How can you remove hair from around the penis?

If I were you, I would shave it or wax it, but if you shave then very very AND I MEAN VERY carefully.

Hair removal cream, pluck. Each method has it's risks and pain level.

The most common way for a male to remove unwanted pubic hair is to shave carefully and slowly with plenty of shaving cream and warm water.

Be very careful if you use depilatory crèmes. Some of these contain strong alkalis you don't want anywhere near sensitive areas. (I'm not sure I'd want them anywhere near any of me!)

When do boys start producing sperm?

Boys start producing sperm in their semen once they have started puberty. It may take a while for the production to begin but it will have by the time puberty has ended.

At first masturbation will produce a small amount of clear watery sticky fluid on ejaculation, this will be the Semen. As he gets further into puberty this will change into a thicker whiter/creamy fluid which the sperm is transported in.

Boys bodies do not begin to produce sperm until they have begun puberty. The age at which boys begin puberty is very variable and differs from one boy to another. Any age between around 9 years of age and 16 is considered to be within the normal range for puberty to start although on average most boys begin puberty around 11 or 12 years of age. They generally begin to produce sperm around a year after puberty has begun.

Immature germ cells (spermatogonia) are dormant in the boys testes from fetal life. They do not divide and mature into sperm until Puberty has begun. Sperm will not be able to be ejaculated through masturbation until a boy is underway into puberty.

How long till Viagra starts to work?

As with any drug, each person may experience different absorption times. The directions suggest to take it one hour before relations, however that is conservative on the long end because the maker doesn't want to state a shorter time because that may not be the case for very few men. My experience is 10 minutes, but it will intensify in 20 minutes. You asked, "start" to work and that is 10 minutes. It also has a positive mental effect, in that you are confident it will work, therefore you already think it is. If you are going to eat a meal, take it before that to ensure it is absorbed first. You can drink alcohol, but not to excess. I know of no drug conflict, but drinking will diminish it's effect, just as drinking and not taking it would.

Additionally, it is not necessary to take the entire pill. My experience is that only a small portion of a 1mg pill will work effectively; that being 1/6 of a pill. I break it in half, then cut it into 3rds. Hold over a piece of paper, because it will leave the inside "dust", which you can recover from the paper. Inside the outer coating is like chalk. I know that sound small and it is, but it does work, at least for me. If it doesn't, try another piece. There's nothing wrong with taking more, but I see no need to take more than you need and it is economical as well. You can't get more than fully erect, so why waste it?

The problem with taking more, such as even half a pill (which I would never do) is that if sex does not occur, you will certainly wish it would and that can be frustrating.

You will not necessarily be physically be aware when it is working unless you have some kind of mental or physically stimulation. This can consist of only taking a leak and touching yourself or concentrating on having sex. When you are exposed to either or both of these, you will know that it is working and expect an erection within 30 seconds and you will stay that way until you orgasm or the stimulation is interrupted or ends. However after the suggested hour, you definitely will get an erection with the slightest touch. You probably won't want to go 4 hours or more with an erection coming and going, so plan carefully or you might have to excuse yourself for a few minutes to take care of that. Major distractions will negate it's effectiveness and render it useless and unnoticeable. An example of this would be an argument or an emergency. It does not force and erection on its own, but easily allows one.

Side effects are mild, but many men, including myself have reported a light flushing in the face, but I doubt noticeable. This is a very mild warming of the cheeks for the most part. It does raise the heart beat and depending on your build, you may be the only one to notice this, as the heart rate increases when aroused anyway, but it can be distinct. However that can be a good thing, because it tells you it is working. The flushing subsides relatively quickly and after you take it a few times, you don't think much about it. The heart rate however persists, yet decreases over time.

Another effect, maybe not a side effect, is that you may mentally want to have sex more under its influence, simply because YOU know you have taken it and YOU know why and expect to, and you are anticipating sex.

There are other prescription alternatives, but I have tried only one; Levitra. This pill is round and smaller and a few dollars more expensive, at about $15 per pill. The advantage to this small wonder is that I have not experienced any side effects and it works as fast and the lasting effects are much longer, without the relatively immediate desire to have sex, but spread over a longer time. It works just as well, but you don't mentally feel like you must have sex right now, unless you get that mental and physical stimulation as mentioned above. In that case, you will be ready. This more calm approach might be because I know it will last longer and I don't need to be in that 4 hour window that Viagra is said to work.

Another effect of Levitra is it's like a battery. It is not limited to one encounter or 4 hours. If you have sex tonight, you might also tomorrow morning. This is good for three reasons. If you don't have sex tonight, you can still count on it working in the morning. Or, if you have sex tonight, you can also have sex in the morning. Or, if you have sex tonight, you can have sex again tonight. It is possible to begin again in 10 or so minutes after the first orgasm. Obviously, the second time will take longer to achieve orgasm, but it can be very rewarding. In contrast, Viagra is like a match; it only works once.

Is there any type of supplement that a man can take to help his facial hair grow?

There are no accepted or approved treatments or supplements that increase the rate of facial hair growth. However, there are a few supplements been shown to help with the health of the hair, which may help it to grow better. The main natural products that help with hair health are Biotin, Silica, MSM, and L-Cysteine, so you could try any or all of them. Facial hair for men is a secondary sexual characteristic mainly controlled by blood levels of testosterone and estrogen, influenced in large part by genes/race.

Rogaine and Propecia do not increase the rate of hair growth and have only been shown to be effective in restoration of hair growth in male pattern baldness.

Why does a doctor hold your testicles while you cough?

The reason that a doctor performs this examination is to check for a Varicocele. A Varicocele is a swollen varicose vein that may be in the scrotum and is usually on the left side. The physician checks for a hernia, which is when a portion of the intestine decends into the pubic area, and possibly into the testes. When you cough, your abdomen expands/contracts, therefore moving the intestine if it has descended. The doctor can feel this, and determine whether or not you have a hernia. This question has been answered by a healthcare professional, not an M.D.

Is it normal for the exposed glans of an intact penis to be painfuly sensitive when touched?

Yes the exposed glans of an intact penis can be very sensitive especially when it has not been exposed on a regular basis.however you my be confusing pain with senitivity. It is normal for the glans to be sensitive because the glans is highly enervated and protected by the foreskin. it will become less sensitive and easier to deal with over time. Both the glans and the iner mucal surface of the prepuce (foreskin) are very sensitive parts of the penis and can a first be so sensitive that hey may be difficult to handle.

But how do you distinguish between hurt and sensitiveness ?

Its easier to masturbate with the foreskin over the glans but does hurt (not really but the sensation is just too weird) when you touch the glans directly. How to enjoy the weird sensation ? Is there any kind of reading material available on the same ?

I have this problem, I am uncut and touching my glans with my bare hands is uncomfortable and can be painful if I do it a lot, luckily the tongue and lips are soft enough that it causes no pain or discomfort at all, but if you don't have a willing partner or just can't bend that way, I find a good lubricant usually helps, Ansell Lifestyles 'silky smooth' is the best that I have found. (But see below.)

I have exactly the same problem Soreness/Sensitivity of the glans, I have been told it's very normal especially as I have very very rarely pulled my foreskin back I have been advised to roll the foreskin back and hold the glans between finger and thumb under water, to get the head used to being touched. I am going to try this over the next few weeks to see how I get on. I have always had this problem but just lived with it.

[By the way, it's worth noting that the word 'glans' is singular, not plural.]

The glans is an internal organ designed to be exposed on each thrust within a vagina during sexual intercourse. It is kept supple, protected and naturally lubricated by the foreskin when the penis is flaccid. The foreskin is innervated with multiple nerves which activate when masturbation or sexual penetration occurs.

After ejaculation takes place - either through masturbation or sexual intercourse - the glans is intensely sensitive. Any touch by clothing or fingers on the exposed glans is similar to accidentally knocking our humerus (funny bone). But the sensation is clouded with such an intense mix of sensitivity and relative pain, we recoil from any touch. This is nature's way of 'correcting' us if we leave our foreskin still retracted after ejaculation.

Males circumcised as infants, or at any time before puberty, can never know the pleasure of owning a foreskin. Grown, circumcised, adult males will say, "I'm just fine as I am," never knowing what they missed!

So, yes... it's normal and wonderful that the glans of an intact penis is so marvelously sensitive - even if you touch it when erect. All it is telling you is that it's working properly!

When you are still young and your penis is left intact it is normal for you to find that the glans of the penis is extremely sensitive, to the point where this may be confused with pain. However in time the sensation will become bearable and give you the pleasure that circumcised penises will never be able to give. Just be a little patient. Many circumcised males, young and old, find they need artificial lubrication to masturbate satisfactorily; whereas intact males don't. Happily, the inner foreskin is self-lubricating. It's all part of nature's perfect design.

intact men's heads are very sensitive when they circumcise you they take away all the sensitivity that why its better to have foreskin

Be proud to be intact first off, but to answer your question, your penis is more sensitive because the foreskin is protecting the head of your penis from minor abrasions that occur in your underwear from day to day. If it is so uncomfortable or painful, speak to your doctor, maybe he can shed some light on the subject!

If you are worried about the sensitivity of your penis or it's giving you pain, please consult your doctor for more information and help

At first the head of the intact penis is very sensitive and you may well confuse it with pain However given a little time and adequate lubrication when handling it you will soon get used to it.

play with it. touch it, but lightly. it will toughen it up a bit. if you have a partner, encourage them to use their tongue. a bit of masturbation using a lubricant will help get it under control as well and it feels good too.
