. If you look at its anatomy, note that inside there is a substance called “corpora cavernosa”, a pair of sponge-like regions of erectile tissue, which, when blood flows into, during excitement, bring penis to become hard. [Look here: http://www.penis–articles.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/increase-penis-size.gif , http://www.mhhe.com/socscience/sex/common/ibank/ibank/0045.jpg ]
In some cases, this structure even can be affected by injury. Anyway, there is no way to extend it. Only specific surgery can solve some grave case. Therefore, don’t waste money and time going after false promise as a lot of advertisements announce! They are anonymous sites where unknown people without scruple sell dreams and illusions only! I realize your trouble, but chill out and think….. if any drug or method really was effective, in your opinion, wouldn’t that ‘product’ be publicized widely and well-known in any scientific entourage and around?! Think to the blue pill for instance, in short time Viagra became a famous treatment for a common dysfunction, and well known everywhere! At least, two words about ‘Andropenis’ or similar devices and ‘Jelq’ manual exercise. Well, the first is a mechanical device that put penis in traction and step by step (should) enlarge the corpora cavernosa. Growth (should) occur due to the cellular multiplication of tissues subjected to the continuous force of traction. The same effect could be reached through some manual exercise called Jelq, which with patience and time (could) give some improvement. My opinion here is the same, though Jelq exercises are free while the device needs cash. Without any certain proof I get great doubts and you can’t rely on the attestations or hearsay found by internet! Whereas you think your penis is too small or you feel hung-up…. talk with your doctor (andrologist or urologist is better).

§ Some illness or penis dysfunction

Is my penis too curved?
Can penis bend upwards or downwards?
We aren’t all equal as well as our penises. Normally, penis should be straight and pointing (during erection) a little bit upwards.
[look here: http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/big-cock-close-up.jpg , http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/archive/9/95/20050214184923!Flaccid_and_erect_human_penis.jpg , http://en.wikivisual.com/images/2/2f/Penis_corrected.jpg ]
Anyway, some short bend (as banana or not more than 10-15 degrees) can be possible and independently from the direction (up, down, left or right), there is nothing to be worried.
[Acceptable bending: http://www.andrositalia.org/IMG/penecurvo3.jpg , http://www.penis-website.com/difference/bend1.jpg ]
Severe bend takes difficult masturbation or sexual intercourse and so should be treated. Sometimes a sudden curvature of the penis is a grave illness sign and the guy should get a visit ASAP.
[penises too curved: http://www.andrositalia.org/IMG/penecurvo4.jpg , http://www.andrositalia.org/IMG/pey2.jpg , http://www.peyronies-disease-help.com/peyronies-disease-treatment-pix15.jpg , http://www.peyronies-disease-help.com/picture-of-peyronies-disease26.jpg , http://www.peyronies-disease-help.com/picture-of-peyronies-disease19.jpg , http://www.penecurvo.net/images/p006_1_00.jpg , http://www.penis-website.com/difference/twist29_small.jpg ]
Why doesn’t foreskin uncover the glans completely?
Why can’t prepuce roll around penis?
Phimosis – this just is a very common dysfunction bringing a tight foreskin. Being too tight the prepuce can’t retract or move freely, covering the glans or rolling back as masturbation and sexual act imply. On others cases, foreskin can’t move further because is the Frenulum (the small fold of tissue securing the foreskin) to be too short. A short Frenulum may require a frenectomy or frenuloplasty to achieve normal mobility of the prepuce.Who gets short Frenulum has painful sexual intercourse and frenulum even can lacerate with bleeding (rarely it breaks completely). Phimosis can be slight or severe, but both need to be treated through surgery – either by a simple cut or a complete circumcision to eliminate the foreskin definitively. Such operation is necessary to avoid infection and give a complete functionality to the organ. Generally, these dysfunctions – as others concerning male external sexual organs – should be noticed by parents or doctor during childhood even! On the other hand, it’s opportune to intervene before or during the puberty to avoid bad penis shape and a troubled adolescence.

§ Scrotum & Testicles
What testicles are?
Testicles inside the scrotum produce the sperm, the male semen indispensable to fecundate female ovule – getting woman pregnant – and transfer our genetic code. Sperm (cum) comes out during the ejaculation, when man reach the orgasm, the most pleasant time in the end of the sexual act. Being so important any man has two testicles. [clip about ejaculation: Ejaculation Educational Demonstration.OGG , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ejaculation_Educational_Demonstration.OGG , ] [pictures: http://www.nightcharm.com/imagesblog/2007/10/big_gay_male_cum_shots.jpg , http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fc/Ejaculation_scatter_pattern.ogv/mid-Ejaculation_scatter_pattern.ogv.jpg , http://nibblebit.com/wp-admin/user_content/7132358bd3c1f11f54591cd04ac1bdf5.jpg , http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/wank-01.jpg]
How big should testicles be?
Why one testis is bigger than the other?
Testicular size as a proportion of body weight varies widely. In normal adult human males, testicular size ranges from the lower end of around 14 cm³ to the upper end larger than 35 cm³ (1,18 in. x 0,79 in. nearly). Testicles size can change for some reasons as – short of direct injury or subjecting them to adverse conditions, e.g., – higher temperature than they are normally accustomed to – they can be shrunk by competing against their intrinsic hormonal function through the use of externally administered steroidal hormones. Testicles are contained within an extension of the abdomen called the scrotum (sack) and it is most common for one testis to be greater and hang lower than the other. The percentage of men with a lower hanging right testis or left testis is about equal. This is due to differences in the vascular anatomical structure on the right and left sides, overall but, in particular scientists think it’s a way to avoid “balls” (nuts) to hit each other during the movements.
[testicles during the development: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/40/Testicular_size.jpg , testicles fully developed: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a4/Hanging_testicles.JPG , http://www.mensfaq.com/en/blog/wp-content/uploads/2006/09/_d.jpg ]
Is normal for my testicles to come up in the groin?
Why do I get one testis only in the sack?
Why my testicles move?
Criptorchidism is a medical term referring to absence from the scrotum of one or both testes. This usually represents failure of the testis to move, or “descend,” during fetal development or after birth, through the inguinal canal, into the scrotum. Undescended testis is the most common birth defect of male genitalia. Undescended testes are associated with reduced fertility, increased risk of testicular germ cell tumors and psychological problems when the boy is grown. Undescended testes are also more susceptible to testicular torsion and infarction and inguinal hernias. To reduce these risks, undescended testes are usually brought into the scrotum in infancy by a surgical procedure called orchiopexy. Later in time the operation is carried out and lower will be the possibility to recover the testis functionality. Although Criptorchidism nearly always refers to congenital absence or maldescent, a testis observed in the scrotum in early infancy can occasionally “reascend” (move back up) into the inguinal canal. A testis that can readily move or be moved between the scrotum and canal is referred to as retractile and is caused by inguinal canal not-closed as it should. During the development it’s a risk if testis remain too long in the groin. It’s normal for testicles to move inside the sack arriving till the groin though they don’t have to go out through the inguinal canal and remain in the groin.
[one or both undescended testis: http://draijazsoomro.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/left-undescended-testis.jpg , http://faculty.mdc.edu/jmcnair/undescended%20testis.jpg , http://www.tefvater.org/renal/images/undctest2.jpg , http://www.tefvater.org/renal/images/undctest2.jpg , http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/06/Hidden_testicles.JPG , http://www.meddean.luc.edu/lumen/MedEd/urology/udtexam.jpg ]
Do I have water in the scrotum?
Another common genitalia defect is the Hydrocele testis, an accumulation of clear fluid in one of the most internal membranes containing a testicle. A hydrocele feels like a small fluid filled and transparent balloon inside the scrotum. It is smooth, and is mainly in front of one of the testes. Hydroceles vary greatly in size. Hydroceles are normally painless and harmless, and in children usually, it is present before or after birth and caused by liquid moving from the groin through the inguinal canal while testis descend. Others causes may be a physical trauma, infection or tumor. Sometime the liquid is absorbed slowly in the time but to avoid testes damage it’s opportune intervene before the puberty, at least. The accumulation should generally be removed surgically.

SOME QUESTION ABOUT SEX COMMON AMONG TEENS (First part)

Brainstorm came when some years ago I began to answer some question on “Yahoo!Answers” web-page and realized how many doubts about sex and sexuality boys (but men and women too) have, while some question was so repetitive to become intolerable. Though sex is a topic very diffused, illiteracy and fallacy aren’t unusual. It’s not my intent to rise on a chair as a professor, having – on the other side – neither qualifications nor titles for that, but I only want to put at other’s disposal my knowledge and experience, hoping it can be useful for someone then, giving the input to delve into. Anyway, whoever can e-mail me for more clarification or advices!

Development & Height
At what age the sexual development starts?When does puberty begin?
At what age the sexual development ends?
At what age the growth ends?
Till what age can I grow (height)?
What is Wet Dream?
How avoid nocturnal erections?
Please consider those ages as indicative. Height and sexual development are connected because they have their spurt during a particular time in human life called PUBERTY. From the birth and till the start of the puberty the development is slow but continuous, becoming faster just during the puberty and lasting 2-4 years long. Then it decreases till to and stop definitively. During this time any child becomes a man physically.
For male subjects puberty starts later compared to female and polls say that for male the average ranges among 12 – 14 years. But no worry if it may start a little sooner or later. Anyway, if at 15 years old you note no sign of sexual development yet it’s the case to talk with a doctor. Most evident signs of puberty in progress are the increase of the tallness (in some case it’s so fast to be called “spurt of growth”), of the sexual organs, the growth of hair on the body (but on pubic area and on lip mainly), the change of voice tone (by lowest pitch). Usually, not longer than 16-18 years the bones growth slows down until to stop at 19-20 inexorably!
There is no way to know in advance the definitive height. It’s a genetic issue and teenagers can do a rough expectation only looking at their progenitor height considering that he can’t hope to be 6.23 ft. if his dad, grandfather and great grandparents were not more than 5.57 ft. tall!
While the growth goes on also the body shape changes, due to the increasing muscular mass but the great number of hormones bring some psychological and mental changes too. This particular advanced time of puberty is called ADOLESCENCE when most boys can feel depressed irascible discouraged insecure listless or negligent. For someone it becomes time to evade, break with tradition, protest or becomes introvert. Both parental and social relationships become difficult and unstable. Nothing to worry however it will subside!
Adolescence is time when sexual development is thriving and so erection and sexual excitement increase. Very common are the “wet dreams” and nocturnal erections (or spontaneous erections) due to the high testosterone flowing in the blood during the night mainly. Whether they are a concern for you you could come out starting masturbation or having a more constant sexual life. For somebody is useful carrying out masturbation before going to bed. About masturbation, in general more mature and up-and-coming boy starts by himself this new experience while somebody else postpone it until the comparison with friends and further knowledge bringing him to try later.
Is it possible growing more?
Can I become taller?
How can I become taller?
What is the average (American) height?
Doctors can intervene for helping someone to increase the tallness only if his development isn’t in the end yet and better if during the infancy. Specific hormonal treatments together some sport (swimming, basketball, volleyball, etc.) can be useful for this purpose. Useless asking to get taller at 18 or 20 years old! It’s too late!
Somebody – verging on the stupidity – even asked for getting longer arms only! Probably, in the future by genetic engineering & robotic this will be possible. Anyway, some American poll, comparing age and height says:
10 years . .. . . . . . . 55.67 in. 11 years. . . . . . . . . 58.54 in. 12 years . . . . . . . . 60.94 in. 13 years . . . . . . . . 63.03 in. 14 years . . . . . . . . 66.34 in. 15 years . . . . . . . . 68.43 in. 16 years . . . . . . . . 69.02 in. 17 years . . . . . . . . 69.02 in. 18 years.. . . . . . . . 69.37 in. 19 years . . . . . . . . 69.49 in. 20 years……… 62.99 – 70.87 in. (average)
Anatomy & Penis size
First, these are the principal external parts of the penis you must know:
Glans – practically is the head of the penis, often the biggest part where the urethra ends by the orifice where pee and sperm come out.

COMMON TEENS QUESTIONS ABOUT SEX

(Last part)

.

Why can’t I uncover the glans?
Why don’t foreskin move?
Why is prepuce too tight?
Most commons penis dysfunctions, specially during the puberty, are Phimosis and Frenulum testicles.
Phimosis is a condition where, in men, the male foreskin cannot be fully retracted from the head of the penis because too tight. It can be a congenital anomaly (Physiologic phimosis) occurring naturally during the birth or coming later during the growth (Pathologic phimosis). The Physiologic phimosis usually isn’t severe and spontaneously dissolve with intermittent foreskin retraction and erections, so that as males grow, phimosis resolves with age. Poor hygiene and recurrent episodes of balanitis or balanoposthitis lead to scarring of preputial orifices, leading to pathologic phimosis (true phimosis). During the sexual development while the penis grows the tighter foreskin becomes as a noose around the glans even hindering its natural development. Both Phimosis in older children and adults can vary in severity, with some subject able to retract their foreskin partially (“relative phimosis”), and some completely unable to retract their foreskin even in the flaccid state (“full phimosis”). Unluckily, most boys realize something is wrong during the adolescence only, when masturbation starts or even later during the first sexual intercourse. Phimosis is a risk factor for urinary retention and carcinoma of the penis, aside from an unsatisfying sexual activity. According to its severity, common treatments include steroid creams, preputioplasty, manual stretching and circumcision (complete prepuce obliteration).
[severe phimosis: http://www.pediatriconcall.com/forpatients/commonchild/Genital_problems/images/difficulty_passing_urin1.jpg , http://urologycentre.com.sg/phimosis.jpg , http://www.foreskin.org/phi1.jpg , http://tightforeskin.org/2.jpg , http://tightforeskin.org/3.jpg , ],[normal retraction of the prepuce: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/26/A_Foreskin_Retraction_Series.JPG ]
Frenulum breve (or short frenulum) is the condition in which the FRENULUM is too short and restricts the movement of the prepuce. Often guys confuse phimosis with short frenulum because both malformations involve the prepuce movement, despite the short frenulum is discovered more after the development and mainly during the first sexual intercourse when the movement of the foreskin becomes painful and some laceration even can give bleeding. The condition may be easily treated by surgery, while slight cases through stretching exercises and steroid creams. Anyway, phimosis or frenulum breve, it always is important to talk with the doctor and get a treatment for having a serene adolescence and a better sexual life.

What testicles are?
Who doesn’t know this, testicles are the sexual organs able to produce sperm, the male semen containing our genetic code. Sperm comes out during the orgasm through the ejaculation and if discharged in the female vagina could meet an ovule and fecundate it. The ejaculation is the most pleasant time of the sexual intercourse or masturbation, giving high satisfaction and enjoyment.
[a clip: Ejaculation Educational Demonstration.OGG , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ejaculation_Educational_Demonstration.OGG ], [pictures: http://www.nightcharm.com/imagesblog/2007/10/big_gay_male_cum_shots.jpg , http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fc/Ejaculation_scatter_pattern.ogv/mid-Ejaculation_scatter_pattern.ogv.jpg , http://nibblebit.com/wp-admin/user_content/7132358bd3c1f11f54591cd04ac1bdf5.jpg , http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/wank-01.jpg]

Why do I feel pain in the testicles?
Painful testicles.
What is blue balls syndrome?

An occasional not-too-intense pain in the scrotum may not be much to worry about, but there are some cases to know.
Another kind a common genitalia defect is the Varicocele, an abnormal enlargement of the veins in the scrotum draining the testicles. Symptoms of Varicocele include – dragging and aching pain in the scrotum – feeling of heaviness – visible or palpable enlarged vein. To avoid infertility or shrinkage (atrophy) of the testicles the Varicocele may need to be surgically tied off.
[ http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/Varicocele.jpg , http:/http://sakurai.lv/varicocele-symptoms&page=4 , http://www.andrology.com/images/diagnosis.jpg , http://www.ilcannocchiale.it/mediamanager/sys.user/55497/varicocele1.jpg ]
More painful is the Orchitis, a condition of the testicles involving inflammation, swelling and frequently infection. Symptoms of Orchitis are similar to those of testicular torsion and can include:
ejaculation of blood – blood in the urine (Hematuria) – pain – visible swelling of a testicle or both and often of the inguinal lymph nodes on the affected side too. Instead, in the Testicular Torsion the spermatic cord that provides the blood supply to a testicle becomes twisted, cutting off the blood supply, often causing Orchalgia. Prolonged testicular torsion will result in the death of the testicle and surrounding tissues. While torsion is more frequent among adolescents, it should be considered in all cases where there is testicular pain. Torsion occurs more frequently in patients who do not have evidence of inflammation or infection. Testicular Torsion is a medical emergency that needs immediate treatment.
Blue balls” is a slang term for a temporary fluid congestion in the testicles and prostate region caused by prolonged sexual arousal in the human male. It is often accompanied by a cramp-like ache of prostatic congestion and pain/tenderness of the testes. The cause is the prolonged sexual stimulation of the erect penis (intentional or unintentional), either by direct or indirect contact, that does not result in orgasm and ejaculation. This can, in some circumstances, be a consensual sexual act as part of erotic sexual denial.
During arousal the parasympathetic nervous system increases its inputs to the genital tissues, resulting in increased blood flow to the testicles and prostate areas. As this happens, other fluid outflow muscles constrict, causing less bodily fluid to leave the area than enter, ensuring a high enough regional blood pressure to allow a sustained erection for penetration during sexual intercourse.
If orgasm is not achieved, blood and lymphatic fluid tend to pool, and the blood becomes oxygen-deprived. The technical term for this is vasocongestion. If ejaculation does not occur there may be a lingering sensation of heaviness, annoyance or pain, like a hit to the testicles, but from the inside. The easiest way to relieve (slowly) the symptoms of blue balls is through an orgasm. The resultant ejaculation jump-starts the sympathetic nervous system, which increases blood flow through the penis area, dissipating the fluid buildup.
.
Why do I feel pain after ejaculation?
Sense of discomfort after the orgasm.

During ejaculation, the two ducts known as ‘vas deferens’ contract to propel sperm from the epididymis where it was stored up to the ampullae at the top end of the vas deferens. The beginning of emission is typically experienced as a “point of no return,” also known as point of ejaculatory inevitability. The sperm then passes through the ejaculatory ducts and is mixed with fluids from the seminal vesicles, the prostate, and the bulbo-urethral glands to form the semen. During ejaculation proper, the semen is ejected through the urethra with some rhythmic contractions. The force and amount of ejaculate vary widely from male to male and is depending on sphincter of the bladder, urethral sphincter and pelvic floor muscle work. As soon as discharge is coming, testicles start to reinstate testosterone level for blocking prostatic fluid production, muscles contractions and testes stimulation. In case of lower testosterone amount – as consecutive sexual acts could bring sometimes – such a tradeoff don’t occur and a sense of discomfort with pain may occur in groin area or inside genitals.

Why any hit in the scrotums is very painful?
Why testicles are so sensitive to pain?
What is the sack purpose?

We all know that whenever a guy get even accidentally kicked in the nuts they can barely move for like at least 5 minutes if not more.
We all have probably come to find out that the testicles are kind of vulnerable and can be injured in a variety of ways.
The human body is complex — “irreducibly” complex and perfect as only an “Intelligent Design” could do.
Despite that, strangely the two testicles are hanging in an external sack, out in the open and so completely exposed. [ http://content.worldgroups.com/GRP008/GrpPhotos/M/MALEART/070813/110325000.JPG ]

Why that?
The ideal temperature for sperm production happens to be about three degrees Celsius lower that normal body temperature. By hanging the testicles in an external sack, the testicles can more easily maintain this lower temperature. That’s why scrotum size even can change by temperature and body health state.
Besides, to defend them “Nature” equipped genitals with very sensitive nerves, as like as it happens with the female vulva (clitoris) too. Here’s why the scrotum is very sensitive and even a minor injury can cause pain or discomfort. The good news is that because the testicles are loosely attached to the body and are made of a spongy material, they’re able to absorb most collisions without permanent damage. Testicles, although sensitive, can bounce back pretty quickly and minor injuries rarely have long-term effects. Also, sexual function or sperm production will most likely not be affected if you have a testicular injury.
You’ll definitely feel pain if your testicles are struck or kicked, and you might also feel nauseous for a short time. If it’s a minor testicular injury, the pain should gradually subside in less than an hour and any other symptoms should go away. In the meantime, you can do a few things to help yourself feel better such as take pain relievers, lie down, gently support the testicles with supportive underwear, and apply ice packs to the area.
In the end I want give anybody, young and older, an important advice. The testicular self- examination (TSE) is an easy way for guys to check their own testicles to make sure there aren’t any unusual lumps or bumps — which can be the first sign of testicular cancer. You can do a TSE during or right after a shower or bath examining one testicle at a time. Use both hands to gently roll each testicle between the fingers checking the whole surface. Exam the epididymis too (the sperm-carrying tube), it feels soft, rope-like, and slightly tender to pressure, and is located at the top of the back part of each testicle. This is a normal lump. If you notice any swelling, lumps, or changes in the size or color of the testicle, or if you have any pain or achy areas in your groin, let your doctor know right away.

Our semen, the sperm
.
…………………………
What color sperm has to be?
Is normal if my sperm is yellow/red?
Normal semen is light gray-white (whitish), not creamy, green, yellow or red; those colours might suggest infection, while red colour supposes blood in the ejaculate even. However, people’s perceptions of subtle colours can be quite variable, so nothing could be wrong if your discharge look yellowish for you.
……………………….
How many sperms (SPERMATOZOA) should be in the semen?
The components of semen come from two sources: sperm, and “seminal plasma”. Seminal plasma, in turn, is produced by contributions from the seminal vesicle, prostate, and bulbourethral glands.
Seminal plasma of humans contains a complex range of organic and inorganic constituents.
Approximately 200- to 500-million spermatozoa (also called sperm or spermatozoans), produced in the testes, are released per ejaculation. Sperm count measures how many sperm are in a man’s ejaculate. Anything over 20 million sperm per milliliter is considered normal. A vasectomy is considered successful if the sample is azoospermic, or if only rare non-motile sperm are observed (fewer than 100,000 per milliliter).

How much sperm should I discharge normally?
Is it possible to increase my amount of sperm?
How much time does sperm need to be produced?
The amount of ejaculate varies widely from male to male. A normal ejaculation may contain anywhere from 1.5 to 5 milliliters. Adult ejaculate volume is affected by the amount of time that has passed since the previous ejaculation. Larger ejaculate volumes are seen with greater durations of abstinence. However, an Australian study has suggested a positive correlation between prostate cancer and infrequent ejaculation and/or prostate milking, which performs essentially the same function. The amount of semen as well as the sperms mobility can be increased by some specific medical treatment, advised by the urologist.
Sperm production is medically called spermatogenesis and happens in the testicles.
Normally, the sperm takes 70–90 days to mature- so the sperm produced by ejaculation today started its course of development about 3 months ago!
But its production, quality and maturation time may differ from internal and external factors. Low temperature favours a faster rate of production and maturation. Diseases/depression/stress and strain may cause a slowdown. Weight loss, tight clothing, hot environment, drugs, etc., can lower sperm production and motility. Sperm has its own life period, i.e., even if it is not used, it will die on its own and then is absorbed by the body.
How thick my sperm has to be?
Sperm has to be thick enough, not too watery or too dense. A way to check it is the coagulation time.
Semen coagulates within seconds after ejaculation and then liquefies or decoagulates about 15-40 minutes later. You can just make this test alone – if your coagulated semen does not liquefy within that time, your sperm may be trapped in the cottage cheese-like jelly (too thick). That just is due to the high viscosity (liquid flow) or hyperviscosity that could affect the fertility potential.
Since the prostate gland secretes the chemical required for liquefaction, surely there could be a prostate infection, responded to antibiotic therapy.
What does sperm contain?
Is sperm smell normal?
Can sperm be eaten (swallowed)?
What is pre-cum (pre-sperm)?

The seminal plasma provides a nutritive and protective medium for the spermatozoa during their journey through the female reproductive tract.
The components and contributions of semen are:
Coming from Testes
Approximately 200- to 500-million spermatozoa
Coming from seminal vesicle
amino acids, citrate, enzymes, flavins, fructose (the main energy source of sperm cells, which rely entirely on sugars from the seminal plasma for energy), phosphorylcholine, prostaglandins (involved in suppressing an immune response by the female against the foreign semen), proteins, vitamin C;
Coming from Prostate
acid phosphatase, citric acid, fibrinolysin, prostate specific antigen, proteolytic enzymes, zinc (a zinc deficiency may result in lowered fertility because of increased sperm fragility);
Coming from bulbourethral glands
galactose, mucus (serve to increase the mobility of sperm cells in the vagina and cervix by creating a less viscous channel for the sperm cells to swim through, and preventing their diffusion out of the semen. Contributes to the cohesive jelly-like texture of semen.), pre-ejaculate, sialic acid.
All those substances give sperm the characteristic smell and taste that, as like as the composition, can’t be changed by the nutrition!
Sperm can be eaten, of course and isn’t poisonous or caloric more than a very little toffee! [http://www.human-sperm-banks.com/free_porn/human_sperm_banks_files/sperm_r4_c1.jpg , http://www.boyspissingandcumming.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/eat-my-cum.jpg]
Anyway, through the sperm any STD or HIV can be transmitted! Take care!
Pre-ejaculate (also known as pre-ejaculatory fluid or Cowper’s fluid, and colloquially as pre-cum) is the clear, colorless, viscous fluid that is issued from the urethra of a man’s penis when he is sexually aroused. The fluid is usually secreted by Cowper’s glands during arousal, masturbation, foreplay or at an early stage during sex, some time before the man fully reaches orgasm and semen is ejaculated. Pre-ejaculatory fluid prepares the urethra for the passage of semen by neutralizing acidity due to any residual urine. It also lubricates the movement of the penis and the foreskin over the glans. The amount of fluid that the human male can issue varies widely among individuals, from imperceptible amounts to a copious flow. There have been no large-scale studies of sperm in pre-ejaculate, but some smaller-scale studies suggest that any sperm present may be ineffectual at causing pregnancy.
.
What are the ‘wet dreams’?
Why do I get hard-on during the night?
Is it normal getting up with erect penis in the morning?
Nocturnal erection and emission are common among teens.
A nocturnal emission is an ejaculation of semen experienced during sleep and is also called a “wet dream”, an involuntary orgasm, or simply an orgasm during sleep.
The frequency of nocturnal emissions is highly variable. Some men have experienced large numbers of nocturnal emissions as teenagers, while some men have never experienced one (probably so occasional to let them remember nothing). Teenagers wet dreams are due to the sexual development in progress during puberty time, which just is carrying out a hormonal storm having no other similar event in human life.
That’s why the nocturnal emission is an event circumscribed to the teen age time mainly while the nocturnal erection in men, occurring regularly during any time of their existence, overall is a natural common fact due to the bigger amount of testosterone circulating in the blood during the sleep. It even becomes a natural way for urologist to check the erectile functionality (about ED) of the patient.
Despite wet dreams are most common during teenage and early adult years, they may happen any time after puberty. They may or may not be accompanied by erotic dreams, and the emission may happen without erection even. It is possible to wake up during, or to simply sleep through, the ejaculation in what is sometimes called a “sex dream”. Women can also experience orgasms and excitement in their sleep. Guys who experience wet dreams more (or less) frequently than others usually do not have any sort of disease or problem. No physical harm (beyond the inconvenience of the little semen ejaculate) is caused by the event and it is not symptomatic of any underlying problem, independently from the frequency.
The frequency that one has nocturnal emissions has not been conclusively linked to one’s frequency of masturbation. Widely-known sex researcher Alfred Kinsey found some correlation between the frequencies of masturbation and the frequencies of nocturnal dreams. In general the males who have the highest frequencies of nocturnal emissions may have somewhat lower rates of masturbation. And probably they feel a lower masturbating wish because the involuntary frequent emissions. But I think the situation could reverse then starting – on the contrary – a regular sexual life. During adolescence sexual arousal often is so strong and continuous to urge teens to wank regularly. Anyway, the nocturnal erection with emission can’t be compared to the actual masturbation with ejaculation, where the sexual desire comes quite satisfied through a felt final discharge.

Masturbation
.
How many times a week (a day) can I masturbate?
Is masturbation harmful?
Can old people still having masturbation at their age?
Am I addicted to masturbation & how getting rid of it?

Masturbation is the most common form of autoeroticism and refers to sexual stimulation (manually or by use of objects or tools) especially of one’s own genitals, common to members of both sexes. It’s not uncommon finding out children playing with their genitalia and by excitement discover their body.
Concerning teens, during and after puberty the sexual craving may be so high to bring masturbation to happen and become a repetitive urge even. But the need to masturbate can happen at any time in people life also if the desire tends to decrease with the age. Frequency of masturbation is determined by many factors, e.g., one’s resistance to transient sexual tension, hormone levels influencing sexual arousal, sexual habits established during youth, peer influences, health, intensity of the ejaculatory urge, and one’s attitude to masturbation formed by culture. A public Canadian poll of 2004 showed that an overwhelming majority of the males – 81% – began masturbating between the ages of 10 and 15. It is not uncommon however, to begin much earlier, and this is more frequent among females essentially. Anyway, recent studies have shown that the peak age for male masturbation (or sex activity, overall) is around 18-25. During these ages guys can achieve masturbation of up to 18 times per day or more, and is also most likely to become addicted to it during these ages, even when in sexually active relationships. Adolescent youths report being able to masturbate to ejaculation around six times per day and
Masturbation is becoming accepted as a healthy practice and safe method for sharing pleasure without some of the dangers that can accompany intercourse. On the other side, in different cultures masturbation among teenagers and younger even, is encouraged and often as rite or ritual with the participation of other persons.
It’s time to bury some untrue and old beliefs by now bizarre “metropolitan legend” only. I means the ones affirming that masturbation gives “blindness” or “vacuity”, “infertility” or “lack of sperm”, “shorter penis” or “less growth”, “sex addiction” or “less stamina for real intercourse”, etc. etc. etc.
Masturbation as sex overall, isn’t bad and unhealthy, at all!
Aside from the high pleasure or gratification that sex activity gives, while sexual climax, from masturbation or otherwise, leaves one in a relaxed and contented state, sex also is well-known to be healthy.
An Australian research team concluded that frequent masturbation by males appears to help prevent the development of prostate cancer.
A study published in 1997 found that myocardial ischemia and myocardial infarction can be triggered by sexual activity, and recently which helps circulation in general as a cardiovascular workout.
Scientists think masturbation can relieve depression, stress and lead to a higher sense of self-worth.
The physical benefits of masturbation (and orgasm) create heightened arousal, while epinephrine courses through your body, producing the flushed face, shallow breath and post-climactic euphoria.
Masturbation can also be particularly useful in relationships where one partner wants more sex than the other, providing a balancing effect and thus a more harmonious relationship.
It is also seen as a sexual technique that protects individuals from the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases, easily obtained and sustained over time and everywhere.
Many people see masturbation as an effective, natural cure for insomnia, particularly when one masturbates in bed. For who believes to have got some dependence, masturbating frequently presents no physical, mental or emotional risk in itself. If sex is like an obsession for you, masturbation isn’t the cause but just a consequence of a possible psychological imbalance. You should look at your life, mind and position towards the others, trying to find the actual problem. As a psychological issue any distraction or amusement could help, together a more active social/collective life to divert attention from the sexual concern. At last, every boy has to realize that puberty is a temporary event and with the age that “urge” will come down.

Practically, how is the masturbation performed?
Where can I masturbate?
What are the masturbation techniques?

Once for the most boys the masturbation was a action coming naturally and carried out instinctively.
Despite we all were ignorant of sexual topic, our arm reached out and the hand – once grabbed the cock – became to move rhythmically to-and-fro while the prepuce roll & unroll fast.
Nowadays, many boys already get knowledge and before starting ask for the way to proceed, while somebody even is looking for different techniques. I note guys today have recourse to oils, massages, dildos, Prostate stimulation, etc…..all right, if sex is a need or a pleasant time it’s opportune to overachieve then!

[a clip: http://antveral.myblog.it/media/01/01/2963003120.gif , https://italiots.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/j1.gif]
A number of factors and personal preferences influence masturbation techniques, while only imagination can put limits.
In the time, I have read many different methods around with some funny & odd even, but everybody gets his preferred way while the variables to combine are a lot (with or without hands, with cream/oil, stand or laid, together or alone, at home or around, with tools, etc. etc.), where only the imagination will put limits.

Where or what is the better time for that?
I say where it’s possible and when you want, of course!
In the restroom, in the shower, in own room, in the bed, in any other place one can be alone or with the door closed. Morning, midday or night is unimportant and you should do it when you feel the need or when it’s possible to perform it, obviously.

The Orgasm


How to prolong the sexual intercourse?
How to control the early ejaculation?
There are wide variations in how long sexual stimulation can last before ejaculation occurs.
During sexual intercourse or masturbation, most males will find it difficult to resist the psychological temptation to continue the stimulation of the penis to the point of ejaculation once the feeling of orgasm becomes imminent. The beginning of emission is typically experienced as a “point of no return,” also known as point of ejaculatory inevitability. When a man ejaculates in a very short time or before he wants to it is called premature ejaculation (PE) or early ejaculation. If a man is unable to ejaculate in a timely manner after prolonged sexual stimulation, in spite of his desire to do so, it is called delayed ejaculation or anorgasmia. An orgasm that is not accompanied by ejaculation is known as a dry orgasm. Most men experience a lag time between the ability to ejaculate consecutively, and this lag time varies among men. Few guys are able to have consecutively acts even. Age also affects the recovery time; younger men typically recover faster than older men. During this refractory period it is difficult or impossible to attain an erection, because the sympathetic nervous system counteracts the effects of the parasympathetic nervous system. It’s thought this just gets a genetic cause involving testosterone cycle too and there is no treatment useful to change situation.
Some sex researchers define PE as occurring if the man ejaculates before his partner achieves orgasm while others define as occurring when a lack of ejaculatory control interferes with sexual or emotional well-being in one or both partners. Under this consideration, Early Ejaculation is the most common sexual problem in men, affecting 77% of men. Some study let suppose a genetic link to certain forms of premature ejaculation also if Psychological factors also commonly contribute to premature ejaculation. Interpersonal dynamics strongly contribute to sexual function, and premature ejaculation can be caused by a lack of communication between partners, hurt feelings, or unresolved conflicts that interfere with the ability to achieve emotional intimacy. Depending on severity, premature ejaculation symptoms can be significantly reduced. In mundane cases, treatments are focused on gradually training and improving mental habituation to sex and physical development of stimulation control. In clinical cases, various medications are being trialled to help slow down the speed of the arousal response. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressants have been shown to delay ejaculation in men treated for different psychiatry disorders. Therefore, the study about those antidepressants still is in progress. Around there are some methods to control PE as to have longer foreplay and stop sexual act at the point when the man first feels he is about to ejaculate, usually within the two minute point, he, and his partner pauses with intercourse completely.

Vagina

How long is vagina?
In common speech, the term “vagina” is often used inaccurately to refer to the vulva or female genitals generally; strictly speaking, the vagina is a specific internalstructure and the vulva is the exterior
genitalia only. The human vagina is an elastic muscular canal that extends from the cervix to the vulva. Although there is wide anatomical variation, the average vagina (for white women) is 6-7 inches in length, while its elasticity allows it to widen and lengthen when stimulated.

It’s remarkably elastic and can stretches to many times its normal diameter as during vaginal birth i.e. or reaching about 8 in. in length!

Is the G-spot real?
An erogenous zone referred to commonly as the G-spot is located at the anterior wall of the vagina, about five centimeters in from the entrance. Some women experience intense pleasure if the it is stimulated appropriately during sexual activity. A G-Spot orgasm may be responsible for female ejaculation, leading some doctors and researchers to believe that G-spot pleasure comes from the Skene’s glands, a female homologue of the prostate, rather than any particular spot on the vaginal wall, so some researchers deny the existence of the G-spot.
.
How do girls masturbate?
Yes, why not?
Usually masturbation involve the clitoris which when touched (fingering) gives a great pleasure. Many women use some dildo or vibrator to get a greater pleasure by a more comfortable way to masturbate. These devices can be used for getting penetration becoming a penis replacement but, in this case if you are a virgin girl should think about virginity because dildo or vibrator if stuck will break hymen inexorably.

If the woman is pregnant, is sex still possible?
Is sexual intercourse possible during pregnancy?

Two pregnancies can’t happen at the same time!
For the couple, pregnancy even becomes the change for having sex freely, finally without contraception.
During first months the couple has no particular care to follow and sex can be carried out as long and numerous as they want, unless woman is having a difficult pregnancy or a risky one.
During the last months, the same large belly will be an obstacle and they both should take care having “calm” sexual play.

Is it advisable wearing condom only when the ejaculation is arriving?
Is it sure if I wear condom during the intercourse?
Are there any risk to ejaculate out the vagina?

We have to differentiate the contraceptive methods from the protection against any infection (STD, HIV etc.). Any stable couple or married ones will feel more the problem about the contraception and to avoid illness every person should use condom during any sexual intercourse. The questions and the answers, here, only will concern the protection against the pregnancy. To avoid pregnancy condom as the contraceptive pill is a very safe way. But for that any guy should follow some simple rules. Condom has to be worn correctly, should be kept for entire act and can’t be used for more than one intercourse. Usually the intercourse isn’t very long, but in the case it exceeds the “average” time, the common sense advises to check the condom condition, from time to time. I realize condom is a damned contraption putting down penis feeling & stimulation and whereas possible we all try to do without.
Generally we all know our body with its reactions and so any man knows if the sexual stimulation brings him to produce a significant amount of pre-cum during the coitus. In these cases, despite there is no sure information about the presence of sperms in the pre-cum, man should take in account such a possibility too. On the contrary, a man – who already know he usually is leaking few or no pre-sperm – could try to wear condom only in the middle of the action or far from the orgasm at least.
That just is better than the “coitus interruptus” (also known as withdrawal or the pull out method), in which, during sexual intercourse, the penis is removed from the vagina just prior the ejaculation. Undoubtedly, risk is more but the primary cause of failure of the withdrawal method is the lack of self-control of those using it.
During the fertile time, any woman should pay attention to the sexual intercourse agree that any little drop of sperm put inside vagina or near vulva even, becomes a great risk for the fertilization. About sperm, anybody should know that the microscopic spermatozoa are able to move and live only under some fixed conditions. Once out, sperms can die in few minutes or stay alive for 3 days at most. Besides, the discharge of sperm in the anal or oral intercourse can’t give pregnancy, at all. Stomach and intestine get nothing to do with female ovule and uterus, where fecundation occurs.

Are the female orgasms similar to male ones?
Do girls also have ejaculation?

An orgasm (sexual climax) is the conclusion of the plateau phase of the sexual response cycle, and is experienced by both males and females. Orgasm is characterized by intense physical pleasure and satisfaction, accompanied by quick cycles of muscle contraction in the lower pelvic muscles. After orgasm, humans often feel tired and a need to rest. This is attributed to the release of prolactin.
Anyway, between the two sexes there are some differences. In men we know what orgasm represents, but it’s important highlight now, that male orgasm is tightly linked with the ejaculation (semen emission), that any man has “refractory period”, the recovery phase after orgasm during which it is physiologically impossible to experience continued arousal or additional orgasms (aside few different cases). The refractory period varies widely between individuals, ranging from minutes to days.
Instead, according to the average times, women need usually more time for achieve an orgasm and female ones lasts much longer than that of the male. On the other hand, it’s not uncommon the case of women having no orgasms and suffering with frigidity. Women have no refractory period and so even can experience a second orgasm soon after the first. Somebody can even follow this with additional consecutive orgasms and this is known as multiple orgasms. After the initial orgasm, subsequent climaxes may be stronger or more pleasurable as the stimulation accumulates. That’s why it’s told that through a longer sexual act there is the possibility to satisfied more the partner. Women have no ejaculation – intending it as semen discharge! – because the female “semen” is represented by the ovule produced once a month in the ovary. But many women present a sort of ejaculation – intended as emission of liquid – we can call it female ejaculation (also known colloquially as squirting or gushing) referring to the expulsion of more or less noticeable amounts of clear fluid by paraurethral ducts and/or urethra during orgasm. It is, it seems the rhythmic contractions of pelvic muscle during orgasm that expels the accumulated fluid as at least one constituent of female ejaculation. The amount of fluid released can be considerable, through repeated filling and emptying of the glands during orgasm.

Virginity

What virginity is?
Do men lose virginity?
Is possible to try out if a guy have lost virginity?

Virginity is a term used as an expression of purity. In its most common context, it is a concept that refers to the state of a person never having engaged in sexual intercourse.
The status of virginity is respected and valued in certain societies as a virtue, particularly when there are religious views regarding sexual conduct before marriage. While the act of losing one’s virginity, that is, of a first sexual experience, is a formal and conventional event for men, it becomes a physic event for women because a specific organ called “hymen”. Among human females, the hymen is a membrane, part of the vulva, which partially occludes the entrance to the vagina which stretches, or is sometimes torn when the woman first engages in sexual intercourse. The human hymen can vary widely in thickness, shape, and flexibility. That because there may be a more or less evident haemorrhage after the defloration. Once the hymen is broken, there’s no way to fix it again naturally.
The presence of an intact membrane has historically been seen as physical evidence of virginity in the broader technical sense. The presence of a broken hymen may therefore indicate that the vagina has been penetrated but also that it was broken via physical activity or the use of a dildo (penetration).
In males, there is no physically indicator or organ of virginity and it only remains a colloquial term to point the absence of a complete sexual intercourse, mainly oriented to the “penetrative act”. Therefore, any “penile penetration” (anal or vaginal) towards a partner should entail, colloquially, the lost of (virtual) male virginity.

How is possible to check if a girl is virgin?
Since female virginity is depending on hymen integrity, it just is possible checking that. However, unless you know exactly female sexual organ anatomy, only a gynaecologist can achieve such a control.

Are anal or oral act dangerous?

If we refer to the possibility to fertilize a girl, NO, as I told previously, anal or oral act gets nothing to do with vagina. They, instead, may be dangerous for STD or HIV infections. Such acts, clearly, have nothing to do with female virginity too!

PENIS SIZE BY COUNTRY

Published October 19, 2011 by Tony

MEN GENITALIA LENGHTS


The “TargetMap” website released a penis average length world map, using colors to indicate the lengths of the men in 115 different countries and taking the most recent data, whereas possible, by surveys or studies but also through sources that could have no scientific value (as the self-reported measurements).

Amongst them, Africa and Central/Southern America’s “performance” were the best (17.93 cm in Congo), while Asian, as usually, in the last position (Korea at 9.66 cm.). Quite disappointing data for USA, while Italy reaches a remarkable 29th position, though not the first in Europe.

Before you give a look at the map, please note that it refers to sexual male organ in erection state and apart from the several studies, anyone in the world agrees that the world average length can be considered the one between 5.2 – 6 in. in length. The consensus on the circumference is rather typical, about 1.54 in, while it’s well-known that circumcised men get on average 0,315 in smaller penis compared with uncut compatriots.
Someone has to say about the veracity of some survey because if we consider China, which has the highest number of population in the world, (and with an average penis length of 4.29 in), the largest number of participants would bring as result in an average lower than the real.

For the curious, the current (documented!) record holder about the “man with the biggest penis in the world” still belongs to Mr. Jonah Falcon, born in Brooklyn (New York) in 1970. The measures, officially documented when measured by a British TV in 2006, reported a length of 13.5 in (34.3 cm.)!!
