Turns out, there’s a lot more to his member than meets the eye. Apart from it’s pretty damn impressive ability to make other penis-toting little men (and women!), here are six other crazy things you probably didn’t know penises could do.
1. They’re a semen displacement device
While you probably think of a penis as a device designed to inject semen, it’s also engineered to remove the semen of competitors.
2. They can survive decapitation
Penectomy is a procedure that involves removing part or all of the penis. (It can be necessary if a guy has penis cancer.) But like the headless horseman, the dipstick doesn’t die if you cut off its head. Men can still urinate, have sex, and ejaculate even if the head has been removed.
3. They can predict how his brain works
Men whose flaccid penises hang to the left—and that’s the majority of them—may be “left-brain dominant,” suggests research from the journal of Human Reproduction. Due to developmental hormones, left-brain dominance is also tied to right-handedness, a larger right foot than left, and other forms of body asymmetry, the study authors say. The left brain hemisphere plays a large role in speaking, logic, and mathematical computations. The right brain is big when it comes to spatial and visual information, and pulling context out of a person’s words and tone.
So if his dick dangles to the left, that could help explain why he’s great at figuring out what tip to leave at a restaurant but crappy at guessing why you’re pissed at him right now.
4. They can ejaculate while limp
While boners and ejaculation are usually a package deal, men don’t actually have to be hard to expel semen. A man’s pelvic muscles contract when he ejaculates, but those muscles aren’t directly tied to the processes that make his penis erect. So while unusual, a man can squeeze some out even when he’s flaccid.
5. They smile during sex
When partners are in the missionary position, the penis—including the portion of the shaft inside the vagina—basically forms a smile-shaped curve. Why? Because it’s happy, of course!
