Elizabeth Banks on Penis Size



I got you! I saw Elizabeth Banks while I checked YouTube ( by Jimmy Kimmel Live) and thought, How many hits would this page get in comparison to the others to be posted in the morning?  I am one of those people that does not care too much on penis size (why did I say “not care too much?” instead of “I do care” or “Don’t care?" Because they are nice to look at and play with but otherwise not practical on many occasions). Besides I don’t like extremes.  Not on religion, the political right or left or looks, or size.

I thought I would let you in on why I would add the opinion on this forum on penis size from a straight woman?  Honestly speaking I don’t care but I was dying to know if you care.
Hope you forgive me but at least I am telling you before you watch the clip of what is doing in this blog. Ordinarily this would not be news and still not news.


While Hillary Clinton recuperates from her ‘walking pneumonia’  which wont be long because she is going to go crazy if she stays home for more than a few days (the important thing is that she will be on top condition for the first debate). There is not much news coming from the political trail;
Yes, ’The Donald’ still talking even tweeting at the wee hours of the morning,  every day, repeating his points.
But as it happens He does not make big news unless He says something crazy,  which happens often enough to be inserted on this blog at least 4-5 days a week. He does not make much news without Hillary. Somehow he is listening to his advisors on going easy on her pneumonia while she is sick and not making on issue yet. I am counting the hours to see if he sticks to that forum!

In a Caribbean Village Many Boys are Born Without a Penis”Guevedoce”


Scientists and BBC presenter travelled to the Dominican Republic to meet the ‘Guevedoce' males who do not grow a penis until puberty

This little girl is a boy born without a penis but will develop one at 12








I hated going through puberty; voice cracking, swinging moods, older brother laughing at me. But compared to Johnny, who lives in a small town in the Dominican Republic, I had it easy. 
We came across Johnny when we were filming for a new BBC2 series, “Countdown to Life”, which looks at the consequences of normal, and abnormal, developments in the womb. 
Johnny is known as a “Guevedoce”, which literally means, “penis at twelve”. And the reason he’s called that is because, like 1 in 90 of the boys in the area, he first started to grow a penis when he was going through puberty. 
Guevedoces are also sometimes called “machihembras” meaning “first a woman, then a man”. When they’re born they look like girls with no testes and what appears to be a vagina. It is only when they near puberty that the penis grows and testicles descend. 
Johnny, who is now in his 20s, was once known as Felicita. He was brought up as a girl and remembers going to school in a little red dress. 
When he was young he would happily play with other little girls, but after the age of seven he started to change 
“I did not feel good, I no longer liked to wear a skirt, and I was no longer drawn to play with girls. All I wanted to do is play with toy guns and boys” 
When he turned obviously male he was teased at school because”, as he put it, “it is hard to imagine a girl that is now is a boy”.  
One of the first people to study this unusual condition was Dr Julianne Imperato, a Cornell endocrinologist. She travelled to this remote part of the Dominican Republic in the 1970s because of strange rumours about girls turning into boys 
She eventually unraveled the mystery of what is going on and by doing so helped make a surprising medical breakthrough. 
At conception we all inherit a set of genes from our parents that will, in time instruct our bodies to make us male or female. But for the first few weeks of our lives human embryos are neither. Instead we have a protrusion called a tubercle. If you’re genetically male the Y chromosome instructs the gonads to become testicles. They also send testosterone to the tubercle, where it is converted into a potent hormone called dihydro-testosterone This transforms the tubercle into a penis. If you’re female and don’t make dihydro-testosterone then your tubercle becomes a clitoris. 
When Dr Imperato investigated the Guavadoces she discovered the reason they don’t have male genitalia at birth is because they are deficient in an enzyme called 5-α-reductase, which normally converts testosterone into dihydro-testosterone. So they appear female when they are born, but around puberty, when they get another surge of testosterone, they sprout muscles, testes and a penis. 
Apart from being slightly undersized everything works and the Guavadoces normally live out their lives as men, albeit with wispy beards and small prostates. 
By a quirk of chance Dr Imperato’s research was picked up by the American pharmaceutical giant, Merck. They used her discovery to create a drug called finasteride, which blocks the action of 5-α-reductase. IT is now widely used to treat benign enlargement of the prostate and male pattern baldness. For which, I’m sure, many men are truly grateful 
Since he’s become male Johnny has had a number of short term girlfriends, but he is still looking for the love of his life. “I’d like to get married and have children, a partner who will stand by me through good and bad”, he sighs wistfully.

A Cancer Survivor Receives the First Penis Transplant in the US

Surgeons said Monday they have done the first penis transplant in the U.S., helping a 64-year-old man who lost his organ to cancer. 
Massachusetts General Hospital planned a news conference later Monday to give details about the transplant, which is only the third recorded penis transplant ever done globally. 


"Earlier this month during a 15-hour procedure, surgeons connected the intricate vascular and nerve structures of a donor penis with those of the 64-year-old transplant recipient. The patient continues to recover well," the hospital said in a statement. 

The New York Times interviewed the patient, who it identified as Thomas Manning, a bank courier from Halifax, Massachusetts. 


"I want to go back to being who I was," the newspaper quoted Manning as saying. 
Last year, a South African university said it had performed a successful penis transplant. Later, the patient went on to father a child
China reported an unsuccessful transplant in 2006, saying it was reversed deliberately because the man and his wife did not like the result. 
Penis transplants are complicated. The organ has many blood vessels and nerve endings, and also must connect the urethra to the bladder and to the prostate inside the body. 
Plastic surgeons can perform penile reconstruction using a patient's own skin but a transplant of an entire organ is more complicated. 
 Lab-Grown Penises Lets Bunnies do What Bunnies do Best
Researchers funded by the U.S. military are also working on ways to regenerate penises in the lab for transplant using a patient's own cells. The hope is to help soldiers whose genitals have been damaged by mines and other explosive devices. 
The United Network for organ Sharing says there is one patient on the waiting list for a penile transplant in the United States. The University of Maryland Medical System, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Johns Hopkins Hospital all have approval to perform them.

Sexual Study of 105 Women Rating the Importance of 8 Penile Aspects


                                                                                         

 Changes sought after by average men today. Not related to study.



Women (n = 105) were asked to evaluate photos of surgically repaired genital malformations. They did not know that half the photosets showed “normal”, circumcised genitals.
For every photoset in the questionnaire, women had to indicate on a 4-point scale ranging from total disagreement (1) to full agreement (4) how much they agreed with the statement: “This is a normal (-looking) penis.”

Importance of Penile Aspects

In the questionnaire, women were also asked how important they consider eight different aspects of a penis on a 5-point scale ranging from very unimportant (1) to very important (5). The penile aspects were penile length, penile girth, position and shape of meatus, shape of glans, appearance of scrotum, shape of penile skin, appearance of pubic hair, and general cosmetic appearance. These penile aspects were chosen based on the Penile Perception Score (PPS) [12] and the work of Mureau et al. [13] and Winter [14].
We were not sure whether the exposure to multiple photos of HASRGs would affect the way women looked at genitals, with a possible influence on their evaluation of particular aspects of the appearance. Consequently, one half of the women (n = 55) evaluated the importance of the penile aspects before rating photosets of HASRGs and the other half (n = 50) after rating photosets of HASRGs.

Sexuality of Women

Furthermore, the questionnaire included questions on women's own sexuality (e.g. numbers of sexual partners). A short Sexual Interest Scale (on the basis of the work of Bucher et al. [15] ) was calculated by the averaged sum of two items, women's level of sexual desire and women's frequency of masturbation for the last 3 months. Both items were scored as follows: 0 = never, 1 = less than once a month; 2 = once a month; 3 = twice or three times a month; 4 = once a week; 5 = twice or three times a week; and 6 = every or nearly every day.

Socioeconomic Status (SES)

SES for adults was calculated on the basis of their education and occupation, and SES for adolescents was calculated on the basis of maternal education and paternal occupation. Education and occupation were scored on a 6-point scale. SES scores (range: 2–12 points) were subdivided into three social classes: lower (2–5 points); middle (6–9 points), and upper (10–12 points). This measure has proven to be a reliable and valid indicator of SES [16].

Procedure

The study was approved by the ethical committee of the Canton of Zurich, which is responsible for approval of all research studies. All selected women received an information letter about the study. Those who were interested were asked to return a signed consent form. Women younger than 18 years old had to provide a consent form signed by their parents to participate. After a few months, a reminder was sent to all nonresponders.
Adolescents were interviewed at school and adults at the hospital. After answering the questionnaires, participants had the opportunity to talk to a psychologist.

Statistical Analysis

Data were analyzed with SPSS (version 16) for Windows (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). A P < 0.05 was considered significant. Two-sided tests were performed for all calculations. Effect sizes (Cohen's d) were calculated to show the clinical relevance of group differences [17]. Mann–Whitney U-tests were performed for comparisons of the ratings of penile aspects that were made before and after the evaluation of photosets. Wilcoxon tests were computed regarding the appraisal of photosets.
Two multiple regression analyses were computed. After square-root transformation, both dependent variables were normally distributed (Kolmogorov–Smirnov test). Dependent variables were “normality of penile look of HASRGs” and “normality of penile look of circumcised genitals.” According to their significance in bivariate correlations with the dependent variable and based on a priori assumptions, the following predictors were chosen: age, number of sexual partners, sexual interest, importance of penile length, importance of position and shape of the meatus, and importance of general cosmetic appearance.

Results                    

Characteristics of the Study Sample

Table 1 shows the demographic and sexual characteristics of the final study sample consisting of 105 women in three different age groups with a mean age of 28.37 years (SD = 9.65). Regarding their sexual experiences, only 18 of 33 women (54.5%) in the youngest age group (16–20 years) reported that they had experience of sexual intercourse. In contrast, all participants of the two older age groups (25–30 years and 40–45 years) had experience of sexual intercourse.

Rugby Player KorbinSims Grabs Penis of Willie Nelson



Korbin Sims of Newcastle in Australia’s National Rugby League grabbed the penis of Willie Mason, a former teammate who now plays for Manley, during a game Saturday. I for my self will make no comments. I show the evidence and you tell me when was it you saw a guy grabbing another guys dick while he knows it and just smiles. Thanks to Outsports.com for the Pics and story. THANK YOU! Adam


"I thought it was hilarious," Mason said. "I hope it doesn't [get Sims in trouble] because me and Korbin are really good mates and I think it was just unlucky, the timing of it all. I knew what he was doing - I was talking to him while he was doing it. I was sort of laughing, I didn't flinch. I knew what was going on. It was quite funny to me. He's just a good, young kid and I would hope nothing would be done about something like that.
"That's just two teammates for the last three years having a good old ... reacquaintance."

Where is the Beef? The beef is Scientists ARE very Interested on Your Penis size

Researchers have finally answered one of the most compelling questions in the field of medicine: What is a normal size for a penis?

The answer, according to anatomically precise measurements of up to 15,521 men from around the world, is 3.6 inches (9.16 centimeters) in the resting state and 5.2 inches (13.12 centimeters) when erect. 
These average lengths are just two of the findings reported in BJU International, the official journal of the British Assn. of Urological Surgeons and a handful of other medical societies. But before we move on to more of their results, let’s pause for another question:

Why should anyone spend any amount of time trying to figure this out?
 

The research team – from King’s College London, King's College NHS Foundation Trust and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust – offered several reasons. A scientifically validated answer may help doctors reassure men with conditions like “small penis anxiety” or body dysmorphic disorder who suffer considerable distress due to the size of their organ. It could also help manufacturers design better condoms with lower failure rates.

So the group conducted an exhaustive search for published studies with reliable assessments of penile length and girth. To qualify, studies had to include 50 or more male volunteers who were at least 17 years old. Would-be participants were excluded if they suffered from erectile dysfunction or had any physical abnormalities, including implants. Only studies with careful measurements taken by health professionals were included in the analysis.
 
The researchers wound up with 20 studies that evaluated thousands of men. They assumed that if they plotted all the measurements, the distribution of penis sizes would fall along a bell curve. Then they used that to come up with charts that displayed length and girth by percentile.

It takes 3.6 inches from the root of the penis to the tip of the glans to hit the 50th percentile for flaccid length. That means 68% of men measure between 3 and 4.2 inches, and 95% are in the 2.4- to 4.8-inch range.

Furthermore, with an average length of 5.2 inches for an erect penis, 68% of men measure between 4.5 and 5.8 inches and 95% are in the 3.9- and 6.5-inch range.
 

The average circumference, or girth, of a resting penis is 3.7 inches (9.31 cm); for an erect penis, it's 4.6 inches (11.66 cm).

Their investigation presented an opportunity for the researchers to test the validity of the folklore surrounding penis size. They found no convincing support in the data for the idea that penis size is correlated with the length of one’s index finger or the ratio of the length of the second and fourth fingers. Nor was there any good evidence that foot size was a predictor of penis size. Age, body mass index and testicular volume were also unrelated.
 
However, the data did show that height offered some predictive value for estimating penis length. The correlation was weak but statistically significant, according to the study.

The overwhelming majority of men included in the analysis were Caucasian or Middle Eastern, and only a few hundred were of African or Asian descent. That made it impossible “to draw any conclusions about any differences in penile size across different races,” the researchers wrote.


Despite the large number of men included in the study, the researchers said their results might be biased if well-endowed men were more inclined to be measured. They also acknowledged that the findings – though intended to provide reassurance to most people – could prompt up to half of all men to feel “defective” or “abnormal” upon learning that their measurements are below average.

If so, a 2006 study from the journal Psychology of Men & Masculinity might make some of them feel better. After surveying more than 52,000 people, researchers from UCLA and CSULA found that while 45% of men wished they had a larger penis, 85% of women thought their partner’s organs were just fine.

If scientists research it, we will tell you about it! Follow me on Twitter @LATkarenkaplan and “like” Los Angeles Times Science & Health on Facebook.
