When you go to the doctor you are normally asked if you are having pain. If you answer "yes," the next question is, how much pain, on a 0 to 10 scale ("0" being no pain and "10" being the worst pain you've ever had). Women often use the delivery of a baby as their reference point for their worst pain. What would you use as your point of reference to answer the pain question? In other words, what's the worst pain you've ever experienced?View Thread
"If your right eye offends you pluck it out and if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off." Matthew 5: 29-30. Not an exact quote, but close... I'm pretty sure that refers to getting rid of things in your life that cause you to stumble spiritually whereas Circumcision was a sign of obedience and sacrifice for the Hebrew people.
I'm also happily in possession of all the foreskin I was born with. I think a circumcised penis looks sad and kind of pathetic. I always feel sorry for the guy, who probably has no idea what he's missing. Others like Rokk_man have a different opinion, which is fine too.View Thread
Not strange at all. I usually go in the sauna nude (as do the majority of the men who use the sauna) at my gym, because it's right by the shower entrance. I've seen plenty of sexual acting out by some of the guys there, but nothing about it causes me to become erect.
I wear compression shorts to run/work out because I have big "hangers" not to conceal a boner.View Thread
In the front seat of a 4-seater Cessna circling over Phoenix, flying with two friends, both doctors, to a conference. It was taking a long time getting clearance to land. Fortunately the pilot/owner had a urinal (piss bottle) aboard. Too much coffee before take-off from Gallup, NM, I guess.View Thread
Dribbling is pretty common for men from the 5th dacede of life on upward. It can be prostate-related, but sometimes it's just a loss of sphincter tone as we age. It can be a side effect to certain medications and/or diet (caffeine might aggravate the problem). It's annoying, but most of us come to terms with the fact that it takes a little more time to finish up after urinating (more "shakes", more squeezing or milking down, etc.) Even jumping up and down a couple of times can help prevent accidents.View Thread
Rokk_man is right and so was his doc. Longer erect penises are statistically more likely to have a curve. Those average or smaller ( less than 6") are more likely to be straight. All very normal. Not to be confused with Peyronie's Disease (an erection curve that wasn't present before). That condition needs prompt treatment or it can get worse.View Thread
I have never gotten an erection during a genital or prostate exam. Yes, have "leaked" prostate fluid during a prostate exam.
As a military medic for 24 years, I've performed countless genital and prostate exams. An erection is certainly a normal. but not a very FREQUENT occurrance, in my experience. The best professional response is to ignore it. If something must be said, it would be "not to worry...it happens sometimes."
I've discovered from the men's health board that there are people with doctor's office fetishes and fantasies. Some guys also might be misunderstanding why they're being handed a tissue after the exam. Basically it's to wipe the excess lube off of your rear-end before you pull your shorts back up.
As far as position, patient standing is best for testicle/ hernia exam, with the examiner seated in front of him. Patient standing and bending forward from the waist, with his chest resting on the exam table and bearing his weight on one leg is easiest for prostate exam. If a patient is elderly or weak, I might have him lay on the table on his side with his upper leg (hip and knee flexed) for prostate check. (Some docs might have been trained differently.)View Thread
1. 4 to 4.5" flaccid 2. 5.5" long and 5.5" around erect 3. more of a show-er than grower, but OK with it. 4. straight, angles up 5. shave testicles and base of shaft every day or two 6. Testicles are large and hang pretty low. I admit to loving the feeling except when I sit on them. Sitting down requires an "adjustment."View Thread
