Asking important male organ questions doesn't always come naturally for men. While they might enjoy kidding around with their buddies, the idea of talking to a doctor about something so sensitive tends to make most guys cringe. Understanding how the organ works is of vital importance, however, as men who grasp the biology basics are in a better position to care for their bodies and get help when something goes wrong. Here are a few common questions that can help men to get a jump start on their male organ education.
1. Does Bigger Always Mean Better?
Adult film connoisseurs might swear that a big male organ is vital to the happiness of a partner. This isn't always true. In fact, the average man's male organ isn't remarkably long when firm, and the average partner doesn't much care. Men who focus on position, on foreplay and on timing tend to draw rave reviews, no matter their size, while those who focus exclusively on size comparisons may be much too nervous to even engage in intimate relations. In general, it's best to focus on what the male organ can do when it comes to intimacy, and leave the locker room comparisons aside.

2. Can Circumcision Change Sensitivity Levels?
In order to find the definitive answer to this question, scientists would need to build a time machine and allow the same group of men to live once without being cut and once after being cut. Obviously, that's not going to happen in the near future, so studies regarding sensitivity between the circumcised and the uncircumcised might not even be helpful. For the time being, it's safe to say that being circumcised could cut down on sensitivity levels for some men, as there are some receptor tissues in the sheath. However, most men still claim that intimacy feels good, no matter whether they've had surgery.

3. How Often do Men Experience Tumescence Each Day?
The number can vary dramatically from man to man, but the typical guy sports a stiff member dozens of times during an average day. Many of these take place while a man is sleeping, and others come about due to a sensual prompt, such as a willing partner. But it's not uncommon for men younger than 30 to deal with unwanted firmness due to very subtle stimuli, such as a vibrating bus seat or a whiff of a familiar perfume.
4. How Common Are Performance Issues?
When a man can't get hard even though he desperately wants too might feel completely isolated and alone. It might be comforting to know that almost every guy has difficulty with performance at least once during his lifetime. Physical illnesses can impact blood flow, as can mental health concerns like depression or anxiety. Even alcohol can impact the ability of the male organ to fill up and swell up. Transient male function problems aren't typically cause for concern, and they tend to fade away when the underlying issue is addressed. That said, dysfunction problems that persist for months might merit a trip to the doctor.
